The Mighty Thor: Movie Review

Well I just got back from Thor. I’ve been jazzed to see this since I saw his hammer at the end of Iron Man 2. Note: there is more to see after the credits of Thor so stick around. I had never read much Thor when I collected comic books. I started right around the time that Thor was gone/dead/missing and Eric Masterson had to take over. I don’t remember the stories now since that was 20 years ago but I do remember liking it. Even so, that was really the origins of Thunderstrike, not Thor.

From what I know about Norse mythology, the Asgards were not too badly portrayed. Growing up, I had been under the impression that Loki was the god of mischief. Later in my college years, I was told that Loki was the Norse god of fire but he was also a very clever god, responsible for helping the other gods obtain many of their relics. There was no mention of a god of fire in the movie.

Over all the movie was better than I expected it to be. I’m not sure if I liked it as much as I did Iron Man, though it has to be close. Iron Man has been one of my most favorite of the new comic book movies. Natalie Portman gets more gorgeous every time I see her. I can’t rate her ability to act because every time she smiles on screen I’m too busy swooning. Idris Elba was pretty cool as Heimdall. I was impressed with his character Stringer Bell in the Wire (horribly boring show) as the drug deal who goes to college to learn more about business. I also recently watched the first series of Luther, a show Idris stars in over in the United Kingdom.

Over the last six months I’ve been dealing with a vendor that sells licensed Marvel t-shirts. I’ve got a few Thor shirts and some of them are really bad ass. You can see them on eBay:
