|03.03.18||Internet|| Another Marvel movie down. Everyone's going on and on about how great Black Panther is... I'm getting to catch up with this Thor movie. You know... this is like the 17th Marvel MCU movie and there's been a lot of talk about how the connectivity is what's setting them apart and how DC can't catch a break and everything... but I think this movie proves a sub-point about how Marvel can dominate, and that is the movies are pretty good! They wouldn't be able to make 20 of these if they were all trash. This movie finds a comedic tone that feels like a breath of fresh air in the up-til-now stodgy Asgard Thor-movie setting. Chris Hemsworth has natural comedy chops, the script was great and most of the roles are populated with solid actors who can be funny and dramatic. Blanchett's great but so is Ruffalo, yet the movie still feels like it belongs to Thor (unlike Civil War). One weak note is Karl Urban's role... I like Urban as an actor but his part felt like one too many elements stuffed into the film. I get why he's there for the most part, but Blanchett could've talked to the dog instead. It was pretty rough seeing Thor's other buddies for such little screen time though.|
So...yeah, by far the best Thor movie, up there for all the marvel movies... I wonder if I could even rank a top 5 at this point? hmm... ok. So I haven't seen Black Panther and Infinity War's not out yet.
1. Iron Man
2. Guardians 1
3. Spider-Man: Homecoming
4. Thor: Ragnarok
5. Civil War
I don't know if Spider-Man counts... but notice how 3 of the 5 of those are in the past few years. They're making good movies... which i guess is good because it seems like 40% of all movies that are coming out these days are comic book films...
