Rebel Reel Reviews: “Thor: Ragnarok” fun, fast-paced but…

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

Thor: Ragnarok
is the best Marvel movie of all time — or is it?

The new film flew into theatres November 3, smashing up the box office. Is it as good as we've been told?

Why the overt message of anti-colonialism?

And what kinds of Christian values did Disney put on the big screen?

- That happens to a lot of movies. All high paced, no downtime.

It’s a comic book movie. You don’t watch it for intellectual depth.

Frank it is not stupid to point it out , the left and your peers do it all the time about many issues, so spare us the hypocrisy.

Drew Wakariuk,

They can look for a Christian, but they are stupid to complain if there isn’t one since these are not Christian films.

If you need a Christian message with your movies, it would seem to make sense to watch Christian films made by Christian production companies and filmmakers.

Frank Hohimer, have a nice day, you precious little cupcake.

Frank Hohimer Hollywood has an agenda and points their filthy fingers, what part of that eludes you? You are missing the point, others can demand and point fingers and see the world through their SJW filter but a Christian cannot look for some Christian message in a film?

Frank Hohimer this is a review , the SJW scum make demands , so tell t hem tough shit.

Maurice Potvin,

It’s a ridiculous idea from the get go, since 99% of movies are not going to cater to that “filter”.

So then it becomes a case of having an agenda and pointing fingers at Hollywood for not catering to that “filter”, even though the are not required to – nor do they need to.

Plenty of Christian content if that’s what you enjoy. Don’t ruin it for everyone else that doesn’t t need a churchy message with their movies.

Frank Hohimer, I suggest Ben Davies’ insight is much too deep for you to comprehend. I further suggest you should avoid any present or future Rebel presentation that includes an interview with Dr. Jordan Peterson, Tarek Fatah, Claudia Rosset, or any number of people who occasionally make an appearance on The Rebel.
Don’t hurt yourself, Frank. Remember the wise advice of Inspector Harry Callahan. “A man’s got to know his limitations.”

Frank Hohimer, this is Ben Davies’ review, not yours. He’s a Christian, an actor and a film critic. He reviews movies through those filters… and that’s his job here. All parties (employer and employee) agreed to terms before he signed on. He knows that, his employer knows that, I know that and you know that. If you don’t like it, don’t watch.

Drew Wakariuk,

All they are obligated to do is tell a story. If that story offends your religious or political views – tough shit.

Stick with watching family friendly Christian crap or those censored versions of Hollywood movies, where Christians/Mormons edit out what they deem to be offensive.

Funny how these same progressives remain silent when an Imam preaches hate or condemns a movie, but once someone looks for any Christian values they have a friggin cow.
commented 2017-11-11 18:31:28 -0500
Love how progressives can never take even a slighter version of their own criticisms. Shows their level of maturity.
commented 2017-11-11 18:30:21 -0500
Frank Hohimer right back at you and the SJW whiners, movies are not obligated to only shit on Christians and make minorities look like infallible humans. He is not demanding anything be taken down. And you defended the comics when they went SJW to obligate whining progressives so spare us your hypocrisy.
commented 2017-11-11 14:28:16 -0500
If you want Christian values – watch a Kirk Cameron movie or the many Christian films that die at the box office as soon as they hit the marketplace. Perhaps you have been in some of them.

Disney or any studio for that matter isn’t obligated to appease you as a Christian. The notion that look for Christian values within your movie reviews is completely ridiculous. There are Christian movies for that and Christian production companies.

Good review. I particularly appreciate the fact that the reviewer mentioned that there was so much action, so much humour and so many elaborate special effects in the film, that the viewer was lambasted with far too much information to properly process. All this has its entertainment value of course, and thus it will adequately mesmerize the puerile and the superficial. Furthermore, it will make a lot of money at the box office and thus guarantee a follow up movie in the franchise. This is all good as far as it goes; but,for those of us who also enjoy a little character development, interaction and intelligent dialog, we are guaranteed to go away hungry and disappointed. The equivalent of chowing down on an entire box of Coco Puffs seeking nutritional sustenance. There is nothing to be had.
