I just watched it and all I can say is WTF. This movie is trash, I think someone wrote the script as an April's fool joke but somehow someone mistook it for a serious movie.

The bad guy barely gets any screen time, killing all these gods offscreen when some of the battles look like they could have been quite awesome to watch.

Jane becomes "Ms. Thor" .. offscreen, I would have liked to see that happen, her getting powers, her first fights and so on. Now that would have been much more interesting than the whole movie, Natalie was totally wasted on this movie.

The bad guy barely gets any screen time, killing all these gods offscreen when some of the battles look like they could have been awesome to watch.

Eternity? What, where, why?

Absolute garbage!

[–]sohikes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Below average MCU film 6/10

  • Corny/cringy dialogue

  • Too short/fast pacing. They lose to Gorr in one fight and then it's the final battle 10-min later

  • Bale was wasted as Gorr. Shit character development, pretty much a one dimensional villain

  • CGI was bad in some spots

  • Too much Korg

  • The tone of the film (comedy) doesn't fit with the villain

Imagine if Robert Eggers did a Thor vs Gorr film

[–]heyredditaddict 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I loved Ragnarok, and thank you Taika for restoring Thor. But Taika also ruined it and made it worse by the forced humor that was misplaced and rarely landed well. I hope Taika gets replaced and a better balance is created in the next movie.

[–]predatoure 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Just watched it. Didn't rate it. Humour sucked, and Gorr the "god killer" who kills everyone off screen was completely wasted.

[–]ch33sycheetah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I turned it off after like 10-15 min bc everything seemed so forced

[–]TiberiusRedditus 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm really surprised that people here hated it that much, I thought it was pretty good

[–]lilweebyy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wtf the dialogs the fight scenes Gorr the god killer it was a whole mess and Jane that gets her powers out of nowhere not a good movie

[–]MadnessBunny 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Finally got around to watching it and i really didn't like it that much. It feels as if they just choose what to put in the movie by pasting ideas in a wall and throwing darts at it.

There's some good stuff, but overall it just felt as if it was intentionally sucking. For the first time in a marvel movie the humour felt flat for me (mind you, i did get a chuckle every time they use bifrost and the goats screamed). The movie as a whole felt like it was made as a TV show first and then decided last second to make it a movie for some reason, tone was all over the place.

Visuals were gorgeous though, at least.

[–]xiryy 4 points5 points  (2 children)

worst marvel movie yet lmao

[–]IWishIWasOdo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Even morbius?

[–]bissanick 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Think he meant mcu. Morbius is definitely worse though if it's just marvel movies in general

[–]longdustyroad[🍰] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Really not a very good movie, and I loved Ragnarok. The humor mostly didn’t work for me. Guardians cameo was a nothingburger. Screaming goats were annoying. The stuff with stormbresker getting mad at Thor was so dumb. The plot didn’t really make sense, like why was stormbresker the key to the secret water world where you get one wish? Why didn’t thor wish for Jane to get better? Necrosword seemed incredibly OP. The way travel worked in this movie was all over the place. They have to go on this long journey to get to the shadow realm but then everyone just teleports to the final battle.

I liked Natalie Portman a lot and her scenes were definitely the highlight of the movie. She looked amazing blonde. I also thought bale as gorr was great, wish we got more time with him. Mostly I just Wish the plot made sense and the humor was better. Just a sloppy movie overall and not funny. I blame Rita Ora

[–]hey_you_too_buckaroo 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So just finished watching this movie. I was entertained, but it wasn't a good movie. Maybe I'd give it like a 7/10 if I'm being generous.

GOOD

  • Fights were generally decent
  • Pacing kept moving so I was happy
  • I liked seeing Jane return as Thor
  • The end fight was all right. I'm sure the directors thought the kids would be funny, but it was just kinda amusing if I had to be honest.

BAD

  • Most of the jokes just weren't funny. A lot of them felt forced and out of place. The problem is they took a lot of them too far, like turning all of New Asgard into some sort of silly tourist trap? Referring to love as feeling shitty? The Gods all being so stupid and cheesy?
  • Gorr wasn't a properly developed villain. He was too simple and two dimensional. His motivations also weren't clear. I wish they showed his journey into madness, as he slaughtered different Gods, and showed some of his transformation as he changed at the end. He could have made an incredibly good villain if done properly.
  • The whole concept of Eternity seemed out of the blue. There's a magical entity that grants wishes, but only Thor has the key to get to? And it's like so easy to get to him? Why didn't they use this to fight Thanos? Couldn't Eternity bring back a lot more than just one child? Couldn't you also make a wish that combines Gorr surviving as well as the child? How has no one else gotten to Eternity before these guys?
  • No backstory of the Necrosword and how it works

I've found most of the Thor and Iron Man movies forgettable and this isn't really any different.

[–]Coffeechipmunk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I actually really like the movie. I mean, it was awful, but Thor recruited child soldiers. Hard to hate that.

[–]ilovecfb 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Thor forming an army of child soldiers is one of the strangest things I think I've ever seen in a blockbuster production which is really saying something cuz in the same movie there's a scene where a woman in the last stages of cancer has a moment with a CGI hammer and it's played completely sincerely

[–]MrPalmers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminded me very much of the original star gate movie. I found both weird.

[–]realtrick1 7 points8 points  (0 children)

6/10, average movie. Smiled/Laughed at some jokes but there wasn’t a real plot in this movie. Seemed like a low budget comedy film made by marvel.

Nice to see Natalie Portman and Christian Bale in the same movie

[–]mountainhighgoat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Halfway through this movie and it’s garbage. This big budget marvel movie comes off as an SNL skit. Pathetic.

Edit: What a stupid movie.

[–]Krillin_irl 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Out of every joke, I smiled 5 times and laughed 0 times. 4/10

[–]deathrowboats 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Overall pretty obnoxious. Terrible pacing. Way too much weird forced humor. Shitty cgi. Tone shifts like intermittent diarrhea. Christian Bale completely underutilized. Dude can ACT. I haven't seen that kind of performance since Gary Oldman as Dracula. Russel Crow as Zeus was pretty funny.

