  1. I’m amazed they didn’t use that song before now. I like the look of the film and Cate Blanchett is a living Elven goddess. But I’ve been worried about the tone of this since the announcement of Waititi as director. I liked The Hunt for the Wilderpeople and shrugged at What We Do In The Shadows. Thor’s line about knowing the Hulk “from work” feels wrong for the character. It’s in line with the comedy sketches featuring Thor released over the past year, but I don’t think that’s where the comedy of the character lies. Thor’s funny when he smashes a coffee cup after emptying it before shouting for another. I suspect this movie will make fun of Thor rather than fun with him.

  3. Mark Delsing, Odin’s beard! That was terrible. I think they did more damage to the set than each other, Mjölnir doesn’t return to Thor’s hand, and then Joe-Rando picks up the hammer? Very unrealistic. Plus, where’s Natalie Portman?

  5. Inspired by you, Mark Delsing, I re-watched the original Thor movie tonight. Still holds up! The key is to pay attention to Loki’s motivations. Really quite good for a Marvel movie. It also helps if you pretend like the end-of-credits scene doesn’t exist (tonally inconsistent, and undercuts the theme of the rest of the movie; sort of like hitting someone with a gut punch and then saying, “just kidding!”).
