Sorry, can't post video. Just wanted to point out how magnificent the Comedy Central commercials with Tom Hiddleston are. Loki and a bunch of kindergarteners.

Oh, and out this Friday. Mostly the commercials though.

There's a bootleg online already (yay international releases!). However, the big news today is that Marvel announced Netflix TV shows based on Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, & a miniseries based on the Defenders (With no mutants/FF/Spider-Man; so I'm guessing Doc. Strange, Hellstrom, Valkyrie, & the 4 mini-series' folks with maybe a Hulk Cameo. No Namor, Silver Surfer, Beast, Black Cat. Maybe Ant-Man if that flick bombs.)

Good flick, way better than the first one. No need to see it in 3D. Two post credits scene, the first of which leads into Guardians of the Galaxy & shows Benicio Del Toro as the Collector (Squee!). The 2nd one is more in line with the Avenger's schwarma scene. Loki pretty much steals the movie, but Thor is much less one dimensional in this than in his previous two appearances. The villain is pretty boring, though. Its quite funny, too.

Although I do hope the thing they show at the end chasing the birds pops up in SHIELD next week...

Also, the longer version of the Cap preview that played before the flick was pretty amazing.

It was decent enough. It was definitely better than the first movie, but that's not saying much. It could have benefited from losing about twenty minutes though. There were a couple points during the middle where the movie really just dragged by, not accomplishing much. Still, I enjoyed it. I'd give it a solid 3.5 out of 5.

I agree, I liked it better than the first one for the most part, though there were some aspects of the first one that they lost in this one that could have been improved on. The middle was definitely unnecessarily slow. I did like that they were willing to bring the humor in. The Captain America cameo / illusion / thingy in the middle was hilarious though

Overall I'd say it was worth a watch. I liked it better than I liked Iron man III. Natalie portman could still have been replaced by a cardboard cutout though.

Yup. No need to see the 3D version, though.

I concur. Worth watching at least once if you enjoy that sort of movie in general anyways.

The sets are *really* pretty. Its the sort of eye-candy (not referring to bodies) that I love watching on a big screen. Loved the special effects and enjoyed the set-pieces. Didn't see it in 3-D and it was still gorgeous. This is one of the new raft of superhero movies that I have liked better than most of them. Iron Man 1 is still my favorite. I laughed out loud a couple of times in Thor 2. I think Natalie did the best she could with the material handed to her. I've seen a few art-house films where she has acted her butt off.

Natalie Portman has been in some really awesome roles. But she consistently gets cast in roles where the writers completely drop the ball.

She was absolutely amazing in Closer, imo. I thought she did an awesome job in V for Vendetta. Not that this is saying much, but I'd say she was one of the better cast members in the Star Wars prequels. WAY closer to Jackson-level talent than she was... Christensen.

The writing for Jane really bugged me for the first Thor, because there were even minor writing changes I could see that would have made Jane's character so much stronger. But they consistently undercut those moments to refocus on Thor. Which ultimately, imo, made Thor's character less interesting.

This bugged me even more because the Iron Man trilogy actually understood it needed to let Pepper be way more... real. And I don't think Gweneth Paltrow has nearly as much talent that Portman does.

I like all the beautiful sexy female actors hitting the scenes these days that are flat-chested as I am. Natalie Portman, Keira Knightly, Lucy Lui and so many more.

Are you guys backing off big boobs?

I've never been thrilled with Gweneth Paltrow's acting. I just always get the impression that she doesn't even try and act....because 'why should she'?

Well you could always watch Spartacus (blood and sand) and get your naked Xena fix.

Eh, I like lots of different boobs.

Saw the movie today, it was enjoyable. Not great, but pretty good.

Don't know who the Collector is, but piqued my interest for the next Avengers (or Thor 3 or w/e). Frankly I'm more interested in what happened to Odin.

Just watched it now, there was no 2D option, unless I take the glasses off I guess, which just makes it look like one has been drinking. A lot.

