Norse,

Are we now making Nintendo references?

No, my reference was something much more horrible

Drejk,

Having Hercules and Thor do stuff would be better than what I read about.

I don't think so. I don't think I've ever ready any of the Avengers comics with Hercules that I wasn't kind of annoyed by him (though I never read the Champions comic - maybe he's not as annoying there). I'd just as soon keep him well away.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. And I'm perfectly fine with how much was played for humor even if it wasn't classic Marvel Thor who was nearly always extremely humorless. It's really hard to do the cosmic, Hulk-infused stuff without some humor.

But now I'm wondering if I can get my wife to cosplay Hela...

The parts I remember about Hercules, he always seemed gawdawfully Olympian in his treatment of women and those 'beneath him'.

Really glad the MCU didn't use him.

That's partly because he's rarely been the hero of his own series. He was originally used as a foil for Thor - generally to show off how much better Thor (being the hero of the book) was. Similarly with his early Avenger's role. He's usually been portrayed as egotistical and patronizingly misogynistic, but generally those aren't shown as good things, but as character flaws.

I kind of like him as a character because of that.

Probably harder to pull off well as a guest spot in a movie though.


I think you all need to read Incredible Hercules. It's a great series.

Yeah, the humor added a lot to the movie. I really liked Ragnarok quite a bit. The sound track was also really good. Ragnarok is just a well made movie.

Definitely my favorite of the Thor movies. Reminded me of a brightly colored Ice Pirates.

Ya'll are heathens but at least you have taste. :p


So just got back from seeing it. I hadn't planned to see it in the theaters but a friend of ours who we always watch movies with was rather eager to see it.

I wish I could say I was disappointed but that would mean it had failed to live up to my expectations, and I didn't expect it to be a good movie. It was better than the last two and could have been a pretty decent flick had it not had that incessant gawdawful joking. If the movie had kept the "YES!/He's a friend from work" scene and left out all the rest of the humor it would have been good. The general themes of character growth, change and loss would have made a great movie, yet any poignancy or seriousness was instantly deflated by bad jokes which failed to make me smile even once (and the one joke that would have worked was in the first trailer and so not terribly funny anymore).

It was definitely better than the last two Thor movies (not a difficult feat) but tried too hard to be GotG (movies which I did not like) and not its own thing.


Bjorn,

I liked GotG...but I remain unconvinced they needed that much humor to make Thor a better movie.

Maybe next time they'll have him fight Galactus.


Poor blanket is drowning.


Which blanket?

Ah. That wouldn't be me then cause I'm not against the movie. Just tweaking it. :p ;)

Saw it with my brother and SIL at the beginning of the month. Loved it. Loved loved loved loved loved it. All the funny scenes were hilarious and all the epic scenes were pure undiluted awesome.

Place it firmly in the Top 5 Marvel movies ever along with the two GOTGs, Doctor Strange, and Avengers 1.

Hah...I am glad I am not the only one, although I was hyped prior which probably means my disappointment is even greater. Although I did find the jokes funny, I just think their were too many of them and that they consistently undercut the dramatic moments.
