    As I posted yesterday on twitter: Mini-Review of Thor – The dark kingdom:
    Good, fun, intelligent storytelling. Just go and see it. It’s worth the price.

    • Sofie Liv

      A lot of fun indeed… Dammit Loki looked like a person who had fun!

      Oh what’s this happening? a huge prison break? I’m just going to sit here and read my book then.

      I’m so chilled B)

      Epic Avengers cameo.. and no I wont spoil it X)

      • CaptainCalvinCat

        I won’t either, but – yes… it was very epic. ^^ Yes, Natalie Portman was a bit underused, which I didn*t like, because I like her as an actress, and they could’ve used more for Jaime Alexander BUT – it was just an awesome movie. Looking forward for the Winter Soldier.

        Oh, and by the way: When the marvel movies of gen 2 decide to take place in cities, that have real environment, I want Cap Am to walk on Berlins Streets in Winter Soldier. And GO on location – not as you did with Stuttgart in The Avengers. ^^

        • Sofie Liv

          They should pay tribute to “Reptilicus.” and go destroy Stockholm (the Capital of Sweden.)

          Then cut to some Danish officers saying. “Aww, Stockholm is gone.”

          That honestly happens in Reptilicus, and no, we don’t see the destruction of Stockholm at all, it’s just some danish officers standing around talking about it. awww, there goes Stockholm, to bad I guess. Oh well, on to Tivoli in Copenhagen! weee!

          • MichaelANovelli

            You daffy Danes, with your culture and cities with names!

          • danbreunig

            I concur. There’s something about Danes that makes me want to share a beer and a story with them…

  • Having just seen it with a few good mates, it was a very entertaining film. Nice of them to have the Earth setting be London, Loki was hilarious and some of his comments give you snarky reviewers a run for your money and Thor himself was badass. Glad I saw it.

    • Sofie Liv

      how about Thor out-right just shouting. “SHUT UP LOKI!”

      … gold X)

  • danbreunig

    This is one I’ve been looking forward to all year, or rather one of plenty near the end of the year I’m looking forward to. This review just cinches it: it’s sure to make my November–and the next Hunger Games, too.

    Crush away, dear nerd girl, crush away…

    • Sofie Liv

      I should probably go watch Hunger games as well shouldn’t I?

      Even though.. in spite of that being the supposdly, romantic thing for teens.. it doesn’t have nearly as good man meat in it! :C

  • Richard Eriksson Hjelm

    So this or sons of abraham… hmm oh well I didn’t need food to survive anyway

    • Sofie Liv

      Pff, Sons of Abraham?

      This one has space-vikings and space dark elfs!

      • Richard Eriksson Hjelm

        In hindsight I think it was better than you made it out to be

  • Gallen_Dugall

    They didn’t give Natalie Portman much to do? That was all I was asking for, I’m in.

    • Sofie Liv

      Well, what she did do she did do very well in this movie, if I might say so.

      But yeah, the way to get her in there in the first place is to make her a damsel in distress.. so.. yeah..

      • CaptainCalvinCat

        You’re right, Sofie. WHEN they did have Jane do their stuff, it was quite awesome.
        Slapping the GOD OF THUNDER? Slapping the GOD OF MISCHIEV? And working with that DIngsbums of her…. Great. ^^

        Here something I’d like maybe for the third avengers-movie, if we get one:
        Jane, Kat, SIph, Pepper, Black Widow, Betty – working together as an all-female-avengers team.
        Give them something to do, give them the focus.
        Black Widow in command, 2 IC would be Siph, and the other four would be Scientific. ^^

        • Sofie Liv

          the women should honestly just be the smart scienes team of the avengers, they are a good team.

          Pepper as the leader and planner.

          Black Widow as the field agent.

          Jane and Betty as the sciense gals. You got a pretty damn strong team there.

          • MephLord

            Marvel doesn’t need the love interests to make a good female Avengers team. There is Wasp, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Tigra, Photon, and Mockingbird to go along with Black Widow, Pepper, Maria Hill and Sif.

          • Sofie Liv

            now we are just talking about the women all-ready established in the “Movie-verse.”

            What is established in the Comic-verse and the movie-verse are two different things.

            It just so happens that the shared Marvel movie verse is based on some comics. What they decide to establish or not, is pretty much up to them.

