First off, SPOILER ALERT! This thread is FULL of spoilers from the third Thor movie-threrefore precede with your own caution, as im not responsible for spoiling it for anyone who has not seen it yet.

 

Second, admins, this is not a thread to cause unrest in the forums-it is a discussion page. (i said on a previous thread i would post this btw )(its not like the previous threads posted by others last week)

 

 

Third, let me begin!

 

Ok, so...first, Thor Ragnarok was NOT ORGINAL from the comics, as the first two previous Thors were. Its new director took a different turn and thats where Marvel went wrong. Why it wasnt orginal? let me give  an entire list of scenes where Marvel took from other movies....(please feel free to comment if you see any other movies scenes taken from other movies)

 

Star Wars- hmm well, at the beginning when Thor got captured by a bunch of alien dessert  looking people who threw a net over him  and was going to be dragged off....sound familar? BB8 gets captured my a net by a group of desert aliens...

 

Willy Wonka- im pretty sure everyone caught that. The willy wonka music along with the wild ( Marvel twisted it into something dark btw) ride on the chair Thor was sitting in...exactly the same scene from  the wild boat ride in Willy Wonka.

 

 

 Some mummy movies (i say some because i havent watched any, but i had a friend tell me the simularity so...)- resericting the .d.e.a.d- sounds too much like the typical ancient egypt mummy thing.

 

 

Moses (story and movies)- so we have Heimdall and the Asgardian people, who sorta look like Israelites, being hunted down by He.lla- moving from place to place to escape her. The key scene is when they start crossing the long bi-frost bridge just above the ocean to get to safety-following them in are h.ella and her warrior group. They obviosely took that from the scenes where Moses and his people are trying to escape pharaoh and his mens grasp-eventually God parted the waters and Moses and the Israelites crossed a long path to safety.

 

 

Moana- come on! too obvious Marvel, too obvious. A giant-lava monter ( that looked very simular to the one in Moana) : O that was unleashed and strated destroying Asgard at the end other movie!  Technicaly, the only difference between those two scenes in Moana and Thor was that the lava monster succeded in destroying  Asgard.

 

 

Star Trek- the scene where someone in Thor says " Where to now, captain?" on Asgards new spaceship.......Someon asks captain Kirk the same thing in Star Trek. 

 

 

 

Besides taking from other movies, marvels Thor Ragnarok was just "not a Thor movie."

 

melodic, beat.ing  classical mussic  that fit extremely well with the previous Thor movies- changed to "space junkie"  and video-game music.

 

The envirement that quite a few scenes of thor ragnarok took took place in was literally like a gaming world- it doesnt have to be the Asgardian or earth placing (as seen in the two other thor movies). but im not sure it fit with the Thor franchiese.

 

im not sure Skurg with the two g.uns (from America ) slamming down the enemys was a good scene.  not in Thor especially.

 

The characters were pretty much thier usual- selves, except they acted more like the characters from Guardians of the Galaxy than in other thor movies.

 

 

 

The characters that were excluded from the film for really no good reason , WHAT HAPPEND TO JANE, DARCY AND ERIK SELVIK???? AND THE JANExTHOR stuff? Thats kinda was what the other two movies were building on.. Although the actress Natalie Portman refused to play in this movie, they could have animated her in the movie (like star wars did with Leia) or chosen another actress for the spot.  Darcy was a great character to...

 

On the more positive side of things, yes, it was a funny comedy movie and it had good teamwork. If u are happy with it being a comedy, then great! but if your expectations were that of Thor being like the other two (like me) then.....ehhh, you might not like it.

Personality Description of my viking (Hannah)

 

 

 

                                     -She has a good soul, but a dark heart-

 

 

   

                                     She can be quite fierce sometimes (not great if it  is for the wrong reason) but she is understanding and has kindness sowed in her. She runs on pure fury during races (du just a racing method) ...Although she may not always admit  it (and fix it) she will try to make things right when she makes a mistake        ( She can be very distracted sometimes so...).

