Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Director: Alan Taylor
It may sound like an exaggeration but I was counting down the days until I could see this movie. Luckily, I got to watch it last night and I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed. Thor, as a comic book character, has become one of my favorites so I have certain expectations I would like the movies to meet. Every single one of them was met.
The basis of the film is obviously to defeat the new bad guy, Malekith. Everything seemed to flow well with this story, even the tying in of Jane and Thor’s reunion. I definitely enjoyed the team of Thor and Loki, their bickering served as a good portion of the humor.
Now to discuss the acting, of course, everyone did a pretty amazing job. I do want to mention that Rene Russo put on a great performance in this film; I loved seeing that side of Frigga. This time around Hemsworth and Hiddleston actually made me cry, that didn’t even happen with the first film. I’ve heard some complaints about Eccleston as Malekith and personally, I believe he did really well.
One of the biggest highlights of this film was the cinematography. The movie offered so much when it came down to the scenery; I fell in love with it. I should also mention how happy I was with the large dose of Heimdall, Sif, and the Warriors Three.
I’m aware of how scattered this review is but I just love the film too much to organize my thoughts.

Despite not having read Ender’s Game in ten years, I think the film was done well. When I first heard they turned it into a movie, I was excited. After seeing it, I would say it wasn’t a big disappointment.
Okay, first of all, the script did need some work…just a little. I mean, the words didn’t really capture my attention so much as the cinematography. The film was beautifully done and the scenery was by far my favorite thing.
As far as the acting goes, I think everyone fit into their roles pretty well. The strongest performance would have to go to Asa Butterfield, I have zero complaints about him. He was perfect for Ender, in my eyes.
Personally, I think the entire film was worth sitting through.

Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey’s end
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore
Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You’re only sleeping

James Franco’s line “It’s like God’s vagina,” was actually originally improvised by Seth Rogen. James Franco told him it wasn’t funny, then used the line in the next take.