            As far as we know right now, She-Hulk doesn’t exist in that univers.

            Maybe she will one day, who knows.

            But Pepper, Jane Foster, Black Widow and Betty does exist within this univers.

          • MephLord

            and so does Maria Hill, yet she gets ignored all the time….

          • CaptainCalvinCat

            Okay, let’s put Maria Hill in there, too – would be awesome. ^^ And actually I would really like some love-interest-team, mainly because they could need more screen-time as characters of their own. Granted: Pepper has the screen-time, but is underused. She ends up as “Lady to be saved” on two occasions (granted: She kicked that guys ass in Iron Man 3 and ended up saving Tony, but… never the less), has a small cameo in “The Avengers” and was just to play off of Tony in Iron Man 2. No – she could need more screen-time in ways of actually getting stuff done – and she has super-powers now. ^^

            She could be trained by Maria Hill and Black Widow in terms of fighting. Same goes for Jane, who could get training from Lady Sif.

            And yes, maybe it would end up as a “female version of the Avengers-team” (see: Smurfette-Principle) but – I have to admit: In a time, where “Expenda-Belles” are in talks, honestly: I don’t care that much about a smurfette-principle. When the story is told in a good way, then it could work. ^^

          • MephLord

            I have a question, and I hope it’s not venturing into spoiler territory, but is Valkyrie in the Dark World at all?

  • I saw this film a couple of days ago and I loved it. My favourite part was the bit on the Underground station during the fight at the end. Alan Taylor was a much better choice of director than Kenneth Branagh was for the first one as he has a much better handle on the material (especially the action) and made Asgard feel like a real place rather than CGI land. His direction did remind me a lot of his Game of Thrones work in places (and I counted two references to the show), and I’m guessing he’s quite a fan of gaming given that the finale is basically Portal with hammers and the villain turns into Alex Mercer at one point.

    I did have a few gripes with it, one character is killed off in a big, dramatic fashion with an injury that other people are later shown surviving and I’ve no idea what happened to Stellan Skarsgard’s character (if it’s the result of Loki’s mind control thing I can’t wait to see the Hawkeye movie). Siph also keeps showing up in a way that implies that there is more to her than we get to see (and she seems to be the only woman in the entire Asgardian army, so I do wonder whether they’re going to make some sort of G.I. Siph spinoff later).

    Also, if you have not seen this film yet, see it with several female friends and watch them when Chris Hemsworth is walking around shirtless. It is a sight to behold.

    • Sofie Liv

      Oh boy, we are unning into spoiler territory now aren’t we?

      So yeah guys, this post.. SPOILERS! don’t read.

      I thought Brannagh did a really good job on a nearly impossible task, so I am not complaining on that one. This one just had to go on on the foundation all-ready sat.

      Well, when it comes to Loki.. you know he can do all of those illusion thingies, so we don’t really have no idea what he did?
      If he staged his own death on purpose to get out of the final battle, so the spear through him was also an illusion, or what. It’s Loki, you can’t tell.

      My question though has to be… how the heck did he manage to take out Odin, without any-one noticing, and where is Odin now????
      But well, this mean more Loki in the future, weeh 🙂

      No, the dark Elfs weren’t interesting at all, they were kind of like Sauron from Lord of the rings, just.. pure evil beings and that’s it.. they served their purpose.

      The interesting one was Loki, it was him who got all the focus, had the villains been more complex, it would have taken away from Loki and what was going on with him, and I wanted more Loki, I wanted to spend this time with him, so it’s an exchange I do approve of.

      It’s surprisingly common that the secondary villain is far more interesting than the main villain.

      Just look at Harry potter, we have sooo many very interesting secondary villain, and then there is Voldemort, whom is… very one dimensional if you come down to it, he’s just evil because.

      Yeah, Christian whom I saw it with, commented on this as well.

      I don’t know, I was to busy looking at shirtless hemsworth… wait.

      • CaptainCalvinCat

        Well, my theory: Loki has disguised Odin as Loki and himself as Odin. So Odin goes into either jail or into “the nuthouse” – which would be understandable, if Odin (in Lokis form) would just be yelling: “I’m ODIN ALLFATHER! THE GUY ON THE THRONE IS LOKI!!!” – or he has already killed Odin and disposed him… which would be cruel, but on the other hand he would be together with his wife in death on valhalla.