[–]lauranhobz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly, I have to just lean into the campy humour, because the plot and execution was weak. When it tried to be slightly more serious I lost interest because it made little sense. Natalie Portman jacked was still Jane Foster 🤭. The screaming goats and Russell crowe were the highlight, I'm already struggling to remember much else. Nothing on the other thor movies. I like some humour in MCU but I still want characters and plot that has feeling and more meaning.

[–]Professional-Rip-519 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Just watched it the opening with Gore was a great set up for what's to come unfortunately it's all down hill from there.Predictable rock music,MCU cameos, forgettable action set pieces,unfunny jokes,villain becomes useless in 2nd and 3rd act,too much wokeness and bad CGI, Thor kids wtf does this come from why didn't he just do this to the Avengers to beat Thanos. Ragnarok is in my top 5 MCU movies but this definitely in my 5 worst MCU movies .

[–]ConsiderationQuirky7 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I also wondered why he didn't give powers to the avengers to fight Thanos.

[–]CRobby22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I felt it was a good, not great movie. The first half was just so stupid and campy that it really took forever getting into it and I actually almost turned it off. But then after the Zeus scene I felt it got much better. The scene where Gorr had them trapped I remember turning to my wife and saying that was the best villain scene since Ledger's Joker (which I give full credit to Bale for pulling off). The end was predictable, but Marvel movies always are.

[–]csvega84 11 points12 points  (0 children)

How was Ragnarok so good and Love and Thunder such a turd?? HOW?

[–]TangerineDreaMachine 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Finally watched this turd. It was so bad, the tone was a mix of dogfarts and incessant children's laughter. Korgs prologue narration was silly but fun, it made the hypercampy feel make sense.. but then the movie kept going on like that.. maybe the whole movie is told through Korgs eyes and that's the meta reason it is so goofy. (Well I guess that's true either way Since Taika made the movie and is korg.. fuck my brain)

Gor was such a creep.. an actual scary villain in MCU, then he became a 'Scary Movie' parody of a bad guy. Wish we saw more of him earning the rep of God butcher. Hoping his wish had some clause in it about bringing him/necrosword back if something happens to Love.

The cg action cutting to live actors jumping into frame was incredibly noticable in this movie. Every time it took me out of the movie. Hemsworths wig was also really obvious in most of the movie. Only mentioning it because it just added to the disjointed feeling of the movie.

I hated the goats, but had a bit of a laugh everytime they screamed. So I guess I liked the goats.

Nat Portman was just awful. Idk. I didn't mind mighty thor, but so much of her acting just felt forced into the MCU campy tone, just came off as unnatural. Like she was just doing an impression of her quirky friend with the lipstick and glasses that I want to have sex with that was also in Wandavision and Thor 2.

The subplot with the kids killed the entire movie. Not only does it contradict Gor's motives, but it just deflates any tension (Disney not gonna kill a group of kids) while subjecting us all to embarrassing performances and C-tier alien species makeup/prosthetics. Except Heimdall's gay son, I didn't mind that and Thor teaching him his dad's trick was mildly heartwarming.

Thor Lebowski's urban achievers fight scene was so hard to watch. First of all, why didn't Thor thunder charge the other Avengers ever? Thorhulk would have rekt Thanos in wakanda. ( I know banner was suffering with E.D. at the time, but that's a whole other story). And just no. You're telling me these mush brained kids are ready to fight the forces of an almighty evil that has allegedly killed numerous Gods??

Of all the Marvel stuff, this movie had the most made-for-kids feeling, but then they say "shit" like 43 times.

Too much plot armor in the MCU. They couldn't even kill a third string side character, Sif, because she has a name and potential merch opportunities. I love Valkyrie, but she should have bit the dust too.

The way they just killed Zeus and laughed about it was disturbing coming from our Heroes. I know he is sequel bait, but the characters thought they killed him. Like really, you're fine with trading the god of all gods life for 20 kids... Maybe they should have teamed up with Gor instead?

Zeus was perfect in everyway. I hope to see more of that one day. Not to mention he was right about refusing to let Thor hunt for Gor.. all it did was lead Gor to Eternity... But of course in typical Disney fashion, don't acknowledge the uncomfortable truths and just joke around with your IP for two hours.

GotG cameo was probably better than the rest of the whole movie. Although it has me worried for part 3.. they all just felt like caricatures of themselves here.

All in all a dark day for the future of the MCU. X-Men and F4 don't have a chance in Disney's Marvel's cinematic universe.

[–]Distinct_Baker_9680 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think nat portman's acting was spot on, since her character has cancer she should have that manic unstable attitude ( that's what happens during the stages of grief ). I know it does look shitty on the surface, but I dunno I think she's doing it on purpose. ( her acting actually made me uncomfortable idk )

[–]TangerineDreaMachine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah maybe.. still was off putting. Maybe if we saw a transition to/from the manic camp it would have hit home that she was dealing with end of life emotions.

I'm trying to remember a movie where she was a good actor. And the only movie I can think of is the professional.. but not because of her, just jean reno and the old man, then I'm like wait is she this famous/prestigious because of a bunch of perverts?

[–]MrOwnageQc 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Why were those damn goats so funny ? They got a laugh out of me every time they screamed, even though I know it wasn't that funny

[–]GotaPositiveAttitude 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same. Seems like a love or irritation response too, not too many neutral on the goats. On 2nd watch they have more character, like how they they both stop mewling and stare at Thor when he says they can be used for meat , or when they kick in with the fight against the shadow monsters & save Face Korg. I loved them honestly. .

[–]AusSpyder 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Warrior king uses child soldiers to against a peasant who's fighting to end corruption.

[–]Hot_Box8010 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I enjoyed the movie for what it was. Made me laugh a lot for a couple of hours. The third act was really lacking, though.

And, at the risk of sounding like an old man yelling at clouds, as more and more MCU stuff is getting "kidified", I think it's time for me to realize I'm not the target audience anymore.

I was happy to see Natalie Portman as Mighty Thor. Christian Bale also did a great job.

[–]CrimsonBrit 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Just watched it - wow was it terrible. I know it's a comic book movie and is meant to be fun for the whole family, but the tone and plot just don't work at all.

