Blu Ray Tuesday #6

I realise only just now that I broke my Jurassic Park review streak. I may watch it next week but really, JP3 isn’t that great. Not sure if I want to watch it again!

The movie:


The menu: PIZZAS!!!

I really liked this movie. It started off slowly and I confess I was a little bored with all the Viking gods hanging out in their city in the sky but once Thor hits earth, I was back on board. The movie made me proper laugh out loud several times (mainly due to good old fashioned comedy ie people falling over).

Whilst I didn’t quite believe Natalie Portman as a scientist, I was willing to suspend my disbelief because Natalie and Thor had great chemistry together and made me ‘cheesy grin’ whenever they shared the screen together. So darn cute!! Also the bad guy wasn’t just ‘one dimension’ bad guy, I liked that storyline too. Actually all the side characters were really great- well written and well acted, providing a lot of the fun.

Thor’s dyed eyebrows were a bit distracting though. Girl Roomie and I kept needing to comment on them.

Mainly I watched it so that I’d be all up to speed for ‘The Avengers’ when it comes out next year. Can’t wait! There was a great scene at the end of the credits, teasing ‘The Avengers’. Ok, two posts in a row talking about ‘The Avengers’… I’m not a rabid fangirl, I promise!! (Maybe a tiny bit of a fangirl but I’m not too bad!)

Recommended? Yes, a fun summer movie with laughs and action. It’s just under two hours long and it *does* feel that long but if you’re looking for a movie to watch, you can’t really go wrong with this one.

Oooh...I want to see Thor! It's on my "to watch" list but haven't gotten to it yet. Now it's safe to say I will be staring at his eyebrows once I do see it. The Avengers is going to be pretty darn epic for sure...and if it's not...that's be super disappointing!

I really liked this movie, surprisingly so!
I think even I would make scrambled eggs and wear flannelette after 24 hours with Natalie Portman.

YAY for cheesy grin inducing scenes. But boo for badly dyed brows. Thank you for having such entertaining movie reviews...they make me smile. ;)

I don't think I would like this one.....but if all else fails I might rent it. :)

I really wanted to see this when it was at the movies. So I will definitely be downloading it.
