I watched the movie last night. I thought it was probably comparable to Iron Man in quality....quite good for this type of movie, but not at the level of, say, Nolan's Batman, and not as subversive as a movie like Kick-@$$. Of course, given the subject matter, there's no way to make a movie like this as grounded as "The Dark Knight". So it was as good as it had any right to be, given what it was aiming for.

I hope that makes sense.
Letter Grade?

Until others have seen it to vote and see the results perhaps for awhile people could also put their letter grade in their post as well.

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

Couple of initial thoughts:
No need to see it in 3D - the only bit that was worth it was the closing credits!
Enjoyable, fun, well acted, but not very epic (this for a movie set in 3 realms)
After credit scene will be confusing to non-fanboys
Grade = B+

Thanks for the info, Llama. I have a free movie ticket, but it's not good for 3D showings, so since Thor's 3D apparently isn't anything special, it looks like I'll be seeing this in 2D.

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

Now that I've had a little time to think about it I think I know why it didn't feel as epic as it should have. Both the redemption of Thor and the romance with Jane seemed to happen literally overnight. Had they stretched these two story points out a bit longer, the whole movie would have felt more real.

Some other thoughts:
The best scene is a quiet scene when Loki visits Thor on earth. A touching scene between two brothers, even though Loki was obviously being deceitful.
Skif (is hot) and seems to have a crush on Thor
The humour works - similar to Iron Man
Nice references to Don Blake MD
Irrelevant intro to hawkeye, who wasn't mentioned by hero name, but briefly called by name.
The warriors three were fun; hope they have a bigger role in future films - I'd love an epic film to the other realms with them as sidekicks

I am looking forward to this. I can understand the Sif crush as she and Thor are married in Norse mythology though not in the comics as I recall.

I see odo got there first up above. Well, it seems Thor comes out this Friday here in Seoul, if I'm reading the movie guide aright. I am looking forward to it.

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

Just saw it a couple of hours ago.

I enjoyed every minute of it. But overall, it seemed a little... unfinished? Not as in "unpolished", everything looked & sounded great -- I mean as in the story seemed a bit more compressed than I thought it would be. Less epic.

Overall I give it an A-. Definitely recommend seeing.

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

Loved it!!! I had a real fanboy moment when Thor 'flew' with Mjolnir. I think Marvel have hit the nail right on the head; exciting, fun, epic and intimate, funny and family friendly. It was a breath of fresh air after the hip/knowing worlds of Kick Ass and Scott Pilgrim (which I loved as well, it must be said) and the darkness of the Nolan-verse. I've been reading Marvel comics since the early 70's and I thought it was great; so did my friend's 9 year old son who now wants a cape and hammer!! 'Nuff said.

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

I have seen Thor twice now and think it is up there with the first Iron Man film. The cast is just phenomenal, Chris hemsworth owns the role and Tom Hiddleston is just awesome as Loki. In fact Loki is probably the best film villain i have seen in a while and this is due to Hiddleston's performance. Also the after credits sequence is ace.
