OK, so I go to a lot of movies. Especially comic book-based movies.
I loved the first Thor. I thought it was the right amounts and combinations of action, comedy and scenery.
In the new one, however, while it was still really good, there was almost...an over-abundance of the comedy. I mean, I laughed my ***off, but there were other times during the movie where the comedy was just a little too much or, dare I say, inappropriately placed.
I also loved the fact that Christopher Eccleston played the villain. That was pretty sweet. But honestly...it really could have been anyone. He did do a fantastic job, don't get me wrong. But...I felt like the character wasn't 'made' for him, ya know?
Also, the ending was kind of anti-climactic....At least for me. I felt as if there were a lot more questions than answers. (Yes, I know there will be a Thor 3.)
But, overall, it was a good movie. I would definitely recommend it if you enjoyed the first one. :)

I had not seen the first Thor Courage is Immortal, since it was released, Marvel Avengers about 8 times, and Thor Dark World was the new release. Loved it. My son was the push behind trying out the Marathon, and I am so please that we did. I won't "spoil" you, but the first movie, and Avengers both tied into the 3rd film in small, yet fundamental ways, that were also fun. Stan Lee was in for a quickie, plus there's the usual bits of more story and by-line after the credits- so don't walk out! The finish will pull your thoughts right back to the first film. I have only done 2 other Marathons, and this was an excellent choice for a 3rd. The audience of fans is always a plus at these events; You're going to spend anywhere from 10 to 20 hours with these people, and excited verbal reactions are shared. Loved it. Watch the other two movies before you go to prep yourself for the third. Loved it.

Lots of humor to go with the action, similar to Iron Man 3...including the twists. I loved the movie and was very entertained.
