That's dissapointing.  Natalie is nice eye candy and I think a pretty decent actress, but I'm not sure that she takes big action flicks (alla Star Wars) very seriously and the results are pretty obvious on screen.  Maybe it was just Lucas and a lack of direction - here's hoping we get the "Where the Heart is" version instead of a Star Wars clone.

Given every other actor in the prequels was awful, I think the blame there falls on Lucas.   ;)

I thought Ewan's acting in AOTC fell pretty flat.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, the prequels could've been 100 times better with a decent director and a script writing team.

Honestly, I think it looks pretty good.  Having never seen Flash Gordon, I can't comment on that.  But what little I have seen of Flash... goofy blonde guy in a shirt that says "Flash"... I'd say the production values here are far superior.  I like Loki's armor and helmet.

The production values of the 1980 Flash Gordon really can't be criticized.  Considering when that movie was made, the production values were waaaaay ahead of their time.  In a lot of ways, they hold up far better than those of many other Sci Fi movies.

It's pretty campy, and not for everyone, but you should totally watch it.

As far as Thor...Loki looks great.

Yeah, that's it.  Sorry, that's just the origin version I remembered so obviously not the same here.

I don't have the old Journey Into Mystery comic, but I believe Donald Blake was a doctor with a lame leg.  The story is something along the lines of Thor being banished to Midgard (Earth) and I vaguely recall him being trapped in Ice or something.  Blake finds him or rather the stick I think and uses it as a cane.  When the stick is slammed to the ground it turns into the Hammer.  Blake goes off into some void and Thor appears.  Likewise, when Thor is done fighting off baddies, he strikes the hammer to the ground.  Blake and the stick return, Thor and the Hammer are back in the void.  It's very similar to the Hulk concept when you think about it.  The early comics also introduced the idea that if the hammer was away from Thor for more than 60 seconds he would return to being Blake, but who knows how much (if any) of this they will keep in the movie. 

Since they already have Thor's hammer alla IM2, I'm betting they go with the sword-in-the-stone bit.  It was said that no one but Thor could ever lift the hammer except in times of great need (a handful of marvel U characters have used the hammer when Thor was incapacitated).  I bet they have trouble lifting it and somehow Blake is the one to do it.

I'm not a huge fan of Thor in Marvel comics, but as he related to the latest round of Asgardian action in Siege, I loved most of those books.

I'm not sure what to think yet.  The trailer does have some pretty cool stuff, but it is a little...different...than what we're used to I guess with comic book movies.  It will be interesting to see how a movie like this does.  Although I do like Thor, I can't say that I've really read a lot of his individual stories but more so the Avengers team stuff (or event stuff).  I've read some of the somewhat recent JMS run on the character, but as far as older stuff goes, not really.  I do hope it turns out well though.

Yeah, I really like that whole "shared universe" thing as well.  The only thing that bugs me about it is I really wish characters like Spidey, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four could be included as well - but the fact that they are licensed out to other studios (Sony, Fox) means they can't be.  I mean, how cool would it be to have cameos like that in each other's movies?  Especially since the majority of the MU is based in NYC.

I hope that WB/DC tries to build the same type of "shared universe" with their movies as well, although sometimes it doesn't sound like they care about that.  Nolan's Batman is obviously a thing all its own, but his possible future Superman sounds like it may be as well.  We'll see if there is anything included in Green Lantern, but having Amanda Waller in the cast of characters might mean there is something there.  I mean, if done well, just think how cool it would be if they took the "Marvel approach" and built towards a Justice League movie.  That, at least if done reasonably well, would be huge.  There is so much buzz with the Avengers already, and I think the JLA probably has a lot more recognition among "non-fans".  The only thing is, I imagine they would have to have a new Batman - but I'm not all that sure that Nolan/Bale's Batman would really fit into a JLA movie very well.  The individual franchise is great, but it is tougher picturing Bale growling his Batman voice at the other JLA members.  Anyways...back to Thor....:)
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: BillCable on July 30, 2010, 11:58 AM
DC is a licensing nightmare.  Too many creators and studios own too many different rights.  It's a wonder they get anything at all on TV or the big screen.  For Smallville on TV they can't show Superman's costume or even call him "Superman" because the rights are held by a different entity than owns "Clark Kent" and "Smallville."

