OVERALL: Yes, yes, 1,000 times YES!!!!!!! I wanna see it again and again!
POINTS: This movie had action, adventure, acting, and HUMOR! If you didn’t laugh during this movie, well there is something wrong with you.
PITFALLS: Hmm… Well I need it to be out on DVD like yesterday.
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): Oh Valkyrie played by Tessa Thompson, how I adore you! What a fun butt-kicking character. The director didn’t want her to be just a pretty girl. She had to have her own story and life. And she did. LOVED her!
Then there is Hela. OMG. Who’d a thunk Cate Blanchett could play such an awesome Goth chick? Her Hela was spot on – sinister, threatening, and like the rest of this movie, funny. She was a fine villain.
PLUS OMG Rachel House is Topaz. She was so funny!!!!!!!! Loved that she wasn’t just an object but was a threatening character in her own right.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): With all the cool women in this movie I was surprised to see a few walking around as decoration. Then again they were “working” for the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. I mean, the Grandmaster’s right hand was Topaz who was so funny and buttkicking.
- Immigrant Song. Not one, but two fight scenes to this fabulous song.
- Valkyrie strutting. To the second Immigrant song in the movie, our heroine STRUTS onto the screen. I could watch that for ages!
- The “I Know You” moments between Valkyrie and Bruce. Very fun and so well acted.
- Fenris the Wolf. Oh that big ole puppy dog is the bringer of doom but I just wanted to pet him so bad! If I had been on Asgard, I would have wanted to pet him.
BECHDEL TEST (Website): 2 of 3. A bit disappointed but then again, I could be wrong.
RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 2 of 3. A bit disappointed but then again, I could be wrong.
