THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***



It's time to finally watch this movie. The film doesn't open in the North American market until May 6 however it is having it's worldwide premier April 21 in Australia.

The embargo on reviews is to be lifted on Monday(4/18) so all the critics will have their voice heard. Use the following link to find out when THOR opens near you.

THOR official site.

THOR background at wikipedia.

THOR trailer at YouTube till I can figure out how to embed it. It's not Code, HTML or PHP how do you embed??

There's been about four reviews I've read and they're positive, so far. Then again, they're mainly from genre sites like IGN and Comic Book Resources.

An advance review that calls Thor "the best Marvel film yet".

Just being prudent.
It does open this week with the world premiere and all. Being a global community a place now exists outside the lead up thread for those to discuss the film.

The toys for Thor have been out for a month now. I was surprised to see them so early at my local walmart. The foam hammer was nice touch.

Thor is one of the movies I'm looking the most foward to which include Fast Five and Pirates 4.

To post embed videos, just get the youtube link from the address bar, then use the [yt] tags like this. Simple.

If you do that, make sure to do it at a midnight screening where fellow fanboys will also be attending. Any other time, you might get strange looks.

Dream thanks for embedding that trailer. I used your instructions and they worked in the 'preview message' but didn't upload once I hit submit.
Guess I'll have to keep playing with it.


I have bought the helmet and smaller foam hammer. Don't look for me to wear them to the movie though.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie but after reading the leaked script a couple months ago I have to admit that I'm not looking forward to it as much as I was. Maybe the first time where this has occurred to me.

You know, not being the biggest Marvel fan in the world, I really wasn't paying notice (or caring) about this. But after seeing a few trailer, I might have to go check it out.

It would cost you a groaning to take off mine edge.

Or something.

Yeah, for some reason, if you preview a post with an embedded YouTube video, the video disappears.
