THOR!

1. This is not a spoiler: At the beginning, there was a loving shot of Thor topless, and half my audience laughed. But not a derisive laugh; it was the laugh of "they are pandering to us so hard" and the further giggle of "okay this shot is going on forever, this is GREAT."

Now there are spoilers.


2. Malekith/Algrim OTP, clearly.

3. I am in favor of Clint also running around nekkid, just for the record.

4. HEIMDALL

5. Seriously, how badass was Heimdall?

5. FRIGGA

6. FRIGGA NOES

7. NO FRIGGA NO

8. But that funeral was gorgeous. :(

9. But, women's casual wear on Asgard includes metal bodices? No wonder Jane changed when she got home. Into wellies. :D

10. I do love how they handle the Loki and Thor relationship. Loki doesn't cravenly betray Thor; I actually never believed that's what he was doing. He messes with Thor, but if he ever kills Thor, it'll be face to face and he will hold Thor's hand as he dies. While crying.

11. I have not given the plot much thought to see if it holds together, but I think it basically does, which is quite a feat for a comic book movie.

12. Mjolnir and the Luggage should have a long wordless stare some time.

13. THE COLLECTOR WOULD LIKE TO WEAR YOUR SKIN AS A HAT. DO NOT BE UPSET, IT IS A FETCHING HAT.

14. Ice beast, what are you doing in London? You don't belong in London! You will melt! :(

The Luggage would eat Mjolnir. And I am not at all convinced that even Thor could open it to get Mjolnir out. They would be sort of cute together though. (I... may not have had enough sleep, um.)

The topless shot of Thor was indeed glorious. They do know their audience. It was cause for much snickering when I watched it, too.

I was so happy that so much of the movie was set in Asgard and we got so much more Asgardians this time around. Heimdall actually got to do shit and be badass and it was glorious too.

FRIGGA!!! I was gutted when she died, but she got to be snarky at Odin and fierce at Malekith and the funeral was beautifully done. I also liked that it included all the other Asgardians, who died during the attack. So often the redshirts are completely forgotten in the aftermath.

Thor and Loki where great together. The sibling bickering was great and interestingly enough Loki saved Jane when he didn't have to so I think your interpretation of their relationship is very much true.

Haven't seen it yet, but did read an article where he was reluctant to do the scene, and the director insisted.

Another actor, also required to do a shirtless scene in a different movie, shared the reasoning behind the reluctance.
