So I left work today because I was feeling really sick. Came home, crashed on the sofa and put on this moving I’d recorded on DVR. I’m watching all these movies out of order and way later than most people I know. I don’t get to the movies often.
Here’s my (likely unpopular) opinion. I like a good hero movie, and I like Thor as a character. I liked the first movie and watched it several times. This one though, I had urges to fast forward through a lot of it. I can’t put my finger on what was wrong or missing, but I’m just not a fan of this one. I might be the only one on the planet who doesn’t like Loki. And it’s not that I’m into the righteous, goody-two-shoes characters, because a lot of them are boring. I found myself watching this and thinking, ‘yeah yeah, Loki is all smug. Yeah yeah, he’s going to be fine and take over everything and whatever.’ Perhaps he’s too predictable as a villain, I don’t know. Heck, it could even be that I wasn’t feeling well and not having any of it. But that’s why I don’t do official reviews.
My “ruling”: Meh
