Few things:

Was that a Banner referance for the scientist that shield got a hold of then dissapeared that was mentioned?

Give me a little info on this cube?

And is this a depiction of Thors true power? ANd if so how does he fit into the avenger movie with being so much more powerful then any of the other avengers thatI know of, I mean he is even more powerful then the hulk, let alone iron man, cap or hawk eye. Seems he doesnt need anyone but himself, unless the villian is so powerful to chalenge him...but that would make the other useless and just around to die lol

 

Thoughts?

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think I caught a Disney reference in the film (which makes sense since Disney owns Marvel).

When Thor is naming off the nine realms to Jane, I am pretty sure he lists Anaheim as one of the realms (like Anaheim, CA, the location of Disney Land).  I am pretty sure there is an Alfheim but not an Anaheim in Marvel continuity.

I have a feeling this reference may have been missed by most, since it is a Disney reference instead of a Marvel reference, but as a father who also grew up watching Disney, I couldn't help but notice it.

If you are going to see this movie (again or for the first time), please confirm I heard this right.

It was FANTASTIC!!!!!

Don't read Thor comics, so I don't know how accurate it was to the source material, and I don't care. I'm gonna go see it again this week! I loved it!

Lots of cool easter eggs (Journey into Mystery billboard)

And a great extra scene!!!

I didn't go see it in 3-D. I wear glasses, and 3-D sucks if you wear glasses.

Hey dude, you didn't hear Anaheim. It sounds pretty close to it, but he said Vanaheim. It is the home of the Vanir who are the sister race of the Asgardians. Vanaheim is a distinct region on the Asgard planetoid.

So, I live in alabama and just got the 'net back. Saw Thor at a midnight showing Thursday, and realize I'm a few days behind.

First, all credit goes to Kenneth Brannagh for bringing such a film to screen. You've already heard people say, in terms of story continuity/belivability(sp?) Thor would be hardest because he's a God. Brannagh gave it a great touch, and I've always liked his films. He did such a commendable job with bringing it to the screen.

Acting was spot-on; everyone felt natural in their character, though I wish a few actors could have been used for a few more lines, specifically rene russo and/or any of the fabled four. Chris Hemsworth brought arrogance and charm and a touch of buffoon to his role, and I think makes a great Thor. Hiddleston was great as Loki and brought him a more sinister side than I'd expected.

Effects were great, nothing to complain about, and I saw it in 3d by default. It didn't harm or bother me save for the darker image, but the landscapes of Asgard were beautiful, so was the 'bridge'.

Here's the thing though-I saw it in a pretty full theater, not totally but about 3/4, and people laughed when the funny parts came on, but there was maybe one truly 'oooh' moment the whole time, but other than that, the movie felt flat, I don't know how else to say it. It was just as if you watched it, enjoyed what they did with it, but it just feels as though it was the movie that gets put out so we know who Thor is for the Avengers film to work. I don't read the comics of Thor, but have known him and seen him since childhood, so I'm not sure if the Frost Giants are canon, but they were meh at best. No offense to Colm Feore, but he's gotta stop picking up the phone when someone says "snarky evil villian needed".

I can't fault anyone really. Thor is a good movie. It has a simple story, great acting, and decent effects. I'd rank it below Iron Man and Incredible Hulk, but above say Origins, X-3, and Iron Man 2.

I was holding my breath thinking Green Lantern was going to suck, but I dare say it may be a bigger hit than Thor is in the U.S. I don't see Thor doing anything more than maybe 175 at most. If I'm wrong I'm wrong, but it doesn't feel like it will have enough time or legs to do that. Good luck to the cast.

 Just seen it and it was pretty good and a lot better than what I thought it would be.  Thought that Destroyer thing looked like a Power Ranger villain from the trailer but he worked in the film just fine. I would've preferred the entire film set in Asgard as I thought all the characters and that world to be much more interesting than the Earth stuff.  Btw, did they call Hawkeye by his name and I missed it cause how else were we suppose to know that Renner is Hawkeye?

Oh, and it took Thor three days to fall in love and become worthy?  That mofo is a quick learner yo.

Hanso, they called him Barton I believe, as they do in the cartoons sometimes, his real name being Clint Barton. Or Cliff but I think it's Clint.

hanso 5/7/2011 4:54:48 PM

 Ah ok, guess I missed it when they called him that.  Thanks Mr. Jaw.

I don't recall anyone calling Clint by name but Coulson did say "I want "Eyes" up high", which seemed to me that he meant Hawkeye but could also be taken as a general saying

 

Btw, did anyone catch any of the easter eggs from Asgard's weapons vault. Looked like the Gauntlet of Infinity and the Warlock's Eye but I really couldn't catch it all. Something looked like it was missing, maybe the Cosmic Cube? I wish I could pause the film