I've heard that Marvel Studios is trying to collect back all their properties as the agreements with other studios expire.  I know the Punisher recently reverted.  I think Fantastic Four is likely to revert soon.  But with Spider-man and X-men I'm thinking Sony and Fox are going to continue to pay out huge licensing fees to keep their claws in them.

Interesting...I always figured that the costume and name was something that they were saving until the end when Clark truly became Superman.  I guess it will just end with him being the blur in the black shirt with the logo.

As far as Bats goes, odds are he'll get another reboot after Nolan's 3rd installment, so maybe they can do something with that version. As far as I'm concerned though, they shouldn't even bother with a Justice League movie unless they can at least get the big 3 involved. Supes, Bats and Wonder Woman are a must. Wierd about all the licensing stuff though, I thought WB owned most of em since they always appear under that banner. Are the rules different with animation or somthing? There seems to be no trouble mixing characters together in animated form.
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: BillCable on July 30, 2010, 01:50 PM
There are TV rights, movie rights, video game rights.  WB might own the rights to JLA for animation.  I know they couldn't use the team name "JLA" in Smallville because of rights issues, so they called them "JSA" which I guess was another DC team.  I also read how the estates of some character creators have sued DC and won the rights to various characters.  It's truly insane.
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: Greedo The Green Menace on July 30, 2010, 01:58 PM
Sounds like a nightmare for the legal departments. I guess it'll be something of a miracle if it ever happens, which is a shame. I wonder what the creators of these characters would say about it all, would they be all for seeing them on the big screen together? Would they want a crap load of money for it or it's a no go? Or would they even care one way or another?
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: BillCable on July 30, 2010, 02:06 PM
I know that DC really took advantage of a bunch of artists and writers in their early days, particularly the guys who made Superman, just because of how copyright was set up back then.  They might not be all that upset to see their heirs fights for some piece of the pie.
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: Brian on July 30, 2010, 04:26 PM
Yeah, as far as the JLA goes, if they can't use all the "big guns" in one movie - I don't know if I'd be interested either.  I want the "Big 3" of Bats, Supes, and WW - as well as the Flash, Green Lantern, and hopefully characters like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.  The "Big 7" if you will....I agree though, if there is a Batman included, it will likely be a new one.  From the sounds of things, Nolan (and likely Bale) will be done with the character once their trilogy is complete (in 2012), and then we'll probably see a reboot.

I know they're negotiating with the rights holders for a closing shot of him in the real costume to finish the series.  So far they haven't agreed to terms, from what I've heard.

A dream sequence?

Yeah, as far as the JLA goes, if they can't use all the "big guns" in one movie - I don't know if I'd be interested either.  I want the "Big 3" of Bats, Supes, and WW - as well as the Flash, Green Lantern, and hopefully characters like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.  The "Big 7" if you will....I agree though, if there is a Batman included, it will likely be a new one.  From the sounds of things, Nolan (and likely Bale) will be done with the character once their trilogy is complete (in 2012), and then we'll probably see a reboot.

I want to see the made up for the old cartoon characters like Apache Chief and Black Vulcan.

I love that the Universe is combined with Thor and the Avengers cast.  If Spidey can't be in this universe, I would be happy if they put Spidey and the FF in the same Universe.  Seems like that would work too. It could get us a more appropriate symbiote story.

Apropos of nothing, if the Kiss classic "God of Thunder" is not on the soundtrack to this film, there should be an official investigation by the Justice Department.

How can you have a movie about Thor and not roll that out during the closing credits? I don't see a way.

