"Perfection... sometimes it's our worst enemy. I tried to be perfect once... decided to just try to be better. Found a good way to start that... is by accepting who you are."
> bad villain
> bad romance
> cliched plot
> no explanation of certain pivotal plot points/over explanation of certain plot points
+ good fight scenes
EDIT: Also I really don't get Pacific Rim worship. Its a fine movie, but I think people like it for reasons other than the movie; underdog, the director, the genre, etc

Didn't watch the video but Superman just has too much of a speed advantage to lose. Also, Superman's "Weakness to magic" just doesn't work the way some folks think it does. Not that I don't like Thor. He's one of my favorites.
When the reviewer said it failed to live up to IM3's "potential", I immediately lost all interest and understanding in the review.
What does CIN mean?
Why do you ask me, you say, I don't know. You should tell me what it means?
But is there no hint of creative fatigue creeping in? “I don’t know if there’s an infinite amount of expansion that we can do,” Feige told Reuters ahead of the premiere of Thor: The Dark World in London. “But if you look at the comics, they’ve been telling a story a month for 50 years or so, so there’s a lot of stories we can tell.
“I’d like to think that as long as we keep surprising audiences, as long as we keep taking chances and evolving characters in our movies so that they can’t quite pin us down or tell where we’re going to go next, that we’ll keep the audiences engaged and they’ll keep coming to see it.” So far this year, the Superman reboot Man of Steel has cleared $662 million and Iron Man 3 some $1.2 billion worldwide, double what the first two movies in that franchise pulled in individually, according to the ticket tracking website Boxofficemojo.com.
“There’s a certain amount of spectacle and scale with superhero movies that makes people think its time to drive out and see them on a big screen,” Feige said.
“Then it’s the characters. I think people like to see a flawed hero overcome their flaws to prevail.”
For the second Thor movie, Feige and his director Alan Taylor have banked firmly on humour, often found in juxtaposing everyday life in the film’s London setting with the hammer-wielding Norse God of the title.
This battle will be fought at the box office, starting in just under a week.
For those of us in Australia, anyway.

Personally, I think that Supes v. Thor battle from JLA\AVENGERS should be disqualified from canon consideration! From what Mr.Busiek has commented on in reference to the story, he used Thor's battle against count Nefaria as sort of a blueprint for Thor's fight with Supes. JIM SHOOTER wrote Nefaria as having the power of the Silver Age Superman (the planet mover, yadda,yadda) but even with that, Shooter was attacked during that time for making Thor "too weak", which prompted Shooter to write a later story where Thor admitted that he was unconsciously "holding back". Now, if Shooter admitted he made a mistake about Thor's power level, and Busiek used a flawed interpretation of Thor as a source, then his own story itself was flawed!
For instance, Supes hit Thor with his heat vision--BUT Thor has used his hammer to absorb the cosmic bolts of the Silver Surfer so Kal's heat vision shouldn't have been a problem. And why was Thor seemingly unable to summon a storm to blast Superman with magic lightning, ala whenever Captain Marvel hits him with a SHAZAM bolt? And what happened to the "God Blast", where Thor funnels his inner energies through Mjolnir? If Thor can fend off a weakened Galactus, who is more powerful than Darkseid, couldn't he do likewise to a mere solar-powered Kryptonian?
So again, the Busiek story should be ignored, especially since back-stage politics between DC and Marvel may have also been involved...
FAV Comics: LIL'ABNER, DICK TRACY, BATMAN, UNCLE SCROOGE, KAMUI, TOMB OF DRACULA, THE MIGHTY THOR by LEE\KIRBY, WONDER WOMAN by PEREZ\KAREN BERGER and EC Comics from BILL GAINES!
Every story involves back-stage politics. We should disregard every appearance of these characters.So again, the Busiek story should be ignored, especially since back-stage politics between DC and Marvel may have also been involved...
Heat vision wouldn't have been a problem if Thor had used Mjolnir in the way you describe, but he chose not to.For instance, Supes hit Thor with his heat vision--BUT Thor has used his hammer to absorb the cosmic bolts of the Silver Surfer so Kal's heat vision shouldn't have been a problem.
'Summoned by magic' does not equal 'magical in nature'.And why was Thor seemingly unable to summon a storm to blast Superman with magic lightning,
Superman has withstood the Shazam-bolt on numerous occasions.ala whenever Captain Marvel hits him with a SHAZAM bolt?
There's nothing 'mere' about that solar-powered Kryptonian...And what happened to the "God Blast", where Thor funnels his inner energies through Mjolnir? If Thor can fend off a weakened Galactus, who is more powerful than Darkseid, couldn't he do likewise to a mere solar-powered Kryptonian?
