Forgot to add how great it was to hear The
Immigrant Song - YouTube
Kudus to Wonder Woman's adrenaline rush theme.
It must've cost SO MUCH.....
when it came on AGAIN, all I could think of was the negotiations, and the Marvel people probably saying,
"If we're paying that much, we're playing it TWICE!!"
Seems odd to think that.
Saw this last night and it was extremely enjoyable. Marvel seems to always cast the right actors in these rolls. Really well done.
Easily the funniest film I've seen all year.
Finally saw this last night and really enjoyed it.
Bring on Black Panther and Infinity War!
If they played it twice, that just makes it cost even more. That's how synchronization licenses are negotiated. Duration of use, popularity of the production, potential for money to be made, etc. When it's released for sale on DVD and BD, they'll need another license put in place, and that won't be a one time payment. That will be per unit sold.
Immigrant Song made the movie - I mean literally not figuratively. I saw an interview with the director where he said that he made a sizzle reel with the song to sell his services (or the film concept - not sure where it was in the process).
Immigrant Song made the movie - I mean figuratively not literally for me. It is my favorite LZ song. It still would have been an enjoyable movie without it.
BTW - I don't often go to theaters to watch movies. I think it was the first time I sat through the credits. I was with my son and most of the theater stayed seated. I'm not sure the wait was worth it - I could probably have seen the extras on youtube later. My main thought was - Holy cow, a lot of people worked on the film.
A very funny comedy, slapstick, wordplay, spoofs; it's all there! Marvel goes Naked Gun!
The downside: the jokes took away all the suspense.
I thought Ragnarok simply felt like they were trying TOO hard resulting in it feeling forced and unnatural. Felt the exact same way about GOTG2. I REALLY didn't like the portrayal of the Hulk in this flick. Considering the majority of the storyline was taken directly from the Hulk's book it was frustrating to watch as the original tale is many things, but one thing it's NOT is funny!
New Doug made me laugh really hard. Jeff Goldblum tore it up. The rest was pretty stupid. Thor and Loki having no clue they had sister who was the goddess of death was eye rolling.
The dual machine gun scene was just sad.
Fun easy going movie! CGI? The Hulk looks awful, always has. The only thing they got looking somewhat believeable is his face. But his body and movements are just bad.
CGI are great for many things. But give me Lou Ferrigno for the Hulk
What happened to BLaCK PanTHer's theme music, almost non existent?
In a Thor film? Hmmmm...I wonder why?
I want to see a Marvel/DC crossover movie where Thor fights Bouncing Boy.
Thor vs Wonder Woman.
I could only watch about 10 minutes of this movie. So Thor is now a comedy? End of this series for me
Overall I enjoyed it though it did get a bit too silly at times. As long as this doesn't become the norm, I'm okay. What I like about the MCU is that, for the most part, they let the film makers put their individual stamps on the films they are making and I think that is important. The Russos turned Winter Soldier into a political thriller. Guardians is kind of goofy but with a big heart and that's because of James Gunn. I guess I am trying to impose the Auteur theory on the MCU.
I'd be okay if they didn't make another Thor movie though. I'm not sure how many more times I need to see Thor and Loki mix it up over the fate of Asgard. The fact that they basically cannibalized a Hulk story for the plot here means they might be running out of ideas for keeping things fresh Thor-wise. You got to know when to walk away...
You are definitely the Rex Reed of the forum.
I'm sorry, but the contemporary comedy just got out of hand. Every Disney film sounds exactly the same!
So what was with the cheesy '70s synth music? An homage to "Buck Rogers in the 25st Century." or "Space Hunter in the Forbidden Zone?" Just weird.
Turns out to be my favorite film of last year. And, it was a very good year for film.
Allowing Chris Hemsworth to display his comedic abilities was a genius move, and very likely gave the series a whole new lease on life!
Hemsworth was very funny in the oft-loathed "Ghostbusters" reboot.
Less so here, IMO, because the humor just doesn't work for the character...
The music was just part of the movie's forced irreverence - a wink-wink, nudge-nudge sense of irony that pervaded the whole project, like the filmmakers wanted to make fun of superhero movies more than anything else...
Now, if only they'd let Edgar Wright be Edgar Wright on "Ant Man".
