Title: Thor: Ragnarokmv5bmjmyndkzmzi1of5bml5banbnxkftztgwodcxodg5mji-_v1_uy1200_cr9006301200_al_
Year: 2017
Director: Taika Waititi
Genre: Action
Category: #42 A movie recommended by a friend

Ah yes, another Marvel movie for my list. Honestly, I skipped the second Thor film until recently as you know but I’m glad I got to this one immediately. This one was so funny that I spent most of it laughing, the new characters and location were just great and it was full of surprises.

I definitely don’t want to spoil this one for you except to say that it really was great to see what Hulk has been up to for the last little while. Also, it was interesting to see more of the Avengers fighting against one another. I’m excited to see everyone pull together next year for Infinity Wars.

Rating: 4.5/5 stars


Carol (2015)

Title: Carolcarol_film_poster
Year: 2015
Director: Todd Haynes
Genre: Drama/LGBT
Category: #2 An LGBT film

Again, I’m going to leave out the date watched so we can get through these a bit quicker. Besides, it’s been quite a while since I watched this one.

As soon as I heard about Carol I was sure I was going to watch it. In part because it’s an LGBT film and in part because I love Cate Blanchett.

I’m not quite sure what I was expecting from this movie though. I think it did kind of deliver despite that. It’s a little bit melancholy a little bit coming of age (in your 20’s) and also a little bit romantic.

The relationship between these two is a little bit strange though and I think maybe that’s because there’s just not a lot in the way of chemistry between them even though they both did a great job in their parts.

I do think it did a great job of exploring the realization that there’s something not quite right in your life and doing something to try and fix that.
