It's weird. The physical linking with this l shape between the computer desk area and the sketch desk area has got me sketching with a purpose.A stimulus feng shui I needed.
I enjoyed Thor. It was a fun comic book movie... not dark and brooding.
Thanks Rick. There were people kicking about the Rotten Tomatoes 78 percent Fresh rating. People saying it was pretty dumb and FX only interest. I agreed with the consensus "bad" rating of the new Clash Of The Titans. I'll certainly give Thor a chance in about 3 months.
Thor was fun. I had a good time. I wasn't particularly interested in seeing it initially, but I think all parties involved turned in a solid piece of entertainment and did a good job of moving the comic to screen. It couldn't have been easy trying to boil all the cosmic stuff into something that made sense to a more casual audience, but they managed to do it without making the source material completely unrecognizable.
Thanks Ronnie. I do think it had to be challenging with the demand that it be Avengers compatible.
I was very disappointed in Thor. They turned Bifrost into a Boom Tube and made that the crux of the whole movie. The Kirby estate and DC should sue. After the money was blown on Asgard the rest of the movie was shot on a two set backlot and a dusty desert. The whole scope of the thing was too narrow.
I'm ready to react like Ben as readily as Rick or Ronnie's reaction.Netflix is a big plus for environment. DVD extras will also be part of the experience.I tell you, a big, flat TV, decent sound, the ability to pause and rewind.... just beats the heck out of having some psycho that never stops texting with his "flashlight" or someone eating the newest crispy snack somewhere behind your ea.
Or, behind your ear.
I will admit "Thor" could have been much more than it was but I went in with fairly low expectations. I was totally cold to the movie from the early trailers/teasers but found the film to be enjoyable. I only read a handful of Thor comics as a kid, and while I liked the character, I was fairly ignorant of most of the continuity and backstory. Thor's been given a few makeovers since the last time I read the comic, so I'm not sure how they've tinkered with his origins, abilities, etc.
Oh, and I am in total agreement with you, Ellis, about seeing a movie in a public theater. I've gotten fairly lucky at the last two movies I've seen, but before that it was one string of annoyances after another. Almost put me off seeing movies in public completely.
