As we left the theatre, I heard some dude say, “I like that there were so many of the same moments like the first one.” And that is what is wrong with The Hangover Part II.
This morning, Randy “Macho Man” Savage died in a car accident. He’s most well-known as a former WWF Champion (back when that used to mean something) and a huge wrestling star of the 1980’s.

Thor is a great movie. There are no two ways around it. So much of a high-concept popcorn flick like this really depends on quality performances and Chris Hemsworth stands head and shoulders above the rest.
