Thor: Ragnarok did something that most people thought was impossible: It was a good movie about Thor. Writer/director Taika Waititi's unique comedic vision (as displayed on HBO's Flight of the Conchords and in the 2014 cult classic What We Do in the Shadows) carried over into the superhero genre in ways that nobody quite expected, bringing some much needed levity to a franchise that was way too heavily steeped in self-seriousness for being about a guy who's great at hitting things with a hammer. It struck a great balance between laughs and drama, and audiences and critics across the world loved it, slapping the film with a Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and grossing $850 million for fledgling indie film company Marvel Studios which, let's face it, needed a win after only pulling $1.7 billion with its other two releases that year.

Even with the surreal humor, epic action sequences, and heaping scoop of Goldblum that Ragnarok provided, though, there were still a few plot holes that left some of us feeling more than a little confused. Maybe Korg was right. Maybe the only thing that made sense was that nothing made sense. Regardless, let's take a look at some of the more glaring weirdness in Thor: Ragnarok, a story about space gladiators and interstellar vikings.
