Default Re: What didn't you like about T:TDW?

Firgga's Death. they tried to make it dramatic, but she was the least developed character so it had no impact on me. Also it seemed just a way to get Thor to go after Malekith.

Contiunally stopping to explain the Convergance and Aether over and over.

Selvig. Everything about him was just juvenile comedy.

The simple comedy. jokes deisgned for cheap laughs like the phone call on the Dark World, Captain America ect..

Portman kind of phoned it in.

The Earth subplot. i didn't care about their scientific stuff or the budding romance between Darcy and her toyboy.

Loki dying then coming straight back minutes later, MCU keeps pulling this crap.

Malekith, he ws nothing, and his henchmen guy pretty much just the muscle to be pointed at the hero for the sake of a scrap.

Seeing the big shock moments coming because they were predictable.

The humour fell short. Thor having to get a train back to the final undercut any importance to that fight.

Ultimately though, nothing happens in this movie. The character's do not change or learn anything. Their relationships do not change and the main characters are essentially in the same place at the end of the movie as they were in the beginning.
Agreed on both points. For the big battle it kept being interupted for Darcy or Jane and when it was action it was more or less just falling.

Twist was the biggest problem, not the only problem
