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

I thought it was all a little heavy-handed and obvious. But that's true of the whole beginning of the movie. There's a lot more spontaneity once Thor gets to earth. I imagine that's partly why Act II was more the focus of preview footage.

On the whole, that scene works ok to establish Thor's arrogance, but even with some very good actors to sell the material, it barely works.

Thor is a weird movie. Feels cheap, like the budget was stretched really thin. Lots of characters running around in little bunches. Bizarre mix of tones. Somehow it works, though. Hemsworth and Hiddleston are a big part of that. They are both really good. Can't wait for Thor 2.
