Thor movie by humon Thor movie by humon
My site [link]

First time I watched Thor was with *Poralizer and she kept telling me "Don't think too hard about it. Just enjoy it as an action movie"

I wasn't the least angry or butthurt and actually thought it was quite fun, but my mind kept going "This is wrong! This is all wrong!" and it carried over to the Avengers movie. Every time Thor and Loki opened their mouths my brain went "Ynhljbasfsgdb!!!*blue screen*" :XD:

I know it's based on a comic, but the comic is inspired by the mythology, and I had a hard time ignoring that because they had taken enough parts from the mythology to make the wrong parts stand out. If they had just taken the names and left everything else I would have had an easier time getting over it.

At least it explained all the weird question I've been getting from people about Norse mythology.

But just for fun, have some Danish Lokis [link] (From a christmas series) [link] (From the cartoon Valhalla)

Yep. That as me too. But they wanted to make it less confusing for the people that dont read the comics or dont read Norse mythology. Though they should make a remake for the people that do! I would be ALL OVER that!

Me too. Me too. Sif annoyed me so much. I was like 'Thor! You are cheating on your wife!!!! Drop Jane instantly!' Plus, lack of mead. All the best Viking stories include mead.

That is very definitely me, although I got over it eventually... the movie is great in its own right.
Then Dad got me a book of old Thor comics, and I got through ALMOST three stories and threw it at the wall. XD

Honestly, the movie was a terrible adaptation of an OKAY adaptation. Read the comics, they're slightly closer to the original mythology (slightly...).
That being said, I love Marvel's Thor (comic and movie) as much as the original mythology. You just have to learn to keep the two separate. :P

I guess the best way to take it is...it's a re imagining. but as for Sif's hair...I think it was originally blonde in the myths and Thor and Loki got into a fight and Loki turned her hair black.

Maybe we can make the argument that already happened prior to the movie?

Well, if it makes you feel any better the comics at one point DO explain all the discrepancies. 

 

Basically, taking a VERY liberal view on the idea that some gods will be revived after Ragnarok, they say that after the Ragnarok all the gods are reborn in different ways, varying from slight changes to incredible differences. 

 

I mean, the idea of Ragnarok being a cycle is kinda off to begin with, but at least they addressed it.  =)
