Alright, so I'm a bit late to watching this one. The thing is, I grabbed it as a twofer at Walmart earlier this week packaged with Captain America (still need to watch that one).
I was surprised how much I remembered from my comic book reading years - I was a DC kid, and Thor was never a Marvel favorite of mine.
It was a very entertaining movie. It had enough references for me to catch that tied it to the rest of the Marvel Universe and yet kept things interesting so that my wife enjoyed it. She was, or course, laughing at things I wasn't, but as a social worker who spent time in a hospital environment, she really enjoyed the hospital scene near the beginning - go figure.
Is it a must see? No, but if you are waiting for The Avengers movie that is in the pipe, this has some pieces to the later puzzle. It is still fun in it's own right, but watching Anthony Hopkins play Odin was just a wee bit much for me ;)
