As other reviewers have noted, this edit has stripped a lot of the misplaced humor that was in the original. The humor is still there, but it shines through really well.
I do disagree with one edit, though, the one Digi made in the scene where Thor was stabbed by Loki at 8 years old.
It was my favorite joke, and was sad to see it go.
One audio edit stuck out to me, though. The scene where Thor throws the ball and breaks the glass, the breaking glass sound effect didn’t sound natural to me in that scene, maybe it was a little muted, but other than that any other audio edits that were done went completely unnoticed by me.
All in all, this is a great edit by Digi. Looking forward to any future edits he makes.
I cannot find the words to describe how wonderful this edit was. Useless and flat jokes are gone, awkward pauses are out, and things feel elevated because of it. I did ding you a star for an audio effect (only because it stood out so much), but please don't take offense to it. When Thor throws the ball out against the glass, the shattering sound effect needed to extend longer, it ended too soon. Personally I would have kept the Dr. Strange and "tunnel scream", but only because it made me laugh so much.
But in all seriousness, you have done excellent work and this is a GRAND example of why I love this community so much! My hats off to you! I will never watch the vanilla version again!
This is the defenitive cut in my eyes, because it takes the stale jokes to make the movie a little more serious. The better jokes are still there and you're able to appreciate them more. MCU has a bad habit of doing this, probably to appeal to a younger generation, so having this cut really gives the more a lot more replay-ability. Overall, great job!
I'm sure the other reviewers on this section of the IFDB page for this will disagree with me, but I personally felt the jokes in Thor: Ragnarok never took away from the story, characters, and emotional beats as they are, frequent and in-your-face as they are. Still, I must admit I got a heavy amount of enjoyment out of this particular fanedit, which aims to present it in a way that's tonally consistent with the earlier two Thor films. The audio/visual quality is phenomenal throughout and the editing is absolutely superb, with no cuts being in any way distracting or overly obvious. Very, very good stuff.
Not much to say that hasn't already been said. This is now my definitive edition of Thor: Ragnarok! I only wish it had been edited from a BD source, as compression artifacting is slightly distracting at various points throughout, but that's a consequence of starting with an iTunes download source.
