Thor: The Dark World (2013)

Director: Alan Taylor. Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgård, Chris O'Dowd, Benicio Del Toro. 112 min. Rated PG-13. Action/Fantasy.

Okay, I get it. Marvel is on this crusade of mass producing superhero movies, because each character needs multiple sequels before they can prepare for the next Avengers movie; to the extent that the "secret" post-credits sequence is now becoming more fruitful and interesting than the movie itself. People's hands get chopped off and grow back out, characters keep on dying and coming back to life again, because hey, we need them for the next movie. No story, no imagination, nothing new. Not even Hiddleston as the great villain Loki can prevent this insult to the intelligence (and the pocket).

  1. Cinema is truly subject. Whatever I see movies I feel this fact more and more. I really enjoyed the movie. If I want to name one of the best sci-fic/fantasy/superhero works of this year I'll absolutely name it. How amazing such a different perception.?

    1. Very funny! I don't know ... I just feel nobody wants to take any risk on superhero movies, to add something new. They just re-hash the same storylines again and again. I thought the last scene (when one character comes back to life) was extremely irritating.
