    This film looks utterly, horribly bad. Thor falls from the skies onto american hip teenagers. Fuck me.


    It's Beastmaster 2 meets Masters of the Universe!

    Is that the best case scenerio Erik? wink


    I'm not that knowledgeable with the Thor mythos but the way D described it the first two films that popped into my mind were the ones above. Both films are utter shit so Thor doesn't stand a chance. wink However those two films do have awesome scores.

    I haven't seen either of those two films in a very long time ( and ONLY the once at that ) but I do remember being entertained by them, perhaps it helps to know both are shit beforehand leading to no expectations.

    I want to see THOR but it can wait until the DVD release.

  1. I have NO knowledge whatsoever about Thor, but I was under the impression that, to be a part of the Avengers, he HAS to come down to Earth at some point, doesn´t he? Do the Thor comics play in Asgard only? How does he become a member of the team in the comics?

    It's long and convoluted. He was one of the original founding members of The Avengers which consisted of Thor, Ant Man, The Wasp, Iron Man and The Hulk. Captain America joined a little bit later.

  2. But I think it´s safe to assume that the Avenger comics are set on Earth?

    The only Marvel comics I read were some german editions of early Spider-Man comics in my youth, so I watched all those Marvel movies in the recent decade or so with zero knowledge and expectations, but lots of hope for popcorn fun. Some were good, some... not so much.

    Iron Man was easily the best of the whole bunch, due to Robert Downey Jr. playing the role he obviously was born for. And I really love that build-up to the Avengers movie, so, given all that, I´m much more forgiving at details.

    At least that saves you from being fanboy geeky complaining at what they got "wrong" wink

    The Avengers are indeed based on Earth and funded by multi-billionaire Tony Stark aka Iron Man.

    Oh, okay. So SHIELD was basically created/funded by Howard Stark originally? Or is that a movie rewrite?

    (Sorry for asking such stuff at this place. I could google it, of course, but since we´re already on it...)

    You're stretching me now because I've been out of the comics loop for a long time. I don't remember reading anything about an Howard Stark in the 1960's-70's-80's comics but that could all have changed with the re-boots and re-imaginigs that periodically happen in the comics industry, either that or it's an invention of the film writers.

    It's not so much about Thor coming to earth it's the lame teenagers he meets. It becomes more about pop culture jokes (ins't there are retarded Facebook joke in the trailer? Fuck... shoot me now! suicide ) and other annoying shit! Sort of like Encino Man!

    Word. Let's face it. It tries to be hype and modern and talk to the target audience: teens. Nothing more than that. Other than the commercial value (box office echoe) it's rubbish. The more i look at the trailer (forced on me each time i visited the cinema during the last month (and it's been many)) the more disgusted i get about this project.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    I cannot believe Kenneth Branagh has made this. I cannot believe the studio ever thought it was a good idea to let Kenneth Branagh make this. Have they ever seen any of his films?
  3. It's a courageous move, as Sir Humphrey would say, but they give Ang Lee the Hulk as well. And let's not forget -- they're actually making a movie of Thor in the first place. One gamble deserves another.

    Branagh's not really in Lee's league (apart from Shakespeare!) though, is he? And Lee's Hulk film wasn't very successful, was it?

    I could watch Branagh act all day and night - but has anything he's directed other than Shakespeare been any good?
  4. I've never seen Peter's Friends. Sleuth wasn't bad, but that's not quite the same as being good. In the Bleak Midwinter is ok, but that's about people trying to stage a production of Hamlet, so it doesn't dodge Shakespeare entirely...

    Sorry, there I go proving your point and all. wink

  5. People? Did anybody watched the full movie?We mustn't be fooled by the trailers.

    Thor: *****. Could've used a better choral mix, but boy, what a ride!

    La Ligne Droite: *****½. Score of the Year so far...

    Oh wow yes...I remember seeing this when I was 13. Whoever put together that trailer understands how to create drama a whole lot better than Lucas does!
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!

    I think La Ligne Droite's album presentation is pants. There is some lovely music in there for sure but I can only take roughly 15 minutes of it before I have to turn it off. It's so repetitive.

    I did think though, that you would probably be proved right.

    I'm glad I went to see it on the big screen, as I said, GREAT fun!

    Suit yourselves. I haven't anything so far this year that gives me that much enjoyment; I connected with the score's approach immediately and each and every Doyle-ism in it was used to great effect. I've only had this score for two weeks, but it's been playing every day since.

    Since people said, a while ago, that Trevor Rabin had replaced Patrick Doyle on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, do we all know again this is not true? For example, Varese has on their website the announcement of the release of the soundtrack:

    Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

    Music Composed by
    Patrick Doyle
    (Thor, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, Henry V)

    An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. Starring James Franco, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), John Lithgow, Andy Serkis (Lord Of The RIngs) and Brian Cox, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale — a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other — and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.

    The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence, and epic battles on which rest the upended destinies of man and primate.

    Patrick Doyle, riding high with the score for THOR, chalks up another summer blockbuster.

    20th Century Fox opens RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES nationwide on August 5.


    ...and IMDb notes Doyle as the composer. So all is back to normal.

  7. Well, Rabin replacing Doyle was always a rumor. Nothing was confirmed.
