    I consider myself to typically be pretty immune to silly movie star charm, but honestly.

    The entire Renner cameo made me bummed that no one but me watched The Unusuals

    There's one other forumer who loves it, too

    I want to say Fandy

    He’s a thousand years old, and he’s known her for maybe 48 hours. This is the equivalent of you or I having a nice conversation with someone on a short flight; it’s a blip in Thor’s total timeline.

    Well, man, you wouldn't believe some of the short flights I've had
    since Thor exists only as an introduction to the character for Marvel’s The Avengers

    Uh, no
    It was a pretty solid movie in its own right

    Should also be pointed out that pretty much all of the actors signed on before there was a script, and only because of Branagh.

    Yeah. Honestly, I didn't think anyone's acting was bad. There wasn't a single person in the film that made me go, oh wow. It was just all the things they were saying. And doing.

    I buy that Thor characterization more than the Thor characterization in Thor.

    I also hope that all the Avenger's women get left out of The Avengers, cause gosh how is that not going to be a really crowded movie.

    The reason Hulk isn't higher, TLB, is because upon recent re-watching I realized how much I hate the Betty/Banner scenes. They draaaag.

    I enjoyed Tony and Pepper and Thor and Jane much more because the dialogue was clever and the actors had great chemistry. I liked Norton of course but oh my god fuck Liv Tyler.

    On the flip side, Hulk did have the best villains.

    And that is my sticking point.

    Disagree!

    Loki is the best Marvel villain.

    Jeff Bridges is also better than Tim Roth.

    Hulk had the best fight scenes. And only because they were really long and super brutal. If the Thor and Pals fight scene lasted longer Thor would have that too.

    I'm really glad that all these Marvel movies have a god damned sense of humor. That was my main problem with the Ang Lee Hulk movie, that it was so fucking grim.

    Ross and Blonsky were more effective than Loki.
