TRANSCRIPT (Tommy Edison only)
Wow. “Thor 3D”. Something tells me this movie wasn’t made for blind people. Ha ha!
C.G.I. What the hell is that?
You know, most movie I can follow with just performance and dialogue. That’s all I need. This movie… not so much. I think the story was much more visual than written. All the 3D stuff, not there. If they just went with the dialogue alone in this movie… I think it would have been about 35 minutes! Ha ha!
The great Chris Hemsworth! Ha ha! Sorry. He is a good leading man. He’s believable as Thor. Superhero or bad guy or tough guy, yeah, absolutely. He’s not that tough-sweetheart though at the same time.
I think Natalie Portman worked nice and hard at this. I mean, when she was just an uptight scientist and stuff, it was very believable. And then she softens for Thor. You kinda get that too. I didn’t think he brought to much to it though.
There are a lot of laughs in the first 45 minutes. It’s pretty well paced and you’re having a good time and enjoying the characters and stuff. And then all of a sudden, no more laughs. What happened? Can’t we still have fun when the plot is going?
Now I get that there is some pretty heavy things going on in this movie. You can tell. I mean, the way the audio is and the use of sound and the tremendous effects. I’m hearing a lot of sound I’ve never heard before. So I can tell it’s very intense…. but still sort of thin for me.
So, for Thor 3D, huh, wooh… I’m going to give it 2 out of 4 eyes open.
