Marvel One-Shot A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer: Good stuff
So far I've been less than impressed with these Marvel One-Shots. I get the concept behind them, I think it's quite neat and they make a great DVD extra but they just haven't been all that good.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer has changed that. In this tiny little short we see our very own Agent Coulson foil a robbery at the petrol station he has stopped at.
The humour is there, Gregg is fantastic as usual and they make the best of the minimal time available.
Speaking of time, this has a feature time of just four minutes however literally half of that is the credits so truth be told this is a 2 minute Marvel outing.
The most frustrating thing is that this cost half a million dollars to make. That's right 500,000 for 2 minutes of entertainment!? How do these people justify their salaries, it's sickening. I'm a movie obsessive as anyone who knows me (Or has been on my profile knows) but the amount these people make for playing dress up is offensive. How have we gotten to the stage in the world where the highest paying jobs are acting, singing and playing games? It's an embarassment.
Anyway this is a fun little short.
Very well made
Feels like a card advert
Not exactly a story present
Stupidly expensive for what it is
Things I Learnt From This Short:
Shield agents make such low salaries they have to choose between donuts
Just shooting bad guys is so passe
I really need to get into Tae Bo
