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 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.