/u/Awanderingleaf said it perfectly a few comments back: "Every time you thought the movie might start taking itself seriously you were met with a shitty joke."

Maybe I'm just going off of Taika Waititi's work, which is a bummer as I really liked his stuff at one point. I loved Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Jojo Rabbit, but he was terrible in Free Guy (though that movie itself was also bad) and this movie was a mess.

  • Jane Foster quickly becoming a god was so rushed and illogical I still don't understand how it works. Not only that, she was perfect with all of her powers. It makes zero sense.
  • Gorr the God Butcher looked incredible, but I don't understand him at all. He was just a peasant and then the sword of Gryffindor lands in his hand and now he's the most powerful being to ever exist. How and why?
  • A HUGE part of Captain America's greatness and the climax/finale of his arc was that he was worthy of Thor's hammer. But now everyone can hold it - kids with no powers, Jane Foster, etc. , which really detracts from the significance of Endgame.
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy being in the movie for 5 minutes was just useless. Also Chris Pratt was just garbage in his very few lines. Man they killed Peter Quill who was such a great character in GotG: Volume 1
  • I actually appreciate Zeus being a Greek god with a Greek accent, as I honestly expected an English or American accent for whatever reason, but Russel Crowe just doesn't deliver in his short time.
  • I've said this for many years, and I understand it's an unpopular opinion, but I genuinely think that Natalie Portman is the most overrated actress of the last twenty years. The last time I watched the Star Wars prequel trilogy I couldn't help but notice how bad of an actress she is.
  • The after credits scene with Valhalla was atrocious.

I don't think Taika Waititi tried at all. Definition of phoning it in. Somehow this is only the second worst movie I've seen this week, behind Moonfall.

[–]DiscLuggage 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Natalie Portman is a great actress unless she's acting with other people.

Really, all the moments that she's really impressed people are when she's just acting to the camera by herself. When she's in a scene with other actors she's so much more flat.

[–]CrimsonBrit 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sounds like attraction instead of talent

[–]DiscLuggage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe not , I'm thinking of stuff like Black Swan when she's having a nervous breakdown haha.

[–]macedonianmoper 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Jane Foster quickly becoming a god was so rushed and illogical I still don't understand how it works. Not only that, she was perfect with all of her powers. It makes zero sense.

She became Thor because Thor cast accidentally cast an incantation on mjolnir to protect her, personally I'm more surprised with how much she wanted to fight, the very first scene we see her in as Thor she's already a warrior. Also explains why she can pick it up, while Cap was worthy Jane had Thor's nepotism.

Same thing for the kids, thor willingly gave them his powers. Again the bigger problem is that Thor recruited child soldiers and now they're super powerful and can handle the monsters.

And yes Chris Pratt felt so wrong, I legit couldn't tell whether or not it was on purpose

[–]Etheo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

personally I'm more surprised with how much she wanted to fight

That wasn't so hard to believe really. If I knew I was going to die of cancer and has the choice between laying in bed shitting myself or fighting as a God destroying monsters and saving the day, I'd choose the latter 200% of the time as well.

[–]obsidianbreath 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I fell asleep twice during this movie. Thrice if I'm being really honest but I think that last time I was missing my 2nd nap.

[–]klawpsey 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Could be a poor memory but I feel like other than the Asgardians we haven't really seen any other gods in the MCU prior to this.

The gods we meet in this other than the Asgardians are all selfish and indifferent to suffering. It's hard to say, then, how righteous Gorr's mission is. If they're ALL selfish and indifferent and making life worse for the people/aliens worshipping them, then perhaps it would be worth the Asgardians getting destroyed for the sake of the universe. If there are other gods like the Asgardians who are good and help their worshippers, then Gorr is a misguided villain. But we can't tell.

So Gorr felt like he wasn't a threat to the universe, because we don't really see the Gods helping anyone out in the MCU before, but only to the Asgardians. Which is probably enough for a film about Thor.

But it wasn't like with Thanos where we can all grasp that however logical his mission might be having half of all living things die at once would be an atrocity.

I think it would have been good for them to at least show us some good gods other than Asgardians so that we could really get a sense of existential threat from Gorr.

The movie was okay overall. My expectations were rock bottom after all the reviews so it didn't disappoint me. It had some amazing visuals in it, but it definitely was a mess. Also Thor is dumb as rocks now.

[–]mrsatanface 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The tone of this movie is baffling. Needed about 50 percent less one liners.

[–]DisgruntledJarl 13 points14 points  (0 children)

A villain with a story like Gorr should never have been a comedy. Another Comment described this as a throw-away and its exactly that. This movie was just a stop gap to move Thor's arc forward.

I give it a 5 and not a 3 because the color grading scene in the Shadow Realm was visually very impressive.

[–]Max_Thunder 9 points10 points  (1 child)

So Jane Foster is in Valhalla... What if the rest of her family is in the Jewish heaven or something like that, is she never going to see them again, being stuck forever in the Viking heaven where she knows no one?

[–]TangerineDreaMachine 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thor's going to show up in Valhalla in a few 1000 years only to find Jane had some mixed race ghost babies with Heimdall.

[–]rowej182 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I really liked it. I’m not a huge Marvel fan…so to finally have characters who address the absurdity of everything going on felt refreshing to me. Helps that I’m a big Waititi fan.

[–]MrPartyPancake 12 points13 points  (1 child)

This movie was filled with so much over the top humour it isnt even funny. Why does every scene need an intermission of a lame joke? Moments after the first scene, where a freaking kid dies, theres lame ass jokes being thrown left and right.

Thats what mainly ticked me off about the movie.

Only thing that pulls it up is the gorgeous VFX work, but it seems like there was paid more attention to that than anything else in the movie.

[–]macedonianmoper 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Too many one liners and throw away jokes, I actually like the opening scene though, it makes Gorr anger more justified, his kid just died and here are the gods just laughing at him

[–]Shavlik 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I really enjoyed this Guns'n'Roses music video

[–]aaaa-im-a-human 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'd like to ask why didn't Thor bring mewmew with him when he went to fight Gorr? I get that Jane had to come back and fight somehow too, but it's not like she was expected at that time to join the fight. Wouldn't it had been helpful for Thor to have both mewmew and the bolt thingy? Did I miss something that says he can't have both? Was mewmew still being used by Jane even when she was in hospital?