That was sort of what I was thinking when I left the theater... these comic book movies can be really good like Iron man or inexplicably bad like Fantastic Four or the first Hulk.  It's all about the tone and direction I think.  Thor was on the better side of that scale.

Apparently that thing at the end is supposed to be the Cosmic Cube.  In the Marvel Universe, this is a devise that can essentially alter reality (think a modern version of a genie in a lamp).  Loki inadvertantly first brought the Avengers together in the comics, so sounds like they're keeping that aspect, but incorporating the CC as well.  I don't know where it came from, but the cube was tied to a creature called the Super Adaptoid at one point - a creature that could mimic the abilities of anything it saw.  He was one of my favorite baddies as a kid, so I hope this is a sign that they're bringing him into the movie.

Saw the movie earlier this week.  All in all, it was pretty good.  Thor has to be one of the single most difficult characters to cast because of both the physicality of the character and his mythological background.  How do you cast a norse god?  But I think Chris Hemsworth pulled it off. 

Natalie Portman?  Mmmm.  She's like a fine wine, just getting better with age!

I thought I had a good idea of where the easter egg scene was going, but now I'm not so sure.  I could've sworn that the name of Stellan Skarsgaard's character was the name of a pretty significant Marvel villain (Avengers, FF, Secret Wars, etc).  But the whole CC story might run counter to that.

Saw Thor Friday night with my friends Joe K and T.J. (Bill and Jesse know them).  Really liked it.  Saw it in 3D IMAX and it looked really crisp and clear. I loved the way they did Asgard.  Looked as good as or better than Coruscant from the SW films.

The plot was decent, and I loved the cameos.  Hemsworth did a great job, IMO, and I still can't get over how huge he got to play that role.  I liked Portman in this film...way better chemistry than between her and Hayden in the SW films.  I thought they kind of wasted Kat Dennings, though.  She's a good actress and it didn't feel like she had much to work with.

I wasn't sure how I was going to like this, was more looking forward to Captain America, but thought Thor really stepped up.  Now I'm hoping CA can follow.

Saw it Friday night, but I had to go to 2 different theatres to find a non-3D showing. (Damn I am sick of that crude, sucky 3D crap...just give it up already, please)

Thought it was good, a solid summer movie effort. If you don't overthink it too much, it's a pretty fun ride. I'm not so much of a Thor purist that I was horribly offended by any of the plot changes. I did want to see that winged helmet though.

Thought Loki came off as much more of a sympathetic villain than the mustache twirling arch enemy from the comics. Was actually kind of refreshing to have a villain with some depth.

Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: McMetal on May 17, 2011, 10:44 AM
LOL...it's just an expression. A reference to the old B/W silent movie villains, who always bore a trademark sinister mustache they would invariably stroke or twirl malevolently.

Loki in the comics was always clean shaven as I recall, but then again, so was Thor and somehow that got lost in the movie.
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: JediJman on May 17, 2011, 05:32 PM
I get the reference, just thought you were being more literal with your comment.  I never really thought of Loki as that kind of villian.  He's definitely a plotter, but has always been portrayed as somewhat feable and whiney in the stories I've read, gaining people's sympathy and then preying on them.  I haven't seen the movie yet, but I have read a lot of Thor, so it will be fun to see how well the characters fit with my expectations.

As for Thor, he did actually sport a scruffy beard for a while in the comics.  He was using it to hide injuries, but it was a cool look for him.  Ultimates Thor also sports a beard and we know that some of the movie characters more closely resemble the Ultimates version of their character (i.e. Sam Jackson as Nick Fury instead of David Hasslehoff).

No?  Maybe?  I wouldn't be surprised that there are some inside jokes in the Avengers that you'll get if you've seen the previous movies.  But why wouldn't you watch them anyway?  Two excellent Iron Man films, Thor was really good and Captain America, hopefully, will be just as good. 

