I'm glad someone else feels that way xD for me personally, Ragnarok was a miserable experience. Sure, if you through literally a thousand darts at a board, a couple may bullseye, but a couple may also hit a stray cat and you'll be stuck with its wailing. That was the comedy. The first half is nothing but comedy, and even when the second half starts getting serious, every scene still ends with a joke to take away all tension.Griffith said:Glad you said so because that hits it on the nose, it's trying to Guardianify Thor into something more fun. Which I sort of understood going in, but forgot by the end because while it has all the irreverent space hijinks on its surface, it has none of the pathos so therefore misses the mark. This movie didn't know how and wouldn't dare to be as unapologetically sentimental as the Guardian movies are at heart. That's what made all the other stuff work though and why it doesn't go over as well here (it's copying the worst parts of those movies when the jokes are trying too hard). Anyway, I can't feel the emotion of a moment just because Sir Anthony Hopkins tells me too, especially when everything is seemingly just made up and inevitably undone on the spot.
Then again, I've had Marvel fatigue since Age of Ultron. I did really enjoy Black Panther, and Infinity War looks like it may actually have some teeth.
