Reed (Ioan Gruffud) and Sue (Jessica Alba) are about to get married. But being a superhero couple makes having an undisturbed wedding rather difficult, especially since a series of global disturbances just caught Reed’s attention. But when a mysterious silver surfer crashes their wedding and causes a lot of destruction in New York, they realize that the disturbances are not actually limited to Earth itself.
I was talking with Arysuh about never having seen this film or the one before and that culminated in me watching and livetweeting both films while drinking vodka. You can read the entire thing after the jump, in lieu of a proper review. For a short summary know this: 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer is abysmal. Not even alcohol makes it funny and I was cringing throughout most of the film. It’s sexist and boring. If you value your sanity, stay away.
After yet another attack by the Frost Giants on Asgard, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) loses his cool and together with his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) pays them a rather violent visit. Their father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) is less than happy about this and decides to ban Thor to Earth until he’s learned his lesson and is less rash. On Earth, scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) stumbles upon Thor and doesn’t really know what to do with him. And if it wasn’t challenging enough for Thor to try and return to Asgard, a shitload of trouble is brewing with Loki.
Even on re-watching, Thor is an absolutely entertaining and fun-filled film with a great cast and really good pacing. I enjoyed the hell out of it again.
