Love hearing this. 'Tis why I loved the Avengers so much and sounds like I'm gonna get more of it here. No surprise Joss lent some of his Whedonesque to this one.

Humour was MUCH better balanced than Iron Man 3. Selvig is an absolute riot in this film but thankfully not overused.

I liked Malekith just being petty when he takes an implosion grenade from a soldier and chucks it at Odin's throne. Just because.

Loki, pretty much everything to do with Loki.
Thor, pretty much everything to do with Thor.
Heimdall getting to be awesome.
Frigga getting more to do, Rene Russo was great.
The action.
The tease towards GOTG.

Like? Oh my!

I loved Thor. I swear Chris Hemsworth was born to play this role and he did it as well as it could have been done. I do think he's wanting to spread his wings but give us 3 more films. Please!

Loved Jane. Tolerated Darcy and Ian. Loved Selvig.

Loved Frigga. HELL YEAH MAMA!!!!!

Malekith and Kurse were sufficient baddies.

Special effects. Holy crap were they good. YES PLEASE!!!! His battle with Kurse and then Malekith were soooooooooooooo good.

Also direction. I think Taylor had his eye on the prize and it was good. I know he's limited with Feige but he did fantabulous with what he had to work with.

Loved the Warriors 2(If you have seen the movie, you will know what I mean) and Sif's loyalty to Thor, although they didn't do too much, Thor probably wouldn't have gotten very far without them.

The Special Effects are great!

Unlike most people apparently, I really liked the comedy. Everyone made it sound as if there was a joke every 30 seconds. After watching it I found it strange, because there were far fewer funny scenes than I thought.

The certain Cameo!!! That was funny as ****!

Almost every character got an awesome moment, even if it was brief.

Malekith was not that bad, just sort of one dimensional, maybe if they kept the Bor flashback...

Loki was great! Especially his iterations with Thor and Frigga! Hell, his interactions with anyone else!

Probably stuff I forgot... I will update if I remember.

Rock, can you really complain when you have spent most of your time in the other thread? Especially when the idea behind the two threads were to allow those that want to gush or complain could have their own little place to meet, without having to argue whether their points are valid or not. And then you spend your time in the other thread, arguing over it.

I'm not defending anything at the moment. This board has been monopolized by a minority opinion over 3-4 different threads. This has nothing to do with my own personal opinion because I have yet to see the movie, but the one I pointed out on Rotten Tomatoes.

You guys are freakin' relentless ........ I mean it's like a campaign. It proves my point that anyone negative about something is far more likely to keep repeating themselves than someone with something positive to say.

It's obviously true since you complain about people who criticise.

Damn petty human.

No but seriously, it's not like one "enjoys" complaining. Why do you think that? Most of the time it's a matter of having to explain yourself time and time again because some people just can't accept that some others didn't like something as much as them.

Only time I've spoken up in the other thread is concerning blatantly PETTY reasoning. Let's not even begin to act like it's my posting throughout all 5 pages of that thing.

I mean I went out for drinks tonight with friends for 5 hours on a Saturday night.... came back, it's 2:30am and the same people who haven't liked the film or the ones worried about it are STILL posting the same things they posted 4-5 days ago. It's sad.

BigThor, I don't think that is fair. Especially when one of the reasons why the other thread has so much traction is that many are in there arguing over the merits of the film. If you could simply post what you didn't like without having to justify it, like you can pretty much do in this thread, then I don't think it would be so much bigger.

Here is an example.

This thread.
"I love the final battle."

"I agree, it is awesome."

The other thread.
"I didn't love the comedy."

"Didn't you see the ads, there was always going to be comedy."

See how one would spark more discourse?

Don't you think the reason for that is whenever someone criticises something, some people react with "You're a hater!!" or "You're biased, you just want Nolan movies!!" ?

Actually, most of the repeating is due to having to explain yourself all the time when people attack you!

Also, most of the "complaints" that you're complaining about is in a thread that's dedicated to what people didn't like about the film, that you created yourself and that you have posted several times in (meaning: you can't really whine about the amount of pages when you youself contribute to it).

But I do think you have more post in that thread then this one. Now you might find the reasoning petty but I thought the idea for the two threads were to allow each side to discuss what they either liked or didn't without what happened in the fan review thread? You are not asking people in this thread to justify themselves.

That is absurd. You guys have had the run of this board for the last week.

Enjoy it while it lasts ...... hope you feel you've accomplished something.
