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.

Creed (2015) **REVIEW**

As some of you may have heard this film features Rocky Balboa – and now you’re thinking great another Rocky movie. Let me stop you right there. Yes, this film features Rocky but he is not the main character this time. And if you’re scared of spoilers – please do not continue reading this post.

Adonis Johnson – a troubled kid who want somewhere to belong. One day in juvenile detention his late fathers wife takes Adonis in as her own to give him somewhere to belong he moves in with her in L.A. Several years later – he is doing well for himself but he loved boxing. And he boxes in Mexico. As Adonis tries to have a trainer in L.A to train him – nobody seems to want to take on that job.

So he quits his job and moves. To Philadelphia. He tracks down Rocky Balboa and trying to have him to train him. As Adonis trying to convince Rocky to train him as he wants to be trained by the best – Rocky finds out who his father is – Apollo Creed. A few days go by and Rocky decides to help him and it’s not long before the media finds out who Adonis is and he gets offered a fight of his lifetime – if he agrees to change his name to Creed.


Creed is an excellent film with a great story line and excellent actors. We see some old timers regulars from Rocky Balboa films. I wouldn’t say it’s a family film due to violence and blood. But you should most definitely see this film this year.

You see actors like Michael B Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Tony Bellew and many more.