Very entertaining, which is what I went there for, so call me happy.

I did stand in line for ONE pop and ONE popcorn, then blew a gasket when they wanted $14 for it, which was more than the ticket price. The Scottish part of me made me walk away.

I'm not a comic book reader, so who was this "collecter" dude after the credits?

It's all about the ratio of the breast size to the size of the body, IMO. With the shape most common in Hollywood actresses nowadays, good boobs should be on the small-med side.

I was at the nearby Cinepolis recently and realized that in addition to the $20 for the ticket, I'd spent $40 for food. But in this case, food meant sweet potato skinny fries with an insanely good honey mustard sauce, an avocado BLT panini with chicken (also ridiculously tasty), and a pretty decent margarita (a bit on the small side, but sufficiently strong). Put in the context of $14 for a soda and popcorn, that's not a bad deal after all. And comfy chairs!

I don't even know what sort of food they serve at the theaters I frequent. I'm not there for the food, and I can go two hours without needing to gulp down an over sized paper cup of watered down diet coke.

We've got a few 'round here, but I can never justify going to myself. The drinks and food aren't as good as a real bar/restaurant and the ticket prices are too much to want to jeopardize missing even a moment.

Saw the movie over the weekend. Was a good flick, but I wouldn't really put it in my top ten. Hiddleson really made the movie for me. Granted, I'm not exactly a Thor fan either. Didn't feel like wasted money.

The movie was good. Loki is growing on me. The romance was 'meh'.

I have a Regal Card. Occasionally I get free stuff from the snack bar, but mostly I just splurge five bucks on a box of Milk Duds that I try and make last through the whole show.

I got a free movie ticket on my last visit. I'm saving it for The Hobbit part duex.

Yea, I've found that even though we don't go to the movies very often, taking the 5 minutes to get the Regal Card has already paid dividends in free movies and snacks (got a free drink at Thor and a free ticket for our next outing). Helps that the 2 main theaters we go to in town are both Regal, so our choices aren't even really limited by having the card.

I see maybe 3 or 4 movies in the theater a year, and it's usually just me and maybe a friend or two who also don't watch a lot of films each year and for whom going out to see a movie usually is more of a "night out" kind of thing. So the difference between paying $10-12 to sit in a tiny cramped seat with a high probability of someone blocking my view, versus paying $20 to sit in a power reclining leather chair, with side table, folding food tray, call button for service, and absolutely no possibility of having my experience ruined by some idiot/jerk sitting nearby? Totally worth it IMO.

I'd say that the food quality is high (better than a lot of bar/restaurants IMO), just that the things they serve are more on the appetizer end of the spectrum rather than a full sit down meal. There's no requirement to order anything of course, so you can always just look at it as paying more to get a perfect film going experience. But it's not like the price is that prohibitively expensive. I'd likely spend $40 to $50 on dinner when going out to a movie anyway. If anything, by ordering food in the theater it sorta reduces the cost because I'm not going to what might be a much more expensive restaurant to eat.


I will say that the one negative with regard to the food ordering is that it does distract a bit from the movie experience. They tend to still be taking orders and delivering food while the previews are playing and even sometimes into the first few minutes of the feature. Which is less than ideal. I want to be totally settled before the film starts, and they don't always do that right. Again though, you don't have to order any food or drinks.

I'm surprised y'all didn't like this more, to be completely honest.

I loved it. I was laughing the entire movie, Loki was awesome, Thor and Jane were both solid. Good action sequences. It was absolutely gorgeous.

It's my #2 for Marvel movies, now, after Avengers.

Personal bias. Not a particular fan of Thor's to begin with. The movie wasn't really going to change that. The uber-power tier kind of bores me, which is my main complaint about Superman and most of DC's lineup.

Oh yeah, that typically drives me insane.

And it's why I was generally least interested in Thor. But I liked how we saw the immortals getting their asses handed to them, which made Thor feel like he had real limits.
