Review

The movie was excellent. I was expecting little from the Mjolnir but they did an amazing animation job on it. Chris Hemsworth eerily sounded like the late Heath Ledger. Australians. Natalie Portman is always as lovely while Kat Dennings injected the funnies. Wait after the end credits.

Verdict

Repeat again and again.

 

In the beginning, there were mutants.

Review

Nice storyline. Perfect cast. Effects was nothing special. Jennifer Lawrence is a breakthrough. I like Logan’s cameo.

Verdict

Two times is okay.

    excellent pics. I came to thor with zero expectations, since I was never really a Thor fan.
    If you asked me in another couple of month to tell you about any sequence in Thor I would probably not be able to remember much of anything, but while I was with it I’m sure I never looked at my watch and I had more fun than I was ready for.
