Review:

Thor, Chris Hemsworth, must put the nine kingdoms back in order after the destruction of the rainbow bridge and Loki’s shenanigans gave the wrong people some ideas. Once that’s taken care of he moons over his lost lust partner Jane Foster, Natalie Portman. Jane is on Earth and has waited for Thor two years with no contact. So she decides to date again and picks Chris O’Dowd, a wise choice. Sadly, science calls her away and next thing she knows she’s in another dimension and aether has infiltrated her body.

When she disappears from view and Thor is unable to get an update on her, he rushes to Earth where he is properly slapped.

Meanwhile, Loki is in jail where his mother, Frigga, Rene Russo, is the only one to visist him. She loves him, he loves her, he acts like a petulant child, and then his mother ends up dying. It’s sad, but Frigga went out like the queen she was. Loki dies, again, but not really.

So Dark Elves are a thing, they want to destroy the universe for some reason, or at least their corner of it. Thankfully, through the power of science and might they are thwarted.

Then the good stuff happens. Thor and Jane kiss, he goes back home, tells his father, who is now Loki, that he is going to stay on Earth. He returns, and you KNOW he and Jane do it. Next thing you know he’s single. So my theory is that he’s a lousy lay. It’s a sad day, it truly is, I don’t want to think it, but I really can’t come to any other conclusion. She waited years for him, finally gets him, and then dumps him. Lady Sif, Jamie Alexander, dodged a bullet. It’s just…it’s something to think about people.

Anyway, I’ve watched this movie twice, the most recent time just a few hours ago and I barely remember it. I believe there is a spell on it so that you can’t remember it. There were a lot of pretty scenes, the CGI was much better than the last Thor movie, but it dragged in a lot of places. It was much too long and that’s all I have to say about that.

2.75/5
