THOR: THE DARK WORLD looks to be a marked improvement over Kenneth Branagh's bland 2011 introduction to the Marvel character. While I liked the visual style brought to the movie, it just didn't click for me the way other Marvel films have. With CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST upping the ante with quality comic adaptations in the coming year, THOR is left to pump up Disney/Marvel's Phase Two. After IRON MAN 3 didn't quite raise the bar enough, can Alan Taylor's film do the trick?

The Honest Trailers guys, in anticipation of THOR: THE DARK WORLD, have tackled the 2011 original and given it the treatment only they can deliver. The results are funny and very fair. So, to all of you who loved the original THOR, I give you this.

For everyone else, THOR: THE DARK WORLD opens on November 8th.

Thor was so good not even Honest Movie Trailers can really make fun of it. I laughed a couple of times throughout but that's because of moments from the film being so damn funny. "I need a horse!"

Just watched the film again, this time with Kenneth Branagh's commentary, and was reminded of why I enjoyed it so much. I think he handled the juxtaposition between the grandeur of Asgard and how relatively mundane our world is really well. This was the Marvel film that really delved into fantasy and it felt organic enough that it took place in the same continuity as Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk. Looking forward to seeing the second one tonight.

There are great comic book movies (Dark Knight, Iron Man, X2), there are bad comic book movies (Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Elektra) and there are those that fall in the middle. Thor is one of those in the middle. I give Branagh credit for putting together a great cast. The Asgard scenes were great, but the parts on Earth were a little dull.
Also, for some reason all the "angled" camera shots in this film really bugged me. They had no purpose other than to draw attention to itself. I don't

those angled shots reminded me of the campy adam west batman show that used it a lot. i assumed it was branagh's homage to comic book adaptations of yore. especially with a unrealistic story like Thor

Say what you will...

Thor was probably my favorite of the solo phase one movies. I know everyone says Iron Man, but with the others, Iron Man 2 was just the same as the first movie, Captain America was light on the action but a good intro to the character, and Hulk was great for the final 30 minute long battle in Brooklyn.

Thor was probably my least favorite of Marvel's Phase One movies. It proved to be important as it established the main villain of The Avengers, but it just felt very....average. Not very memorable at all. I can't really point to one thing, but the incredibly rushed romance between Thor and Foster, Darcy's idiotic character, and Thor's progression from arrogant, wannabe king to somewhat more humbled just didn't appeal to me. Not good, not terrible, but very forgettable for me.
