Thor: Ragnarok

Recommended Posts

The third and (presumably) final installment to the Thor franchise of the MCU.

 

 

Doesn't quite feel like Thor to me. Did they show too much?

Given that the Thor films so far have been really dull, 'not feeling like a Thor film' can only be a positive.

Seriously man, why do you watch all these trailers? Do you like going to the movie knowing what's gonna happen?

I'm just excited about the films and want to see some footage. Unfortunately since Marvel and DC release three trailers for each film it's tough to avoid spoilers. Just releasing one or two trailers might help with that a little in my opinion.

I get your excitement but trailers are borderline pornographic in the amount of plot and gags showed and that's why I make an active effort to avoid them altogether (going as far as looking away when I'm at the theater). You should consider doing the same. You'll enjoy the movie a lot more.

 

Can you imagine what must have been like going to Civil War not knowing that Spider-Man was in the movie? Just some food for thought.

Every now and then they show all this stuff in the trailer and it still ends up being a good movie. If it has an even further twist still hidden throughout all the trailers, there's a high chance I just saw something top tier.

I'm fine with one trailer. Some are actually little masterpieces of contained storytelling. What I really dislike is when you have like Trailer #3-4, something that's becoming a lot more common.

I feel like they used to have people that understood film make trailers, now it's ad men who are just awful that make them all. See horror film trailers such as VVitch and more recently It comes at Night. Those trailers had 0 understanding of those movies and just oozed ad men trying to capture the magic of the Conjuring/Paranormal Activity/etc.

Sorry to hijack the topic but since we're talking about trailers, I'll leave a link to my favorite one:

So, this movie looks great, but I have to imagine it will feel rushed. I mean, there is no way they can fit all the stuff shown in the trailers in a normal marvel movie runtime.

saw it, could write an essay on how shit it was. 

 

just very very extreme side of the comedy/quirky side of marvel which doesn't fit in with thor or the other films.

I heard this was an enjoyable movie but not the best Marvel movie

I thought it was shit.

 

Ruined villains and characters, left, right and centre.

Plot was like two completely different films mashed into one and not in a good way. 

And the soundtrack just felt so OFF for a super hero film. 

 

Marvel seem to be really fucking up their third films of any super hero except Captain America. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think Wonder woman for me has changed the game. Its shown films can be serious AND charming. This one failed at both and I think for a character like Thor, its a shame. Spiderman Homecoming was RIGHT on the money tho.

I thought Wonder Woman was more or less just a bit above average and Spider-Man was a bit formulaic. This on the other hand was just a straight up good comedy film. Like I can understand being disappointed that that was the direction that they went in, but given that Taika Waititi was the director of the film, nobody should really have been surprised at all. (This is basically one of his movies, but it just happens to be a Thor sequel - it's almost reminiscent of the way Nolan made 3 Christopher Nolan movies that just happened to be about Batman.) It's nothing great but it's definitely better than every Superhero film this year other than Guardians 2. It's also way better than Thor 1 and 2 which are easily the most forgettable Marvel films.

Wonder woman was bang average - sure it's good compared to BvS or Suicide Squad - but if that's the bar you're setting then anything is great. Spiderman was a MUCH better film.

 

In regards to Thor... I thought it was plenty funny and light hearted, but as a film it's like they just tried to hard to go down the humour route and didn't bother with an actual storyline. I enjoyed it a lot but it wasn't great storytelling.

 

And wow, who would've thought that a Thor film had AN UNDER-DEVELOPED VILLAN?! i mean this shouldn't be a surprise anymore

I liked Wonderman a lot. Spiderman was better but I find this day in age, its a bit easier to make the super hero film that doesnt take itself too seriously. Wonder Woman excelled in being a lot more serious and captivating. I felt Spiderman was really really solid throughout but Wonderman fell off on the last 1/5 of the film. I don't know what the fuck is up with DC's obsession with big shitty looking fight scenes which are dragged out. I hope maybe DC/Marvel watch some anime and see how epic they make theirs and try to emulate it with their 4884489849849x budgets. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thor I thought was just down right shit. I felt the storytelling for how good the story is on paper was... well awful. Yup, an under-developed villain in Marvel films is fine.. but this is a villain with an actual back story which had the potential to be very very interesting. Thor's best friends died like cannon fodder, Thor lost his fucking eye and his fucking hammer, Bruce Banner reverted back to the Hulk with the sticking point he might never be able to go back.... 

 

And all of that was cast aside as shitty little goofy jokes and thats where the film fails. It had the potential to have some RIDICULOUSLY epic moments such as the reveal of his sister, the fact thor goes head to head with his sister, thor losing his eye, losing his hammer, utilising the power of thunder, loki saving them, thor's best friends dying (albiet under developed), Bruce's struggle with the Hulk and eventually letting it take control to save the day at the expense of him maybe never coming back, Banner's whole "wtf i've been the hulk for this long, I've lost 2 years of my life".... 

 

Just so much potential wasted for the quick gag and quirky angle instead. I would have rather they did this with Thor 2 where the plot really was quite hopeless but why waste a very good storyline on this shit. 

 

 

Its only when I watched an IGN explanation of the film that it hit me that Banner made one of the biggest sacrifices by reverting back to the Hulk whilst the movie's pacing and shitty emphasis on jokes just makes it a real side note. 

 

 

I've got a thing for good villains and hate it when films fuck them up. For example X-Men apocalpyse.. like WHAT THE FUCK DID THEY DO TO APOCALPYSE!! I used to watch the fucking cartoon hoping he'd rock up and they turned him into a joke.
