Introducing The Next Spielberg: Taika Waititi!

I’m a huge fan of Taika Waititi’s creative work. His humour and wit is refreshing, and I’m not surprised with him being compared to Steven Spielberg.

If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will soon. Starting small, he’s gained recognition and is now joining the ranks with the greats as he’s directing Thor: Ragnarok. I’m excited to see the elements he’ll be introducing.

His films are refreshing, raw, genuine and hilarious. He also hasn’t lost his incredible childlike imagination. Check out this video to see what sets Waititi apart and why his movies will hopefully soon be considered the most popular movies.
