    Thor: Ragnarok

    New trailer out today:



    Directed by Taika Waititi the madman behind What we do in the Shadows and Flight of the Concords.

    In a year that has a new Spiderman, a new Alien movie, a Justice League movie, a guardians of the galaxy sequel and a host of other big movies, I can't believe I'm so excited for a Thor movie...

    This looks amazing and I can't wait.

    I saw this on Friday and I absolutely loved it. Great movie, lots of humor but kept just enough heart to keep you following the story. The Hulk vs Thor fight was better than Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice fight. The set design is fucking fantastic and the music gets special mention for being incredible 80s synth (and of course some Zeppelin as you see in the trailers). I just had a blast and this is definitely top tier Marvel.

    Super fun movie. Great pacing, interesting story and characters and even loved the humor and the retro synth music. Haven't had this much fun with a superhero movie since Deadpool and the first Avengers. A very high 8/10 from me

    Yep great film. It's my favorite Marvel film. Just wish I was able to snag that amazing Mondo poster.

    I was actually a little disappointed with this. What irked me was that this was Thor's fifth appearance in the MCU and they STILL haven't given us a comics-accurate version of him. After two less-than-stellar solo movies, a kinda/sorta Thor in The Avengers and a drastically de-powered Thor in Age of Ultron, I was hoping this would be the flick that gave us a real, accurate Thor. Comic fans know that Thor is a fuckin' bad-ass of the highest order and that the cornball Olde English speak is a big part of his charm.

    Feige and company seem to lack faith that portraying him accurately would translate with audiences. They keep looking for a gimmick to make him more palatable. Interestingly, they thought the same thing with Captain America, that portraying him as an aw, shucks boyscout wouldn't work for audiences. But Joe Johnston kept true to the character and Cap quickly became a fan favorite and now has arguably the best trilogy in the MCU.

    I'm not saying I dislike Ragnarok. I loved Goldblum, Blanchett and Tessa Thompson -- in fact all the supporting cast was entertaining -- plus it has IMO the best MCU Hulk we've seen yet. The visual design was bright, colorful and fun, the '80s-style score was cool, and I thought most of the humor worked. I give it a solid 7/10. So it's not that I didn't find the movie enjoyable, I just would have liked it more if they hadn't made Thor a walking punchline. What can I say? Some people think it's funny when Thor screams like a little girl as Stan Lee approaches him with the buzzsaw hair clippers; I think it makes him look like a bitch. And so it goes...

    I'm a comic fan and I always HATED Thor. Before I saw the first Thor film I dreaded watching it because I was afraid it would be like Thor in the comics and I was surprised they actually made a workable character out of him.

    I think they got him completely right in part 3 as he's a big dumb character with a ridiculous power set. Make a big dumb over the top comedy movie with him...perfect.

    Don't get me wrong, if you love comic Thor then great more power to you. I just don't think that character would work on screen unless the movie only takes place in Asgard or one of the other non-earth realms.

    It's all good. Yeah, I've always been a Thor fan, especially Walt Simonson's run in the mid-80s. That's the definitive Thor, IMO, and that's what I keep waiting to see. But, I guess it's just not mean to be.

    Psh...movie Thor, comic Thor. It's all about OG Thor from the Norse mythology.

    Joking (but also seriousness) aside, I think comedic movie Thor works well for the big screen. Just given how he's a god and he's trying to adjust and figure how to act outside of Asgard, among non-gods is entertaining. I thought the movie was good. Not amazing, but good. Certainly better than the second, and possibly the first (really don't like the Jane Foster and the other human characters he was around in the first two).

    (As a side note, Norse mythology Thor had some comedic stories, as well.)

    Way more into DC comics, characters, stories, etc as well, but I definitely agree that Marvel definitely wins over DC when it comes to their live action movies, and it's not even due to the quantity Marvel has over DC (though, I definitely think Wonder Woman is better than most Marvel movies).

    DC does amazing with their animated movies, though. Their older animated series were amazing as well, but their more recent series have been pretty awful.

    Watched it last night was a huge let down. The comedy was terrible, by the weakest villain she just shows up out of the blue to do evil things she was barely a character just a one not villain. This wouldn't be a problem if the things going on were interesting but they weren't the film never really slowsdown to build a plot or develop anything

    Some of you people are never happy with anything you watch. I thought the movie was pretty good and I actually enjoyed the comedy aspect of it as well.
