Thor: Ragnarock
« on: October 30, 2017, 10:10:00 AM »
Plot holes I discussed with my friends:

1) It is never explained how the Hulk found his way to a space portal with a non-space shuttle.

2) That was a remarkably small amount of people that entered the space ship considering the size of Asgard.

3) Why did Loki change his mind about helping Thor?

I think at that point he knew without the reward money and standing face to face with the rebels that it wasn't great for him to be on Goldblum World, but why he took them to Asguard, I don't entirely know, I guess. Maybe he did feel remorseful, or he was planning to make a play for the throne. Obviously one he got there it was worth it because he got that cube thing, I guess.

I had to see this in 3-D because 2-D was sold out. The scene overlooking the ocean with Odin was really pretty, but largely the 3-D seemed really bad, and I just poked around to see that apparently I wasn't the only person who thought so.

Loki is not against helping his brother, he just changes his mind when it suits him. I more question Valkyrie agreeing to fight. It seems there's some motivation cut out because its not her movie, so the flashback to her people being destroyed by Hela is all spectacle and no emotion and then when she agrees to help it comes with no reasoning, but they cover it up with a clever joke about finding a ship with cup holders.

Man.

This was such a bore.

The mid credits scene was perhaps the laziest one yet?

I was more bored during Wonder Woman.

I'm curious, although I believe this movie to be far superior to WW, what part of the latter did you find boring?

I lost interest for a while; somewhere in the middle, mustard gas, something, something, secret funding, something, something recruiting. :D

Do people not say yadda yadda yadda anymore? I feel like my cultural references need updating.

I felt that the action scenes in WONDER WOMAN were actually exciting but in THOR, you know they’re Gods so there’s no suspense. And they’re regularly given enemies that all look the same and pose no real threat so they’re just there for the heroes to look cool defeating them which makes it even more boring. Why take away Thor’s hammer if he’s just as strong without it? Kinda defeats the purpose of “if you need the hammer to be a super than you’re not a really super in the first place” - which, by the way, is the exact same arc in the first THOR, so I guess Marvel was just pinning their hopes on the audience being okay with ripping it off.

In WONDER WOMAN, you know she will live but there’s actual pathos for her sidekicks which does make it at least a little thrilling.
