Is Thor: Ragnarok the Funniest Movie of the Year?

Yes. Yes it is. In my humble opinion.

While I avoided reading reviews before watching the new Thor movie on Sunday, some quips slipped through my filter. They mentioned the humor in the movie, but they had me worried that the movie was going to be silly.

I shouldn’t have been concerned. Thor: Ragnarok was a delight to watch from start to finish. I laughed dozens of times, and not just chuckles–there were some jokes that were so funny that I missed the jokes that followed.

I think it might be the most fun I’ve had watching a superhero movie since Iron Man. That’s saying a lot, because even just this year alone I’ve really enjoyed Spider-Man and Wonder Woman, and the Marvel movies have been consistently entertaining.

I remember walking out of Iron Man with a big grin on my face. I felt that grin returning during the climactic finale of Thor: Ragnarok, just because it was so well done. That’s right, Thor isn’t just funny–it’s a nearly perfect composition of popcorn entertainment.

As you can tell, I loved the movie, and I highly recommend it. Have you seen it? Do you think it’s the funniest movie of the year?
