Thor Ragnarok
« on: March 27, 2019, 02:44:02 pm »
I bought the BlueRay movie today. I’m propably the last person on earth who still buys movies on a disc. I don’t know how to download movies and don’t care to know.

Anyway, The movie was awsome and some bits were funny. I recommend it to you people who like movies like this. Maybe I’m a bit biased being Nordic. Haha. I’ve read the stories about Asgard and Hel, Tor, Oden and Loke in school.

And Chris Hemsworth as a main character. *pssshhhhhttttt* hot as hell. I could watch the movie all over just because of him.

I look forward to seeing it.  I liked the other Thor movies.  I agree about Chris Hemsworth but I think that Tom Hiddleston's Loki would be worth turning bad for.

I also buy discs only.

Thor's ok, I thought it would have been better handled by Marvel when they started the franchise but I never thought it was cast right. The guy playing Loki doesn't fit the role somehow and Thor probably could have been cast better. Still, could be worse, it's a fun franchise. Ragnarok was good.

I'm another buy discs only!

I watched Thor during some of my recovery times and enjoyed it as just mindless fun. I think the whole  comic book movie craze is a bit odd. As for Loki I'm not sure if he is supposed to be evil/bad or mischievous bad. In the movie the character certainly fails the evil test and I'm not sure about mischievous. I think it sort of failed as a character, could have been a lot more depth.

Tony, in Norse mythology was Loke evil or .... a court jester bad character type gone a bit bad?

There are some things wrong in the movie.

Loke (Loki) and Angerboda had three children. Fenrisulven, Midgårdsulven and Hel. In the movie Hel was Oden’s daughter.

Anyway. Angerboda was a giant. And in the end at Ragnarök Loke fought along side with the giants against the gods.

Loke had a lot of intrigues and conspiracies going on. When he killed Balder the gods threw him out of Asgard and chained him in a cave where a poisonous snake dropps his poison in Lokes eyes causing him to move around and making the earth shake.

It is a cruel story.

There are other children of Loki also.

Loki is the father, by the giantess Angrboda (Angrboða, “Anguish-Boding”), of Hel, the goddess of the underworld; Jormungand, the great serpent who slays Thor during Ragnarok; and Fenrir, the wolf who bites off one of the hands of Tyr and who kills Odin during Ragnarok – hardly a reputable brood, to say the least.

With his proper wife Sigyn (“Friend of Victory”), he also has a son named Nari or Narfi, whose name might mean “Corpse.”

Loki often runs afoul not only of societal expectations, but also of what we might call “the laws of nature.” In addition to the progeny listed above, Loki is also the mother – yes, the mother – of Sleipnir, Odin’s shamanic horse, whom Loki gave birth to after shapeshifting into a mare and courting the stallion Svadilfari, as is recounted in the tale of The Fortification of Asgard.

Isn’t that interesting......

Yes, obviously genderfluid.  Isn't there one of our members who identifies as genderfluid, has a mischievous sense of humour and might just have Devylish horns like the movie Loki?  Coincidence?  I think not.  Still, being in the trans spectrum, neither of them (assuming that they are not one and the same) can be all bad.
