Watch some of the latest and greatest new films, out on Blu-ray right now. February has a lot of new Blu-ray arrivals, and that includes Oscar and award-worthy films, from Disney’s Frozen 2, and Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, to Best Picture winner Parasite, Queen & Slim, and more.
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.
