Loki actually did care for Frigga still has his mother and that her death is what triggered him wanting to get rid of Dark Elves, or it being one of his reasons for doing so?
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

There's no question in my mind, no matter what he said within the film, that he cared deeply for Frigga. His reaction to her death and the following scene afterwards when Thor goes to see him afterwards paint that picture.

Him wanting to help Thor get rid of the Dark Elves does have to do with Frigga but I also think it has to do with Loki figuring out the situation that Thor finds himself in and takes advantage of it. Again, it's just never really clear but because he's the God of Mischief, you can assume a lot because it's clear that Loki's all about the mind games when it comes to Thor and the entire situation.

The film, sometimes, just isn't clear enough but you can make up your own assumptions in order to logically figure out how we get the ending that we get.

It's not really a flaw of the film but it kind of is.

Do not be surprised if Catching Fire hits 180 million opening weekend. Not even kidding. That thing is going to make serious coin.
What do they call Hunger Games in Japan?

Battle Royale with cheese.

Another good scene that establishes that is when Loki and Frigga speaks in his cell. I guess it's her doing a projection, but it could theoretically also be Loki that created it. His emotional reaction is what speaks for him rather than his words.

I don't see why the movie would be more clear on Loki's motivation. I find it very obvious that he's both after revenge and to escape the cell for his own mischievous ends, especially after seeing his heroic actions on Svartalfheim which are uncharacteristic for him. By being clearer they'd cross the line for me and they would also remove any possible worries that Loki might just betray Thor.

Just thought I'd share this with you guys. It is a very tongue in cheek "critique" of the first Thor movie to coincide with the release of The Dark World.

I'd agree with that. I end to see the flick again to really break this aspect down of the film.

That is not the nerd way. You either like one thing and dismiss the rest, or you don't like nothing at all.

Personal preference in my case. I don't want to see Card succeed.

OSC signed away the rights to this movie decades ago. He isn't involved with, nor making one red cent from this release.

Regarding Loki's motivations:


Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
In the very first part of the movie when Odin is sentencing him, he asks specifically about Thor and the throne. He even called him an oaf if I remember correctly. LOL Odin said yes, after Thor gets the 9 realms under control, he'll become King. This pissed Loki right off. He is full of hatred and anger and rage and jealousy. I think he has 3 motivations here but they all tied together. First, he loathes the idea of Thor as King of Asgard. Second, he wants out of his cell. Eternity reading books isn't what he has in mind. Third, Frigga dies and he wants revenge (I'm sure there is a bit of guilt since he told Kurse where to go...) In the end he's given the perfect opportunity to get all 3 and adding as the cherry on top, claiming the throne via faking he's Odin and giving Thor what he wants.

His book is number one again. He's definitely making money off this release.

He's part of the press tour promoting the movie. If you think he's not making money of it ..you're wrong

Forgiving me for believing the hundreds of news stories circling the globe reporting otherwise.