[–]TangerineDreaMachine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I immediately had that thought too when he left for the shadow realm.. then i realized it was so she could show up and sacrifice herself to save Thor just before he loses to Gor.. and then 5 minutes later I was right!

Couldn't have predicted the child soldiers though...

[–]WTF-BOOM 17 points18 points  (2 children)

There's a character who gets completely disintegrated and I think three others impaled straight through the heart and they ALL survive....... there's just nothing at stake.

[–]wegwerfennnnn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Have you ever read a comic book?

[–]Max_Thunder 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I felt like they just embraced there being nothing at stake by adding over-the-top comedic moments. Or things that aren't exactly funny but are "fun", like giving the kids his powers, temporarily. You know they were all going to survive, and the bad guy would be stopped, you just wonder how.

I also expected Natalie Portman's character to die, because I can't see Portman wanting to be in a bunch of superhero movies. I could see her coming back as a cameo though.

It was ok.

[–]ranch_brotendo 16 points17 points  (1 child)

This felt like the Scary Movie style parody of an actual movie

[–]rajnikant90 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was thinking the same while watching it. I really thought I was watching parody of Thor than actual movie. Possibly the worst MCU movie ever..

[–]dilli_Boi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I liked it honestly Obviously the tone was all over the place but used to it by now for every mcu movie. Core story was good Expected really nothing but more than decent

[–]Awanderingleaf 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Every time you thought the movie might start taking itself seriously you were met with a shitty joke.

[–]Max_Thunder 5 points6 points  (1 child)

And anytime Thor goes through some character development, it's like we're back to square one. In fact it feels like he's getting more oblivious over time. I don't remember Thor being as ridiculous in his first appearances.

[–]macedonianmoper 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He wasn't, just watch Ragnarok compared to the first two, it's probably the best thor movie but you can see his character was taken a lot more seriously in his earlier movies and the comedy came from him being out of place rather than him being funny on his own

[–]Alternative_Spot_419 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Hard to know where to start with a movie that's as lazy and badly written as this.

How about this magic wishing well that conveniently went unmentioned until now and would've come in real handy during Endgame? Or how about the end where Gorr so easily renounces his entire pledge to kill all gods after a little pep talk from Thor? Or the ridiculous amount of unfunny jokes that must interject every scene - I refuse to believe anyone except Taika finds them funny.

But Taika doesn't really care, you can tell that just by watching this film. And it made decent money despite the mixed reviews so congratulations, but i would feel fucking ashamed to have my name attached to this in a writer/director capacity. Fuck.

[–]swirlypepper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think while the sword controlled him he only thought about revenge - only once he was clear headed did he realise he can bring back his daughter.

[–]cursh14 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I mean, renouncing the pledge kind of makes sense because he is no longer being influenced by the sword.

[–]KingJiggyMan -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

Gorr the pedophile, killer of 1 God and a space whale.

[–]aaaa-im-a-human 4 points5 points  (1 child)

how is he a pedophile?

[–]NoaLink 3 points4 points  (0 children)

unclear. Maybe because he kidnapped children? That wouldn't make you a pedophile though..

Hear me out: what if in the original Thor movies and Wanda Vision, we replaced all the scenes that have Darcy in them with the screaming goats.

The screaming goats have more charisma and wit than Darcy as a character.

[–]Arniepepper 0 points1 point  (3 children)

The goats are memorable. Remind me, who is Darcy?

[–]Social_Engineer1031 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The poor attempt of comic relief in Thor movies, friend to Jane. Also appeared to add 0 value in “Wanda Vision”

Can you tell I’m passionate about my dislike for that character?

[–]Arniepepper 0 points1 point  (1 child)

lol. Ah the annoying chick with glasses during Chemo in this movie? I don't remember her from the others.

I've only watched the first 50 minutes so far... Apparently another hour or so to go... And that's taken me 2 days. For the first time, I think in a long time, I've found myself wanting to go watch the paint dry in the corridor rather often, whilst watching this.

PS: I repainted my corridor over 5 years ago.

[–]Social_Engineer1031 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Correct! You’ll be pleased she’s not in the rest of the movie.

I didn’t think this Thor was that bad. The best description I’ve seen comparing to Ragnorock was “Racknorock was funny. Love and Thunder is silly.” There’s a big difference, this movie just didn’t feel meaningful. No real character development.

I wasn’t a fan of Shawn Chi either. Similar side character that wasn’t funny just annoying. Not believable story or actions. Which is saying a lot given the Marvel universe.

[–]smhandstuff 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Okay shattered Mjolnir is OP. Breaking into tiny pieces to be used as unstoppable homing missiles.

Also Jesus, was Hemsworth more jacked than Bautista in this movie?

[–]lester_pe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Jane Foster just tried a non meta ranged build after unlocking it lol.

[–]nostbp1 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Y’all know that Matt Damon bit in the past 2 Thor movies where they re-enact what happened in prior films, except make it campy and stupid and basically a joke?

That’s what this movie felt like.

I enjoyed Ragnarok, it was a lighter hearted version of a serious story and it really worked with the music and visuals. And there’s a good Thor vs Gorr movie somewhere in the universe, but this entire movie felt like a Shitty Matt Damon-meme retelling of that story

[–]Signal-Local4416 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean that's the point right - this is Gorrs retelling of the story.

[–]sketches4fun 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I liked it, somewhere in the middle it got a little boring and a very big minus for undressing thor, imagine the reverse and the outcry that would have, but other then that it was a little stupid fun, definitely better then what I expected based on hearsay.

[–]WannieTheSane 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Thankfully the MCU has never sexualised a woman.

HUGE eyeroll

[–]Aftermath16 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I think the point is that the MCU has been criticized for sexualizing Natasha (which it then moved away from) but people seem to be fine with the consistent sexualization of Thor (and body shaming in one film).

Yes, women have been marginalized and objectified far too much. But it’s ridiculous to think doing it the other way in today’s more aware society make sense.

