What I learnt from Thor: Ragnarok

We hit the cinema for a family movie night - the first since Guardian of the Galaxy when all 5 of us could sit down to a film together. I was a little worried about the youngest - it is rated M and a little scary. However, in the morning she drew a picture and showed me 'what I learnt from Thor'. We then promptly lost it so I have to show you a picture of Chris Hemsworth instead.

Spoiler ahead - don't read if dying to see the movie. Not a big spoiler tho, so don't worry too much.


There is a scene where Thor is about to give up because the problem is too big and he doesn't have his hammer. Odin replies "You're not the God of Hammers".
My daughter announced that she learnt that her superpower is in her all along.

And that is a very good lesson to learn.


(I also liked his throwaway line that he was 'going to tackle the problem head on...because that's what heroes do' instead of hiding from them.)

PS My daughter also said that the biggest hero in the movie was the old man who cut Thor's hair. And every comic lover would agree.

  1. Wasn't it fun? Hubby and I take turns to choose movies (we're so democratic!) and this was his choice. I really loved it and not just because of delicious Chris! It had me laughing out loud and I love that your daughter learned such an important lesson. It reminds me of my favourite Nike quote, "Everything you need is inside."

  3. While its not my kind of movie, any movie that resonates in such a way with kids, has got to be a good thing!!

  4. I love that lesson - very much like that from The Wizard of Oz - we had the power (to get home / the courage, brain and so forth) all along...

    I did a 'lessons learned' post today too.

    I've never seen any of the superhero movies but the shorts for this look hilarious.
