Its an easy out for Thor, as he didnt have to decide what to do with Loki, the decesion was taken out of his hands.
So? Have you ever read a comic?

You dont think his time on Earth was a bit brief? for him to hold such feelings for Jane?
No. It's possible to fall in love, or at least develop feelings for someone, pretty quickly.

The point I'm making is that the bad guy isn't always dealt with at the end of the story. Especially when the bad guy is a god.

Who cares what your experience is? The fact is that it's possible to fall for someone quickly, regardless of whether you fall out of love just as fast, which isn't a hard and fast rule either.

fair enough, but that dosnt mean the fact Thor didnt have to deal with it, wasnt something that I felt was a weak point of the movie.

There is usually a non 3D option. I don't know if that will be the case with all of the films that are slated for release with 3D.

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

From what I have gleaned from critic and fan reviews, the 3D is solid but not necessary for enjoyment of the film by any means. Apparently it adds a lot to certain sequences (such as the reveal of Asgard) and possibly detracts somewhat from others (such as the faster-paced actions sequences).

I'll be seeing it in 3D on Friday, and probably 2D for a second viewing at some point. There are plenty of showings of both (at my theater in any event).

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

Appreciate those letting us who haven't seen it know your going to start talking specifics. And posting your letter grade. Thanks again.
It's a bummer to have to skip some posts but soon that won't matter. I know,"Stay out if you want to avoid spoilers, right?". Well some posts are non-spoilery while being very praise oriented and that boosts my enthusiasm for the movie.
In 48hrs I will be able to share in all the discussion!!


Doing 2-D first with some friends opening night.

A-

I hereby dub it "Much better than I expected."

Really, the thing I liked most was I got to see everything I wanted to see in Thor's first fight scene. He twirled the hammer, he threw the hammer and it came back, he flew with the hammer. I could have left right after that battle was over and I'd still have been satisfied.

Of course, the downer is I'm sick of seeing Natalie Portman's face freaking everywhere. Really. She played Luke and Leia's mother and a crazy ballerina lady. I get it. We're supposed to love her. Can we find another actress now?

And Special Agent Coulson rulzzzz!

That is all.
