Thor: Ragnarok Non-Spoiler Review!

Thor: Ragnarok Non-Spoiler Review!

Written by Jason Brigger

Director: Taika Waititi
Writers: Eric Pearson and Craig Kyle
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett

Standalone Thor films have never really received the love that most other Avengers’ solo films receive and with good reason as the films, up to now, have been either been boring (original Thor) or pretty to watch but ultimately forgettable (Thor: The Dark World). Thor: Ragnarok opens in North America November 3, 2017 and hopes to change that by taking a new approach by using comedy to liven up the forgettable film series.

This time, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must not only tangle with his mischievous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), but also Hela, the God of Death (Cate Blanchett) as she tries to continue what Odin (Anthony Hopkins) stopped her from doing centuries ago, rule the universe. Along the way, Thor must also escape a planet run by the creepy but fun dictator Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and recruit a team of heroes looking for purpose and revenge. If this sounds a little like Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s because it is. More

                          Out of Control

                          After a few weeks off, Brian and Cody catch up with all the out of control fandoms. We start off on 10/29 with the madness of the SNES Classic release. After that it was out to Tampa for MegaCon and beer. Brian enjoyed and reviewed his experience for that weekend including the can’t miss Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.

                          Fandom Hell

                          One of the themes we noticed at Megacon Tampa and in general was the amount of Funko Pop and Rick & Morty things everywhere. McDonald’s released the fabled Szechuan Sauce and the Rabid Rick & Morty fans went crazy. They are not a smart fan base.

                           

                          Video Games

                          We talk about Cuphead and how much the style and  hardness make it a great game. Brian Talks about how much he joy he is going through playing the SNES classic especially Super Mario Land.

                              365Flicks #91 Indie Talk.. Micropubs – The New Local W/ Dir Danny Eycott **IndieGoGo**

                              Director Danny Eycott comes on Indie Talk to speak to us about his IndieGoGo campaign to fund his first full feature length Documentary about the birth and rise of the now popular Micropub.

                              First up we catch up on how we met Danny on the set of Tom Paton’s movie Black Site and his role on the flick..

                              Then we get into the short movie Danny produced and has won a few awards at different festivals. Textual Relationship, We completely recommend this short its full as hell and 100% socially relevant.

                              Then its onto the campaign where we find out what the guys are making and some pretty interesting stories about Micropubs themselves. Then Danny and Chris try to talk Kev into opening a Micropub… Sounds like a plan to us.

                              If you fancy giving a few pennies to the campaign and helping the guys out then click the link and but them a digital pint!!!

                                Well guys we finally made the trip over America for the Cincinnati Comic Expo which was utterly utterly amazing and we spend 40 minutes of this episode re-capping our travels and experience. We Met Miriam Margolyes and Kel Mitchell while taking in some awesome Q&A panels. We end the Round-Up with our Top5 Expo moments.

                                Thank to the amazing folks at Cinci Comic Expo for having us over to the expo, it was one hell of an experience.

                                Next up we have Daniel Farrand on the show to talk about his new Kickstarter for the 4th Monkey Anthology a graphic novel about social awareness, check out the Kickstarter.

                                To the News we plod. Fast 9 is delayed, Justice League Trailer is amazing and V for Vendetta is coming to Channel 4.

                                Just the pilot for this week is Channel 4 hard hitting drama The State a show about Brit Lads and Lasses leaving for syria to join ISIS.

                                What have we been watching this week, Kev is on a bit of a horror kick for 31 days of horror. We both love the hell out of War For the Planet of the Apes and Kev was disgusted with the Emoji movie.

                                We round out the show with a Top5 dedicated to “The Cincinnati Llama Botherer” Scab Jeff and its Top5 Brit Flicks.

                                  This time around Chris and Kev are Joined by two thirds of the History Of Bad Ideas Podcast and it goes completely off the rails. No need for show notes this time because its all over the place.

                                  Due to Jeff only having a little time we start the cast with some banter about the upcoming Expo and move swiftly into our Top5 which this week we all did something different… Chris did Top5 bad US tv shows based off good UK shows, Jeff did Top5 bad US shows the Brits remade, Jason did Top5 UK wrestlers…

                                  What we been watching consists of Orville the Tv Show. Movies like Baby Driver and Chris finally watched Power Rangers.

                                  We squeeze in some Listener Questions from both sets of fans.

                                  Ending the show with our regular News in which Chris lets us know exactly how he feels about peoples reaction to JJ taking over on the last Star Wars.

                                  We have been wanting to get Jason and Jeff on the show for some time and now seemed the right time, before we fly across the world to meet the guys at cincinnati comic expo..
