    I still want to see Source Code. It's getting bagged by people, but after Moon, i'll see anything Duncan Jones directs.

    Man it sucks that so many people have gotten the chance to watch the film already.lol

    I have so many FINALS due for my college courses next week, so it's somewhat poetic justice that I have to go through hell before being able to see Thor.lol

    Abolutely love all of this that's going on at the moment. I think it's pretty safe to say that Branagh [and thus Marvel] have hit this one out of the park.

    So pleased.

    Saw the film on Monday (advanced showing) and plan on seeing it again Friday. Excellent film in almost every way. A solid 9/10 from me.

    My only complaint would be
    The Destroyer fight near the end was a little underwhelming when Thor retrieved his Hammer, although it was still awesome to just to see it fight the other asgardians.
    Oh, and the trailers I saw were PotC, X-men First class (trailer 1), and Captain America. No adverts either, couldn't of turned out better. :D

    Here's another negative, from a guy who basically does nothing but explain the entire plot - This is London - Good fun for boys, then, from 10 to 12. - 2/5 stars

    I saw the movie last night. It was good but not great. I enjoyed it and will be seeing it again tomorrow night.

    I did like Thor's powers that were full on display but I had the feeling the movie was a big set up for the next chapter and not its own entity.

    Saw this film for the 4th time.

    I cant wait for the banter between Thor and Star and to see goldilocks go one on one with the green ogre. The avengers as a team are so characteristically different, seeing the team dynamic trying to get along is worth watching all by itself.

    I don't think many(if any at all) are registered with RT. RT doesn't get every review there is of a film but only critics who are registered and meet their criteria.

    That's one of the things that'll really set them apart from stuff like the X-Men or Fantastic Four for the general audience.

    Just watched the film earlier today and I had a blast watching it. I was entertained throughout the whole film thanks to the script, the visual effects (Asgard looks stunning as hell) and the performances especially by Hemsworth and Hiddleston, who both completely embodies their respective characters.

    Overall, the movie delivers everything I expected and more. I'm already excited to watch the movie again.

    4/5

    Caught the movie Monday night and absolutely adored it. And that's coming from someone who's never read a Thor book and has never been particularly enthused enthused with the character. Acting, writing and direction were all top notch (With Branagh actually being suprisingly adept at the action scenes)
    This film is easily on par with Iron Man as Marvels best film so far.

    One question: Why is this comig out so late in the US? It arrived in my local theatre on Sunday night...

    Saw it yesterday and it was good. It didn't catch me like other movies, but I wasn't bored either...I would rate it with 6/10.

    But 3D was not worth the extra money for the ticket! Only 2-3 scenes were quite nice 3D (one beeing the end credits) but for the most time the movie wasn't really different from 2D...

    Having been underwhelmed by Marvel's last effort, Iron Man 2, I went in this with few expectations, amongst them one of mild disappointment. Before, my interest in the character of Thor was as minimal as it could get. But Thor really impressed me. The story and writing were spot-on, as were the characters and gags, the latter of which I wasn't expecting and got lots of laughs.

    Above all, Hemsworth wasn't as cringe-worthy as I'd feared. I suffered through his wooden acting for too long when I used to watch Home and Away way back when, so I was glad to see he's improved here. No doubt Branagh whipped him into shape. They made Thor relatable. Yet Hiddleston stole his thunder, pun intended, every time the two were on-screen. Looking forward to seeing him in The Avengers. And I was caught completely off-guard by not so much a blink-and-miss cameo as a super-glorified one of a certain someone. That was an awesome surprise.

    This definitely ranks up there with Iron Man, if not higher, and serves to further excite me for Captain America, which I hope is half as good as either of them.

    45 reviews on Rottentomatoes and it's still in the 90% percentile.

    Yeah Loki was awesome! Hiddleston's performance was nuanced and never ever OTT even when he was cutting loose with his anger and rage at Odin and Thor.

    I am so glad that Loki is now going to try and take hold of the cosmic cube. Seeing that and hearing Jackson's fury talk about myth and history sent goosebumps down my spine. Oh and Hawkeye was awesome to see too!

    Elba was awesome too! A very solid film and I expect great things from captain america and once CA is released my excitement for the avengers will be too much to contain.

    Branagh did a great job introducing Thor properly in anticipation of The Avengers. The part that I like is the when it delves on the relationship Thor has between Odin and Thor. Hemsworth did well and Hiddleston's performance as Loki is just superb. The film has a good balance to the tone, the comedy element is not off-putting and is actually complement well to the Iron Man movies, also the action does not disappoint either. DAT after-the credits scene. :wow:

    4/5
