…hammer away

At this point it should come as no surprise that the Marvel Universe has pulled together another great story, yet “Thor: Ragnarok” still seems to be blowing everyone’s minds. Not that I blame them. It is incredibly well told and continues to do a great job of interweaving the ever-growing list of franchises.

Of course, it’s been a good long while since we had a standalone “Thor” movie, which may be hard to believe, mostly because we had “The Avengers,” to get us through, not to mention the constant parade of the (excellent…mostly) Marvel movies in the meantime (eight total…but who’s counting?).

On the other, there’s Wolverine who acts on pure instinct and seems unaware of the body count that’s piling up around him.
