[Thor is thrown into Muspelheim in chains]
I know what you're thinking. "Oh, no. Thor's in a cage. How did this happen?" Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of something. It's a long story.

Three Thor movies, three quite different films. On this occasion, after the much lauded success of other films in the franchise like Guardians and Deadpool. (Which I love.) It is easy to see why they would choose to duplicate the comedic style.
This is my favourite of the three Thor films by a clear margin. I was chuckling quite regularly from the very first scene. However I did think are they taking the balance of comedy and drama a bit too far at times. Often you feel yourself hanging on waiting to see if there is a punchline coming even in the more dramatic moments. Even when the bodies are piling up. (The Sokovia Accords have no jurisdiction in the wider universe.)
For the most part the directors approach of encouraging improvisation does appear to work very well. But sometimes it does feel like there is a real lack of the "straight man" to add structure to the chain gun of gags.
On the whole I enjoyed Thor Ragnarok. It falls into the top five of my fav Marvel movies.
