    Yeah, it makes sense Darcy didn't return because there was no Jane, but it's still a shame.

    And I, for one, enjoyed Dennings' sitcom. :p

    Taika Waititi is a one note Director. I'm a kiwi and he is practically worshipped over here but he does every movie in "his style" and it's not a subtle one, and he shoehorn kiwi humor into every movie he does.

    If you loved Ragnarok then good news, if you didn't it's bad because you are going to get the same movie again.

    I think I’ve seen two of his films. Didn’t think they were that much alike.

    Wow, if someone watches What We Do In The Shadows, Thor Ragnarok, and Hunt For the Wilderpeople and comes away thinking they are all the same type of movie....

    ^ No, I meant to say the guy who doesn't write good, prominent parts for women. Which is Christopher Nolan. ;)

    You.... understand there is more to a movie than humor, right? Character, plot, cinematography, setting, action set pieces, etc? That's like saying Tarantino is a one-note filmmaker because all of his films have clever dialogue, or Scorsese is a one-note filmmaker because he makes a lot of movies about organized crime.

    Oh really? No I didn't understand that.

    All Waititi movies are the same exact tone, he has no versatility. You can make a Waititi movie of Lord of the Rings it'll be the same thing with the same kind of jokes.

    You could get Waititi to remake one flew over the cucoos nest it would have the same jokes

    He has one style regardless of the story written for him or the setting or actors he's given.

    Title design. Is Thor going to fight Skeletor? It's almost got a He-man/Conan look to it
