Picoreview: Thor: The Dark World  

Picoreview: Thor: The Dark World (spoiler-free):

Thor thor thor thor Loki Thor Loki Thor Loki Thor Loki Thor thor thor thor loki Loki LOKI Loki loki thor thor thor Loki Loki Loki LOKI thor

Stay through ALL THE CREDITS, people. ALL THE CREDITS. One does not simply walk out of a Marvel movie before the credits are done rolling!

(not spoilery but not without an opinion behind the cut):

There were bits I thought were kind of awful, but they were not the bits with, er, anybody except the Space Elves. In fact, all the bits without Space Elves were pretty goddamn awesome, and the layered storytelling in Thor and Loki’s story, OMG!

I will write more of a review, maybe, when I’m sure the movie has opened in America. :)

Yeah, it's premiering in the U.S. Thursday night.

Your picoreview has only stoked my anticipation of the Thor Loki marathon as well. :> I'm really glad to hear that the bits with Loki and Thor are as good as they seem like they should be just from the varying previews I've been seeing. *squee*

I'm seeing it on Friday, in 3-D.

Very much looking forward. I want the Space Elves to be good, though, because Christopher Eccleston.

Well, in so far as they go he's fine, it's just that I didn't think they were a good idea and were then a not especially well implemented execution of a not very good idea. Other people's mileage may vary. :)

Agreed! Did you think the two after the credits scenes should be swapped?
kitmizkit on November 16th, 2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
Sort of! The second one was charming and sweet and would hae made a nice little mid-credits cap while leaving the first one till the very end would have kept it bit more in keeping with the "at the very last moment we will give you something that feeds into the next movies" of (most) of the other films.

OTOH, the romping troll puppy was like the best way ever to end it, so I'm glad they did that :)

Yes, the romping troll puppy puts smiles on everyone's faces!
