Welcome back everyone to my Marvel movie series! I’m kicking it back up with a discussion about Thor: The Dark World and I can’t wait to discuss the rest of the films in this super fun and exciting universe.
What I love most about the Thor films is how it feels like it’s in a universe all its own even as it connects back to earth for different parts. Half the time during the film my brain goes into full art appreciation mode and I think “wow.. that’s so cool” approximately every 5 seconds, but I mean.. look at Asgard:
Plus look at the ships and say that doesn’t spark some childlike excitement:
But, what I also loved the most was the brothers working together after Loki being arrested in Thor.
I loved the humor between them and how Loki was proud of Thor for being distrustful of Loki and tricking him a bit for once. But, I also love that no matter how mischievous and evil Loki can be in his heart he is in his own way loyal to his family. Or at least to his mother. But, I would say that he does hold a brotherly love for Thor deep down in that grey green soul of his.
I like each Thor movie more then the last. (I can’t wait to discuss Thor: Ragnorok: A+ film). This go around I noticed a few things in the film I didn’t notice before.
One the green flash surrounding this guard:
Which was a tell tell sign that no Loki wasn’t actually dead (though I doubt anyone really believed he died).
Two professor Erik Selvig says there was a God in his head?
Which after some digging is related to when Loki controlled Erik’s mind with the staff in Thor, but why has no one else ever gotten mad from that? Hawkeye has been controlled and he’s mentally a-ok.. why did it make Erik crazy, but also filled with so much more knowledge then everyone else. It’s a bit of a curiosity for me.
3 this was the beginning of Jane moving on and honestly she deserves someone who can be by her side always and not just sometimes:
Honestly, I never really liked Jane and Thor’s relationship. Yes, they have physical chemistry, but I don’t really see it being much more then that. Yeah it looks great on screen, but there’s none of the balance in the relationship like there is with Tony Stark and Pepper or even Hawkeye and his wife (though we never get too much of their relationship). But, this dinner shows that Jane doesn’t want to be left alone with no explanation anymore, yes Thor has a fantastic reason, but he doesn’t really give Jane anything to work with.. and when you loose all communication in a relationship with no precedence for it the relationship starts to die. It’s hard to be on your own making up a billion stories in your head about how someone else is thinking or feeling when everything could be cleared up with a simple bit of communication in some way. Either way, she doesn’t like feeling left out in the cold and she deserves to have someone whose there for her, just like everyone does.
In general, I really enjoyed this film. The battle scenes were great. I love the humor. Love the brotherly relationship. Love the mix of science and magic. The convergence parts were super cool to look at. The antigravity parts too were super cool. In my nerd brain I brand this movie as cool. It may not be my favorite in the marvelverse, but it’s a fun movie all around.
