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.

Thor: Ragnarok is the third film in the God of Thunder's franchise, the fifth film in Marvel Phase Three, and the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So even though it's something of a stand-alone story, you could probably still use a refresher on everything that's happened in the MCU that leads into the movie -- and the mythological event that spells not just the end of Asgard, but all the nine realms.

It's been seven years and 12 (really, 12?) films since the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced Tom Hiddleston as Loki in the original Thor. As Hiddleston gears up for yet another appearance as the God of Mischief in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, he's a little surprised he's still here.

King Kong started his reign in 1933, but it didn't last long. He was eventually overshadowed by Godzilla and a crowd of B-movie pretenders for decades, to the point where even Peter Jackson's attempt to revive him in 2005 couldn't help. But with Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has created an action-packed spectacle truly worthy of its giant, majestic star.