Hulk?  Well...I don't know if you'll need to see either film since neither actor that played Banner will be in the Avengers.  But I'd watch the film with Norton in it just in case.

Pre-Avengers Movies:
 - Iron Man I
 - Iron Man II
 - Thor
 - Captain America
 - Hulk

I finally caught Thor last night and thought it was great.  I think you'd like it if you liked Iron Man, Mike.  Not the same film, but in the same vein of Iron Man and the first Transformers movie (lots of action, a pretty good plot, sprinkled with some humor throughout).  The Norse Gods are masters of advanced tech and sorcery, so it's more sci-fi than Viking dude swinging his hammer around.  If you see it, hang around after the credits for the Easter Egg scene (prelude to the Avengers movie I think).

Patty Jenkins to direct Thor 2 (http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/09/22/monster-director-patty-jenkins-considered-for-thor-2-breaking/)?  Maybe.

I've never seen "Monster" but I saw The Killing and it was good.  I wasn't blown away by Branagh's Thor so I'm not going to cry over a different director.  Plus, it's not like Favreau had any action/adventure/comic directing under his belt when he blew up with "Iron Man," so it may be good to pick a director that has potential to bring a new attitude to this type of film.

+1  I'm glad they have Loki in, but not the main baddie.  I loved the older Thor comics where they bothered to at least still show cameos of key characters.  We should get an update on Loki, but don't want to see a lot of him again in this next film.

Tom Hiddleston is HUGE with the ladies.  Sploosh factor 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.  No way were they going to put out a Thor movie without him.

Wow.  Tom Hiddleston got into character and costume to introduce the Thor - The Dark World (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sYVSEuABPQ) panel?  Looks like a case of an actor appreciating what a comic book movie can do for their career.

There's no Tom Hiddleston; he really is Loki.

There's something to be said for not killing off a comic book movie villain too soon.

Post by: Nicklab on August 7, 2013, 07:55 PM
Very cool as trailers go.  I'm glad to see that Loki is still in the mix.  In the movies thus far, the relationship between Thor and Loki has helped both characters immensely.  And I think Alan Taylor was a good choice for a director this time around.  Kenneth Branaugh did a good job with establishing the characters in the first film.  But Taylor's experience on Game of Thrones has shown that he can work well in an immersive fantasy type of genre and give it a sense of realism that sucks in the audience.

But the question remains:  will the audience buy "Chuck" as the new Fandral?  ;)

We went today...I'll give it a solid 7 out of 10.  I heard going into it that the humor was what carried this one and I just didn't see it or think anything was that funny.  The effects were awesome, loved the design of the Dark Elves.   I have never been a huge fan of Thor, nothing against the guy or the character.  The extended trailer to Cap was probably my favorite part of the day

Just got out if the theater, enjoyed it more than the first one. The mid credits scene has me completely pumped. Completely sick and awesome what they are leading up to!
Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: Nicklab on November 12, 2013, 07:47 AM
I caught the movie last night.

The extended Cap trailer was indeed VERY cool to check out.  I was actually very surprised to see just how much of that elevator fight scene was included.  And it really illustrated that Cap is more than just some guy who's in amazing physical condition.  It was nice to see some of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, too.  But I'm left wondering about Crossbones, who is also supposed to be in the movie.

As for Thor - The Dark World?  Very cool, but clearly significantly different in tone from the first film.  I attribute that a lot to the change in directors.  With Kenneth Branagh directing the first film, there was an element of Shakespearean tragedy to that film.  Evidently, Branagh had been briefly signed on to direct the sequel but left several months into the development of the second film.  I'm glad for the change because I think director Alan Taylor really managed to capture the dark tone incredibly well.  And from a character standpoint he was able to build on the characters of the first film by giving them all more of a brooding depth that had been lacking from the first movie.

