Thor: The Dark World (2013)Thor was one of those comic book adaptations that I was pretty sure… More Thor was one of those comic book adaptations that I was pretty sure wasn't going to translate well to the screen. Think about it. Demi-Gods. Asgard. A man who twirls and throws oversized war hammers while himself flying around... The original "THOR" was a surprise delight. No, it's not a perfect film, and no, it won't change your life. Taken at face value, it is nothing more than a fun popcorn film, and within those boundaries, "Thor" was a fun film. Call me a sceptic, but when I found out most of "Thor 2" would take place on Asgard, that the antagonists would be "Evil Elves," the doubts came flooding in again. Reluctantly, I saw "Thor 2" with very low expectations. Now, is this a perfect film? Will the sequel change your life? No. No it won't. But it is an enjoyable popcorn film, like it's predecessor before it. Is it better than the first "Thor"? Yes. Yes it is. In fact, the only two things I could really find to nit pick over this film was: the foil between Lady Siv and Jane Foster. There was none. The romance between Sif and Thor could have been interesting, and opened the floodgates to a love triangle. Love triangles lead to some great drama...but that entire segment of the story was just an afterthought, which was too bad. The other nit pick I have, is a common one with most films I see today. The development of the main antagonist was completely ignored. Malekith. King of the evil Dark Elves with the pupilless black soulless eyes. He's...boring. One dimensional. We don't really understand what drives him. What he wants. Who he is. Where he comes from. In fact, we know NOTHING about Malekith at all! NOTHING. I know that underdeveloped villains is a big pet peeve of mine, but for some reason, even despite this flaw, "Thor 2" still manages to entertain and delight. Again, it's no masterpiece. But "Thor 2" is a lot of fun at the movies. By the way, if anyone understands the 1st of the 2 mini credit clips, the one with Benicio Del Torro, please explain it to me. I just have no idea what it was and I found myself not caring one bit.