 

She loves all her dragons very much, as they are as close to her as family and friends- and would go out of harms way to protect them.

 

She absolutly enjoys racing, wandering around the wild areas with her dragons, and flyingn upside down (rules are ment to be broken)

 

Favorite things to eat and drink are cremesoda,  ice-cold water, and apple cider ; wild duck, pinneapple, celery, and anything with bread. Anything with chocolate is her favorite desert.

 

Favorite color- very deep, rich, purple.

 

Favorite places in the world-anywhere with mountains, and trees, and snow etc.

 

and thats all i have to say!

Wolf

 Art done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair viking and  she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is natrually good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet, but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability of being able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion twords humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

...............Lyra

 ..........Art done by Marg The Loony

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She supressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely scarcastic at times, and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and scarcastic attitude twords everything that breaths. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and find their interests. The second reason is because she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show off. The problem is, natrual talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx burried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoffness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

Thor ragnarok is not a

Thor ragnarok is not a perfect movie or anythi flawless, there's something that bugged me off as well, one being the stuff you've said about the characters from the previous movie, i get the censored that they're going for the distruction of the old and rebuilding a new kind of direction, to acompany the falls of asgard story but geez killing off three warriors like they're fodder/not important character of the previous movie is kind of rude and you're right about the human/scientist crew (which i really like) plus Lady Siff, i feel like they've left them out for either not being relate to the story arc they're trying to tell(they might just get in the way so they cut them out entirely for the story to flow better) or that they admit these characters are kind of the low point of the movie(not what people watch this movie for) which may sound harsh because i like them but i can see why people would think that. But yeah they end the second movie with Thor and Jane kissing then they broke up off screen? Kind of a rude move.

I also feel like amoung the bombarment of the joke this movie delever non stop, not all of them work. There're some very funny joke ans some that's just not as funny as they might have want it to be

However the first stuff you said about it not being original is kind of objective, like wolf and star said it was meant to be as easter egg or something so blalant it meant to get people recognize and get a laugh out of it but some of it i don't thing it's even intentional, Moana is not the only story with big bad lava monster. I can find the monster design more. And other stuff that's more like a trope than a reference.

Skurge with two guns is a paid off to the joke they have made early on in the movie about the gun named dis and troy. The contrast between norse armor wearing warriors and present human weapon was intentional, one of the joke that work best in the history of film is the misdirection of the expectation, you are expecting the armored warrior to uses sort? Well now you have gun inatead! The contrast so vast was meant for hilarity

 

All That being said

 

Thor ragnarok is probably one of my favourite movie this year, and probably my favourite thor movie and up there amoug top ten of my favourite mcu movie. I feel like the stepping into the new direction is a breath of flesh air and somehow work very very well, yeah it doesn't feel like thor movie which i think this is why i like it so much.(but please not that i didn't not like the previous thor movie, i like them especially the second one which get a lot of flag but i like ibecause of the comedy and with the third one's comedy being clang up to the top, of course it's going to end up being my  favorite) there's my friend who like the character but never like the previous thor standalone movie then really reay love the third one because of the new direction it takes. Of course that meant the fan of the previous movie who lit for the seriousness and aesthetic will suffer from it. Which is understandable, my other friend who watch it with me hate this movie for its silliness, unfortunately he's kind of being a jerk about it and scolding my other friend en she laugh in the theather.

 

If anything i feel like thor ragnarok is an entertaining mindless movie(okay mindless might be a bit of a strong word becse the plot is seriously good) someing you go to watch to enjoy and take your mind of things without much expectatn and you walk out of the theather all happy and hype up and keep talking about it for days. The comedy is noe only strong suit(but it probably the movie that get laugh out of me the most of this year)  of this movie too, the action and the characters, especially the characters. The developement of bothor and loki is something i really really pleased and the new characters are very likable. Valkyrie, what ever your true name  is, i love you, baby.

