    It's things like this that made me almost make the votes publically viewable.

    If you really saw it and think it's an 'F' have the conviction to list your reasons. Otherwise it's an apparent drive by from someone who didn't see the film.

    I still have 7 days till I can see this. That is unless my LCS gets some more passes. Their vendor gave him 5 passes for the whole store and he's asked for more. The local sneak is next Tuesday. I've had to skip over the longer reviews and thanks for those that started with *Spoiler coming* I skipped those for now also.

    Glad to hear it's getting good reception!! :techman:
    Also cool that you posted your grade in your post cause I can't view the results yet.

    I just saw it, it was a fun ride. I want more! Everyone was great in it. It does tell a bit too many individual pieces for the amount of time. They hold together thanks to the actors, but the story might have been trimmed by removing the SHIELD part and giving the Jane Foster angle more time. The Asgard stuff was a lot of fun and Loki was wonderfully portrayed. A definite A for me.

    That is what I think, as I'm quite sure I saw it there before it opened in Australia. Unless it was someone who was at the World Premiere, but unlikely I think.

    And I gave it an A.

    Why do they read the actors' names out at the end like we should have any idea who the hell they are?

    Just got back from it, and it was indeed almighty.

    Solid A from me, although it said I had already voted? I certainly didnt do a drive by with an F to my recollection...so what gives?

    Just seen it myself too (the 3d version). I thought it was very good.

    I haven't read any of the comics so some of the references may have been missed by me (Especially the end of credits one. Before looking it up on wiki, I had no idea what that was).
    This will definitely be on order for me when it comes out.

    sorry ive not read back, looking to avoid spoilers, but is there a bonus scene at the end of Thor, as with the other Marvel/Avenger movies?

    I give it an A. It's not quite perfect, I would have liked a bit more action, but what's there there's nothing wrong with. Great characters, acting, set pieces, music and design.

    And a great plus for me as someone who didn't really know about the comic of Thor before I saw this movie, but love Norse mythology, I really liked how they injected the mythology into the Marvel universe. Good stuff.

    I'll be recommending this one to people I know.

    For us there was, along with Pirates 4, Cowboys and Aliens, X-Men and a couple of others that I can't remember at the moment. Usually, we just have the three and an Orange one (currently the Rio one)

    So there seems to be a
    Dr. Strange
    reference in the movie. Anyone catch it? Also the
    Eye of Agamotto
    is supposed to be in the film too.
