Sockpuppet Friday—the Hulk v. Thor Edition!

Update: Also, don’t hesitate to tell your favorite bin Laden death joke! I think it was Confederate Yankee who said that the first thing bin Laden said when he got to Hell was, “why are all virgins clones of Steve Carell?”

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sock puppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself, a lot.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And for this week’s Friday frivolity, as you know the big superhero movie Thor releases today.  Metacritic is giving it mixed reviews.  IGN, one of my favorite entertainment sites, liked it:

Of course, this is part of Marvel’s plan to slowly put together an Avengers movie, which is all good with me and IGN makes the interesting case that this is not a safe-bet movie.

But one thing is for sure.  This Thor has to be better than, well…  this:

That is from a retrospective on how Thor has appeared on TV—and frankly it has largely been pretty bad.

  9. I would like to apologize to everyone. I followed Lee over here from his work at Breitbart’s and assumed because they were pillowcase and sheet wearing racists over there, that you people would be too. It turns out that I was right in my assumptions, but I do apologize for having leapt to same too quickly. It did not take long for you to prove my assumptions correct, and for that I thank you. Your love of torture, killbots, bigotry and sexism is only exceeded by your hatred of brown skinned people. May Gaia have mercy on your soul.

  27. Friends,

    I just created a petition entitled Give credit where it’s due! Award President Obama $25 million reward for killing Osama Bin Laden!!!, because I care deeply about this very important issue.

    I’m trying to collect 100 signatures, and I could really use your help.

    To read more about what I’m trying to do and to sign my petition, click here:

    It’ll just take a minute!

    Once you’re done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word!

    The Clueless Conservative (5576bf)

  57. I saw it last night. It’s good for a comic book movie.

    My standards:

    #1 — Ironman, the best comic book movie.
    #2 — Spiderman I, the two recent Batman/Dark Knight movies (Christopher Bale)
    #3 — Most of the rest of the Marvel movies (except Punisher, both Hulks, Elektra, and Ghostrider), The first two Burton ‘Batman’ movies, and the first two Reeve Superman movies
    #4 — All DC-based movies except DK that I’ve seen (no idea about Jonah Hex), Green Hornet
    #5 — Both Hulks, and the other bad marvels. The latest Superman, and the final two Superman and Batman movies of the 80s & 90s

    I reserve the right to change/alter the above with CBMs (comic-book-movies) I haven’t thought about as being CBMs.

    Now, having provided a standards bar,

    THOR rates at the top end of class #3

    The story isn’t deep or complex, there are no massive surprises (though you should find the post-credits ending scene…. “interesting”), but it’s a good, entertaining bit of comic-book storytelling, well-executed and adequately acted for an action-oriented comic book-turned-movie. The characters are engaging and likeable, even the villain/nemesis isn’t deeply evil (at this point, anyway) but a flawed God whose actions one can understand though not support.

    I’d suggest that the following are worthy of note:

    1) The guy playing Thor, Hemsworth — good job. Arrogantly godlike but not over-the-top comically so. Natalie Portman, well, she’s always pretty good as an actress, even though the material she’s given doesn’t give her quite the same level of justification most material would give her, she plays it as well as you could expect.

    2) Kenneth Brannagh. This is the kind of “big” story he’d do well with (and does), considering his Shakespearean background. Giant stories of Titans and Gods and such, with fairly “uncomplex” moral and ethical bases.

    3) J. Michael Straczynski as one of the original story authors. This is the guy behind Babylon 5, and, by some accounts, the genesis of ST:DS9 (JMS originally proposed a station-based setting for the followup to ST:TNG, and provided them with an extensive workup of his concept for it, including character breakdowns and story arcs. At least some of the characters in DS9 strongly resemble those of his breakdown)

  58. It’s not like you lost ME or anything!

    Dude, we LOVED you, we weren’t going to take you out! No way!

    You were the best thing that ever happened to our cause! Hell, we didn’t even have to ask, and you did everything you could to help us destroy America! Cripes, you made *ME* look like a useless panty-waist with your efforts!
