Every girl wishes that her guy was a built-like-a-rock, hot, Australian, fallen god of thunder. Unfortunately, that make of man is out of stock. So, if you can’t have him you might as well spend 114 minutes eating popcorn watching Chris Hemsworth play him. Based off of the Marvel comic, Hemsworth plays Thor Odinson- who, when banished from his homeworld of Asgard must fight to regain the powers that were taken from him from his father. In a machevellian twist, we find out that Thor’s own brother Loki is behind Thor’s banishment, and he has no intention of letting his brother return to Asgard.
Thor is wildly entertaining, and the graphics are insane. I saw it when it came out in theatres in 3D, which was pretty cool. Having never read the comic series, I was pleasantly surprised at the very Shakespearean undertones of the storyline. I loved this movie so much I bought it on DVD and I have every intention of catching The Avengers this May, and the planned sequel to Thor (and I’m in no way a comic fan)!

Memorable Thor Quote:
“You know, for a crazy homeless person… he’s pretty cut.”
– Darcy, Thor 2011
Have you seen Thor? What did you think? If not, do you plan to see the Avengers or have you seen any other Marvel movies?
