Odinson and Then Some

PostAvatar_Euge┬áChris and I (and Curt. And like 10 of our friends) saw Thor 2 last night. I won’t spoil any of it, but safe to say, I liked it a whole lot more than Iron Man 3, if only because it played on the universe a lot more. I can understand why these Phase 2 movies want to establish the characters in their own stand alone worlds. Iron Man 3 was as much about “Tony Stark” as it was “this guy in the Avengers,” and by the same token Thor 2 was about Thor in Asgard, and the Asgard lore. But it still managed to touch lightly on the fact that he existed in a world with the rest of the Marvel universe (although that old joke about SHIELD never being around when you really need them rings true for this one too). But I dug it. A lot. Like I said, I’ll talk more about it after people get a chance to see it.

I’m not going to lie. The LBFA machine this week has been full of car troubles, illness, and a ton of other things tugging at our time. So give us a minute, we’ll get it all back to zero and move ahead with some semblance of a schedule.

So leave your thoughts about Thor Dos in the comments, and stay tuned for more comics and shiiiiiiiieeeeeet.

    Ladyfriend found it too silly–I had to remind her that it was, in fact, a movie based on a comic book.

    I had to scrap the law of Stan Lee cameos due to Iron Man 3′s wretchedness, but Thor 2 would have certainly fit the pattern.

    I misread Thor Dos as Thor do’s, and thought you were talking about hairdos.
