You can't forget the Frost Giant battle, but that's good to hear I read a review that said their fight was one of the action highlights.

Did Thor pull off some epic attacks in this film, like some serious holy ship he's bass moments?

There was nothing wrong with Malekith as a villain per se, but in hindsight I'm surprised that Eccleston took the role, unless the script originally had more for him to do. Make of that what you will.

The humour was great - some real laugh out loud moments. To be honest, at one point I just couldn't believe how much comedy was actually in the film, but it all worked great. Only one or two moments in and around the final battle where it felt slightly out of place, but all in all it's easily got the best comedy of any of the Marvel films to date.
It sounds like Malekith will be very similar to Hugo's Redskull which is fine by me, how would you rank Malekith among other MCU villains?

As for the humor is there really just too much humor or was it just a case of it being more than you expected?

Yeah, I loved the Frost Giant battle, but this particular fight just felt a bit more of a "ground and pound".

He had his moments. I can't imagine anyone is going to be disappointed, at least. In truth, I was so in awe throughout the whole film, that I can't specifically remember a particular moment where has was proper bad ass. They were in there, I was just having a nerdgasm for too long to properly notice

In truth, beyond Loki, I've never been too impressed with the villains in the Marvel films. Only Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 3 have really impressed me with how much they've made me want their villains beaten.

As far as scifi villains go, I'd probably say Malekith actually feels very similar to Nero from Star Trek 09. Not in character, but just in how he effects the whole movie.

It was a pleasant surprise for me, personally. There's one scene that is right up there with the funniest scenes I've seen in any film period. Takes place at a certain British landmark...you'll know it when you see it

I guess, think Avengers level of comedy, but for me it felt a lot more natural than a lot of the jokes in Avengers. Between this, and the humour in Iron Man 3, I dare say Marvel fell in love with Joss' comedy style in Avengers and have just adopted it for all their films.

Surtur was rumored to be in this early on. Is there an appearance or reference to him?

I'd rather not. Whilst I very much doubt Disney will come track me down if I do, I feel like I'd be ****ting over the good nature of the screening they put on that I was able to go to.

Few days, and all will be revealed

Woah I'm loving the sound of this.

Oh okay so he's not a bad villain, just an average one. Now how would you assess him power wise, like is he an extremely powerful character.?

Cool I'm perfectly fine with Avengers level of comedy especially since you say it feels more natural.

Yeah! I would like to know this as well... For anyone who saw the film or @kylethomaswest, is Surtur mentioned because I'm sure someone said that there are fire demons at the start with the Marauders.

It would be a missed opportunity if Surtur isn't mentioned because they had the perfect set-up especially when you have Malekith.

To be honest, my knowledge of the Thor comics isn't good enough to have picked up on any references to that character, or if he appeared, etc.

Does the film offer any insight of what more we can expect from the rest of Phase II? How many post-credit scenes are there? Are they good? And finally, are they connected to the world of Thor or is it more of a teaser to another MCU movie like Guardians of the Galaxy?

It was an illusion. It was meant to trick Malekith.

I'd like to see Marvel start giving their non-Loki villains more depth. They're so good at making these films, but they struggle to make compelling villains. At best, most of them are ok. Also, is the Benicio del Toro rumor true?

Killing was a good villain in my books, Mandarin twist or no Mandarin twist.

Loki is Odin in disguise and gives permission for Thor to go to Earth. Apparently, we do not know Odin's fate.

I give it a C.
How were the Elves? As a whole and the main two. Do Malekith and Kurse stand out more than the others?
