Default Re: What about the movie was actually better than the comics, and what was worse?

When Loki says 'Damn' in that '****s about to go down' way it is reminiecent of all cliche action movies ever. You might as well have him say 'It's on', its the same thing and out of character.

Then there was all the tough guy stuff coming out of Thor's mouth like 'Next' and 'At least make this a challenge for me'. I was cringing, it was an 80's Arnie movie at that point.
That all worked really well for me because at that point in the story, Thor is a giant douchebag. Plus, he was looking for an excuse to fight them and that frost giant's "princess" line gave him one. It has nothing to do with women's rights.
