    Saw this yesterday...will have more thoughts on it, but Doc, you are too harsh about Hogun. It wasn't a great performance but it wasn't a complete red light either. The one thing that stuck out most to me...why, in these supposedly enlightened times, was the one brother in the movie basically was a glorified doorman. Shameful.

    Well I don't think he killed the movie or anything and I certainly didn't hate the movie (in fact I liked it)...

    but every scene with those characters seemed incredibly forced to me. Part of it was that I didn't believe Ray Stevenson, part of it was that I didn't believe Tadanobu Asano.

    Sue me. (Nope... not even funny when I say it... )

    How dare you sir...Ray Stevenson is untouchable!!!! Now you have gone too far!

    I grudgingly admit that those characters were clumsily handled.

    They were stock character sidekicks, guys. What'd you want from them?

    But they were used to propel the story...so yeah, they were a little too one-dimensional considering how they were used.

    Believability...


    Look I get it... that movie had an impossible job and I think they did about as good a job as humanly possible.

    I still haven't seen it! :(

    Somebody wrote online that Kat Dennings is pretty much just lame comic relief. True?

    Probably.

    I still like her though!

    Overall I thought the movie was decent but I wish they'd do away with cliche dialogue. For example, the fight between the brothers at the end. Of course Loki says something like, "Maybe I'll pay her a visit." and of course Thor takes the bait. Or how about, "Someday I'll make you proud". "You've already made me proud". I hate it when I know the lines before they're spoken.

    And you want to talk about pointless casting, how about Rene Russo? She had fewer lines than Drago in Rocky IV.

    Mostly unrelated, but I found this headline absolutely hysterical.
