Few Marvel films have reimagined a character as radically as Thor: Ragnarok. Director Taika Waititi took the things fans already loved about the character, filtered them through a new visual palette and added more jokes than almost any other Marvel movie. The result is probably one of the most rewatchable films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, Thor: Ragnarok has technically introduced the first canonically queer character to appear in the MCU, but because the only explicit nod to Valkyrie's sexuality was ultimately cut from the film, her queerness remains almost entirely subtextual. It's a bummer, but we can take solace in the fact that with Hela, Marvel has, accidentally, brought queer representation to its Cinematic Universe - in a very particular way.

Thor: Ragnarok is the funniest Marvel movie to date. In fact, it may be the funniest superhero movie ever. From the first scene until the very last, it's a non-stop cavalcade of jokes wrapped around an epic, sweeping space adventure. The whole thing will make you absolutely giddy.
