Thor has been one of my favorite Marvel characters on screen. He’s brash and funny, and he’s from a whole other realm than the mortals of Earth. His films, however, have never really lived up to the potential of Thor’s thunderous charm, and the charms of star Chris Hemsworth, at least until Taika Waititi took the figurative helm in Thor: Ragnarok.
Taika Waititi seems to know talent when he sees it, which is probably why the director casts himself in all of his own films. The tongue-in-cheek director has a rather dry sense of humour, and that makes him the perfect comic relief on-screen, whether you’re talking about What We Do In The Shadows, or his new film, Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok where he plays the oddly lovable rock monster, Korg.
I look forward to October all year long. I love September, but I know that around the middle of October things slow down just a bit, the weather gets cooler and nicer, and I love a good hot apple cider right about now. This year has felt like summer has crept into fall more than I like, but the weather has been wonderful. I also finally was able to recover from a cold that’s stuck with me for more than two weeks.

My expectations for Marvel’s Ant-Man were pretty low going in. In my mind, if there was a Marvel film that was going to fail, it was going to be Ant-Man. The character just didn’t strike me as all that interesting, and the departure of previous writer and director Edgar Wright had me wondering what kind of mess might be waiting for filmgoers.
