“Korg, the rock monster played by Taika Waititi himself, is one of the funniest characters in the movie, and introduces himself with a rock, paper, scissors joke when he first meets Thor.
But there’s more. At the end of the film, we see that Korg has accidentally crushed his blade-armed alien gladiator friend, thinking he killed him. Though the alien wakes up, the joke there probably sailed over everyone’s head. Rock beat scissors.
And if you want to go deeper than that, Korg explains to Thor how he tried to start a revolution but failed because he didn’t print enough pamphlets. Paper beat rock.
This is just too good. Too damn good, Waititi. Amazing.”
“Last time we saw you, you were trying to kill everyone. What are you up to these days?” “It varies from moment to moment.”
“Darling, you have no idea what’s possible.”
“You do seem like you’re in desperate need of leadership.”
“I’m upset! I’m very upset. You know what I like about being upset? Blame. Right now, that’s the mindset that I’m in. And you know who I’m blaming?”
“You’re officially pardoned… from life!”
“It hurts, doesn’t it? Being lied to. Being told you’re one thing and then learning it’s all a fiction.”
“Well, I tried to start a revolution, but didn’t print enough pamphlets so hardly anyone turned up. Except for my mum and her boyfriend, who I hate. As punishment, I was forced to be in here and become a gladiator. Bit of a promotional disaster that one, but I’m actually organizing another revolution. I don’t know if you’d be interested in something like that? Do you reckon you’d be interested?”
“Piss off, ghost!”
“Please, kind sir, do not cut my hair. NO! NOOO!”
“The revolution has begun!”
“I guess I’ll have to go it alone. Like I’ve always done.”
“Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Korg. I’m kind of like the leader in here. I’m made of rocks, as you can see, but don’t let that intimidate you. You don’t need to be afraid, unless you’re made of scissors! Just a little Rock, Paper, Scissors joke for you.”
“You know, I used to want to be a Valkyrie when I was younger, until I found out you were all women. There’s nothing wrong with women, of course, I like women. Sometimes a little too much. Not in a creepy way, just more like a respectful appreciation. I think it’s great, an elite force of women warriors.”
“No, I don’t have a phone, but you could have sent an electronic letter. It’s called an email.”
“Whatever she is, we can stop her, together. We can face her, together.”
