    The amount of time and money used to put a digital eyepatch on Anthony Hopkins is funny to think about.

    Yeah, that just seems like a weird call.

    Did he just refuse to wear one?

    Still not anywhere near as embarrassing as this, though:

    Looks like he was wearing one in the original footage, then they decided they wanted to color-adjust the eyepatch, and then they built a 3D render for sake of photorealism (maybe color-correcting frame by frame wasn't catching light in the right way).

    This was so good. Top tier Marvel.

    Waititi needs a little work on his action scenes, but everything here is overflowing with so much charm and sincere humor it’s hard to even fault it for its ho hum fights.

    Visually striking, again particularly with Waititi’s comedy.

    Haven’t seen such confident visual comedy since Edgar Wright.

    Having just rewatched after not connecting with it much the first time: Loved most every second. Pretty much laughed my ass off all the way through. This is a terrific piece of pop entertainment.

    There's a shot at the end with the main characters --- Thor, Loki, Hulk, Valkyrie, etc etc --- and I kinda wished they'd do a spinoff series about "The Revengers" tooling around the galaxy solving, I dunno, local crimes or something. Ya know, instead of whatever lame shit they'll inevitably do for "Guardians 3."

    What struck me this time was how great the production design was, and how much detail exists in the shots. This might be the best looking Marvel movie in the series. I loved how Waititi's team married the dayglo sensibility of 70s and 80s sci-fantasy to contemporary taste. It's like a little bit of Kirby and a little bit of Moebius, but it a $200 million blockbuster movie.

    Thor might be edging out Cap as my favorite Marvel character. Hemsworth has grown into the role and Thor has the most interesting arc in the series.

    (I'm half tempted to watch "Infinity War" just to see that one scene between Rocket and Thor again.)

    Nobody at the end of the film comments on whether or not Hulk can change back into Banner when that's a huge part of his final choice.
    True, but then nobody in the film notices that The Hulk spent 2 years on an alien planet murdering slaves. Which sorta ties into your other point about Thor not acknowledging the loss of friends on Asgard: There's a lot implied violence throughout that the film isn't equipped to deal with.

    Fair point.

    Also, I like this movie more now than in my initial response. It's grown in my mind. The aesthetic, the combination of characters, and the colonialist subtext have aged well in my mind. This is one of the best of this whole damn saga, and I agree with you that it elevates Thor to a top-tier hero.
