I really got tired of the non-stop torrent of superhero movies but this movie was really really really good!

Thor started to win me back over when it came out last year. It was good but I didn't think they did nearly enough with it. My biggest fears were that the movie was not going to be big enough or The Hulk was going to ruin it.

I'm already thinking of seeing it again next weekend! Though I really can't figure out exactly what was so great about the post-credit scene. They left it open for a sequel? That's been going on for decades.

The movie was pretty good in my opinion. They managed to do a fairly good job balancing the amount of characters in the movie, and I enjoyed the dialogue. Good comedy and nuggets of "food for thought". I'm not sure about the mid credits scene, I didn't know who I was lookin at...

I am one of the running/screaming NYC pedestrians in the film's final act. I wore a black shirt with a trendy hat and hipster glasses. I unfortunately couldn't spot myself when I saw it in theaters, but a friend of mine swears he saw me run right past the camera in a scene where people are being rescued from a bus. In any case, I won't know for sure until I am able to freeze-frame some action!

The film was absolutely incredible -- it definitely lived up to expectations.

One criticism I've noted is a less than stellar reception of the music by Silvestri. While I agree that the music is not memorable, the orchestral soundtrack really does help to make it feel separate from the other films, which (especially Iron Man 1/2) had a rock background. If the music succeeds, then it is because it tells us that the film is neither Iron Man 3 nor Thor 2.

Bam-bam from The Flintstones impersonation by The Hulk. Awesome.

Also, that was a really well-done rendition of Thanos at the end. It actually looks like him. I mean, they took a very non-human character and made it work right.

Here's hoping Avengers 2 will be as good, if not better.

Things that would have made the movie worth seeing:

1. Ghost Rider
2. Nicolas Cage

I saw it again, and it almost made me want to watch Thor. Almost.

Beware. My Friend. You will leave that movie just a bit less hetero than you were before you went in.

I wouldn't go quite that far.

You do know that Natalie Portman was in that movie, right?
