Most people would recognize Kenneth Branagh as one of top Shakespearean actors or more recently for his role as Professor Lockhart.  His is a brilliant actor in just about everything he does (even though sometimes over acted), and although this is not his first stab at directing it is his first take at a film of such "epic" proportions. I will however be completely honest with you, if you attempt to go see Thor in 3D you are wasting your money.  There is NOTHING 3D about this …

   And so begins the summer; not with a whimper, but with a bang. Yes, Kenneth Branagh’s super-hero epic has arrived, and it’s… really quite good, actually, provided you just put your brain into neutral and let the sheer energy of it all roll over you. The story tells the tale of Thor (Chris Hemsworth, who is certainly not the worst-looking man ever filmed), a young Asgardian about to be made heir to the throne by his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). In the background …

The title to this post is in no way true... but it got your attention.      This  past weekend I happened to catch "Thor," the latest super hero movie destined to culminate in the fanboy joygazm that will soon be know as "The Avengers."  Now before I saw this movie I heard a great many mixed reviews from a great many people: "It's the greatest super hero movie ever," "It was totally gay," "The only thing redeeming was …

Three years ago on a rainy Friday night I sat in a semi-crowded theater and saw Jon Favreau’s larger-than-life adaptation of Iron Man. It wasn’t just the first film I was able to drive myself to go see, but it was also one of the single coolest theater-going experiences of my life. Something clicked that night. Maybe it was the overwhelming sense of freedom that came in the form of seeing a mega-blockbuster with my new driver’s license, maybe it was Robert Downey Jr.’s charisma …

12A - 114mins - Action/Adventure/Drama - 27th April 2011 The Marvel comic book creation is unleashed into the movie world which is growing desperately thin on new and original pieces of work. In recent years Marvel (Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man) has given us from average to good but never great with the best of them tending to arrive from the first movie of the series with the new superhero (Hulk is emphatically excluded from this sweeping generalisation). Thor, as the first …

Kenneth Branagh seems like an odd choice to direct a summer blockbuster superhero film.  Branagh was almost singlehandedly responsible (with a nod to Baz Luhrman) for the Shakespeare revival we saw in the ’90s; he brought 5 excellent, commercially successful adapations of the Bard to the screen in a space of ten years, before seeing the audience’s appetite for couplets and corsets wane in the 2000s.  Even when he’s not directing Shakespeare, his tastes run more classical; …

Star Rating:         Kenneth Branagh’s Thor is essentially two movies fighting for the same space, and only one of them emerges victorious. That would be the one that takes place in the title character’s realm of Asgard. What it boils down to is a reliable but exciting feud between brothers over who is more worthy to ascend the throne. In the one corner, we have Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who in Norse mythology would be the god of thunder; a mighty warrior, …

The latest Marvel comic based film has arrived and continues a trend of top-notch cinematic adaptations of Marvel characters. THOR stars Chris Hemsworth as the brash and bold Asgard warrior who is next in line for the kingdoms thrown. His father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), has ruled the kingdom for many years and as such has been responsible for maintaining the peace for Asgard and all the other known realms. After being surprised by an incursion by an ancient enemy previously defeated by Odin, the …

   Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the God of Thunder, is the son of Odin (Anthony Hopkins), the ruler of the nine realms of the Universe. Thor possesses a hammer that gives him an unmatched power. Odin sees in him a worthy successor to the throne. Wow... what a sharp and weird beginning for this review... Should I?... Nope. Let's continue...      His brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) grows up and develops great envy towards him and finds himself in an ongoing search for a …

Quite an alright film if you just want another launch pad for a new franchise. I see this as a 'baby step' towards a possible more definitive Thor Film. Reducing the script to the formula of humor and low characterization is a rushed way to make a superhero movie. Better than the 'puke-tacular" Fantastic Four" and may be on par with Iron Man 2, thankfully.      Good for what it is, an uninspired, easy to like, popcorn superhero flick done by Hollywood …