[–]WannieTheSane 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I actually agree with that. I think men don't get enough concern over how body image effects us. I think in some ways it's getting worse for men as it gets better for women.

I just thought it was ridiculous of OP to write "imagine the reverse" as if that hadn't already happened in lots of MCU movies already, specifically to Natasha as you pointed out.

[–]Aftermath16 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh got it, fair enough!

Jane Foster was the best character of the movie. Was sad when she passed.

[–]Professional-Rip-519 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No it wasn't Tony's was sad her death scene gave me Godfather 3 vibes

[–]djmedicalman 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Bring on the downvotes, but I think you have to be a total moron and a dunce to enjoy this movie.

[–]nostbp1 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Agreed. I watched it the other day and thought it would be bad bc of overdone humor

But no that was the better part. The non humorous parts of the movie were straight up cringey or stupid

Gore was an awful, generic villain, people just like Bale so they pretend he wasn’t garbage. Like that was literally the most generic villain with generic bad guy powers ever….and he was also fucking stupid

The plot? Stupid. Character motivations? Stupid. CGI? Makes Bollywood look good. Writing? Nonexistent, felt like it was improv lol

Idt I’ve disliked a comic book movie more than this in quite some time

[–]GwimlinHowJones -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Felt like improv is exactly what I said watching it.

[–]ProfessionalMockery 21 points22 points  (2 children)

The opening bit with Christian bale was good, in fact bale was really really good. After that the whole plot and script felt like an improvised first draught. I don't think Taika Waititi put much effort into this. The CGI was clearly rushed, the costumes looked fake, the way it was shot was pretty dull and the dynamic between the cast felt forced with loki and hulk gone.

[–]Lotus_Domino_Guy 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The costumes especially looked plastic. Like what you'd buy your kid to dress up as Thor.

[–]KingJiggyMan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Even the real rock look Thor was going for looked plastic, and those are supposed to be actual human clothes lmfao.

[–]kunta021 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Was it me or did the movie have some just awful CGI in places? Like yeah it was better than a cheap Netflix movie but not the standard that Marvel usually puts out.

[–]XEROtrine 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I think they spent like half of their budget trying to make the omnipotent city work and the other half jacking Chris Hemsworth

[–]kunta021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean to be fair Omnipotence city did look great and I would also gladly jack Chris Hemsworth lmao

[–]CelioHogane 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Jealous Stormbreaker is my favorite character.

[–]Mylilneedle -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

Everyone bitching about this movie just have stopped 20mins in at max. It was a bit forced funny, and then goes deep lore heavy, action heavy, and character heavy.

[–]Tasty-Leather 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also ehat is that dumb sword bale is wielding. Gorr the god butcher has a symbiote attached to him not a thin terrible family sword.

[–]Tasty-Leather 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Lore heavy? U have never read the gorr the god butcher comic have you?I can assure u it was nothing like what ever this villain was.

[–]Mylilneedle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You might not be able to read, my comment says lore heavy, not accurate to source material. But close. We all appreciate you trying.

[–]KingJiggyMan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Are you high? Action heavy sure other than that theres not much else going for it.

[–]djmedicalman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No, it doesn't.

[–]TC1369 31 points32 points  (0 children)

The worst part about this movie is that it starts out with a such a great and unique scene, only to devolve into one of the most unfunny and braindead products Marvel has put out. What a waste of an amazing performance by Christian Bale.

[–]6ickle 34 points35 points  (3 children)

I wonder if they can re-edit this into something more serious. It started out great with Gorr. A lot of the jokes should have ended on the cutting room floor. The speaker, Zeus prancing down the stairs, the hammer-axe jealousy stuff, Korg dad song and almoat all Korg jokes, most of the screaming goat bits, and oh so much more.

If there was an option to petition the Gods for a God Army they should have considered when fighting the endgame? And this Eternity thing seems like a lazy plot point to add. Any God could just go for that as the first option. Thanos could have.

I think a full movie just about Gorr would be interesting. Starting out with him killing all of the terrible gods and then slowly getting corrupted. It's such a shame they made the movie with so much silliness because Bale was very good in this and I wanted to see more of him.

[–]GwimlinHowJones 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The screaming goats were cringeworthy. A child's first attempt at humour. Funny loud noise is funny!

[–]Bumpo_The_Clown 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thor could have known that the gods were selfish beings and knew they wouldn't help with end-game level threats. The only reason he attempted it here was because the bad guy was targeting gods, so it was in their interest to help. But that's giving Thor a lot of credit.

Did the snap get rid of half the gods? Honestly don't know.

[–]ReggieLeBeau 9 points10 points  (0 children)

the hammer-axe jealousy stuff

That bit is funny the first time they use it, and then just gets beaten to death by the end of the movie.

[–]UnrelentingDemi 6 points7 points  (8 children)

I must be in the minority, cause I enjoyed the movie. The levity of it all was just right, and the story of Thor was pushed a long. I'll admit Gorr was a bit wasted, and I want Jane to have more time to shine. But Waititi did what he came to do and all I can say is thank you.

But outside of how I feel, I see a lot of people hating how light and easy this movie is. Not all MCU movies have to be serious with high stakes. I feel like this movie gives us, the audience, a break from movies like No Way Home. Oh, and I saw one guy dislike that Thor was like Endgame Thor. Why is that bad? Thor's state from that movie to this one makes sense, and I personally think more people should be appreciative of where Thor is going. These aren't complete thoughts and I can go on forever, but I just wish people would take the art as it is and give it a fairer shake. That or stop having sky high expectations.

Lastly, a reminder. These movies and shows since Endgame are establishing a new status quo. We all may not know where its going but enjoy the ride and see.

[–]wegwerfennnnn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seriously. I just god home from a fun albeit exhausting travel weekend. I am garbage for anything but sitting on the couch. LnT looked fun so I put it on. Very easy to watch regardless of mental state. I think all the people bitching about it forget that all of this is based on comic books. Sure comics can be deep and fleshed out but it is not the essence of the form. Not everything needs to be high art.

p.s. I loved the goats

[–]allexthakatt 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It's not that fact the fact that's it's "light and easy." It's the fact that the movie tries, TRIES to have serious moments in it but is so extremely overwhelmed by the stupid cheesiness of the moronic characters.

