If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

Better deliver, the first was a lotta fun. I can see cheesy moments already in the trailer :

I was thinking about this and it looks like it takes place after the Avengers movie. At the end of the trailer Thor is asking Loki for help, and Loki is apparently in a jail cell of some kind. At the end of the first Thor movie, Loki was presumed dead.. but after Avengers Loki was taken back to Asgard as a prisoner. I still don't understand why they never explained how Thor got back to earth in Avengers. Maybe they will cover that plot hole in this movie.

Loki assumed to Thor that Odin and Heimdall used dark magics to get Thor back to Earth. He used it in a negative connotation so maybe this film deals with the repercussions of that.

Interesting, he could have been eluding to something bigger.. either that or he was disgusted that Thor was able to travel across worlds in the same fashion Loki was able to?

 

So, I checked on Marvel's site and found a brief description of the movie:

 

 

Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World," in theaters November 8, 2013, continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

And Malekith is a dark elf and has previously used the Casket of Ancient Winters in an Avengers cartoon episode:

I don't even care that the plot wasn't explained in the trailer.. this looks badass. :D

 

The plot revolves around a war with Dark Elves.

In other news Thor The Dark World has caused racial controversy between Dunmer & Nords (See Also Nordic Race) in Windhelm.

I couldn't tell those were Dark Elves based off the trailer. -_- It definitely looked like a large scale battle between two different species tho. :P

 

I hope this movie has no racial undertones to it. That would be horrible. :crap:

Looks that way.. but considering how quickly he bashed that rock golem, I'm guessing thats just the tip of the iceburg for that battle.

No spoiler tags for this but 2:10 was a major spoiler....

To a certain extent I wanted to root for The Dark Elves. Not because they were "evil" but from what they stated it seem like they were fighting an evil that destroyed their way of life; that being light.

 

I'm kind of disappointed that Odin states that they aren't Gods. Which leaves for me a feeling that the people that made this didn't want to offend religious nutters who want to declare only their god(s) are real.

 

Also stay after the credits.

I watched up until the 2:10 mark. Thank you for the warning. From what I did hear in the first couple minutes reaffirms what I heard about the movie being as much of a sequel to Avengers as well as a sequel to the first Thor. I'm looking forward to watching this. I also read that this season of Shield will have an episode in a couple weeks that takes place after the events of the second Thor movie. I just hope it doesn't have spoilers in it if I haven't seen this movie by then.

I was referring to trailer you posted previously not to Movie Bob's review just to clarify.

Just watched it, and it was loads of fun!  It does take place after Avengers, and there's some great action and great humor in there. 


Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints!

Is it better than Thor 1? Nobody I know wants to see it in the theater with me :

Actually, I thought it was better.  Maybe because they didn't have to spend time on origin story and could really get to the meat of it.  There was a bit of deus ex machina in places, but Christopher Eccleston as the main villian?  Swweeeet!

I watched this tonight and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think it was better than Thor 1. The first movie definitely felt more like the origin story that it was. Thor 2 was more of a good versus true evil battle.

 

The Collector was shown at the end.. very interesting. I'm thinking they are already laying the ground work for Avengers 3, which would most likely have Thanos trying to take over the universe. O_O

For me, Thor 1 > 2. What I liked in Thor 2 - aerial fight sequence in Asgard and a bit of Loki. What I didn't like in Thor 2 - for a catastrophic event in the end of THAT magnitude there was no other Superhero in sight (were they all dumb all of a sudden or asleep?) or SHIELD or anyone outside the small group of 3/4 people which made it unrealistic or not very believable and bad dialog when it came to humor.

I kept expecting some other super hero, shield or a larger British force to appear.. instead only a couple fighter jets showed up. Oh well. I suppose the fight was fast enough that non of the other super heroes from the US could have made it to Britain in that amount of time.

 

There were 2 things I didn't like in the movie.. The first was the mostly naked Thor scene. His ass checks were so muscular I could see his ass cleavage all the way up his lower back. ewww. :P and Jane Foster's makeup was so heavy that it was beyond noticeable. Everyone else's makeup was fine.. but Natalie Portman's foundation was like a layer of junk on her face. :\

      Hell yes. Daredevil season 2 was the entire Punisher origin story and in that season netflix pulled off some of the most realistic gun fights I've seen in any movie / tv series. Sure movies have gun fights all the time, but for assault weapons, shotguns, etc. its all special effects and nothing physical. In daredevil season 2 it felt like they were literally shooting guns everywhere and each individual bullet hole was shown being created in the background as it happened. As long as the punisher series has that much detail this will be amazing. It better have that much detail because netflix needs another strong marvel series. Iron Fist and Defenders were horrible compared to their predecessors.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.
