But I grew up a comic geek. Thor was never my favorite, but he was always 'on the list' of comics I bought. I grew up daydreaming that some day they could take the pages of the comix I loved and turned them 'real'... and they have. For the most part I've enjoyed every single one of the Marvel movies. Some of them I had to grin through a rictus of pain at how bad they were, but I would gladly sit and watch all of them all over again (and have). I enjoyed the little tidbits they gave about the Asgardians in general. I could never get past that in the comix really, what made them special, or better than human? They showed off the tech a bit, and fleshed out the rest a tad. Not a full explanation mind you, but sort of like letting you peek behind the curtain enough to know something was going back there that made it make sense.
I thought they did justice to Malekith and the Dark Elf saga. I liked what they did with Loki, and Frigga and Jane. I REALLY liked Frigga in this, and in the comic she's almost and afterthought from my recollection. They definitely did the 'I am woman hear me roar' thing in this and I didn't mind. They didn't steal the show, they had an equal part in it.
I would give it an 8/10 myself. The plot could have been a bit better, the dialog was a bit forced every now and then. I enjoyed it. I will see it again. I would not say that about the WORST Marvel movie to date, Iron Man 3, or the Tony Stark cry-for-me waste of money they called IM3. Gah.
