I really enjoyed the film, and thought the writers and actors did a nice job of balancing action and drama with humor that actually felt organic and not ham-fisted.

I would love to see the scenes with Malekith that got cut, though, in addition to any extra Sif material that might have been left on the cutting room floor. I was really hoping she'd get more time to shine outside of a romantic context this time around, but alas. That's really my only gripe with the film.

Just saw it tonight and I liked it pretty much. I would say this was arguably the best super-hero film this year over Iron Man 3, Man Of Steel and the Wolverine.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did a spin-off of Sif or the Warriors Three like they did with Peggy Carter.

I liked it but I didn't think it was fantastic. There was just something... missing.

Again, I liked it though. Just wish I loved it.

This film felt very disjointed. Not a massive fan.

WTF is this rank?

Yeah, it was a bit sloppy and un focused, but it was fun as hell.

Like I said earlier, it's near the top of the Marvel movies in terms of fun moments, but near the bottom as a whole.

Did anyone else see it in 3D and get to see the 5 minutes of Captain America material?

That elevator fight was fantastic.

That, I will grant you. I despised IM 3 and MOS. I did not bother to go see Wolverine because I detest the character so much there is no way I could possibly enjoy that movie... but I'll take your word for it.

Thor TDW wasn't a bad movie, but I certainly did not "love" it. It kind of occupies that "middle ground" of superhero movies that are worth watching once, but not worth owning. That were flawed, but didn't suck.

Any ideas on how the SHIELD episode will tie into this?

The only guess I could hazard at this point is that they will mention "what happened in London" and perhaps show some of the wreckage? Or maybe they will take possession of the "Selvig Sticks".

Yes, I did. It was really cool scene plus the end getting a full face view of Bucky in winter soldier attire.

I saw the leak of it online, it was pretty cool, even in the cam recorded version I saw. I've been looking more forward to Cap 2 than any other Marvel movie since Avengers.

It was cool, but I actually liked the Cap 2 trailer that followed even more than the clip. It was different from the trailer that was officially released. We saw Agent 13 in it. We saw Cap doing some Blonsky-esque (from Incredible Hulk) flip kick moves. It was a faster paced trailer.

Watched this last night and I was thoroughly entertained for most of the movie. I really wish that we would have had more scenes with the all of the Warriors Three, Sif, and Malekith but even the small amount of Loki that we were given more than made up for it. Loki absolutely steals the show.

Seeing Sif and Volstagg in the sci-fi setting of the Collector's lair was a great visual during the credits, although I have to question the wisdom of the Asgardians. If the Tesseract and the Aether are indeed Infinity Stones, then giving one of them away to such a clearly unbalanced individual as the Collector is a monumentally stupid decision.

Whoa, wait a second. I didn't see Thor TDW in 3D but there was a full Cap 2 trailer before and I didn't notice Agent 13. Are there really 2 versions of the trailer out now?

Yeah I've seen the CA2 trailers that have come out, and the one they showed at 3D showings was a different one with other scenes then the they have released.

I assume that eventually it'll get leaked on the internet.
