New THOR Footage Full Of Dutch Angles, “Comedy”

Kenneth Branagh can’t keep his camera straight in this new THOR footage.

Besides the heavy handed ‘comedy’ in the scene, what’s really troubling is the use of dutch angles. Ever since the Batman TV show dutch angles in a superhero property have spelled disaster, in my opinion. In fact they’re rarely ever used properly, and usually denote some kind of ironic distance between the filmmaker and the material, an attempt to get more ‘heightened’ in shorthand.

That’s just my take. I know Roger saw more footage at CinemaCon and I await his report as eagerly as you do. In the meantime, check out the new Thor footage for yourself.
