Everything Wrong With Thor In 8 Minutes Or Less

Before you travel with Thor, Jane, & Loki to The Dark World–whatever that is–go back in time and take a look at all the sins from the first Thor movie.

PG-13 Language.

  1. I had 3 issues with Thor:

    1. The bad guys used grenades and laser guns…. Where were the hand guns and grenades for the Asgardians?
    2. It seems that mobile phone batteries last for well over a week in a different realm
    3. This threat was a much bigger one than experienced during The Avengers Assemble, where was Ironman Hulk etc…. on holiday, unavailable??

    • I had one major issue with Thor. Kat Dennings.

      The useless character is in the sequel too. Please. Kill. Her. Now.

      As usual though, the everything wrong series is pretty funny. :D


      • But she has a rocking set of fun pillows. I’d keep her around but find ways to have her in tight shirts or performing car washes

    • 1. Dark Elves were said in press releases in the 6 months before release to scavenge weapons from other realms they’d conquered. Plus Asgardians are meant to come across as true warriors and it’s kinda cowardly to use long distance weapons instead of hand to hand, at least in my view.

      2. Meh, convenient plot point, what can ya do? Not like other movies haven’t had them, The Avengers was full of them. I’d worry more about the signal (which Jane comments on in the movie) than battery life anyway.

      3. Stark had retired, Banner was probably being a doctor and helping people, Cap’s with SHIELD, probably busy with this Winter Soldier stuff that’s popping up now and then and whatever else they’re busy with. This third one isn’t really much of an issue when you think about it.

      As for the comment above about Kat Dennings, I thought she was even funnier in this one, much needed light relief during the heavy scenes.

      • Stark retired?? BS.

  2. Does anyone know why cant I watch ANY video from this Geek Pick?

    • Your computer is jacked up?

  3. *Loki´s way better…

    *Nice Stan Lee!, Nice.

  4. loved the pulp fiction over-dub on the thor end credit scene!

  5. Howcome there’s never a article about how many flaws a DC film would have?
