Watched the movie earlier today and it showes. No dont get me wrong, the movie isnt bad or annything, but it feelt rly rly short, like we got to the end and i had to check my watch, no way the end was yet? Its like it skipped the middle part and went straight from start to fnish

Right. Felt like there was too much setup in the begining, and a little like the Thor, Jane, and Gorr stories weren't tied together enough. I swear it takes Jane and Thor 45 minutes before they get together and after that the interactions between them are too few and far between, spaced out between gags and disconnected plot details.

I enjoyed all the parts, but I feel like it's one of those things that adds up to less than the sum total of its parts. I feel like there could have been more emotional heft, but it kept undercutting itself.

Would have liked to have seen a longer cut.

I haven’t seen it yet but have no idea how a 2 hour movie felt short. Usually these things are full of bloat. I’m thankful that the length got reeled in a bit.

agree with this. I feel like a lot of moments should have been longer, more personal, and more emotional, and I definitely feel like we should have seen much more of the villain

Seeing Gorr slay a few different gods in other short scene would have been good too.

Marvel's highest grossing movies have been some of it's longest, so they obviously know that length isn't a problem.

That means they had other reasons to cut it like this.

I mean it's in explained in the Article by Portman herself...

“Taika was pretty gutsy about just letting us seriously change the plot because of certain choices we made in the scene and certain places we decided to go,” the actress said. “Some of it was right and some of it was not right. Some of it ended up in the film, some of it did not, but it was pretty incredible to get to play and to get to have that latitude in the emotional stuff, as well as the comedic stuff.”

That demand for spontaneity and a bent toward filming multiple takes of different scenes meant lots of good stuff was left on the cutting room floor.

Because it wasn’t working.

It can work on the page but not on set. It can work on set but not in the editing room. It can work in the editing room but not in theaters.

The source comics for this movie are good but also a fucking mess with everything they cover.

If the cut content is from the source material it’s likely they cut them to improve the flow and make it a consistent plot without a bunch of diversions

I watched the movie yesterday, this news makes alot of sense. It doesn't feel like the story was clearly missing vital scenes to provide context or anything.

It's meant to be an adventure story though but the journey isn't long enough, it's like a movie with all the fat trimmed off but for alot of people the fat is the best part.

I’m a little confused. You’re saying it doesn’t feel like it’s missing anything.

But before that you said this news makes sense that so much was cut from the film.

So it makes sense that stuff is missing even though you didn’t feel like anything was missing?
