I hope Disney plans to rethinks how they are to approach Marvel movies in the future. Thor II was not at all up to par with past movies and it could have been much more than what was finally released. If that is the best they can do with Hollywood directors and producers then we just may be seeing a huge door open where other nations produce far better works. The story is ultra cheesy and the concepts are child-like. It was like watching a 10 year old play a video game and the people responsible (writer-director-producer) spent more tiem collaborating about their child hood memories of playing video games than the art at making a major movie. I was about one mouse click away from buying Disney stock but I think I am good just sitting back and seeing how they approach this franchise in the next few movies. Yikes - Thor II was a stinker.
It's all about the profit it makes-quality of the picture means nothing to investors. And this film is making a ton of money. Long term investor here very happy with the movie THOR. Make more just as good and we will be even happier!
I thought it was just fine. My son, the expert in this area, thought it was "phenomenal". It was a little longer that it could have been, could have used a little more "snappy" dialogue (although it probably had more than usual), and a little more female influence than usual.
And I believe Disney and Marvel know exactly what they are doing. There will be a sequel, albeit for at least three years (think of the anticipation). And, if this was a "video game", Disney could certainly use some help in that area as that is the one sector that is pulling it down.
It was a good movie. I like the character Loki and the woman from 2 Broke Girl (comic relief). I would see it again, but I would rather see first Catching Fire coming out in a week, that's the BIG one this year. It is a Loinsgate movie though.
