If you’ve been following all the marketing for Thor: Ragnarok in the last few weeks, you may have come across the now-famous “Get Help” scene. The scene in question is basically split into three small parts.
The first is a heart-to-heart between Loki and Thor, two brothers who have never been able to emotionally connect. Despite his best efforts, Thor has been unable to save Loki, and is essentially giving up here. the second part of the scene brings back the brotherly banter when Thor mysteriously says “let’s do ‘get help.’” The punchline comes when we see them actually act out the plan on the nearby guards.
The scene works incredibly well even out of context of the entire movie, but luckily for us, director Taika Waititi is there to break it down for us.
Waititi may be one to crack jokes in every open moment, but in between the jokes and obvious point-outs, there is some actual great insight into how the scene was contructed, what it means on a subtextual level, and his overall approach for the flick. It’s an effective and entertaining breakdown that only someone Waititi could have done, so we highly recommend checking it out.
