    Default Have you watched Thor and...

    ...the first 5 minute of the movie you immediately think of SW? ..not a spoiler btw since you'll see them so early

    With the Tundra Orcs (Frost Giant) battling Guild Dwarves (Asgardians)... and the similarity dont stop here, the king of Asgardians is Odin which is pretty much Oldin, they both got white bushy beard for crying out loud lol, then you got Thorkur which spell and card art look similar to Thor with the red cape and stuff

    Those Frost Giant's minion in the movie also look hell lot like TO's fighter especially how they stand around group up together, their leader also reminds me of Grognack with their red eyes!! ... then there is that Krung-like beast

    i always thought of the Tundra Orcs as a version of the Ice Giants. Not quite Marvel one's, but the most lore/generic sort.

    Btw, opinion of the movie? I on the fence to go and watch it still, thought reports have been good. I guess it's more classic Thor than Ultimate Thor version.

    Movie was meh but entertaining nonetheless, it aint no Iron 1 or Batman for sure

    It's meant to be a pop corn action flick with a little bit more hearts to the script

    Oh and dont watch it in 3D, not worth it and 3D loses lot of color in the movie, making it look blend

    I was actually considering starting this thread after seeing it last weekend. However, I was going to compare Thor to Gror (Hammer Quake!) and I feel like Marvel (and furthermore the Norse) had the ideas before Truth did. Besides, I've always called Oldin Odin. It's just such an obvious reference.

    Yeah, stereotypical dwarves, like the GD, have always been knid of Norse.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the movie was that the Frost Giants were TO. Grognack was the leader and there was Krung (who went out like a chump).

    Also I kept calling Odin, Oldin.

    The FG king even has an Artifact of Power that enables him to cast Icy Spells!

    Though that wimpy giant ice dog did not look at all like Krung, IMO.

    Yeah! I watched the Thor movie, this is the greatest movie that I have ever seen before but the suspense of avengers is included in this movie is not so good but better luck for next time for a single movie.
