Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

It’s been a month since I saw Thor: Ragnarok – my first Thor movie that I experienced on the big screen. I knew it was going to be better than the first two introductions to Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel character, but I didn’t expect to walk out with so much positive energy. Thor: Ragnarok is upbeat, funny and colourful. So much so, that you are distracted by its flashiness and you end up seeing past its flaws.

Includes minor spoilers from the trailer.

Starting my monthly favorites post with the sentence “I can’t believe this month is over” seems such a cliché but it is the only way I can express my feelings today. This was THE month for me, I turned 25 and I have kept a great schedule with posting, gone to the movies, worked a lot and been overall busy. The pressure of school is still upon me, now higher than ever but I don’t want to think about it at the moment, this is the post to revisit the things I loved this month!
