There's no rule that says film directors have to be as entertaining as their films but Taika Waititi is just that. His films, from "What We Do In The Shadows" to "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" are overflowing with charm and humor and the same can be said for the Kiwi director.
All of which is to say, this is a fun episode of "Happy Sad Confused" with Waititi visiting Josh to talk about his thrilling new film, "Thor: Raganrok". Josh and Taika talk about the the influences on the film (and Taika himself), including "Flash Gordon" and "Big Trouble in Little China", why the director may take on "Akira" and what amazing flashback scene almost ended up in the Thor sequel.
