New on Blu-ray and DVD March 6, 2018 "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Lady Bird"

Thor: Ragnarok
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Hiddleston
Rated PG-13 

Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. 

Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is about as good as a superhero movie can be.

It has everything you want in a film and more. More action, more humor and more insight. The film is beautifully balanced and offers tremendous action, with a slight wink at the audience.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is a true blockbuster.

It gets an A and is rated PG-13.

Lady Bird
Starring: Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf
Rated R  

In this coming of age story, a young woman longs for adventure, sophistication, and opportunity, but finds none of that in her Sacramento Catholic high school.

"Lady Bird" follows the title character's senior year in high school, including her first romance, her participation in the school play, and most importantly, her relationship with her mother.

The film, directed and written by Greta Gerwig, is a powerful, well-acted character study that is both heartwarming and shattering as the lead characters engage in the love / hate relationship most parents and children feel.

The film is beautifully acted and well worth seeing. It gets an A and is rated R.
