Remember Thor: Ragnarok? Almost feels like lifetimes ago now, but it’s been just a few years since the wild and hilarious addition to the MCU came to us courtesy of director Taika Waititi. It was a smash hit, making back about five times its budget and earning over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Disney has always been smart with the Marvel franchise, and that includes course corrections when needed. The Thor installments up to that point had been just a little too heavy and somber – the colorama Goldblum-blessed feast of Ragnarok turned that around quick, and the internet noticed.
Of course, you can’t talk fandom without talking Tumblr. Here are just a few of the best Tumblr fan takes on the film.

1. From the page
Finally, some screenplay excerpts for your enjoyment.
