Thor gets fat! Discuss!
It was a fat suit! Unfortunately. I thought he looked cute and cuddly
Actually a few of us have spoken about it on one thread somewhere, I forget where.
Honestly, I found the fat suit extremely creepy and uncanny valley, but that's just me. I also wouldn't call that fat as such, like, he was chubby but thats about it.
Between the creepy fat suit and the utter distress and trauma of the character though, I didn't find it appealing at all, in a kink standpoint. I just felt really really sorry for the character and wanted to help him. =(
My mistake! I honestly didn't search beyond this forum, assuming it'd be under "Fat in Media" if anywhere.
But yeah, I wasn't much of a fan of the fat suit either. I was more into the idea than the execution. In my headcanon, he was just enjoying retirement as much as he could without thinking of the losses.
I do appreciate that it was Chris Hemsworth's idea for him to keep the weight in the final battle and not do a magical slim-down. Made me like him more.
His weight having nothing to do with his worthiness is an important message to have in such a massively popular movie. If I saw it when I was a chubby kid trying to feel good about myself, I would've been so happy.
Yeah, I did really like the message they were trying to get across. I didn't realise it was Chris Hemsworth's idea for him to keep the weight in the final battle but yeah, that is the only logical thing to do and it was fantastic seeing a fat superhero being taken seriously as a fighter and kicking ass. Thor is honestly a fantastic character anyway, so I loved that.
So that's my problem! I look like I'm wearing a fat suit! This all makes sense now.
*Yeah, I know that I'm no Chris Hemsworth (duh)*
Personally, I kinda liked watching "Big Lebowski Thor" but you just know he'll be back in shape when Thor starts hanging out with the Guardians of the Universe when part three of that comes out.
Is it illegal that I never saw Avengers: Endgame?
ive never seen starwars so.. i think we can let it slide lol
You're not missing anything, so you're good. lol Shots fired! *backs away from Star Wars fans slowly... lol But seriously, I have never seen any of the Godfather movies either, so there you go. lol
Never seen a Godfather or a Rocky movie !
Well, I've seen probably most of the Rocky movies (don't know why I'm admitting that lol), but no don Corleone for me either!
I've only seen the first two Godfathers. They were such a complete story and the third had a less-than-stellar reputation so I didn't bother going any further.
Never seen Jaws though. Or any Rockys.
whhaaaaat! no Jaws!? when i was like 7 after watching that.. i wouldnt go potty alone cuz i was scared he was going to come up the toilet lol
LOL! That would have had to be some kind of toilet for him to get up there! The one that got me was The Exorcist. Saw that when I was about 9 1/2. I was never scared of the dark, but I was scared out of my wits for about a year and a half after that! lol
I've never seen Star Wars, Godfather(s), Rocky(s), Jaws or most disney films.
I'm fantastic at completely missing people's jokes because of this. Also, the only film that really scared me was The Fly, coz I saw it through a door when I was a really little kid. The monkey getting turned inside out, and the guys eyeballs melting/jaw falling off at the end were absolutely horrifying to me.
Ironically, my sister went on to be a researcher in ultra-violent horror films so I ended up watching so many I became completely desensitised to them. Though it did mean there was 7 years of anguished screaming coming from our house as my sister watched her films for research!
Wait! You haven't seen Jaws? JAWS!?!?! You might want to watch that before your next foray to a beach. It could save your life.
Please at least watch the first Rocky move. It's loosely based on a true story (Ali vs Wepner).
And for the love of everything sacred Emmy, just watch the first 3 Star wars movies. All the rest are "meh".