Tahno and Her Dragons, The Drake-seven

 

 Tahno: The seemingly mute viking who prefer isolation and dragons over human social, She marked a territory in a cave in a forest and live with her dragons. After her traumatic past, she and Manta the thunderdrum then started exploring, away from civilization and get to know more dragons. She's currently an alpha of a pack of dragons known as the drake six, an ellite dragon that with Tahno's lead would protect the area from all viking and human's harm!

 

      Manta:  Tahno's bestfriend and her main ways of traveling, the Thunderdrum is always seen by her side. Despite being a thunderdrum, Manta does not share the stuborness of his kind and tend to have more of a soft-hearted, loyal and obedience nature but shall protect his rider and willing to do anything for her

 

 

 

      Drain: A Skrill that Tahno saved. As oppose to Manta, Drain tend to be more wild, agreesive and unfriendly towards other, however, he is as loyal and as protective to Tahno as the thunderdrum for their history. The Skrill makes up for Manta lack of hostility and act as their strong arm, willing to do the nasty job for them. The skrill and a thunderdrum also share an unlikely bond and act like they're brothers which make it less worrying for Tahno that they will fight if she chooses to ride one more than the other

   

     Springfill: Springfill is a wild Scauldron who, consequently, lives near where Tahno and her friends hang out. After sometime The rider and the dragons somehow earn his trust and liking, enough for him to, from coming to play with them himself, to protect them from harms and even let Tahno riding him sometimes.

He has been seen following or stay with Tahno more often but for now he's still the only one in the drake-six who has his place in the ocean and not her place and still part of the ellite

 

     Snapjaw: Snapjaw, like Springfill, is an older wild dragon. She attacks Tahno one day in the forest but later Tahno gained her trust and like the scauldron and the skrill, they begin to develope trust. However, unlike Springfill, Snapjaw decided to keep her company around the group as she feel guilty about their first meeting. She is hot-headed and get angry easily but also caring.

 

    Bellblue: Like Root and Manta, Bellblue was found and hatched by Tahno, makes him the second youngest member of the crew. And like most of other Stormcutters, Bellblue tend to be very confident and proudstuck, high on ego, love to taking control but loyal to tahno with no end. Still pretty young, Bellblue is noticable very small compared to fully grown stormcutters.

 

    Bluejay: Sometime Navyjay or just Jay as Tahno likes to call. They first met during the inccident, where Tahno got seperate form her dragons in the wood. There she met a friendly snafflefang and end up spent a lot of quality time together, by then Bluejay wouldn't leave her side! They share a somewhat besty-like friendship. Personality wise, Bluejay is very similar to Manta, soft-heart, and chill and when it comes to lighten the mood in the group up, he is very good at it!
 
    Eggplant: The latest addition the the pack, Eggplant's everyone's baby girl. being rescued by Tahno as a baby. Much like Root in her early years, Eggplant's enthusiastic in proving herself and she's done a great job so far. Because of her age however, she mostly being keep out of any serious missions. She's already swift and brave for her age now however.
 
 
 
 
Others

 

     Northernlight: The old flightmare that mysteriously appears one day and protects Tahno and the gangs from the territorial changwings. Since then she acts as their guardian and follow Tahno everywhere. Her backstories and whereabout is unknow but it might related to the lost of her child or rider, or that she was a netural alpha and have protective instinct or that she's just kind. She is the oldest and undoubtly the most mature. At the present time her ages weakening her that she's no longer suit to be the alpha or in their ellite, but she still gain respect as always and currently spend the rest of her life resting and happy in Tahno's place

     Root: Root's origin is quite similar to Manta's. Tahno found and hatched her, make her the youngest members to this crew, "baby girl" as what Tahno called her time to time. However, despite her love of dragons, Tahno held somewhat grudge against the whispering death species due to her past and even though she tries to be open-minded, she still unintentionally give Root a hard time. Unfortunately, this result in Root distancing herself from the group. And result in her ruthless nature, however, she still love Tahno dearly even when she's no longer in her pack