        • Sofie Liv

          that.. sounds needlessly complicated, even if we are talking Loki, in which case.. needlessly complicated plans are sort of his things.

          I don’t really think he planned it, that is leaving WAY to much up to chance, he is not that stupid, seriously, if he had been planning that things should go exactly like that from the point he left his cell.. things would have broken apart if just one single thing didn’t go according to plan, in what barely was a plan, and Loki didn’t even know what Thor actually intended to do, he just went along with it for his own reasons.
          Things just happened to play into his favour and he grabbed an oppertunity in front of him.
          I do think that is all, I don’t think he planned any-thing, again, that is leaving way to much up to chance.

      • Maybe I was being too harsh on Branagh. His task was admittedly a tougher one, setting up the nine realms and all that. Loki’s illusion powers do admittedly solve that problem although I do wonder why he doesn’t use those more often. I’m still annoyed that a certain character died just when their role was getting interesting though. Given that the film’s only two hours long, I think they could have added another ten minutes of dark elf development though without taking away any of Loki’s focus (I’m also surprised Tom Hiddleston didn’t get a shirtless scene, that would have brought in another $100 million in repeat viewings surely).

        • Sofie Liv

          They didn’t show the shirtless Loki scene, due to the test screening results, where all the women mysteriously fainted and had to be driven to hospitals.

          They are okay though, it’s just some highened blood pressure they all mysteriously got simultaniously.

          Worst is the scene where Shirtloss Loki and Shirtless thor had their borderline romantic scene, getting really close, and talking about how they can’t trust each other any-more.

          That scene didn’t even make it to test screening, as a woman nearly died from heart attack, as she walked into editting and saw the scene by mistake.

  • maarvarq

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I am so glad to hear that “The Dark World” is not, in fact, dark. “Gritty” superhero stories get really old for me, really fast.

    • Sofie Liv

      It’s not!
      it’s bright, colourful and very humourus… just to spoil one of the many jokes.. Thor eventually ends up taking the tube of London.

      Yes in full battle-wear… I understand the woman whom ‘accidently’ bumped into him.

      • drumstick00m

        On these notes, hope you do not mind if I use your review to “recruit” my fellow Americans into seeing the American premier this Thursday. 😉

        • Sofie Liv

          Well duh, of cause not!

          That’s why the review is here silly, please, force lots and lots of people to follow me I mean… hehe. glad you like the review X)

  • Just saw, “Thor: The Dark World”
    It was really good. And what is more, it was so good it made me like something else less retroactively. It made me like “Man of Steel” less because they have very similar plots (with one very specific failure of writing), but the plots are gone through by very different main characters.

    Superman tackled its plot with a lot more angst, frustration, and melancholy, Thor took on his plot with a lot of levity, optimism, and a sense of fun. I would have to write a very long blog to explain this in detail enough for people understand what I was really talking about and that would have a lot of spoilers for both movies. Definitely when I do my own end of the year movie reviews.

    • Sofie Liv

      It is kind of ironic that the superhero movie titled. “The Dark world.” is the most ligth hearted superhero movie to come out this year, isn’t it?

      • Maybe that was the irony of it? That they will have the dark and apocalyptic plot but won’t let that part of the movie drag down on the rest.

  • Endorenna

    I saw this movie last night.

    IT WAS SO. FREAKING. AWESOME.

    I was surprised how much humor was in it, but that was the best part! As you pointed out, this is a movie about space vikings who fly around with hammers. It needs humor. Some of my favorite moments were when the movie was lampshading itself.

    Loki was definitely the best part, though.

    So, minor spoiler here…so…SPOILER.

    Okay, not reading now unless you’ve seen it?

    You were warned.

    Anyways, as I was sitting through the credits, I went, “Wait, what happened to that big ice dog thing that came through the wormhole? It’s still running around!” Then the end credits scene came up, and I saw it chasing the birds…

    Seriously, this movie is incredibly funny. Admittedly, that part was just particularly funny to me because I had just been wondering about that, but it was still funny.

    If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. Then go see The Hobbit part 2 and The Winter Soldier when they come out.

    • Sofie Liv

      Glad you liked it 🙂

      And yeah, I am very much looking forward to those two movies as well. Next one to come up, The hobbit 2!

      All-though, next Cinema trip.. The day of the doctor, with a bunch of other whovians BOOYA!