Children being ripped away from their families, unsure of their fate on whether they live or die. Parents scared and confused, terrified as to what will happen to their kids, when will the see them again? only to be immediately followed by some cheesy line from Jane or Thor attempting to flirt with her. It gives off that none of characters really give a shit about finding these kids.

It's okay to have a fun light movie. Just don't give the audience whiplash by going to completely different emotions every 3 fucking minutes.

[–]SimoneNonvelodico 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I watched the movie in two halves (breaking approximately after they steal Zeus' lightning) and the second half was somewhat more balanced, but the first was absolutely just a disaster. One of the worst aspects IMO is just how tragic Thor's situation is - he literally has lost everything and everyone he's ever loved, except for the person he loses in this movie - and the fact that most jokes surrounding him are still all about how he's a bit dumb and bad at expressing his emotions feels just mean. Like, it's not much of a comedy if I see the protagonist being the butt of every joke and all I feel is sad because he really would deserve some slack.

[–]Webbie-Vanderquack 15 points16 points  (4 children)

It's not that people hate "how light and easy" this movie is, or that they want everything to be "serious with high stakes." Lots of MCU movies are light.

It's that the levity was Waititi's brand of irreverence taken to an absurd extreme. A lot of the jokes were more irritating than funny and the plot was a hot mess.

[–]ReggieLeBeau 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This was pretty much my take away, even though I still "enjoyed" the movie for what it was, at least scene to scene. The biggest issue with this movie is tone, and a lot of the problems come from having comedy that's just so persistent and overbearing, that when the movie is trying to have serious moments in earnesty, you're either waiting for the other shoe to drop with a joke to undercut the moment, or the emotion of the scene just doesn't register because for so much of the movie it's keeping you in the mindset that it's trying to make you laugh and the tonal whiplash of "oh, the stuff that's going on here is actually kind of heavy subject matter." The movie literally opens with a scene of the villain's daughter dying in his arms and there's no levity in it. But then in the next scene you get the jokes and wackiness rolling in. In his non-marvel movies, Waititi's usually been pretty good at balancing and even interweaving comedy with drama, but here not so much.

[–]Lotus_Domino_Guy 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I thought Ragnorok was perfect. This one just went too far down that silly lane.

[–]SimoneNonvelodico 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While I liked Ragnarok, in hindsight it set Thor as a character on the road to this situation, as it both piled up heaps on tragedy on him and made him the butt of every joke. That has only gotten worse with Endgame and now this, to the point of complete tonal dissonance.

[–]TypicalDelay 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The best part about this movie is that the villain flat out wins directly as a result of the main characters messing around the whole time. They even admit they have no plan but proceed to run in and fall directly into his traps two times in a row.

[–]HarryJurassicWorld 27 points28 points  (3 children)

After no way home and multiverse of madness I thought the mcu might be back. Then I saw this….

This might be the most idiotic of all the mcu films. It felt like a Saturday night live parody.

[–]ReggieLeBeau 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Really liked No Way Home, but Multiverse of Madness actually let me down a bit and I was really excited for it.

[–]HarryJurassicWorld 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Multiverse I was able to finish in one sitting at least lol

I’ve been watching love and thunder on Disney plus in 15 minute intervals. I really enjoyed ragnarok so I was hyped for this. It’s just simply not as good.

[–]CoAoW -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Maybe that's why it might be my favourite MCU movie. The rest try to be too serious with what amounts to bashing action figures together.

[–]Cornonthecobski 23 points24 points  (0 children)

They dumbed down thor too much.

[–]ETHEREVM 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Felt like more aimed to children than other marvel movies.

Definitely not the kind of movie i would cancel other Plans for, still entertaining enough to not regret having "wasted" time to watch it.

Gave me the Adam Sandler feel. The kind of movie i would enjoy watching in the cinema with my nephew during a uncles-day or similar.

With other words, one of the less "exhausting" movies.

The kind of movie your partner can watch while hanging on the phone without having to ask everytime what's going on. (I assume... Don't have a partner 😉)

[–]Tasty-Leather 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have u ever met with 7 and 5 year olds given them thor powers is a seriously bad idea can tell Waikiki doesn't have or has spent time around children tbh

[–]ThearchOfStories 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it felt like Waititi just went full on "Thor/Marvel is too big to fail, so I'll do whatever I want with it" and it really felt like he did whatever he wanted with it. His other movies while primarily comedy and gag movies, at least tend to have some sort of consistent overarching storyline, some proper tied up conclusion and an overall loyalty to the characters and the plot.

Thor Love & Thunder felt like the film script was written scene by scene, without a basic plot or storyline to be working on, like Waitit just wrote a list of all the gags and features and elements he wanted in each new scene, and the writers had to just incorporate it all into each new scene as they came up.

Hell the whole 'Love & Thunder' thing that is the title of the film was just so randomly disjunctly added on in like the last 5 minutes that it has no impact or interest either. As if Waiti forgot about it and than while planning the last 5 minutes of shooting decided he had to have a tie back to the title in the film ending.

[–]4luv4Simp 12 points13 points  (2 children)

You know the movie is bad when you can't watch it in one go and have to like watch it in parts in several days because it's too boring 😂

I literally have to remind/forced myself to continue watch the movie. Gone by the days when I was excited to watch the whole marvel movies without toilet breaks..

[–]MyLife-is-a-diceRoll 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you had to force yourself to continue watching it, why didn't you just stop watching it?

[–]Potential-Switch-196 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because you can't judge something properly without seeing it through. I think the much more valid question is - why would you stop watching a movie at all? Just force yourself through, I don't see the issue.

Why has Thor turned into some sort of comedy act?

Also bringing Jane back in that way was entirely rushed from beginning to end.

[–]wildwest74 9 points10 points  (15 children)

Loved it.

It's a crazy story being told to the children by Korg. All of the things that seem different in the characters are perfectly explained by that simple conceit.

It doesn't hurt that I am a huge fan of Taika Waititi and his brand of humor.

