Thor was clearly the best Thor movie.  And as of right now in my top 3 of Avengers movies.

This was way, way better than the other Thor movies. Solid outing. I wish there had been a little more set up for Infinity War with Thanos, but whatever.

That's a huge opening for a comedy.

I don't consider it a criticism. There were two scenes that slayed me* and I loved the rock guy. The movie had a lot of good banter.

I saw it Wednesday night and loved it. The fact that it was more lighthearted than the last two Thor movies is its real appeal. And Mark Ruffalo apparently did all the talking Hulk parts himself, without voice processing. IIRC they got Lou Ferrigno to do the "Puny god" line in the first Avengers film.

"Another day, another Doug".... that movie was hysterical.  In my top two Marvel movies.

My wife was telling me last night, that Thor's line about "He's a friend, I know him from work", wasn't in the original script.  There was a "make-a-wish" kid on the set when they were filming that scene and during some conversations the kid suggested that line.  It worked so much better than the original line, that it made it into the final cut.

Damn fine movie too.

May see it again this afternoon.
 
2017-11-05 10:33:51 AM  
Thor was extremely entertaining and a lot of fun to watch. I thought it worked very well as an action comedy. The bit near the climax with Banner was the funniest part of the movie, the whole theater was cracking up.

They have a demo in front of my theater. It's a cute gimmick but there's no way I could sit for 2+hours of it.

I was looking for a pic from The Naked Gun of the ass-chastity belt Drebin wore when he went to prison (ass guard, get it?) and saw many things I can't un-see in the search results.

If they didn't insert all that Guardians type humor in Ragnarok it would have been more depressing than BvS. Also they either didn't pay Hopkins enough or he is so old he stopped giving a fark for this movie. He telegraphed that in.

He's still alive....I mean he's still in these movies? He used to be a respected actor. It's like Dame Judi Dench doing those Bond movies. Not that I don't love Bond movies and she was good in them but still.

/then again Silence of the Lambs was a high quality slasher flick.
 
2017-11-05 02:09:25 PM  
Thor was fun, but forgettable. The main takeaway for me was just how goddamn awesome Dr Strange is. Really looking forward to part 2.

I tried D Box once and hated it. I ended up turning it off after 20 minutes and was stuck sitting in an uncomfortable seat that I couldn't recline for the rest of the film.

Check out Hopkins' filmography. It's like a high class Michael Caine. Something about these British chaps, I think Hopkins loves being in shiatty movies and has since Congo. Perhaps he's tried to top Ben Kingsley's record.

He wasn't in Congo. But I do remember seeing him in "Freejack" with Emilio Esteves right after accepting his Oscar.

Some actors just like to act. Especially in their advancing years. Westworld isn't exactly Shakespeare either (nothing I watch is).

All three "actor Asgardians" were inspired choices

/Any bets that Damon tells Batfleck what it's like to be in a good comic book movie?
 
2017-11-05 02:58:53 PM  
I did not recognize Matt Damon, honestly. Maybe the wig was that ridiculous.
Two other things from the movie: Thor always seemed a little underpowered in his previous movies but definitely not in this one.
And Cate Blanchett was freaking smoking hot.

"Oh shiat" and "just a sec while inswing bacck around" both made me giggle.

I REALLY liked the callback to Avengers and the man in Germany / "there are ALWAYS men like you" That was my favorite scene in an Avengers movie, and it was nice to see the point driven home.

The rock guy was the director. I heard an interview he did this week on NPR. He's known for smaller indie films and he said he approached this as a road trip movie about a guy looking for his dad and then trying to get back home to stop a burgler with his jerk brother, his bipolar friend and a drunk girl.

They really needed him to be in the very little. And that scene of him as Loki was excellent. "Oh, shiate!"

POSSIBLE SPOILERS!!


