Thor Dark World Kicks Off Exciting Holiday Season

13 Nov


Obviously, I am a huge fan of the Avengers and particularly Loki. Thor is a lovely character but somehow Loki ends up stealing those scenes right out from underneath him. Loki is becoming quite similar to Tony Stark in the way that though he has a lot of negative qualities, you really want to root for him and believe that his good can overcome his evil. However Loki has the benefit of not knowing whether he really has any “good” to speak of, which makes him even more interesting. Tom Hiddleston does an amazing job portraying Loki and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Loki get his own movie in the near future. 

So Thor Dark World picks up after Avengers, with Jane and Darcy still working together, however Eric Selvig has gone on a holiday from sanity. Thor misses Jane and we are soon rewarded  with their reunion. IT WAS ADORABLE.  The plot ultimately unfolds around these gorgeous evil elf people trying to bring a literal end to the universe, plunging every world into darkness. This whole story is mildly interesting, but really makes this movie worth watching is of course, the family conflict between brothers Thor and Loki, and their parents Odin and Frigga.  As we know, Loki is adopted, or rather stolen, from his home of Johutenheim, where the frost giants reside. Loki greatly resents his father for this, but not his mother. Loki is also pissed that Thor is to be king when Loki fancies himself an excellent applicant for the position. However, Thor is correct in his observation that the throne would suit him ill. 

Jane is incorporated into the story in an interesting way after she touches this dark matter stuff. I think the whole dark matter thing will come into play for the next Avenger movie, after all The Avengers whole conflict was based around the tesseract, an item from Thor’s world. However, while this was noted and filed in my brain for later, what really makes the price of admission worth it is the comedy in this movie. They managed to squeeze so many jokes in here sometimes it throws off the tone of the movie a bit. Overall though, I can never really complain about a movie being too funny. 

Only downside? The goddamn 3D. No way to see this movie without having to watch it in 3D format. 3D didn’t benefit this movie in anyway so that was very irritating. Other than that, go see Thor Dark World right away!