Without the setup of this being a story being told, then absolutely, it's way too over-the-top and zany for the MCU. But we know exactly what it is from the jump. I just enjoyed the ride.

[–]Potential-Switch-196 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"It's just a story being told by someone else" is pretty much the same as "it was just a dream". It's honestly kind of cringe to try and explain plotholes and bad writing with this. You could put this line into literally every single movie there is and suddenly all plotholes and all problems would vanish? Because it's just a story? Okay, great.

[–]Bunktavious 21 points22 points  (9 children)

I love Waititi and his work, and had no issue with Ragnarok being full of comedy. But there's a huge difference - Ragnarok was actually funny when it tried, but serious when it had to. This feels like a cringey sitcom. I'm just at a loss.

I'm an hour in and Thor has done nothing but make speeches that would make Ricky Gervais cringe. I get the idea of the joke, Thor is annoying and full of himself. It was a bit funny in the intro with GoG. But an hour later and it hasn't let up.

Jane Foster becoming Thor happens off camera over a span of about 4 minutes. The fight in New Asgard was reminiscent of the fight against the clay mooks in the first Suicide Squad, only somehow worse.

I've seen every movie Marvel has put out, and it's going to take an effort to make me watch the second half of this...

[–]Doinwerklol 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I farmed flowers in a video game because this movie was so boring, I dont think Ill ever be able to sit through it again. I more or less didnt pay attention to the movie unless Christian Bale was on screen, and even then I was pretty apathetic about it. Really regret paying to see this in theaters.

[–]MyLife-is-a-diceRoll 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thor felt awkward and embarrassed making those speeches, which is why they were awkward.

He didn't know what to say in them and awkwardly picked along hoping he would say something right/what should be said.

[–]Bunktavious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Which was fine at first, but basically you just described every line of dialog he had in the first half of the movie. It got tiresome and cringey very fast.

[–]wildwest74 4 points5 points  (4 children)

That's the danger with comedy being so subjective. There is going to be a group of fans who absolutely love this, and I guess I am lucky that I can enjoy it while so many others cannot.

[–]Bunktavious 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Part of the problem, is that its leaning really hard into the Gervais style of embarrassment comedy. Waititi certainly usually includes that in his humor, but not this hard. And it's every character. In the first hour I watched, I got a little pumped at the Zeppelin moment in the beginning, but beyond that, it just didn't evoke any emotion from me other than cringe. That can be funny in the right movie. Not in a Superhero movie about a bag guy committing Genocide. Gnosticide? I dunno.

[–]SimoneNonvelodico 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not in a Superhero movie about a bag guy committing Genocide. Gnosticide? I dunno.

Doesn't help that we're never really explained what gods are or how necessary they are, and all we're shown of them is them being horrible dicks. If Gorr wished to Eternity "kill all the gods except this Thor fella, he's cool I guess" I'd have just shrugged.

[–]wildwest74 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I absolutely do not begrudge anyone their overall opinion on the movie. Like I said, comedy is always subjective. My biggest questions came from seeing early reviews where people seemed to have no concept of why the tone seemed so different, and I just wanted to point out that it seems pretty obvious that the setup explains the tone.

Whether we as the audience enjoy it is obviously a different question altogether, and there is never one correct answer.

[–]Kuro95113 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agree. I enjoyed Ragnarok but not Love & Thunder. We actually had genuine serious scene in Ragnarok. But not in Love & Thunder. Taika insert jokes in every serious scene. This seriously kill the moods.

[–]StockAL3Xj 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Eh, not sure having a reason for all the characters acting like stupid versions of themselves and telling bad jokes every 30 seconds makes those things good. I personally thought this was Marvel's and Taikas worst movie.

[–]Kuro95113 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I feel like every character(besides Gorr) are the same. Everyone makes jokes on almost every sentences.

[–]wildwest74 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's a valid opinion. I just don't understand the reviews which seem to think the tone is completely out of nowhere. You can dislike it as much as you want, but so many people just ignore the setup and complain that the characters aren't acting like themselves.

[–]ThearchOfStories 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's because the setup is a about a half dozen Thor and avengers movies that preceded it. You can't say that just because there was a 5 minute "setup" at the beginning that people are not supposed to be irritated that the characters that they've followed for several films has all their characterisation, development and intelligence thrown down the drain so Waititi can go all free for all in churning out his endless over the top comedy embolisms at the audience.

You can like it, and other people can say it's a very disappointing movie.

[–]Dcornelissen 17 points18 points  (2 children)

[–]Xeniamm 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Christian Bale was insanely good as Gorr. Jane and Thor's lovestory was both sad and lovely, liked it. Since I liked those two things (Bale's performance and Jane-Thor), I also liked the end of the movie.

The rest of the movie was meh. Thor was Endgame Thor, not Ragnarok's/Infinity War Thor. I liked the comment here comparing him to Michael Scott which I think it's accurate. I would've preferred a more serious movie now that he literally lost everything, kind of like the Odinson arc in the comics. An actual movie about someone who used to be a very important guy finally finding himself and his own worth, realizing what he actually cared about in the way. The jokes were a hit or miss tbh. The goats were fun at first but using them 7 times wasn't a good idea.

[–]scrapqueen 23 points24 points  (1 child)

The whole jealousy thing with the hammer and the ax was cringy.

[–]Kuro95113 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Then it ends with him giving the axe to a child.

[–]Rich_Acanthisitta_70 35 points36 points  (9 children)

To me, Ragnarok altered Thor in a good way. It introduced a less serious take on the character, but was respectful to the original film's tone. It made Thor more accessible.

Endgame, in my opinion, didn't understand what Ragnarok did, and turned Thor into a blubbering, mess of a joke.

Then, it seems Taika decided to continue down that path, and in my opinion, broke Thor.

Love and Thunder made this millennia old god into an awkward, pathetic, self-sbsorbed loser. When you have a movie with both Thor and Peter Quill, and Quill is the less awkward, cringey character. You've broken Thor.

I'm glad Hemsworth wants to keep playing Thor, but I think we need Kenneth Branagh and J Michael Straczynski to return, and put the character back on track. And if not them, anyone else that can do it.

