I plan on buyin this anyway.

I think the Lionsgate/Marvel toons have had mixed results from very good to mediocre. I wouldn't call any of them bad but there's definite room for improvement. DC has been better in general but even they haven't been living up to past animated films recently.

Well hopefully Marvel's animated fair stays in-house and Disney invests the proper monies to get the right talent, animation and bring better stories to the brand

 I think a C is generous.  This was poorly animated and a garbage of a story.  I'm holding out high hopes for Emerald Knights and can't wait for the Batman: Year One and Dark Knight animated.

So far, Marvel's best has been Hulk Vs.   DC has them beat on the animated front for sure.

I can't wait to see what Disney does with these characters.

I picked this movie up, and was unimpressed.  I believe that this is the final entry in the Lionsgate/Marvel team.  The original license was for eight movies, and there was never any public announcment that the contract had been extended.  I'm sure there will be more releases from Marvel Animation, but they will surely be done through Disney.  With any luck, this will mean a bump in the quality of animation and voice actors.  Now all they need to do is sort out their storytelling.  Maybe take a queue from DC and go with movies based on graphic novels.  Either that, or do more Vs. stories.

 "Tales between their legs," Is that an editorial mistake, or a play on words instead of "tails???"

Invisioner...definitely tongue-in-cheek play on words.  As mentioned the Warriors Three were not really going on adventures but merely stopping at this tavern and stealing the tales they overheard at other tables to tell the Asgardians back home, claiming them as their own.

 Totally agree with article.  With the vast canon of amazing storylines for Thor, it begs the question why?  A story about a teen Thor....seriously, who is asking for that?  How about taking any random story arc from Walt Simonson's run and giving the people what they want.  

And I hate these making of documentaries where the creators are going into their process of how they are making the Citizen Kane of animated features, as you sit and watch thinking  "Why are you trying to put a misguided 'fresh' spin on characters everyone loves?  Fans don't want to see "Teen Avengers", they want The Avengers.  They don't want Teen Thor, they want Thor.