Visually, I thought the movie was stunning.  The Dark World of Svartalfheim really lived up to the billing.  I think that Iceland was the perfect location to capture that stark reality, and it showed how a real location can help so much in setting a scene.  Taylor also managed to expand on Asgard from a visual standpoint without getting too showy.

From a story standpoint?  I think that Taylor managed to establish a very real sense of danger and jeopardy with this story.  And doing that draws the viewer in and makes them care about the characters.  I got that with this film.

The mid-credits scene was great!  The Infinity Stones are going to be a cool story arc that I think Marvel Studios is going to take their time to develop.  And Benecio del Toro as The Collector?  I never saw that coming!!!

Crossbones was one of the guys in the elevator (the last one Cap beat).  I don't know if he'll don the mask though.

As for Thor, loved it.  As usual, Loki stole the show.  Loved the Asgard scenes.  I wish we could have seen more of the worlds and different aliens while the portal jumping was going on at the end.

And I hope Jaime Alexander becomes Wonder Woman, if only to see her wearing less than what she wore to the premier of Thor:TDW.

We went this past weekend as well, and I really enjoyed it as well.  Although I'm sure that many general audience members were thoroughly confused by the post credits sequence, I personally can't wait for Guardians of the Galaxy next year.  Honestly, I didn't know all that much about the comic/team/etc. until the past couple years, then I started reading and got hooked.  I'm really anticipating all of the Marvel movies next year with Cap, Spidey, X-Men and Guardians all hitting...should be a good year.

The Cap footage, wow I can't wait for that movie.  I keep watching the trailer over and over lately as well, just really looking forward to it.  Overall though for Thor: The Dark World, good stuff.  Honestly, although some are weaker than others, I can't say I've disliked any of the Marvel Studios movies since all of this started with the original Iron Man.  They aren't all perfect, but all very watchable I think.

Saw the 3D showing last night on a whim and was not at all disappointed. I enjoyed it, except for the little swerve at the end, which I guess I should have expected.

If they do end up doing a third movie they have to bring in Hela. Hopefully the writers are aware he fought other foes besides Loki.

Details are starting to emerge about Thor - Ragnarok.  Among them?  There's a director.  And the Hulk is going to play into the story, too (http://www.ew.com/article/2015/10/15/mark-ruffalo-will-bring-hulk-thor-ragnarok).

The director will be Taika Waititi, a New Zealander who you may have seen in Green Lantern as Hal Jordan's nerdy friend.  The movie is set to hit theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.  And word has it that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner / The Hulk for this film.  Tom Hiddleston is also confirmed to be returning as Loki.  And this movie will be linked to the visions that Thor had in the cave during Avengers - Age of Ultron.

Some more news on the cast (https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/05/marvel-confirms-cast-of-thor-ragnarok.html?utm_source=PMNL&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=160520) for Thor - Ragnarok.  Marvel Studios has officially announced these cast members:

In the film, Cate Blanchett will act as Hela, Jeff Goldblum will play the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will take the role of Valkyrie, Karl Urban will be Skurge and Mark Ruffalo will act as Bruce Banner/the Hulk.  They will be joining returning Thor actors Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Sir Anthony Hopkins.  I'm pleasantly surprised to see actors like Cate Blanchett and Jeff Goldblum added to the mix.  This could be really, really good!

The Jeff Goldblum casting blows my mind.  The Grandmaster is such an out-there crazy character, it'll be interesting to see what they do with him.

Check out the Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7MGUNV8MxU).  This looks like a distinct evolution in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where they may be some potential for crossover with Guardians of the Galaxy.  Cate Blanchett looks bad@$$ as Hela!  I'm also amazed that they got the rights to use a Led Zeppelin song in an MCU movie, too.  Fitting that it would be "Immigrant Song"!

Oh, and who's that at the end?

I've never been particularly attracted to Cate Blanchett (she's not ugly per se, but she's not Kate Beckinsale or Evangeline Lily to me), but there's something about her as Hela that's making me feel naughty in the pants.  >:D

I'd love to see a cameo from the Guardians sitting in the stands during the gladiator fight.

