TM2YC does it again, taking another film I don't have much of a fondness of and turning it into gold. Much of the changes made are smart ones, especially removing the pointless love triangle between Thor, Jane, and Lady Sif. Cutting out the opening prologue and instead re-inserting it as a flashback sequence when Odin tells Thor about the Aether is also a very wise move. I also loved how the dialogue for the Dark Elves is changed to lend it more gravitas and make them more interesting as characters, along with cutting much of the unnecessary exposition to keep things moving smoothly. A story and characters that were once uninteresting are now involving and given legitimate weight. I'm kind of shocked by how much I liked this. Absolutely the definitive version of this film.
