Gods And Monsters!

Honestly, I wanted to call this article Thor, Motherfuckers!!!  This goddamn movie makes me want to smack a troll in the chops with a war hammer.  I want to tear a hole in the sky with my fanboy hard-on.  I’m practically sitting here in a puddle of my own drool after watching Thor:  Ragnarok.  I shit you not, I could fucking cry I am so delighted with this film.
