Good point, they should at least have lightsabers or something!

Re: Thor - Blu-Ray Review

Just got around to watching this over the weekend and I will have to agree 100% with this review.
Based on the marketing at the time the movie was out I really had no interest in seeing this and figured I would watch it eventually on video as a rental, (bumped up in my queue because I wanted to see it before the Avengers movie).
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, great action scenes throughout the movie, interesting enough story with just the right amount of humor.

I am watching this on a new TV and listening through my new AVR and was just blown away by the sound, my sub-woofer got a serious workout. The audio design of this move was incredible, the sound effects were really spot on.

Overall this is a great popcorn flick and excellent demo material for a sound system.

No doubt I will be adding this to my collection as soon as I find a good deal on it.

I also watched this and was very surprised just how good it really was. The audio was tremendous and the story line was very good.

Re: Thor - Blu-Ray Review

It looks like I'm going to have to watch this one again because I don't remember it being all that good. However, I did see it on a small screen TV with no audio other than the small TV speakers.

Wonder if that could have anything to do with my initial impression of it?

I rented this BRD shortly after it came out. I wasn't expecting much, but really enjoyed this movie! It should really be a prerequisite to watching the new Avengers movie (which I thoroughly enjoyed too). Thor contains so much of the back story, which I did not think was explained well.

Thanks for the review! I now want to watch Thor again.

I watched this movie before I had my home theater setup. It was a good movie, I think I will buy it and watch it again with the new system.

Re: Thor - Blu-Ray Review

My kids want to see Avengers, so we have been watching the Lead-ins in an attempt to capture as much of the backstory as possible before we see it. We have now watched Captain American, The Incredible Hulk and now Thor within the past two weeks. (We have all seen Iron Man, previously.) Of the 3, I enjoyed Thor the most wiht Captain America a close second. Good fun and good action. I thought there was very little story to TIH.

Re: Thor - Blu-Ray Review

I was surprised, of all the lead-ins to Avengers, Thor was the most important as far as back story.