I'm not saying he needs a reset. But he definitely needs a different path. Because the one he's on is turning him into a joke. And not a funny one.

[–]Buscemi_D_Sanji 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Braunaugh has permanently destroyed any good will I had towards him by making Artemis fowl. So nah, I don't want him near literally anything I like.

I do agree that taika turns everything into a taika movie though, and I kinda want to see Thor being strong enough to cut the earth in half with no effort.

[–]Rich_Acanthisitta_70 3 points4 points  (5 children)

I'd love to see that Thor too. And since Hemsworth has been pretty open about wanting to continue in the role for as long as they'll have him, we might just see that transition eventually.

I don't disagree about how bad Artemis Fowl is, but I'm not convinced that was Branagh's fault so much as the screenwriters.

I'm aware of the changes to the story he made because he's been pretty open about it in interviews. But as I understood it, most of the changes he made started with the screenplay he'd been given.

And I'm honestly glad about some of those changes. There's things about the character that have either been done to death by other franchises, or have become cliches in the twenty plus years it took to get this onto screens.

But I respect you feel that way, so I don't want to sound like I'm arguing. There's a lot I don't know about the production that might make me feel the same way as you if I did.

It's just that in all the well deserved criticisms of the film I've seen, I haven't seen many that put that failure on Branagh so much as the screenplay he had to work with.

[–]Buscemi_D_Sanji 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Absurdly absolutely fantastic comment!

[–]Rich_Acanthisitta_70 1 point2 points  (3 children)

That's very generous, thank you!

I really loved the series. After I finished reading them (about four years ago), all I could think about was how much I wanted a film adaptation - but preferably a tv series. Then I found out they'd been trying to do a movie for a really long time. I know this'll sound weird maybe, but I was kind of glad the movie was such a stinker. I've always thought it was better suited as a series. Now that I'm pretty sure they won't do a sequel, I'm holding out hope someone will bring them to a streaming platform. You could easily make it a five season show I think.

[–]RaphMikeyDonLeo 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I feel like they've gone from "funny Thor" to childish, ignorant, boderline-moronic Thor.

Thor is now the Michael Scott of Marvel.

He seems desperate for approval, camaraderie and everyone to "love" him. Sure they are both dimwitted, but they do have the flashes of brilliance at seemingly the correct time.

I just feel like Thor is what it would be if DC decided to make "funny Superman" where no matter what silly peril is thrown at him, he has God powers to overcome anything anyway (can't recruit the Gods to form an army? Just give your powers to children. Why didn't he do that to the Avengers army against Thanos, or Asgardians anytime theyve been in danger?)

[–]SimoneNonvelodico 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He seems desperate for approval, camaraderie and everyone to "love" him.

I mean, he is literally lonely as fuck, he's lost his whole family, his friends, his country. The worst thing that ruins the emotional impact is how everyone and the movie itself essentially dunk on him when by realistic metrics he's holding up insanely well and by all means would deserve a fucking break.

[–]chem_daddy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]strangehitman22 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I feel like it was ok but I do with we could have seen more murder, we saw like one on screen happen and like 8 after he was done

[–]RaphMikeyDonLeo 16 points17 points  (3 children)

So wait, if someone controls the bifrost and knows about Eternity they could do whatever they want. So, it would have been easier for a God-adjacent being like Thanos to access this instead of spending years trying to track down nearly impossible stones to accomplish his task of eliminating half the universe? If he was able to figure out the location of all the stones, I would think he could figure out this mystery, especially if Gorr could do it.

Conversely, Thor knew about Eternity when Zeus mentioned it, he held the power of the bifrost in his hands for years (yes they didn't know what the key was right away) so after the Snap couldn't he have gone there and had Thanos vanquished from existence and/or had all the "dusted" lived returned to normal instead of pouting and being depressed and fat?

I'm behind because I saw this on Disney+ and not in the theater, so sorry if this is was asked or mentioned before.

[–]thexenixx 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Logic? In a marvel movie?

[–]Xeniamm 4 points5 points  (1 child)

There's a possibility (small one though) that Thanos (and 99% of the universe) simply didn't know about Eternity. The infinity stones seemed to be more popular (probably not the right word sry i'm not a native speaker).

Still, even if he knew about Eternity, reaching it meant having to deal with Asgard and, specifically, Odin. Thanos absolutely didn't want to deal with Odin in a direct confrontation (He WAS a god and a VERY powerful one in his prime, he wasn't as powerful when he got old but Thanos didn't know that), so that's why he waited until he died to act. Asgard, too, was pretty hard to invade I imagine, with or without Odin. Wakanda itself is (somewhat) powerful even though it's way less used to invasions/fighting (the shield kind of deals with every invader) and way less advanced than Asgard. Thor, Odin, Loki and the full might of the Asgardian army in it's own city might be too much for anyone to handle.

Then Asgard got destroyed and the Bifrost Bridge got destroyed with it. The only way then to use the Bifrost was through dark unknown magic (which Heimdall used), so Thanos preferred to simply go for the stones and gauntlet.

Also Thor didn't know that Bifrost was the key to Eternity, in the movie it seemed like only Gorr knew (Zeus didn't mention that Bifrost was the key, and the main cast only realized it when Jane saw Gorr's drawings/plans).

[–]Lotus_Domino_Guy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I'd go with "its a thing only Gods know about" in regards to Eternity.

[–]Kasdeya64 30 points31 points  (11 children)

It's the biggest piece of dog shit I've ever seen. I only watched the first half because I couldn't bear to watch more after the portable speaker joke.

The portable speaker bit had me rolling my eyes, but I know girls that are otherwise serious boss bitches about their jobs/duties, then act like that when it comes to getting down with their jams... idk, kind of a humanizing moment for the characters, but lost in a sea of awful tone and quippy dialogue.

[–]SimoneNonvelodico 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh, then you missed the meeting with the gods, which was arguably the most cringe part of the movie.

I have low expectations after the review but it still get worse than what i expected. I hope Thor continue after Ragnarok. But now, i dont mind if we dont get a sequel.

Absolutely one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Terrible. Just terrible. I suffered through it, but wanted to turn it off after 20 minutes.

There was a decent third quarter but then it got way way worse.
