Thor: Ragnarok
The Marvel Universe's funniest movie to date
Film Review  November 3, 2017, by Kimberley Jones
"...The first two Thor movies felt like placeholders, bridging the months to get to one of the more marquee comic book heroes. The punch line with Thor: Ragnarok? While the rest of the Avengers were off having a very ugly divorce in Captain America: Civil War, turns out Thor (Hemsworth) and the Incredible Hulk (Ruffalo) were capering across the galaxy for a rousing action-comedy that stays true to the Marvel master plan while also, yeah, kinda taking the piss out of it...."

Film Review  July 6, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...But this is also Marvel’s first co-headlined feature (hey, it’s Thor: Ragnarok, not Thor and Loki), and so Lilly gets more of a chance to shine. In the original, she was Lang’s foil, kept in check by her father because he didn’t want to lose her to his crazy tech..."

Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Kiwi comedy offers a wealth of belly laughs
Film Review  July 15, 2016, by Josh Kupecki
"...Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a thoughtful and hilarious film with nuanced performances from the two leads. Waititi is tapped to direct the new Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel next year, and let’s hope his singular voice doesn’t get drowned in the abyss of blockbuster middle management...."

Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme and big bad Thanos get a local scribe
Arts Story  November 16, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...There's a moment in Thor: Ragnarok that makes Donny Cates' head reel: It's when Doctor Strange and Loki cross paths. He says, "Those two characters talking to each other has been my life for the last six months."..."

SXSW Film Review: Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Family-friendly comedy is quirky fun
DAILY Screens  March 12, 2016, by Michael Agresta
"...Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a funny film to encounter at a festival – a broad, crowd-pleasing PG comedy from the director of an upcoming superhero sequel (Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok), starring the guy from the original Jurassic Park (Sam Neill)...."

Avengers: Infinity War
Earth's mightiest heroes face their greatest, most nuanced threat
Film Review  April 27, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...The Avengers had disassembled, with Iron Man (Downey Jr.) left with the twisted fragments as Captain America (Evans) and the Black Widow (Johannson) took to a secret, nomadic life. Yet the fragmenting goes deeper: Vision (Bettany) and Wanda Maximoff (Olsen) are off the grid, and Thor (Hemsworth) had taken off to Asgard, which is now rubble and a distant memory in the wake of Ragnarok..."