Saw it last night.  Definitely a fun ride with a lot of memorable lines.  It "felt" more like a Guardians movie than the previous two Thor films for sure.  Not just the comedic aspects, but even the look and use of music.  At one point in the beginning I felt like I was watching a TV show with how it was shot.

With everything that was going on, going to have to see it at least one more time on the big screen to catch all the Easter Eggs.

Goldblum and Blanchett didn't disappoint.

Post by: JediJman on November 5, 2017, 11:45 PM
Saw Thor 3 over the weekend and it was pretty good.  I think if there weren't so many other great Marvel movies, I would have liked this even more.  The story and visuals were great, but I agree that it didn't really feel like a "Thor" movie to me.  The past two movies seemed more serious or somber to me, whereas this was a lot of joking and physical comedy with Thor and Hulk.  I laughed a lot, but it does have more of a Guardians feel to it.  Given some of the deaths involved, I would not have expected Thor to be goofing around and cracking jokes.  I would have liked more set up on what happened between Loki and Odin as well.  If Loki just cast a spell on him that led to his demise, it seems like should have been more than a light-hearted footnote.  I wasn't overly impressed with Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie either, but Kate Blanchett was excellent. 

*SPOILER ALERT* - Did anyone else catch Loki eyeing up the cosmic cube?  Guessing he grabbed it off screen, which was maybe for the best given what happens to Asgard.  And the immense ship at the end had to be Thanos, right?

We saw Ragnarok this weekend as well, and really enjoyed it. It is definitely different than the previous movies, but I think that is ok. It isn't a perfect story or anything, but a heck of a lot of fun. I've read before that Hemsworth is really a funny guy, and that came through very well here.

SPOILERS







I was a little surprised how many characters were killed off (and quickly). I know it has and does happen in comics all the time, with resurrections, but not sure if that will happen here. I think it has been confirmed that the ship in the credits is indeed Sanctuary, Thanos' ride.

Saw it today in a mostly empty theater (best way!), Ragnarok is the best Thor and Hulk movie in one!  I admit, I was never a Thor fan, though. The first two films were mostly forgettable.

Title: Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)
Post by: Nicklab on November 22, 2017, 08:47 AM
I saw it on Monday.  I think it was an interesting way to move Thor's character forward.  The scene with Dr. Strange was well done, and tied in very well with the end credits scene from the Dr. Strange movie.  And Tom Hiddleston playing that up with the line about falling for 30 minues was great!

The inclusion of the Hulk in the story was a nice way to pick up his story from the end of Avengers - Age of Ultron, and I really liked the tie-in with the Quinjet's log where Black Widow tried to talk Hulk into transforming back into Banner.  The humor between them seemed pretty genuine, between Thor and Banner talking about their fight... per Thor's recollection.  And then Thor calling Hulk a moron for fighting Surtur?  That actually elicited a gut laugh from me!

Cate Blanchett was fantastic as Hela.  I think she was reasonably well developed as a villain.  Her presence alone was pretty amazing.  And she dispatched the Warriors Three pretty fast.  Her story having been intertwined with that of Odin certainly gave Thor a lot to think about in his path forward.

I've seen some people describe the humor as broad.  I don't know that I'd agree with that assessment.  I certainly found it to be enjoyable, and I think that the Sakar angle played up the fact that Asgard was part of a larger interstellar landscape.  And that, along with Loki's actions in the weapons vault, will seemingly tie into where the MCU will be going with the next Avengers film.

I just got back and thought it was by far the best Thor movie, which isn't really saying much I guess but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The cast was pretty great throughout. Although I normally like him, I thought Karl Urban was a little weak though - the accent didn't help.

I kept thinking..."man, I really like the background music"...then I saw Mark Mothersbaugh credited at the end and I realized why.  :)
