Movie Monday: Thor

It had been a whole 2-3 weeks since I'd seen a Marvel movie. Obviously, this had to be rectified. And what better way to do it than with a Marvel movie I'd somehow only seen once?!

Reasons why Thor is awesome:
1. Tom Hiddleston. Come on, like anything else was going to be at the top of this list.
2. The coffee shop scene.
3. Kat Dennings. She and her awesome lines are definitely a highlight of this movie.
4. Billowy cloaks of doom. I loves me a good billowy cloak of doom.
5. Chris Hemsworth. He's pretty great.
6. Blue glowy objects. Marvel sure does love those things.
7. Natalie Portman.
8. COOOOOOOOOOOOOOULSON!!! (side note: I am so freaking excited about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. OMG, YOU GUYS)
9. Mjolnir.
Now with added bicep appreciation. Source lost to the depths of Tumblr because
the way Google brings up Tumblr results is the WORST.
10. Ridiculous horned helmets.
11. Anthony Hopkins. Total BAMF.
12. Loki's amazing facial expressions.
13. Sif. She's an awesome character.
14. Table tossing.
15. Stellan Skarsgard.
16. Frost giants.
17. It's directed by Kenneth Branaugh.
18. Idris Elba.
19. Pretty much every scene where someone in New Mexico tries to wield Mjolnir.
20. Drunken Erik.
22. Stan Lee cameos.
23. Tasing Thor.
24. The continuity through the Marvel movies. It's freaking PHENOMENAL, you guys. (Dear Steven Moffat: please watch and take notes. Love, Whovians)

Plus, the following quotes:
- "Do me a favour. Don't be dead."
- "Only one of you can ascend to the throne. But both of you were born to be kings."
- "I have no plans to die today."
- "Run back home, little princess." "...Damn."
- "I need a horse!" "We don't have horses. Just dogs, cats, birds..." "Then give me one of those large enough to ride."
- "I never wanted the throne. I only wanted to be your equal."
- "Is this how you normally look?" "More or less." "It's a good look."
- "I knew this scientist, a pioneer in gamma radiation. SHIELD showed up and he wasn't heard from again."
- "You think me strange." "Yeah." "Good strange or bad strange?" "I'm not quite sure yet."
- "You want me to slow him down, sir? Or are you sending in more guys for him to beat up?"
- "Is that one of Stark's?" "I dunno. That guy never tells me anything."
- "Is there a Renaissance fair in town?" "Call it in." "Yeah. Uh, base? We've got, uh, Xena, Jackie Chan and Robin Hood..."
- "You know, for a crazy homeless person, he's pretty cut."
- "I am not dying for six college credits!"
- "You're big. I've fought bigger."
- "We drank, we fought, we made his ancestors proud."
- "Oh my God, this is going on Facebook. Smile!"

So. Thoughts? Also, on a scale of one to fangirl flail, how excited are you about Thor: The Dark World?

  1. I need to watch this movie again. 1) Because I'm considering using it for a movie night for work on Sunday and I need to make sure there's nothing in it that overly protective parents will get me fire d for. 2) Just because I've only seen it once and just from reading this post, there are a lot of things I missed.

    1. It's kind of amazing how much there is in the Marvel movies that you miss the first time around. Luckily, they're awesome enough to warrant multiple rewatches.

  2. I haven't seen Thor! I know. I know. Although I did have a dream about Chris Hemsworth, except that it was really IC. Awkward.

  3. I'm with Emmy. I haven't watched this movie in far too long and it's just so good.

    I think you missed one of my favorite lines though... "My mortal body grows weary. I need sustenance!" Fantastic.

    Also, I'm not quite at fan-girl flail excitement just yet, but you can be pretty sure that I'll get there before November. :P

  4. I love Thor, one of the best Marvel movies IMO!

    1. Definitely!! I need to rewatch Captain America as well, although I'm not sure that's nearly as great...


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
