Overall I really liked this edit. I'm a big Thor fan, big MCU fan. This edit was technically done very very well, it was seamless. If I had any complaint at all it would be that it kinda felt like two movies put together, which I suppose it kind of obvious. But overall, I liked it a lot.
Who would've thought that putting two great movies together would make for a great movie? That’s a bit of an understatement. Cutting all of the scenes not centered around Thor’s journey makes for a well rounded and satisfying journey. Perfect video and sound quality. 100% would recommend to anyone who has already seen both Ragnarok and Infinity War and are fans of the Thor character.
I'm not a big fan of this cut mainly due to Ragnarok and its tone clashing with the tones of Infinity War and Endgame scenes.
Granted, it's just my personal opinion since everything else is well done for the most part.
The editing and audio editing were great and seemly for the most part. The Ragnarok scene switching to infinity war felt odd since it was just used a shot of the starlord and gamora kissing before switching back to the beginning of the scene. It felt odd but was probably the best he can do since they forgot to show the fight in the first place in the actual film.
If you love or like Ragnarok and want more Thor, you may enjoy this edit a lot more than me.
But if you don't like Ragnarok, You shouldn't really be watching this...
Growing up a comic book reader, there are two things that I got used to: a shared universe and big crossover events. Characters from other books would come into the book that you're following for a page or a story before going back into their own. You didn't have to know everything about them, just that they shared the same universe which made it all seem so much bigger. Then every so often, there would a company-wide event. Not every character would be a part of the main driving plot, but they would be affected by it. Which is how we wound up with Daredevil fighting a possessed vacuum cleaner. When done right, those side stories would be just as compelling, if not more so than the main plot. Until the advent of platforms like Marvel Unlimited and Comixology where everything is at your fingertips, you had to be lucky enough that your FLCBS carried all the floppies of that particular event AND that you had enough money to get them all. Otherwise, you had to pick and chose which particular storylines and characters that you were going to follow.
All of that is to say that Infinity Thor reminds me of those days growing up before every comic was at my fingertips in the best possible way. Clearly, there is more to the story than is on the screen, but the narrative does not lack for it, In the first half, everything that happens on Asgard after Hela exiles Thor only comes through Heimdall's eyes and Valkyrie's story. We don't actually see Hela reigning over Asgard, and while I enjoyed Cate Blanchett's performance, she is all the more terrifying for it. Like the shark in Jaws, she has become more formidable through her absence. For the second half, we know that Thanos is out collecting stones, but we don't actually need to see it to enjoy the story being presented. In the first act, Mjolnir is destroyed, so it must be replaced to face this new threat. Following the rest of the Thanos plot would add depth to the world, but really, all we need to know is that Thor needs a new hammer.
I would definitely recommend this edit. It's highly enjoyable and well-worth your time. The editing was clean, and there were no discernible moments that took me out of the film.
I enjoyed every second and have to say, that this cut seemlessly brought together Thor's storylines across the movies whitout making me feel like I'm watching different films.
The cuts and scenetransitions worked perfectly and the watchflow was kept on a constant level by leaving unnecessary hela moments out. There were no disrupting cuts in the sound.
The way this all came together really let me excperience Thor's journey throughout.
The after-credit-scene was the scene I wanted to see the movie end on. Well done.
I absolutely recommend watching Infinity Thor and I'm going to rewatch this cut in the future some more times.
