Judging from all the other reviews below, I must be the odd critic out, because I love Thor: Ragnarok! It's my favorite of the three Thor movies (Although I'm curious to see how Love and Thunder will do when it arrives in theaters), and it's the one that, in my mind, pulled off the silliness of Marvel the best. While I don't think it's a perfect film (No Marvel film is, except for Avengers: Infinity War), I still like it a lot and have a lot of affection for it. Between this version and DigMod's, I can happily say that DigMod's is a nice improvement!

I appreciate that this edit isn't attempting to reinvent the wheel. It's a difference of only 13 minutes, and this film didn't need a major improvement as far as I'm concerned. The only two things that separated this edit from the original were that it was shorter, and that it was slightly more serious this time around. I approve of both changes. Clocking in at 117 minutes, the length of this edit is perfect! Not too long, not too short. And the slightly darker tone helped make a lot of the more emotional moments even more effective. The scene where Hulk sees Black Widow's message on the plane, for example, hit harder for me than it did in the theatrical version despite being mostly uncut. I'm also impressed with how invisible almost all of the changes are! The only one I noticed was when Thor threw the ball and the shattered glass sound effect sounded off from the rest of the movie for some reason. Other than that, I didn't notice any of the other changes, and considering how hard that can be sometimes, I have to say, "Bravo, DigMod!"

All in all, this version of Thor: Ragnarok is as close to perfect as it gets, and could very well be my go-to version from here on out! Highly recommended for both Marvel fans and non-Marvel fans!

Ok, what just happened? This is isn't editing, this is flat out magic!! Why do I say this? Thor Ragnarok was my most HATED movie from all the MCU! I'm not even joking. I almost stopped watching Marvel films after this one. Not only the changed the comic a lot, they also made Ragnarok a damn circus!!! Slapstick, braindead jokes and idiotic dialogue at the end of the world!? If one movie needed to be serious and dark in Thor's trilogy, it was this one. So, as you can problably tell, I never in a million years would have thought this movie can be saved. I just couldn't see it. Enter DigiModiFicaTion!

Audio and visual editing, as always, was excellent! I didn't notice or "felt" that something was tampered with, at any scene. So, once again, job well done here!

On the narrative side of things, it is amazing that the editor actually saw that there is a good film that can be salvaged under all the juvenile nonsense! And not only that, now that I could watch the movie at peace and actually enjoy it, I remembered that it is very important one, plot wise, for the MCU. Thor loses his hammer (and eye), Odin dies, we learn the whereabouts of Hulk and how he comes back, Asgard is destroyed and of course the ending, where the ship with all the Asgardians meet Thanos. So you can imagine my overwhelming joy when I realized, as the movie went on, that I liked it!! Not to get greedy, but I will agree with some reviews, that a bit more trimming could be done. Ok, I understand some bad jokes need to be kept for plot reasons, like the one at the beginning with Skurge and the human guns (Des+troy), if you cut this you have a big problem with the character's resolution at the end. But others, like Thor's constant electrocution, could be trimmed I think. Again though, I can live with that! Having 5 bad jokes out the 50, that where before, is an achievement!

So, this version is recommended to everyone! Unless you liked the sillines of the original, obviously. Otherwise, this is will be your go-to version of the movie!! Not that we had a choice before this, personally I just skipped it entirely in my MCU marathons.

Thank you very much DigiModiFicaTion and thanks to anyone who read my review!

Like the rest of the reviewers on this thread I am not a big fan of the theoretical version of Thor Ragnarok, quite frankly they should have did away with the Sakaar stuff and just had the entire movie be about Ragnarok itself yeah perhaps it would have made for a shorter movie but at least it would have been short and sweet with less bad jokes, more action and some meaningful character moments.

Well I think there’s more that could have been trimmed especially the Sakaar stuff ugh, the things that were trimmed and slashed away definitely made this movie a little more bearable and watchable for me and managed to preserve at least some of Thor Odinson’s dignity.

Like panexis and eternalsage, this is by far my least favorite MCU film. But unlike them, this fanedit does not make Ragnarok watchable for me. As eternalsage said, "crap movie is crap down to its bones" haha! So how to be fair when grading this edit?

Okay, the faneditor's stated goal was to "Trim down the overly ridiculous humor and some of the more over the top cgi fights". Did it do that? I think, MOSTLY yes. There's just SO much overly ridiculous humor in this that it might be impossible to cut it all. Some examples that are still in the film: Hela joking about taking out Thor's eye (with a slap, smh?), God of Thunder getting repeatedly tazed, "Is it though?", Asgardian groupies getting splashed by decapitation goo, Loki's 30 minute tazing, and so on. Can all that be cut? I honestly don't know. I feel like the only way to actually fix the humor in this film is with a much more ambitious re-edit, probably mixing up the chronology and re-scoring the film. It wouldn't be a "trimmed" edition. So I mostly have to give this a high rating, even though it was still like nails-on-a-chalkboard to me.

My thoughts on the film in general and what doesn't work are here: https://letterboxd.com/nottheacademy/film/thor-ragnarok/ But I have to say that I'm NOT opposed to humor in a Thor film. But the humor should be situational and happen as a result of character and story, not from improv-ing and TRYING to make jokes. So some of the humor that was removed here was actually consistent with that. Many of Korg's droll lines, Thor's story about Loki's mischief and some of his comments to Hulk, Hulk not caring about being naked, and...even though it probably is too much, I do miss Loki's "That's what it feels like!"

Overall, this didn't reshape the movie in the way that I wanted. I suspect that for people who really enjoyed it the first time and only realized there were issues when they heard other people complain: this will be the perfect sweet spot. Big, goofy, sci-fi comedy with charming people. It's not Thor, but a lot of people didn't care about Thor before this anyway. If so, this is the film for you.

I do share all the points "eternalsage" had made in his review.

DigiMod saved this movie for me, although it´s still not my favourite. But that´s not DigiMod fault, he did an amazing job.
