He Laid the Hammer Down

'Thor: The Dark World' is able to overcome the slight inconveniences I had with the first simply due to the fact that it is a sequel and is free to let loose, story wise. This sequel, unlike 'Iron Man 3', does much to further the universe created by the previous Marvel films. Though, it does this seamlessly while still working as a standalone effort. Those minor problems I had before are mostly gone. A substantial portion of the film takes place in Asgard and other reams, the action is abundant, and the humor is improved upon. There's still the addition of a couple needless characters and one side-plot, but the overall tone feels more balanced. It's just more enjoyable than it's predecessor, especially in the latter half. I only wish there had been more scenes between Thor and Loki...

Review: Thor The Dark World

While it's certainly not one of the best or most memorable of the bunch, Thor: The Dark World, made by Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor, is an enjoyable and visually remarkable entry in the Marvel movie machine. It has its fun moments and a few truly great ones, but this whole ordeal ends up feeling like just another Marvel film. Now that The Avengers came out and basically raised the bar for the future of Marvel films, anything that's too inferior to that (and too similar, as a matter of fact) just feels a little disappointing. It's not that this is a bad film - it has its awesome moments - it's just it gives us much, much more of the same.

Let's start with what these movies are essentially all about - the effects. They're terrific. Rich in detail and vibrancy, the special effect...

Dark Times Bring Out the Best

I admit that I found the original Thor to be one of the weaker Marvel entries. It was a bit too corny with not nearly enough meat on the bones. Yet much like Iron Man 3 was a step above the Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World takes a step in the right direction and turns out much better than the first time around.

After a brief history lesson involving the dark elves, Aether and Asgardians - we catch up with our hero, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as he works to quell the final resistance of the "Nine Worlds" while his Earth-bound love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is quietly going on with her life (even dating) when she is interrupted by her effervescent assistant Darcy (Kat Dennings) as an interesting anomaly appears. Before you can say "don't touch that" Jane finds herself the vess...

A Must See Blockbuster

A great continuation of the Marvel comic saga, and a solid fantasy/science fiction movie in its own right, "Thor: The Dark World" is as much fun as the highly entertaining first "Thor" movie. The special effects and all other technical credits are outstanding. Be sure to see the movie in 3D, as it is extremely well done. Alan Taylor brings a bit of grit to the movie, but don't expect "Game Of Thrones" here. This is still a fun Marvel superhero movie, so there is plenty of humor. Maybe too much in fact as the humor is sometimes over the top. The movie also features several terrific action set-pieces, the best coming in the middle of the movie when Malekith, the Dark Elf, leads a full out attack on Asgard. This is a fantastic sequence, and the final climax back on Earth in London whi...

To infinity and beyond!

Well, after having now witnessed the direction of Alan Taylor, one thing is for sure: I'm watching Game of Thrones.

Alan Taylor's style is perfectly completed with masterful visuals and great storytelling. When I heard the director of some Game of Thrones episodes was taking over Thor, I was very skeptical, but also relieved that it wasn't Kenneth Branagh again (don't get me started on the angles in that movie).
So, I can forthwith testify to having seen one of the most beautiful superhero movies in cinemas when it came out, because Thor: The Dark World is an absolute triumph in visual effects and cinematography. Seriously. Like 'Sam and Frodo on Mount Doom' level direction. It was immaculate.

It was great to see two charismatic leads back in action again, namely Chris Hemsworth an...
