“Old Timey Talk”
Here we’re introduced to Murdildahorn who’s basically my version of “Valkyrie”. Since “Valkyrie” is the movie let’s talk about “Thor: Ragnarok” which came out this weekend. I saw it on Saturdaty and it’s pretty good. I’d give it a B+. A lot is being said about it so let’s go through some of that
- Is it the best “Marvel” movie?
No. “Avengers” 1 is probably unbeatable at this point. I’ve said this before, but at this point it looks like we’re at the “pretty good” phase with “Marvel”. I doubt we’ll get anything as bad the firt 2 “Thor” movie, but I doubt we’ll get anything as good as “Avengers 1”, “Captain America 2”, or “GotG 1”. “Infinity War” is the only chance and it will almost certainly be bogged down in too many characters to be truly great
- Is it too “jokey”?
Usually this is a real bullshit thing thrown at “Marvel” movies, but this case yes the movie is too “jokey”. The jokes-to-drama ratio is not as well balanced as it in movies like “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2”. The best example of this is one scene where a character is introduced and they almost immediately fall off their ship. It’s not funny enough to make up for how much it undercuts the character
- Is it the best comic book movie this year so far?
No. “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” is still by far the best comic book movie this year. It is considerably better than “Wonder Woman” and a bit better than “Spiderman: Homecoming”.
Tomorrow we meet Barbarious (my version “Thor”) along with Freedom Female, and The Smasher as they get into critiquing and legal stuff. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
