A new review from The Movie Snob.
Thor: The Dark World (C-). I really liked the first Thor movie, for reasons that now escape me, but the sequel pretty much left me cold. There’s lots of blizzblazz about Dark Elves and a once-every-5000-years convergence that’s going bring the nine realms (or are there seven?) into contact with each other, and a super-weapon called Aether that looks kind of like red food coloring that’s immune to gravity for some reason. And there’s lots of CGI and titanic battles in which Thor’s hammer sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. I did chuckle at some of the wry remarks by Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Kat Denning’s character, but otherwise there just wasn’t much to enjoy in this loud comic-book movie. I say you can skip this one.