    The Queen: previously known as Flamebringer, She's not exactly part of the group but she shared a strong bond with Tahno and her dragons. Like Torch, She was found as a hatchling in a hand of the trappers, Tahno resqued her but mistaked as a normal male fireworm due to the size. After sometime together, Tahno decided it is better to return the fireworm to her nest. They later met again when she became the queen of the nest. At first Tahno didn't recognize her but the queen did and she shown her affectionate as gratitute. Unfortunatly being the queen stopped her from spend times with the viking. However, Tahno still come to visit her every so often and if it's really need, the dragon is willingly to come and help.

  Rivercry: Tahno may like and understand dragons, but this poor sandwraith is the example of her miscommunication. The sandwraith happened to be near where she lived and in every trouble she brought, the sandwraith ended up caught in it most of the time. A lot of her action unintentionally made this sandwraith suffering. He likes to complain and never in a good relationship with the group. Ironically, spending his time these troublemaker kinda made them grow to him a bit, or maybe he got used to them, still he won't admit it easily!

 

    Crowl: Somehow this Eruptodron were able to survive faraway from the volcano and still have enough strength to scar away Tahno and her friend upon encounter, Tahno however was so amused by this new dragon that she keep wanting to get close, so much she later discovered that no matter how much this young energetic male hide it, he's dying. With some afford, she able to guide the eruptodron to the nearest volcano and thus all the grudge and hatred was dropped. Crowl's greatful enough to let this girl continue to get too excited when she see him and sometime even let her ride on his back.

A-hem......toothless and dirtpaw what are you doing?

You misread my first post. Im not calling marvel out for breaking copyright laws...its just that one after another "easter eggs" (the ones the director put in) can make the movie jump around alot-when u put that many easter eggs in a movie where all the previous movies were more orginal then...

As i said in previous post, if you like it as a marvel comedy movie,and it makes you laugh, then great! But there are those (as in the entire cannaon of the movie) who did expect it to be more like the other movies.

I highly disagree. The things

I highly disagree. The things you mentioned, as some others already said, were mere easter eggs and despite you not enjoying their addition, the majority of people seem to like them. Also, the "lava monster" has nothing to do with the one in Moana, heck, Surtur had his debut back in 1963 or so, which means there's no way they could copy Moana if he existed first.

While you are right, the first two movies were pretty much original, but that doesn't necessarily make them better. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that they (Dark World mostly) are quite mediocre, or below average, at least compared to the stuff Marvel has produced recently, like Avengers or GOTG. It's also obvious that those are the movies where the inspiration for the newest Thor came from.

So yes, the movie went in a different direction than the previous ones, but in my opinion, that was actually a very smart move. The character development was top notch, and I found the humorous tone to be far better than the "gritty" one in Thor and Thor Dark World. Just throwing in my two cents.

For Asgard!

I agree with realsteel. In my opinion, Thor: Ragnarok was a great movie. But before I write some stuff, I'd just like to point out this is meant as a friendly discussion, and what follows is my own personal opinion :)

 

Okay, so, to start with, Ragnarok was pretty original from the comics. The whole 'gaming planet' thing - Sakaar - was based on the 'Planet Hulk' storyline. The event of Ragnarok itself also appeared in the comics. Pretty much all the characters were original. While the exact storyline might be different, remember that the Avengers movies - in fact, the entire MCU, for that matter - are generally a bit different to the canon storylines of the comics.

