You can't change the world, but you can make a dent
Thoughts on Thor 2
Loki (Tom Hiddleston) stole Thor’s thunder. As far as I’m concerned, it’s Loki’s show masquerading as a Thor movie. You gotta respect classically trained actors who can recite Shakespeare lines in a heartbeat or mimic velociraptors–because they can act and not only because they’re hot/adorable.
Am I the only one who thinks that Thor/Chris Hemsworth sounds like Silvester Stallone with British accent?
What’s the point again of adding this character, Ian?
On Loki’s cake-y makeup: I don’t know where to start complaining. Trust my rage.
I think the saddest part of the film is when Loki learns of his adoptive mother’s death.
The film is a cross between sci-fi (hello, invisible space ships!) and fantasy/mythology.
My problem with the love angle is the lack of chemistry between Hemsworth and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster).
Oh look! It’s Chris O’Dowd (of The IT Crowd fame) as a cutie, thus a love triangle amongst demigod and humans is formed. Oh wait, there’s the bit about the lady warrior, too.
Some fights scenes are awkward. Choreography is good, but execution is something else. I’m talking about you Jamie Alexander and dude from Chuck.
On Benicio Del Torro’s appearance as The Collector on the first end-credits teaser, it’s interesting; and it’s interesting in a he-looks-like-David-Bowie-gone-rough manner.
End-credits teasers basically are set-ups for Guardians of the Galaxy and the next Avenger movie.
As Alan Carr said, I didn’t understand what’s going on, but I loved it. One has to start watching the film as an attempt at mixing astrophysics, sci-fi, and fantasy. It can be utterly confusing, so just enjoy the joy ride. Here, enjoy his interview on Chatty Man:
