man. Remember the first time you watched Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Dir. Taika Waititi and hela asked thor ‘what were you the god of again?’ and then it went to loki smirking and you KNEW something good was coming. And then immigrant song started to kick in and the LIGHTING started and you felt your SOUL leave your body and go to another plan of existance. Then Thor desending lighting and all onto that pile of aliens in slow motion looking goddamn RENAISSANCE painting? That moment changed me! the DRAMA! The rest of that scene? Valkyrie, Loki, and Hulk fighting together? Thor’s LIGHTING striking those aliens straight outta there like they were fucking ants? ICONIC! The iconic truly JUMPED out of that movie! Taika Waititi took my hand in that movie, told me it was all gonna be ok and then changed my life FOREVER! That was ART! Mr. Waititi thank you for my LIFE

I like how considerate Thor is. I like the fact that Thor… he was thinking about Valkyrie, he was just like, “I’ll go off and not only get a weapon. I’ll go get some clothes for her as well, to inspire her. Give her a sense of place. Help her get her identity back. She’s been running from the truth and running from her past.” He’s just given her an opportunity to embrace it, to acknowledge who she is. She’s a Valkyrie.

Why I love Ragnarok:

Marvel: Taika, since you’re new, let’s go over how a Thor movie should go: Thor is the god of thunder

Taika: Right…

Marvel: He uses a hammer.

Taika: Don’t need it.

Marvel: Umm, he has long, Viking-esque hair.

Taika: Chris looks better with short hair.

Marvel: Sure, but Thor wears a long red cape.

Taika: Single shoulder capes are more my aesthetic.

Marvel: Well you’ll have to keep his friends, the Warriors Three…

Taika: They’re already dead.

Marvel: No, well, ok, but his father, Odin…

Taika: Don’t need him.

Marvel: …is the king of Asgard.

Taika: As-what? Get rid of it.

Marvel: And his adopted brother Loki is always the villain.

Taika: That little shit? He’s just an over dramatic theatre nerd.

Marvel: Ugh, well Thor has…two eyes?

Taika: Who needs two eyes?

Marvel: Why did we-

Taika: You love me.
