Happy Friday everyone!
Before I get into my review of the Thor 2 movie, I want to announce the November LOTFW giveaway! The giveaway is now live and the deadline to enter is Sunday, December 15th. There are some very cool prizes this time around including a $25 Amazon gift card. To enter, click here.
For those of you paying attention, I know I announced it will be live November 16th, but hey, I got it done
Now, on to the review...Thor: The Dark World! I thought the movie was a good sequel to the first Thor movie starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. Also, I want to mention that co-star Kat Dennings was great in this film and delivered her role as comic relief very well.
There were a couple of rumors floating around the internet that the wonderful actor Tom Hiddleston would not be returning as fan favorite villian Loki, half-brother to Thor, or even worse, the character dying in the sequel. John Campea, AMC Editor and Chief, talked about the buzz or rumor surrounding this on AMC Movie Talk, which if you're interested you can watch below. Other than that, you will have to see the movie to find out the fate of Loki.
Overall, I enjoyed it and the special effects were fantastic. Returning to Asgard was visually an epic experience and as I mentioned above, seeing Tom Hiddleston return as Loki was a two thumbs up! I give the movie 4 out of 5 stars and I recommend it as a must see with family and/or friends.
