I walked out of Thor after they finished the flashback scene/CGI-gasm that ended with Thor arriving to Earth.

Ebert hasn't been relevant since Siskel died. His reviews are all over the place.

That's unfortunate. The story really picked up with the "fish out of water" element of Thor on Earth. Once it hits cable, give it another chance.

i really dislike the whole "they are aliens, not gods" thing.

best thing for me in the movie was the destroyer. and walt's cameo.

average movie. on the superhero curve grading scale, mostly good.

It seems weird to see Natalie Portman, Oscar-winner, in just a token love interest role, though for some reason, not to see Anthony Hopkins as Odin. I wasn't a big Thor reader and am not totally familiar with the Jane Foster character, but isn't Sif supposed to be Thor's big love interest?

At the screening I attended, about 10 seconds into Heimdall's first appearance, one guy in the theatre loudly yelled "Holy crap, it's Stringer Bell!!!!" Got a nice laugh.

LOL. More like I didn't have much reason to care about Thor walking in to the movie, and they didn't really give me any in that first act. Why did Thor get banished? Not because of some misunderstanding or anything...he was a dick who didn't listen and did his own thing, with a little manipulation from little bro added in.

Compare to some other superhero movies...Spider-Man started with losery Peter Parker, Iron Man started with Tony Stark being all smarmy and then getting effed up by the explosion. Thor was just Thor being an asshole and getting kicked out of Asgard. Hell, the Green Lantern trailer had more character development in a 90-second tease than Thor did in 30 minutes.

Dude. Thor was the same way. He's an arrogant prick who finds his humility on earth. It just takes longer than it did in Iron Man or Spider-Man.

Just saw Thor...quite well done, I thought it didn't totally hold together at the very end but still was a blast. Oddly enought, I caught a little of the '87 Masters Of The Universe movie on cable this morning. Thor was everything it wishes it could have been and done 25 years ago...

Whereas to my circle of friends, he will always be Charles Miner and I made jokes about him kicking a soccer ball..
