I also found Thor's lack of reaction after to be strange.

On the flip side, the funeral scene was outstanding. It looked fantastic.
I agree, the sequence looks great. It is just kinda hollow.

He went after Malekith for Jane. If he had listened to his father she'd be dead, but Malekith would have never got the Aether.

I am not asking for super amounts of grief. I am asking for him to not seem so damn casual when confronted with Malekith.

Loki was able to get both of his jobs done while still showing the effect of what has happened to him. Odin as well, though it isn't paid much attention.

And if we are talking the maturation of Thor, he wouldn't have been sulking for the past two years over Jane while he had a job to do protecting the Nine Realms. He wouldn't have left Asgard at the end, the one place available to him that can give him access to actually protect all Nine Realms.

Isn't that interesting. I want to protect the Nine Realms. But I am going to do it by stranding myself on Earth...
