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.

Here we have another Marvel comic turned into a Hollywood movie, sometimes they nail it and sometimes they manage to disappoint the Marvel fans.
“Doctor Strange” is about, well a Doctor by the name of Stephen Strange an egotistical man who believes he’s the best in everything and people should bow down to him. Until one day he’s in a car crash, his surgical hands ruined by the crash. So you know the ego he got he will try everything to fix his hands even if he have to go absolutely broke to do it. He ends up in Katmandu learning the art of magic. And because of the man he is, he is expecting to have everything handed to him but he does end up studying and learning.
And of course the film got a bad guy, Kaecilius, he has a delusion of bringing the dark world into our world and thinking everything will be okay. So the other sorcerers have to work together to stop this man, it just won’t be so easy.
If you keep watching even after it ended you will see a scene with Doctor Strange and Thor having a conversation about…. well, have a look at the scene and see for yourself.
Actors: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton and many more.
I had the pleasure watching The Imitation Game this weekend and I have to say it was an extraordinary film. Benedict Cumberbatch was excellent as Alan Turing in this true based film about a mathematician trying to crack enigma with fellow mathematicians.
Alan Turing is brilliant person but slightly arrogant. The Imitation Game is about Alan Turing – the guy who we can thank for today for having computers. Alan Turing worked for the government in second world war to crack a code that the Germans was using. All Alan had to do was to build a machine who would help them. He had to write a letter to Churchill to get the funding for the machine because the man in charge of the operation wouldn’t. He wanted to find any reason to kick out Alan. So, Alan Turing builds his machine but it won’t work yet. Him and the others are trying to find a reason to why, they have been given a month while his boss trying to find a Soviet spy at the complex. Which they think is Alan Turing.
Also, Alan Turing trying to keep his sexual preferences a secret. Since homosexuality was illegal back then. He proposes to a female mathematician who been helping Alan in secret with his machine. Her family didn’t want her to be there and he had to hide his sexuality. She was fine with that, she liked his mind and their discussions. But Alan being who he was ended it all. In 1954 Alan Turing ended up killing himself and not being given any credit for his work for the government top-secret project to break the enigma. In 2013 the Queen herself gave Alan Turings family an open apology and gave him credit for his work and lifted his sentence for being homosexual and he had to take pills for chemical castration.
The Imitation Game shows you the adventure and fascinating journey that Alan Turing took when he was working at this project that civilians got read and see about so many years after the war. It’s a film that you REALLY have to see in your life.
You see actors like Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Jack Tarlton and many more.
