I read the article and the only thing I could think of is "Gorr was right".
// I didn't read the damn thing. Too many words. Sue me

Yes Chris, you are worthy.

It was a pretty big build up.  A Chekhov's gun introduced in, what, Ultron?  It was damn cool to finally see it pay off years later.

You can pretty much fast forward Endgame to that final scene.

One of the most well-executed and long-withheld payoffs ever put to "film," superhero or otherwise, in a movie already filled with constant payoffs.

Take away all the glamour of the effects, humor and worldbuilding of the MCU and the whole series is still an very well-told epic about a selfish man (Tony) learning to be completely selfless and a completely selfless man (Steve) learning to indulge in some well-deserved selfishness.

It'll be interesting to see what they try next, but even if they fall on their face, Iron Man thru Endgame exist as one big self-contained masterpiece.

Why the fark would you want to?

Worthy means of worth... i.e. of value to others.

And that's it, that's what it's all about.  What are you providing to others?  What do you mean to them?

Within your own head, I'm sure you think you are amazing.  But that isn't what counts.

Chris Evans is a man who appreciates his success, but doesn't take it for granted.
Remember that he starred in Not Another Teen Movie.

Well, the rest of the movie is pure set up.
Yeah, there are moments, but you're watching Endgame for the end.
Infinity War is a better, well-rounded "movie"

The first fifteen minutes of the movie are amazing.  Then the rest is kinda meh.


Also, I wish the hammer had given him a norse god-warrior take on his Captain American uniform.

Well, that isn't enough. Depending on how much you want to break down Thor, when he thought he was worthless, at his lowest, his pride beaten to nothing, Molnir didn't work for him. You have to know you have worth in yourself and by others. Molnir is more of a well rounded individual macguffin.

A doormat can't carry Molnir. Not sure how well that fits into depressed Thor, but given that Vision could lift it (who was all of 1 day old), I would say it lends more towards being a well rounded worth than "everyone relys on this person".

I will remember that moment for the rest of my life.

It made me feel like a kid again, comic books and all.

Haven't seen the movie so I checked for a clip online.  It could have been the wrong scene but I wasn't impressed at all.  The extremely fast pace, quick cuts, and the fact that you don't actually see him pick it up really take away from any emotional weight it should have had.
 
2021-01-20 1:50:38 PM  
It's nice when the people behind these iconic characters and moments enjoy them as much as we do, instead of being grumpy assholes about it.  I'm looking at you, Harrison Ford.

Where the hell are you people getting this crap?  Worthiness is according to ODIN's definition, not this namby-pamby 'I like myself' nonsense.  You have to be a warrior willing to defend others more than a vainglorious fool starting stupid fights.

Fark sakes; watch the goddamned movie.

I mean, shiat; why was Thor surprised Mjolnir returned to his hand in the past when he met his mom if he already 'knew' his worth 'in himself and others' and such-all blather?  Thor acted with vanity when he went for Thanos' heart instead of the insta-kill because he wanted Thanos to know he'd been beaten and Thor wanted to see Thanos defeated up close; all to have it fall to crap and Thor feeling like he'd let half the universe die.

Again, he had to learn to put the safety of others before his own vainglory.

Christ, PAY ATTENTION.

If that's the case, it kinda feels like more people than just Cap would be worthy. Bearing the mantel of Thor is supposed to be this really rare and difficult to achieve goal, so I feel like the criteria goes a bit beyond what people have suggested so far. That said, Thor's kind of a tool, yet he apparently has "it", whatever "it" is, so who knows.

They do. Vision picks it up and hands it back to Thor in one of the other movies (Ultron as well I think) like it's nothing.

So I just watched that bit on YouTube.  Can someone explain to me:  Bad guy is shoving Thor's axe-thing into Thor's chest  Then the hammer hits bad buy from behind and pulls a u-turn in the air.  As it whizzes past bad guy (en route to Cap's hand), bad guy whips around, but now bad guy has that long double-bladed weapon in his hand, not Thor's axe-thing.

Continuity error, or something else?  If something else, can someone fill me in?
 
2021-01-20 6:14:47 PM  
Also:  how come bad guy can control Thor's axe-thing?  Does one not have to be worthy to do so, or is bad guy just beyond such things?
 
2021-01-20 6:21:41 PM  
K never mind.  It's a continuity error that others have noted.

Ultron never picks it up, but Vision does. There's some debate about that, which they address at the end of the movie. Vision is a machine, like an elevator. Put the hammer in an elevator, elevator goes up, but the elevator's not worthy. Then again, they were using machines to try to move the hammer in the first Thor movie and that didn't work, so maybe there's something more to Vision after all.

Remember that he starred in Not Another Teen Movie.


Even worse, he was in the first set of big budget Fantistic Four movies. Its sad when the Roger Corman movie made to hold onto the rights is better than the supposed A list movie.
