Thor Ragnarok script? :giggle: :snort: :guffaw:

I, like GeekTyrant, am not entirely certain that I believe this story:

According to [Director Taika Waititi], 80 percent of Thor: Ragnarok was improvised, or ad-libbed.

“My style of working is I’ll often be behind the camera, or right next to the camera yelling words at people, like, ‘Say this, say this! Say it this way!'” he said. “I’ll straight-up give Anthony Hopkins a line reading. I don’t care.”

Saw Thor in 3D. Thumb’s-up.

Oh, the sticker shock of the movie in 3D was considerable – but what the heck, I got out of the house for a couple of hours.  It’s one of those movies that takes full advantage of the fact that you probably know the basic details about the character already; the character arc probably would have been better suited for a television miniseries, but they got away with it.

Loki was suitably complex in his motivations.

The 3D was not obtrusive.

Go ahead and see this one: I liked it.  Not as good as Iron Man, but about as good as Iron Man 2.  And I liked Iron Man 2.

New Thor Trailer.

Which makes it look less… problematical.

It might even not suck, contra my earlier reaction.  I’ve noticed this happening before: first trailer makes me think that the movie will suck, second or third trailer maybe convinces me otherwise, movie turns out fine.  You’d think that they’d just do good trailers from the start and be done with it.

Also: Ace (H/T, by the way) is infuriated with The Adjustment Bureau over its lie of a trailer, and I can’t blame him in the slightest.

The Thor trailer. And God help us.

I was going to shake a finger at Allahpundit a little for being dismissive of the concept.  Then I watched the trailer.

(pause)

Yeah, that’s going to suck.
