Warner Bros. has long touted their approach as hiring great directors and letting them stamp their own style on the DC movies.
Marvel has been doing that since Jon Favreau directed Iron Man – and they’ve done it again with Thor: Ragnarok. No one but Taika Waititi could have made this delightfully oddball comedy of a superhero movie.
My main issue with the other two Thor movies were how cheap both of them looked. That’s not the case with Thor: Ragnarok. Director Taika Waititi delivers a fast paced, quip filled movie that has a rainbow of cotton candy colors and riotous set design work that still left me feeling a bit let down. It’s perfectly innocuous entertainment that’s worth watching once and enjoying. However, you’ll most likely forget about it after you leave the theater.

With Thor: Ragnarok, the series moves away from the darkness of its immediate predecessor, Thor: The Dark World, and back into the sense of fun that propelled Thor – winning rave reviews and favorable comparisons with Christopher Reeve’s take on Superman.
