So I watched thor fraggle rock the first time. Meh. Why the hype?
Ran out of stuff on Netflix and turned it on to see what the hype was about. First off I suspected comic book movies were to blame for the demise of Star Wars but now 100% sure. The opening scene is almost the exact same as the prank phone call in TLJ. The forced humor in the recent Star Wars reeks as a rip off of these. It was mildly entertaining but have zero clue on how these things get high ratings from critics and how people are scheduling their lives around trailer drops.

Rotten Tomatoes must've lowered their standard for what a critic is because there are waaaaay too many Highly rated movies these days

Prepared to get attacked on this board To me, they're just standard popcorn flicks that I enjoy taking my kids too. It is funny how so many seem to think these are top tier film making.

Yep I mean it was fine for a mindless middle of the week couple hours but somehow many have taken this stuff to a whole different level including “critics”. My suspicion is Disney is giving them massive kick backs

You should update the title. I really want to see some meltdowns this morning.

Done. For a board that likes to be as pretentious as the movie tv board the fact that comic book movies are seemingly half the topics is asinine. Might as well be discussing fast and the furious

Considering Comic Book movies make up the majority of blockbusters released these days, the fact that the board is filled with threads about them kind of makes sense...

Which is a travesty that many on this board perpetuate by giving them box office numbers. I haven’t seen a comic book movie in theaters since I was a teenager which is what’s appropriate. Yet somehow the millineals live in a state of perpetual adolescence and refuse to give up childish things

Jesus, you must be a blast at parties. Sorry you’re ostentatious arse doesn’t enjoy what 95% of the population does. If you dont like them, then don’t watch. Problem solved.

You are aware that Netflix uses viewership data to determine what sort of movies to pursue and produce, right? You've perpetuated this too, in your own way. Congrats!

And believe me as soon as it was over I felt a massive sense of guilt come over me. I consoled myself by finding a delightful French film and playing it on repeat the rest of the evening

What is "top tier film making" to you?

Probably an indie film that grossed 1.5 million in the box office and only 12 people saw.

I came here ready to tell you why the hype about actual Fraggle Rock exists.

The millennial boogeyman strikes again.

Most would say we’re abandoning adolescence far too quickly. But when it fits the argument, we’re just a childish bunch.

You're so cool.

It's a fun movie, has good action, good comic relief parts, cool imagery, and a good story.

Is it a film making masterpiece? No, but why does the popularity of fun movies bother you?

You come across as a hipster. "Here's a thing lots of people like, I'm going to dislike it to be cool"

You will get shite on and downvoted into eternity with this thread, but I am with you though. I thought Ragnarok was decent, but that's about it. I voiced that in a thread months back and people jumped my arse and I got like 50 downvotes.

It was good/entertaining enough, but fell pretty flat with me. The main thing for me was the humor and how forced it was. I felt like they were trying to hard to be GotG and forced jokes into every single line that they could. There is a difference between something trying to be funny and something being actually funny. And Thor fell into the first category for me most of the time.

I did like the rock-dude though. He was hilarious and his voice cracked me up the whole time. Loki was also solid as usual. But outside of that, I found it VERY overrated.
