The problem with having this short of a runtime is that it's hard to keep track of what's going on, some much of the plot is explained through quick dialogue scenes that it's easy to let half of it go right over your head. Lots of questions will be left in your head when you're done watching this film, and that's probably due to the fact that they had four (or more) writers in-charge (instead of just one, which would have made this a much more consistent film). Despite those gripes, this Thor film surprisingly still manages to shine with plenty of great action to offer, strong performances (from Hemsworth and Hiddleston especially), neat twists along the way and some very excellent humour scenes (despite there being a bit too much of it in the first-half, the second-half finds it's footing quite well, and there's a really funny gag during the final battle that made the whole theatre erupt). All-in-all, if you enjoyed the first Thor even just a wee bit, you'll certainly like this film, no question about that.

Probably the worst movie I've ever seen even though it had a few people in it who would go on to be bigger stars (Alyson Hannigan, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini). I thought at least Mark Paul Gosselaar would be hot enough in it to keep my attention but THAT wasn't even the case. So sad.

Plot: The story is set at this grand hotel in Berlin where Baron Felix von Geigern is there to steal a necklace from a Russian ballerina named Grusinskaya. But while he is planning this, he befriends a very nice old man named Kringelein who is dying of an illness and his spending his money on the hotel to make the most of life, and also becomes interested in a stenographer named Flaemmchen who is assisting her boss in a business deal. But one night while Felix is trying to steal Grusinskaya's necklace, she comes to her room unaware of him and is stressing about her career and is tempted to commit suicide, but he stops her and they engage in conversation overnight and become attracted to each other to the point where she decides to offer him to come with her to Vienna. Felix agrees and so decides to find a way to get the money to go. This movie I thought was just nice. The story was good, the characters have a nice amount of charm (especially Kringelein), and it was just nicely acted. I think my issue with it was that it didn't cling on too me as much as I would've hoped on a whole. I mean I'm not saying it's bad, I mean I know it's a good film, that's why I'm rating it a 70%, but somehow I wasn't as appealed as I wanted to. I have no idea why, but that's just me. But I will say that what happens roughly close to the end of the movie did make it much more interesting. Because while possibly not everyone will like what happened, that's roughly when I started to be more interested in what was happening to these characters. In fact, I wish there was more to the story then what they gave us considering certain characters. But I digress. So that's basically my review for Grand Hotel. It may have taken a while before I could really get into it and even, I wish there could be more, but it's still a nice movie with good story and characters and is all around a good best picture winner to watch from those days...I mean it definitely beats the crap out of Cimarron and Broadway Melody (I know that's from the 20's) if not anything else.

Very dated yes, still has its zany appeal that I remember from when I fist watched it. I like the whole plot of twist of when astronauts first land on the moon and discover some evidence that they are not the first and in fact somebody has been there some 60 years before they had in 1899, after that it does become a tad silly however but that aside an enjoyable watch
