Let's just get this out there to begin with.
Yes, Chris Hemsworth is hot.
Yes, Loki is pretty much the best Marvel villain.
Yes, there are bonus scenes after the credits. Two of them, in fact.
We good? Good. Moving on.
I have never read a comic book in my life, but I really enjoy pretty much all Marvel movies. For me, the actors really make it. Iron Man IS Robert Downey Jr. Thor IS Chris Hemsworth. Captain America IS Chris Evans. The movies are generally strong and deliver on exactly what they are supposed to - action and fun characters. Combine that with killer release schedules and you have a win at the box office. 2012's top grossing film was The Avengers coming in at $1.5 billion worldwide gross. So far this year, the number one film is Iron Man 3 with $1.2 worldwide. The public agrees ...
Thor: The Dark World is a good movie, just like most of the other Marvel movies. It delivers on action, adventure, some romance, evil villains and fantastical characters. That's really all that you need. Throw in some IMAX and 3D for good measure and you are in good shape. It's not amazing by any means and it won't win any Oscars, but it is very enjoyable and a great film to see in theaters.
See it. And see it in theaters on the big screen in the way that movies like this are supposed to be enjoyed.
