Just saw it… wasn’t nearly as comedic as everyone says… then again we were 2 or 3 in the whole theater, so yeah, it was pretty silent. There were a lot of gags, sure, but it wasn’t a “comedy” per-se at all. I think people won’t feel the comedy that much when it comes to DVD and they watch it at home…
Anyways, yeah it’s good… too short though, you could see moment where some scenes were clearly missing. This is one movie I would’ve loved to be longer, but oh well.
Other than that to repeat: The visual design is amazing… lots of kirby shit, and crazy shit all over the place… LOVED IT! I would watch another Thor trilogy if they decided to go that route, easy peasy… that was Cosmic Marvel in full swing and it was glorious!!! Too bad they decided to leave Thor where they did, it makes me think they’re getting ready to “retire” him (and Hemsworth), although I did appreciate the balls to maim him and obliterate Asgard (That’s a much better way to “raise the stakes” than flat out killing the characters… quicksilver… u_u). Hela was cool, but a bit too one-sided unfortunately. Skurge was nice, but same deal. I guess they were just there to service the heros’ arcs, as usual. Damn they better get Thanos right… u_u
There were some flaws of course, like hoe they unceremniously killed the warriors 3 like chumps, no sign of Sif… it all kinda seemed to go too quickly, but sort of dragged in the Sakar section. Korg was amazing, obviously… not too much, not too little. Like someone else said, I’m not sure making Thor into Odin 2.0 is the best direction for the character at this point… I would’ve prefered them to leave it open for more cosmic insane adventures, but I guess Hemsworth’s gotta go at some point =(
Oh my other gripe… fuckin’ Stan Lee… I swear… it stings less with the Watcher connection, but I swear I’m sooo sick of those tired and lame cameos. The rest of the cameos were good.
Well, at least it was different and still managed to deliver on the movie title, which was good. Marvel REALLY needs to ramp up the cosmic whckiness… I think it’s time for Nova & Adam Warlock… And damn you Fox for owning the SS rights
Edit: This was, btw, what I was expecting from GotG2… This kind of thing, not Quill & his daddy issues… so to me this was the true GotG2 I suppose =P
Oh btw, which post-credit scenes did I miss? I only saw the first one with a huge ship appearing in front of theirs, and then I got up to pee and bail cause it was late =P
