    Hello MR,

    Please help me with this extremely serious issue.

    So tomorrow, I have to decide between two movies. Both movies are movies I really really want to see but unfortunately I can only see one. Yes, I can watch another movie on sunday but I rather just watch one movie per weekend so the other movie will have to wait a week, and I just dont know if my body can handle that wait.

    With that being said, do you, my beautiful MR peers, recommend I watch Thor 2 or Enders Game. I loved Thor 1 and I loved Enders Game the book. IM SO TORN.

    Bad Grandpa is also high on my list. Im still beating myself up for missing out on Rush as well :( I heard that movie was excellent.

    I vote for Thor (I do want to see Ender's Game though)

    Haha, all three movies (Thor, Enders Game, Bad Grandpa) has very similar rotten tomatoes rating. Makes the decision so much harder i assume!

    Personally, I have no desire to see Bad Grandpa. Thor looks good to me.

    Just got back from Enders Game. Looked at my watch three times during the movie. Never a good sign.

    Watched Thor 2 the other week. Not that bad. But both films are decidedly average.

    See them all, (not necessarily on the same day though). That will solve your problem. Pick the first one, then later that day/night or the following day see another.

    maflynn, that would just be an overload. :p
    I wouldn't be able to appreciate each movie if i watch them in rapid succession.

    With that being said, the winner is....



    Thor 2. Thank you macrumors for helping me make this decision.

    I too was quite torn over how to reply to your post. I decided to sleep on it and make my decision after a solid night's sleep. While I have made my decision, after some very deep soul searching, I am now confronted with deep pangs of doubt about sharing that thought with you all, torn you might say...

    Enders Game...

    Ideally, you should watch Thor 1 a week or less before going to Thor 2 so you can spot all the homages and tributes.

    I come from the future to post an answer to your question using iThought. You should see....sorry...it's not true. I'm not from the future and after viewing the movie trailers I recommend staying home and settle in with a tech sheet.

    I thought the original Thor was better and I'm very suspicious of Ender's game, the movie. (I read the book.)

    I enjoyed the "lighter tone" that thor 2 had. I thought Tom Hiddleston did a better job as loki in 2 than in 1.

    Thor 2's loki was more comparable to the loki in avengers than in the one in thor 1.

    This is good to hear. I hated the first. It sucked so badly.

    It took me a while to warm up to Loki, but I thought his presence in both Avengers and Thor 2 was outstanding.

    To The OP: Seriously, are you serious about this, um, thread? Candidly, I have some difficulty understanding why such a topic merits its own thread.....but there you are...

    To Apple fanboy:
    A splendid post, which I up voted, by the way......

    Go see Thor. Don't see Ender's Game until you can do it without putting money in OSC's pocket.
