Thor: Ragnarok - 7/10
The Thor movies were always the films in the MCU that always were the problem child, an okish first film and a ehhh second entry. However when it was announced that Taika Wititi was going to be behind this entry into the series, I was immediately hyped for the movie and boy did he do it justice.
The film has lots of great humour and action scenes, you can obviously tell that the actors had fun being in the film and the cast is all around great. There are some great easter eggs (including fixing a continuity error involving a certain gauntlet), if you've seen any other of Taika's films you know that it's definitely in his style and that's great.
If I had to give any negatives, it would be not be due to the film itself, but due to others in the cinema with me, they were talking throughout the entire thing and getting up every 10 minutes, making me distracted and loosing focus on the movie, so I need to give it another watch. Also the villain wasn't in it as much as I hoped.
Jigsaw - 6.6/10
I'll just keep this one short but I've not seen many of the Saw movies (4 including this), I know that they are mostly famous for its gore elements. This film doesn't have much of that in it, instead it's a cool murder mystery film, with tense elements, creative traps and interesting backgrounds for the characters in it. I know it kinda messes up the film timeline and some acting is terrible, but it's entertaining and I'm glad I watched it. My second favourite Saw film after the first.
Ra.One - ??/??
So I went to the Bollywood Park the other day and I wondered to myself what one of the attractions original movie was like, considering I watched Krrish and found it hilarious, I sat down with some friends and watched the masterpiece which is Ra.One. It's difficult to explain, a Indian video game company based in London (where everyone speaks Indian), makes a game where the villain comes to life and then the movie producers got their cat and put it on the keyboard and it wrote the rest of the script by standing on random keys. It's a true spaghetti of a movie, nothing makes sense and it's dam hilarious. I've never laughed so much at something trying to be serious, it's a true masterpiece of so bad its good, but makes you confused at the end. Watch this movie, you'll never regret it.