 

I don't think it's a big deal that some scenes were 'similar' to other movies. It happens all the time. References and easter eggs are a thing. Take Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, for example - every episode from Season 3 had a (purposeful) Star Wars reference, or something. I would disagree with your Moana point entirely - Surtur, the 'big monster', as Hulk put it, has been around for a long, long time, even out of the comics. He is a key part of Norse mythology, as a fire-demon from Muspelheim, one of the Nine Realms. He is also known as 'the Lord of Ragnarok', so it would make complete sense for him to be in this movie. Also, Disney made Moana. Disney also owns Marvel Studios, who made the Thor films. So they can mix up their movies as much as they like XD and the same goes for Star Wars.

 

The environement wasn't really that different; there was just one new planet, Sakaar, which is canon anyway (Planet Hulk), and it was only about 50% of the movie. The rest was mostly Asgard, with a few scenes on Midgard/Earth - which were hilarious, and conatined a few great references, most notably the Sherlock one. This was a little nod to actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, but also Sherlock Holmes in the BBC TV series (funnily enough, Robert Downey Jr. plays Holmes in the movie versions, too!). Mooooving on, the design of Sakaar was influenced by Jack Kirby, one of the original MARVEL comics creators.

 

As for Jane Foster, it was clearly stated in the Midgard scene that she and Thor had broken up, which (kind of) explains her absence. I also don't think that Marvel Studios could have just 'animated' her in - the reason Lucasfilm did this in Star Wars was that the actor who played Princess Leia had died, and was a lot, lot, older at the time of filming, so she would have looked completely different. In regards to Thor, however, Natalie Portman is still alive, but just doesn't want to be a part of the franchise anymore, so it would be extremely disrespectful of Marvel Studios to use a CGI model of her, rather than hiring her as an actor (not to mention proably illegal and very difficult). It also doesn't make a lot of sense for Erik Selvig or Darcy Lewis to be in the film, as they aren't Asgardians or Sakaarians. 

 

All in all, Ragnarok was, in my opinion anyway, a brilliant movie. Just be glad we didn't get another Batman V Superman! It was intended to be more of a fun, family-friendly film, and yes, a comedy in some parts. New director (or should I say new Kronan XD) means new atmosphere. Taika Waititi directing held a lot of personal value for me, and his cameo as Korg was my favourite part (on a side note, if any of you haven't seen Hunt for the Wilderpeople, I would highly reccomend you go see it, like, right now. There's a couple of great cameos in Thor from that fabulous movie). But in the meantime...

I would like to add to this conversation. I require a two see before I can properly formulate an opinion. When people rave about a movie, there are always high expectations. Nine times out of ten the first see is always a disappointment.

 

First, looking at a movie and finding all the similarities between it and others is not a good way to analyze it. Every movie out there will have many similarities to others. It's not fair, in any sense, to do that to anything in the entertainment industry unless it is full our copyright! The best way to analyse a movie is it's story structure. The characters, plotline, setting, etc. This story followed a Hero's Journey template

 

Second, Thor, in my opinion, is not a terrible movie. It has a great foundation, and changes from the normal rhythme. One could argue that the entire Thor branch is his coming of age story since in the first, he was acting like a child. And now, he's inherited his father's throne. In addition, we see different sides to many of the repeating characters, and witness some amazing character development. Yes, he isn't with Jane anymore, but Jane isn't the main focus of the movies, and the characters are suppose to have lives outside of what we see on film. We don't know what they're doing at the time. But, they may return for Infinity Part 1.

 

Want to know what movie was terrible? The new Pirates of the Carribean. Such a foundationless plotline. "We just me and now I love you" subplot. Too many coincidences. Somewhat boring villain (the hair is cool, as his original story and his ship). And they're over stretching their father theme. There's more but I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it.

 

The only thing I wasn't a fan of was Bruce not having much screen time. Even though this is a Thor movie, I was pumped that Bruce Banner was in it!! However, I almost cried when Hulk, after two years, transformed into Banner after seeing Natasha! :( Poor Banner!

He'd never know. An innocent fifteen year old afraid of dragons. Viggo was never wrong. But it's not like it mattered, because he'd be like everyone else. And nothing would change her mind. (Hiccup x OC; Rated T in case)
