Went to the IMAX showing last night, and was suitably impressed. Closest touchstone is the 80's Flash Gordon, and - speaking as a fan of the first Thor - this actually works better as a Thor-finding-himself than the Shakespearian themed one. Oh, and yes, that is Matt Damon. You'll know when you see it. First part suffers a little from choppiness - similar to Rogue One - and would've benefited from another 10 minutes or so to smooth things over, it's not like the film ever outstays its welcome so it wouldn't have been a stretch to add in. It also suffers from the usual Marvel malaise of undercooked villain, but solves this by using her for impact, and Blanchett merges menace and camp straight from Sydow's Ming. But once it gets going... It's a real laugh-out-loud film. Hulk is done brilliantly, he's basically the annoying little kid who laughs at others misfortunes, only in the body of the ultimate bully. The film is going to be a love it or hate it, it's unashamedly camp, neon lit - the attempts to make Asgardians as being just technologically advanced is binned, it embraces all the silliness that is the shoehorning of Norse mythology in the MCU and is all the better for it. And, as befitting campiness, don't expect complex humour, and some of the jokes can see coming a mile off. It also subtlety underlines the sibling rivalry a bit, Thor just does shit and it all works out in the end, Loki carefully plans things and they usually blow up in his face, so you can see why Loki may just get more than a little pissy about it. Goldblum must've had fun as Grandmaster, and Waititi certainly did as Korg who is very different in personality from the comics. The stingers are okay, the first one leads into the start of Infinity War, but in a foreboding way rather then going for the jugular, the second returns to Sakaar. It leaves things in an interesting place too It's a crazy film that works, and one I'd have happily seen again right after watching it.
