I tried really hard to fit Thor: Ragnarok into my Top 5 because I love the director, Taika Waititi – he’s one of my favorites – and I did really love the film, but I just couldn’t do it because I feel like there was a lack of serious moments that would have elevated the film if they were there. But I loved the Thor/Hulk dynamic, I love Valkyrie, and the tone of the film. Here is a link to my full review here: Thor: Ragnarok review
