I started writing this review last summer, when I originally watched Thor 2 on cable…my thoughts will be briefer, but possibly more favorable than when I originally watched it.

This film was made for the ladies, right? A shirtless viking god, pining over the nerdy scientist girl, even though he has a hottie asskicker at home, who would literally die for him. This is every straight woman’s fantasy. We don’t want to be tied up and beaten, like that 50 Shades bullshit. We just want the hot guy to pick us, preferably while shirtless.

As soon as they started talking “science”, I tuned out and just waited for the action to start. None of the physics they were spouting made any kind of sense, but I’m not sure if it was because I am nearly 20 years past any science classes or if it was really bullshit. I watched some documentary on String Theory a few years ago, but not sure if that counts. The science in Marvel movies is just as secondary to the plot as it is in a Scooby Doo cartoon, so who gives a fuck anyway?

At least the film delivered more Loki. Although my eyes think Thor is the best thing about these movies, my brain thinks Loki is the best.

An okay movie, but probably my least favorite in the whole franchise, except Iron Man 2.
