Thor... the first big ass marvel film of the year, and it's an exciting year for comic book films in general. Wait I forgot about the new Ghost Rider film. Okay so it's a pretty good year for comic book films. The first from Marvel is the mighty Thor in 2D. Yes I went to see it in 2D because 3D is a waste of fucking time. I actually find it worrying that I refered to it as 2D. The fact that I feel the need to make that clear made me die a little inside. But this isn't another rant about 3D and the blight it's creating in the storytelling void that is Hollywoodland. It's a review of Thor motherfucker.
The film looks stunning and it appears Kenneth Branagh decided to make it a jaunty angle film. You know the style I mean. You suddenly find yourself turning your head to see it right. This calms down after the first 30 minutes or so. It's not a complaint, it works well in the first half of Thor's arrival on Earth. Oh that's not a spoiler by the way, it's happens in the first 2 minutes of the bloody film.
