Greetings. I am now back and rested from my overseas trip. Had a wonderful time in Barcelona and was able to relax having seen that Kitten and Rachel were doing such a great job keeping you guys up to date with all the great Natalie news.
As I get back up to speed, I thought I’d do a post about the Thor: The Dark World reviews. I don’t believe there has been an update about them yet so…
There are currently 15 reviews up on Rotten Tomatoes and the score is a very promising 87% fresh. However, the average rating is only 6.9, which indicates that a lot of the positive reviews are just lukewarm. My issue with the Marvel films is that, while never bad, they’re also very rarely anything great either. Sounds like Thor 2 is going to be more of the same, which is admittedly a win for Marvel and for most film goers out there.
Here are a few sample quotes from the reviews…
Thor: The Dark World delivers the goods – action, otherworldly grandiosity, romance, humor – above and beyond its predecessor.
Though it uses some spotty logic and galactic-sized plot contrivances to get it over the finish line, Thor: The Dark World is never less than breathlessly entertaining.
This robust, impersonal visual-effects showpiece proves buoyant and unpretentious enough to offset its stew of otherwise derivative fantasy/action elements.
It feels entirely made by committee – the definition of house style, without a personal stamp in sight.
