Thor: Ragnarok - Trimmed Edition Featured

I thoroughly enjoyed this when I watched it in the cinema but found myself frustrated by the excess humour, which at times was positioned inappropriately and undercut scenes that were intended to be serious and/or emotional. This edit eliminates that problem by 'pruning' away the OTT humour and letting certain scenes have the impact that was intended. Cringeworthy moments (Thor spinning on the chain, many of the jokes in the Sanctum, the 'fake' infinity gauntlet etc) are removed seamlessly. DigMod will undoubtedly undertake more complex and ambitious edits, but despite its simplicity I couldn't honestly give this anything other than full marks on both a technical and enjoyment level.
Do you recommend this edit?
