    Tim Blake Nelson was the Kat Dennings of Hulk, the difference being that he had a serious and significant role to play & didn't seem to realise it.

    Lol, okay. It was more of a question for the writers.

    No. I mentioned that the action was superb and, other than Portman and the other girl, the acting is good,, specially Loki and Odin. Now, if we're talking about the jokes, that killed big part of the movie for me, because some of the most important themes of the movie passed through terrible jokes. But everything Asgard was quite good actually.

    I find Thor better than Spiderman 3, IM2, TIH and the first Spiderman actually (which was partially ruined by this very kind of humour also).

    It worked excellent in Iron Man 1 & 2 and Kick Ass. Green Hornet by comparison was a comedy take on the superhero genre rather than a superhero film that had some comedy in it.

    Yeah, but you need Robert Downey Jr for that. Or Michael Caine. Just few actors can make bad jokes work. The rest fails most of times. Portman and her friend in the movie did every single time.

    Now Kick Ass the movie felt as much of a comedy as Green Hornet.

    I know. And I'm saying that's the only time I've seen it's actually worked.



    Ok.

    The humor works alot better than it looks like it goes in Green Lantern.

    From the trailers I cringed at the jokes, but in the film they work really well.
    Darcy calling Mjolnir meowmeow (or something like that) cracked me up, as its something we all dunno how to pronounce really.

    When Thor goes into the pet shop asking for a horse and the shop keeper says he only has dogs and stuff is good
    "Well get me the biggest one I can ride!"

    I enjoyed the humor, sure serious is good but Iron Man pulls out the jokes aswell, can't all be dark and serious, a mix of light and dark for me please.

    Iron Man can get away with it because of RDJ.

    The horse joke is pretty funny taken on it's own. Probably exactly what Thor would have done.

    I think Thor can too, he is a man not of this world, so things he might say to him is normal but to us could be seen as funny or odd.

    I agree with this. I liked the movie by the way, I was just expecting a bit more of the fight scenes from later on the movie, I liked the earlier action secuence better, but I had a great ride nonetheless; I also liked the mix of humor and seriouness, it reminded me of Iron Man 1 (note I am not saying is exactly like that, but it reminded me of it); and as big a fan I am of TDK I have no prob with comic book films interjecting humour inbetween, not overdone but in general I was content with the way Thor turned out.

    But he's not Robert Downey Jr. You see, it's not as much about the character but about the actor and his talent.
