    Know what's even more impressive than 80% improv? From what I've heard, the first Iron Man was pretty much *100%.* Jeff Bridges was quoted as saying that it was like working on a several million dollar college film. So yes, all your favorite RDJ lines were 100% purely RDJ being awesome.

    This movie is hands down the worst depiction of marvel comics and the jokes at many points made it look like the creators didn't care about the story at all. Sure, the Thor franchise needed a boost, but the Ragnarok story itself allows for everything it needed. This movie however crapped all over it. The deaths of Odin, Volstagg, Fandral and Hogun, the destruction of Mjolnir, the destruction of Asgard... These are supposed to be dramatic moments, but instead they're laughed away with poor jokes.
    Of course I did like many parts, like the "get help" scene, or the interaction with Dr Strange. But the movie fails to deliver the story.

    Thor was my least favorite character growing up but since the first appearance of Thor and the MCU, Thor has become of of my favorite characters. I used to like Batman the most but Thor is now better than Batman because of these movies. Hoping there is Thor 4 movie someday

    This movie is a piece of shit. Worst kind og lame childish humor i have ever seen in a marvel movie. They shit all over the Thor caracter and turns him into a joke. First marvel movie i almost walked out on.

    This movie was great, but I really didn't like a lot of the humor in it. I hate funny Hulk, he acts like a baby. Action scenes were great though, and I loved the scene with Doc Strange and Loki

    Thor is not suited for someone like Waititi. Thor is a character that is mythic, epic, poetic, full of bravado and pathos. His comics are in tone with the likes of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, or even Game of Thrones at times (the Garth Ennis miniseries for sure was with all its violence). Waititi made a funny movie, but he did that with a wrong character. Waititi should be given characters that are inherently comedic, instead of turning serious into comedic.

    Immigrant Song stole the movie! Fight scenes were amazing because of it. The second viewing is not as much enjoyable though. The elements of surprise were gone.

    Okay everyone, think about this if even just for a second....
    In Thor Ragnarok, Odin states while being in Norway and looking to the horizon with both his sons, 21:37 "remember this place, home". Now what if moving forward into the next phase of the MCU, ASGARD gets built above NORWAY instead of Oklahoma like in the comics just because of Hollywood's sake. Anyone agree?

    I agree with the fact that there were one too many jokes. I think the one that stuck out to me most is when Korg was talking about the foundation of Asgard holding up and it just decimating. There hardly a pause and then he's like, whoops nope, the foundations are gone. Like could the movie not take a moment of silence for reflection? I know it's a comedic movie but damn.
    Let's pretend Asgard is Earth. A small portion of Earth's surviving and or scattered people just got off the planet in the nick of time. Then those survivors watch it explode. -insert humourous joke here-
    All jokes aside, this movie is crazy dark when you go over it. Thor loses: Mjolnir, Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, Odin, a huge portion of his population, and all of Asgard.

    This movie was a parody of itself. How can you not notice the tonal discrepancy?? I would rather watch the dark world even though I hated it. At least the dark world respected its source material. You found humor annoying because you laughed so much that you needed a break?????? WHAT A LOAD OF SHIT!!!!!

    This movie is damn near perfect. I love to hear that some of it was improvised. I don’t know why anyone would be against that. First of all the movie has a script, they always act and say the lines that are written. Secondly some of the greatest movie scenes ever have an actor that improvised in it. The actors don’t write the movie. The actor might come up with something that the writers never even thought of which might work better. So I don’t see the problem.

    I disagree. The movie was utter shite coated in a thick layer of humor to cover up the lackluster center. My main complaint is that Thor was depicted as weak and impotent that it annoyed me. If it wasn't for the few moments of action then I would have forgotten that he was supposed to be a great god of strength and power. From being caught in a net like a dog by a dogcatcher to being rendered a laughingstock whenever the Valkyrie shocked/ immobilized him, Thor is completely stripped of any dignity, status, and strength. Its almost as if he was being shamed and degraded on purpose with the intent to make him into a joke of a character. I couldn't take him, or the movie, seriously after that farce.
    Thor should have wiped the floor with everyone; from the ruler of that junk planet to that Valkyrie. With "Ragnarok" tacked on the title I thought the movie was going to be an epic where Thor and the warriors of Asgard waged a futile battle to stave off the inevitable doom of their world. Perhaps the director should've added " comedy adventure of Thor on holiday " to have prevented misunderstandings from happening.

    I didn't enjoy ANY Thor film in the MCU, the only thing I enjoyed, was when he was serious, but usually when he was serious, he'd just turn incredibly clumsy at least 5 seconds after! So there are jokes, but none of the jokes actually tickle my funny bone, mainly because Thor is a shocking clown in these films! He's nothing like that in the comics, and that's how I thought it would be, but I was wrong

    Nicolas O'Brien 8 months ago

    I know people are gonna hate me for saying this, but, this is the movie that made me hate big budget movies. The reason: jokes. Marvel is supposed to be action and sci fi. But ragnarok came out, and it ruined it. Anytime something epic is about to happen, dumb joke, any cool battle, dumb jokes. I really want hollywood to try to make an awesome movie and clever jokes, not horrible ones said every 5 seconds.

    I'm going to have to disagree. This movie was superficially good, but an hour after watching and piecing the story line, the characters and all of their history of character development...and the force-fed comedy...this was nothing but a let down. No blood, no realism, no way to immerse. They've done better, but that's not saying much. Much as well be rated G and have Disney's logo slapped over it and just rip the bandaid off.

  • Danny Bailey

    Finally saw this movie... I normally agree with you and highly respect your reviews and recommendations.
    That being said, what I hate about this movie is the “comedy”. It’s way to cheap, obvious, and tension destroying. I can’t think of a scene when there wasn’t a joke and because of that, I couldn’t buy into the whole Thor is in danger. And it’s not even unique comedy. It’s standard, run-at-the-mill Marvel comedy and at some point they’ll have to address his problem.
    I honestly can’t think of a reason to justify your decision to call it an A because that means you are putting it on the same pedestal as Tobey Maguire’s spiderman 1 and 2, and the Dark Knight trilogy. While the Dark Knight series was dark and very serious, the Spider-Man series knew when to be funny but knew when to be serious. Thor threw comedy in scenes when it should be serious.
    I feel the problem lies in the improve. Because it felt very clunky and very forced. The very best I could see this movie being is a B
