    The dude can turn on the charm

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

    When he was spinning that hammer, and popped a little smirk, that's a god I get behin-wait

    a god I can throw down wit-

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

    I'm a trained detective.

    There's one other forumer who loves it, too

    I want to say Fandy

    It starts with an F

    I agree with that article. Especially since they sabotage the weight of that ending a bit when
    at the end of the credits they say THOR WILL RETURN IN THE AVENGERS

    I think that's where it could have gone, if it was like

    a good movie.

    But as it was, it *was* a movie where he
    fell in love with Natalie Portman just because she was the female lead
    . I like the line of thought in that link, that story would have been way more interesting.

    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.

    Though they cover their bases saying
    there's more than one entrance to Asgard.

    I mean, I know Loki says it, but it is a quick fix

    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 agree with that article 100%, pertaining to their different ending, but I am sure the reason it didn't happen was because
    it will be a plot point in The Avengers. They will probably figure out Loki is behind the Skrulls and then contact Asgard for help, allowing Thor to save the team at a dramatic moment.

    Well maybe I'm stretching but it seemed to me that
    she was smarter and better at dealing with shit then most people around her, as opposed to just being a viking lady who drinks and eats and fights. I'm not saying its a super deep romance, but he respects her. Also shes attractive, maybe he didn't grow up THAT much.

    Regarding Thor-Jane
    It's shown at the end that Sif is dissapointed that he's taken by this girl from Midgard. Thor has been living in Asgard for thousands of years. Relationships probably move a hell of a lot slower up there. Thor is a take-action, live in the moment kind of guy. Which is exactly what Jane does. She's new & interesting & moves more at his pace.

    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.
