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

Just out of curiosity, how big of a role does Sif play in the movie? I'm a big Kyle XY, fan and I was really happy to see that Jaime Alexander got a role in a big movie like this.

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

she's a supporting role, in it at the beginning, gets a couple of small scenes in the middle and then a larger part nearer the end.

she is good though. her scenes are good at showing she's a good warrior and a good friend to Thor. and she's hot.

Who was the SHIELD agent to whom Thor said "I've fought bigger"?

I gave it a solid A.

I had so much fun. And was fortunate enough to find a 2D showing.

Best Marvel movie since Iron Man. And I am genuinely surprised by that. Huge congrats to Kenneth Branagh for taking the hardest to translate into the cinematic universe and really making it work.
I remember when the movie and choice of director were announced you expressed your concern at how hard it was going to be to pull this one off. IIRC, you were worried because Thor was one of your fave Marvel characters and you didn't want to see him badly done. I'm glad the movie didn't disappoint you.

Forgot to ask in my review, was that a cosmic cube at the end of the movie?

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

- I saw it not knowing much about Thor, so I can't say I was blown away, but I did find it to be an enjoyable and serviceable summer movie. I'll give it a B-.

- Chris Hemsworth was quite good in the role. I found it interesting that the studio went with a newcomer, but he delivered.

- Good humor.

- I don't think I've ever seen a movie like this where the action went back and forth between the everyday world and a fantastical realm. Usually it starts off in a fantastical realm with the bulk of the action taking place in a more grounded setting. Good to see something different here.

- I didn't catch the logistics of how old these gods were or how long they've been alive, but I'm not thinking too much about it right now.

- Asgard looked fantastic, but a few scenes did make it look abit too CGI-ish.

- I didn't know that Colm Feore was in the movie until I saw his name in the end credits.

- I wasn't sure that the mother was Rene Russo. She looked different in parts of the movie. Her distinctive chin wasn't as distinctive.

- I'm can't wait to see how Thor blends in with, and interacts with the rest of Marvel's heroes in The Avengers. I'm a little more eager to see that movie now, despite my annoyance and disappointment that they replaced Norton.

A-

I liked it, but it was too quickly pased in some areas and there were a few shots that seemed to be wasted. But all in all, a good summer movie.

No, clearly, that was SHIELD agent Wendell Vaughn.

I was kinda hoping he'd turn out to be the Black Panther.

Thor has never actually been one of my favourite Marvel characters...I actually never really read his comics or was all that interested in him. My familiarity is mostly through The Avengers.

What you might be mixing up with what I said was Iron Man was one of my fave Marvel characters, and I didn't see how they could combine the realistic, down to Earth style of Iron Man with the fantastical elements of Thor and make it seem believable. I was relieved when Branagh was hired, as he's definitely a man who could do that, and it showed how serious they were about finding the right director.

I'm astounded at how well and smoothly and comfortably they combined the feel of both Iron Man's "real world" setting and the fantastic elements of Asgard. The two story elements never once seemed out of place with each other.

Really great movie. Can't wait to see it again in 2D, because yeah, I agree, the 3D sucked.

^ I liked it when the Destroyer showed up and someone said... "One of Stark's?" That was a nice way of blending the mystical with the real world.

I thought one thing they used really well to combine the two worlds was the "to a primitive enough society, science would seem like magic" motif. They reiterated it a couple times, and it really helped sell the combo.
