What was all the hype about?
OK, the first car scene is awesome, credit for doing as little CGI as possible, etc. but WOW does this film fall flat on its face towards the end.
It's a flimsy plot held by a gimmick (music) that doesn't make much sense, and the characters do stupid shit for the sake of stupid shit.
What a letdown.
Thor Ragnarok in IMAX, Thoroughly enjoyed it, first Thor film have actually seen in the cinema, definitely as reviews have said more of a comedy but works really well, great cast and some phenomenal visual moments. Looking forward to seeing it again
Thor was easily the most enjoyable and fun experience I?ve had in a theater in a loooooong time. I thought everything was perfect, although maybe just one scene or two made me wince for a brief second. Loved all the characters. Great action sequences not just relying on massive destruction of buildings....funnier than most comedies I?ve seen. It was just immensely entertaining all around.
I feel like that must be my type of hero flick (similar to dead pool and guardians and ant man).
Saw Thor yesterday, too. Very fun, yes. I Agree with the above statements more or less. Lots of humor, though you can see it coming sometimes.
Though, seems like Thor went a bit too fast from serious to silly. But it's okay, Hemsworth is great.
8/10 I'd say
Also, not a bir fan of Blanchet usually, but she looked great in this. Acting not questioned, of course.
I've always been a bit of a fan of the original, at least the alternative cuts with the more somber ending, so I was really worried this new film was just going to be another Hollywood cash grab, but I was pleasantly surprised. They didn't even try to make a typical summer popcorn action flick out of it. The pacing was nice and slow, with lots of beautiful shots and very little music. The music the film does use was always pretty dramatic.
I also liked that Harrison Ford's part in the film really wasn't that big. His character was obviously important to the plot, but the movie wasn't about him.
Maybe after I see it a couple more times, I may have a better idea about how I rate it, but right now it feels pretty damn perfect. I don't recall any aspects of the film that I wish hadn't been there.
