Thor: Ragnarok (2017) **REVIEW**

When we first met Thor he was basically a party boy who wouldn’t listen to his father’s advice. Everything was a game to him. Then he got into the Avengers. But we never understood Thor’s powers, til Ragnarok.

 

Thor is out in the universe looking for the infinity stones but when he comes back to Asgaard something isn’t exactly right.. but it doesn’t take him long to figure out what. Dear  old Loki – God of mischief. He had put Odin in New York and took his place. And this is where Thor meets Dr Strange who tells him where Odin is – Norway. But they need to hurry, Odin is sick. And here is where the biggest secret Odin kept from everyone. Odin has a daughter. We all thought Thor was the first-born but no. Hela is the first-born. Back when her and Odin ruled the 9 realms by fear and blood. Odin kept her imprisoned for her thirst for blood and war grew stronger. Soon as Odin had taken his goodbye to his boys he passed. And so the gateway to Hela’s prison opened up.

So now Thor & Loki gotta fight her but something goes wrong on the way back to Asgaard. Thor gets taken captive so fight in an arena, very similar to Gladiators. Where he meets… wait for it… HULK. So they gotta fight each other but here’s where things get interesting. Hulk doesn’t remember much so what happened really when Banner left? We get a taste test of Thor’s true powers because Hela DESTROYED the hammer.

Thor knows that only way for him to get Asgaard back from Hela and save the people is for team up with Hulk, Loki and a woman. A woman who captured him and sold him to the games. He heard by rumor that she is a Asgaardian, when he see’s her tattoo. Her knows EXACTLY who she is – Valkyrie

Thor is filled with great humor, wit and the thing that always works – awesome fighting scenes. I am most impressed by how we finally got to see Thor’s true powers and they work but I am sure we get to see more of it when Avangers come out with new film I think next year. Take your friends and go see Thor: Ragnarok today, it’s absolutely amazing.

Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) **REVIEW**

We all jumped on the hype when the very first Transformers film was released, we all thought it was awesome. I can say I do miss seeing original actors in the latest ones, specially this one..

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ we see the world in dismay when it comes to Transformers, they are now considered illegal and to be hunted and killed on sight. Cade Yeager is now a fugitive and living in an Indian reservoir and giving sanctuary to some of the robots. We get to see flashbacks to old England – Camelot, King Arthur & Merlin. Yeager travels to England after being sent for, a secret society have kept the Transformers secret for CENTURIES. descendants from the knights of Camelot. We also get to see the robots home world and that thing isn’t pretty or nice. So that world is travelling to our world to destroy it to become more powerful.

As always, we get to see an epic battle, last descendant from Merlin himself. More Transformers we haven’t seen before to fight next to everyone. And at the end, they gave a hint that it might be another film. ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ was a good film but by now they are predictable. You get scenes that are absolutely funny due to Anthony Hopkins and his feisty, psycho robot. They where a fresh air.

Other than all that, yes it was a good action film but not one of their best ones.

Actors: Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Laura Haddock, Isabela Moner, Stanley Tucci and many more.

Solace (2015) **REVIEW**

I never thought I’d see the day for when Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins to be in the same film and this time – Mr Hopkins is the good guy here.

Joe and Kathrine and FBI agents hunting down a serial killer and Joe contact an old friend – John. A man who is a psychic. He can see the past and future just by reading you. After a bit of convincing John agrees to work with Joe and Kathrine to catch this killer. When Joe is all for working with John, Kathrine stays unsure. She doesn’t believe in supernatural or psychic until one evening when John tells a little something about Kathrine just by reading her.

When the FBI thinks they are getting closer or getting somewhere in the investigation the killer is always two steps ahead. So how do they catch a killer who’s always two steps ahead? But they do know one thing – the killings are mercy kills. The victims are one way or another sick with terminal illness.

Solace is one of those films that they couldn’t have made without the cast they had. Anthony Hopkins always brings his best into his roles and this one is no exception. It’s a good mystery/thriller that I believe anyone should see.

You see actors like Abbie Cornish, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell and many more.

 

NOAH **REVIEW**

After some time I finally got around to see this movie. And I gotta say, it’s something else. In a very good way.

The film begins when Noah as a small child with his father but we also get to see how Noah’s father get brutally murdered. But what the killer doesn’t see is that Noah is hidden.

Then we see Noah again, as a man with a family of his own. The creator shows him a dream what he must do to save the world. But first Noah doesn’t see the message so he decides to take his family to see his grandfather who he is sure will help him understand the message. During his trip to his grandfather, a fallen angel also known as The Watcher helps Noah and his family to his grandfather. Other Watchers think these humans are the same as the ones who almost destroyed the world.. But they get to see their own miracle and understand – Noah isn’t like any other human as they are used to meet.

Now.. Will Noah be able to help his family and all the animals to safety by building this big ark boat? Will he be done in time? And what kind of dangers and obsticles will Noah and his family meet? I would recommend this movie anyone who wish to see it.

You see actors such as Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and many more.
