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.

Family/Animated Week: How To train Your Dragon 2 (2014) **REVIEW**

Hiccup and Toothless are back in a second film. In the second film is 5 years later and everything is different in the village. Astrid and Hiccups are engaged, Hiccups and Toothless are closer than ever. Even though Jiccups lost his leg in the first film he made some

A lot have changed in the village. Now they have something called dragon racing and that looks so much fun. Hiccups is all grown up and we see the dragons living in the village like they belong there. Everything been dragon proofed of course and they have a big cave for them to sleep in. Since we see more dragons in this film I have to say they act more or less like cats and dogs. It’s so cute and a bit funny.

While Hiccup is flying he comes across a mysterious rider he investigates and Hiccups find out it’s his mother, who believed been dragon food 20 years ago. She lives in a cave FILLED with dragons and calls it safe haven for dragons with a huge alpha who takes care of them. During all of this a new enemy lurks in the shadows – Drago and his dumb errand boy Eret. Now Hiccup, Stoick, Valka and the entire island have to come together to fight Drago and his madness plan. You’ll also see a new side of Toothless – a good side. Even Eret might surprise you in the end!

Still, this movie is also for any age, no matter if you’re 2 or 90 you will come to love this film.

Voice actors: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Djimon Hounsou, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harington and many more.

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES **REVIEW** – SPOILER ALERT

The last of the amazing The Hobbit series.. I got the chance to see it last night at the cinema and I was so excited to see this one, almost counting down the days for the premiere.

When the second The Hobbit movie ended we saw Smaug waking up and heading for Lake Town. The other dwarfs and Bilbo could see from the mountain the destroying of Lake Town, but Thorin couldn’t care what happened to them – all he started care about was his gold. The others started to fear for his sanity. Bard manage to fill his destiny and puts an arrow in Smaug. Now when the dragon is dead – the word of his death spreads fast. Thranduil takes his army over to the mountain to collect what was stolen from his people, but Thorin feels it his and not Thranduil’s. The humans seeks refuge by the mountain where an old town was, but Thorin thinks they want his gold. The orchs are marching for the mountain, dwarfs are arriving to help Thorin defend the mountain. But what it all sets to be isn’t what anyone had in mind, the war for the mountain begins. While Gandalf, Galadriel, Elrond & Saruman gets to see what evil hides, same evil as Gandalf warned them about.

How will the war end? Will everyone fight for their right to live and not to be slaughtered like animals?

Yes, I can recommend this movie to anyone who seen the other 2 movies in the triology. You see actors like Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Martin Freeman, Hugo Weaving & Christopher Lee + many many more.