Thor: Ragnarok was fantastic.  The switch to being more comedy oriented fits much better than trying to be a serious outing.  Someone finally realized just how ridiculous Thor/Odin/Asgard/etc. really is and just embraced it.  The visual gags were great (the ball to the head, Banner's landing, the Shake Weight) but the dialogue was much better too.  Even the more subtle lines like Loki-as-Odin's "Oh shait"  Thor's "I'm not even moving.  It's just doing this on its own"  Korg's "There goes another.  It's gone." Hela's "Let me stop you right there."  Loki's "I need to get off this planet right now!" made for a much, much better movie this time out.

But even with the focus being more on comedy T:R. still brought the action though.  It was the most action packed Thor movie yet.  It easily had the best Hulk action so far.  I think this one will be in the top 25% of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Diehard fans of Planet Hulk though will probably be disappointed by how little Planet Hulk story was in there.  Much in the same way diehard fans of Star Lord were probably disappointed in who they revealed to be his father in Guardians 2.

P.S.  Read up on IMDB about the movie and didn't realize just how many cameos there were.  You have Matt Damon as actor Loki, Sam Neill as actor Odin, and Luke Hemsworth as actor Thor.  Plus director Taika Waititi voiced the rock-man Korg.

This, that, and the other. Ragnarok rocked and does everything you want a movie to do.

I think people aren't considering that Hopkins played Loki playing Odin (rather comedically) in the scene when Thor returned to Asgard. They're thinking only of the actual Odin scenes where he was sort of disconnected and distant, but that was the point. Odin was slipping away from reality. He was hanging on long enough to say goodbye to his sons and warn them of the impending return of Hela.

it makes me chuckle that there are two unintentional references to Kevin Smith movies.

apparently hemsworth knows taika and suggested him to marvel, and taika knew cate and karl, and just made a buddy comedy with a bunch of his friends. and it shows.

Anyone else found it weird when Hela crushes Thor's hammer in Norway but in the trailer it was in an alley way?   The scenes looked green screened.  I wonder if it happened in different locations depending where you saw it.

They did a few misleads in the trailer. They show Thor with both eyes in the glowing-eye end scene in the trailer, but in the movie the same scene has him with the obvious missing peeper.
 
2017-11-05 04:29:45 PM  
Saw it.  Loved it.  Will see it again around Thanksgiving.  A few things:

Glad the Hulk talked - it was one of the things that bothered me about Age of Ultron.  Also it was kinda cool that he bonded with the Valkyrie and that he was genuinely hurt when Thor told him that none of the Avengers liked him.  However, I hope that Bruce Banner isn't "lost" forever as he fears.  Hopefully, in future movies, he and the Hulk can somehow reconcile to share instead of constantly trying to "kill" each other as I think Bruce Banner is just as good a character as the Hulk.

It's a safe bet that Thanos gets the Tesseract from Loki who no doubt took it from that subterranean chamber.

So now there's three characters who only have one eye in MCU - Nick Fury, Odin, and Thor.

Unless I missed something, either Hela killed off millions of people during her rein as queen or Asgard had a pretty low population to begin with because there couldn't have been more than what - a hundred thousand on that ship when it left Asgard?

Wonder how Thor will get another Mjolnir.
 
2017-11-05 04:34:17 PM  
Yeah, I think Asgard was low in population.

A new Mjolnir?  Sounds like a job for Odin.. oh wait..

If only there was some reality-altering macguffin in an upcoming film that could fix things.

They changed it post-production:

"Well, here's the thing. Alleyways aren't cool. Fields are cool. Alright? Ask anyone. We originally shot some of that stuff [sic] in New York. What we wanted to do was, you know, have them go down to Earth and they see Doctor Strange and stuff. But it just felt too convenient that he was suddenly just down a road in an alley. And also everything up until then had been so fast-paced and all over the place. We wanted to go someplace peaceful. "

2017-11-05 04:40:09 PM  
My mini-review: best Thor movie so far. Very funny and entertaining, will watch again.

HOWEVER, 2 things:
1. I think they went a little too far with the humor, as it undercut some of the more dramatic moments. I think they could've toned it down a smidge.
2. I felt there was too much (or too much obvious) green screen. At points I was having Episode 1 flashbacks.

Even with those criticisms, it was still enjoyable as all hell.
