THOR and THOR: THE DARK WORLD by the Numbers | Collider
Decent numbers...anyone see it?
I saw Thor this weekend.
Liked it, didn't love it. Natalie Portman was slightly less annoying this time, so that was good and there were a few decent comedy bits. The story overall was a little weak, but it was still a fun movie.
I do have a couple gripes I'll make audible once the spoiler period passes.
Thor was enjoyable for the most part, like Adgy-san there are a few parts that bothered me I will hold off discussing till the spoiler period ends.
I thought Thor was pretty damned good. A LOT of story packed in there. More sci-fi than I expected. As a huge proponent of monster fx and real makeup I cannot rave ENOUGH about how cool it was that the KURSEd was in almost the whole movie. Straight outta Hellboy:The Golden Army. Thought Alan Taylor did a good job minimalizing a lot of the potential pitfalls. Thor/Jane's complete lack of chemistry, the comic relief earthbound characters, Thor's/Helmsworth's inherent cheesiness. Loki was a huge strength. For me, a far better sequel than either Iron Man one simply because it expanded the characters universe which with Asgard is not the easiest thing to do. Entertaining. The during/post credits scene were telling too. Especially the James Gunn directed Benicio Del Toro/Collector scene. Man, Guardians is going to be tonally and visually different than anything we have seen so far.
BTW, maybe it's my Chuck fixation, but the warriors 3/Sif deserve a bigger part(LOVE RAY STEVENSON). Looks like with the midcredits scene they may play in to the eventual
Infinity Gauntlet storyline. So that's good.

I saw Thor over the weekend and thought it was pretty good. I know im in the minority here but i dont get the love for Kat Dennings. She just annoys me. Except for the Mjolnir line, that made me laugh.
So whats the Collector's story. That dude seems a bit odd.

Bob...see Boobs, Dennings.
The Collector scene was a tie in to Guardians of the Galaxy and the eventual Thanos/Infinity Gauntlet movie. It's really a long setup for Marvel. The director complained that it was oddly placed(and it was). It is one of those 'needs explanation' things, but Marvel isn't afraid to shoehorn in a geekster egg. I actually thought the post credits scene was kinda cute(hope you stuck around for that).
