This was a very fun edit. The fat was trimmed off of what was already a pretty good movie. The new subtitles add the nice Shakespearean flare that TM2YC was aiming for but don't distract either. The editing was very seamless and nothing really stands out as a flaw. Leaving the humor intact was certainly the way to go and I highly recommend the edit.

Great edit. This was a solid movie and with some trimming it is even better. I agree with most of the dumb stuff cut. I liked the humor peppered throughout so I'm glad you retained that. I think the ending is a bit more satisfying. This replaces the film for me.

TM2YC fanedit of Thor: The Dark World is great example showing how effective a fanedit can be by simply moving a few scenes around and trimming a little fat can greatly improve the original cut. Both the opening and end are effectively done and are the stand out moments. However looking at the cut list you see that there is a lot more to this edit all of which go unnoticed.

My only criticism would be the humor still remains especially in the third act were it feels a little out of place. But this didn't change my overall enjoyment as the fanedit greatly improves over the original and if it's not a concern for TM2YC then that's fine with me.

I've enjoyed the Thor films so far but in regards to the Marvel Film Universe he has been the weak link for me. while I'd give the theatrical cut a 7/10 TM2YC improves the score to a 8/10, but the problems with Thor: The Dark World are still there. Given the short run time and lack of decent deleted scenes TM2YC has done a great job with this edit and is a must see for any Marvel fan

Thor - The Dark World: Hard Forged Edition is a great example of how editing can change the pace of a movie.

Thor - The Dark World theatrical release was the first marvel movie that felt...off. The story flow was off, the jokes where off, and most glaringly obvious, the pacing was off. TM2YC has done a wonderful job picking up the pace of the film and making it more engaging. Removing the prologue was a great choice. It allowed us to immediately get on with the story that was left off at the end of the Avengers. This new beginning really sets the tone of the rest of the story.

The editing was pretty spot on. I only noticed one cut and that was probably because I was looking for cuts. And now that I'm talking about I can't even remember where it was so it wasn't that awful.

I hope Marvel/Disney asks TM2YC to take a look at their next Thor movie before it's released. It may just make all the difference.

I've seen the original a couple of times, once at the cinema and once at home. I enjoyed it but I did feel it dragged along a bit.
TM2YC's edit was certainly more enjoyable than my memory of the theatrical release, I haven't seen the original for a while which was good as I really didn't have much memory of the story line, so this was like viewing the movie for the first time.
Technically I feel the edit is pretty much flawless, no jarring cuts or audio mismatches that I could tell.
Regarding the narrative, it all flowed well, the pace was great and the whole feel of the movie felt better.
In all honesty, without reading the change list or re watching the original, I could not tell you exactly what was different. But to me that just shows how good the edit is, no thoughts of "well that didn't work" or "I wish he hadn't cut that bit out", I just sat and watched and enjoyed.

Great work TM2YC, thanks.
