Thor, a Mr. E Movie Review

Directed by Kenneth Branagh. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston.When actor Kenneth Branagh got the green light to direct the big screen adaptation of Marvel’s Thor nobody knew it was going to be this spectacular. In the lead role of the powerful but arrogant warrior god Thor is the perfectly cast Chris Hemsworth. If Thor is any indicator as to the thunderous summer that 2011 is shaping up to be, then we as movie fans need to get ready for the heat.

Quick rundown; Thor is preparing to be crowned king when an old enemy attempts a sneak attack. The attempted theft of an ancient relic causes Thor and his friends Sif, played by Jaimie Alexander, and the Warriors 3, played by Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, and Josh Dallas, along with Thor’s apparently supportive brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, to take matters into their own hands setting off the restart of an ancient war. Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins, is forced to confront his immature son and teach him a lesson by casting him out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sending him to live amongst humans on Earth. There he meets Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, a scientist whose been researching a strange phenomenon on Earth that’s linked to Thor’s home realm. Long story short, battles ensue as the three worlds collide in all its glory.

From the screenplay to the casting and the visual effects to the special “Easter eggs” Thor delivers all the action and adventure you’d expect from the Marvel franchise. If there where any downsides to the film its that you have only seen it once. Go see it again and you’ll find things you missed, scenes you didn’t take in fully, and experience a film that its even better on the second go around!

Go see Thor in theaters, it’s a must. I’m giving it a coveted 5 out of 5 stars!

    good review, I look forward to seeing this movie even more now. How would I go about writing for a local newspaper?

  2. Mr. E says:

    I would simply find all the papers being printed. Next, find out who ran that part of the paper. I contacted them asked if I could write for them as a fill in or just in case of an emergency. I submitted some samples. (Which anybody writing here, especially you, have tons of.) Maybe even follow up emails to them with a link to your page here. Pump up the fact that you’ve written hundreds of articles that they can see here and that they are emailed out to over 11,000 subscribers weekly, ie. you already have an audience! Also think tiny papers at first. Like the free ones. They are always in need of little space “filler” articles and a hot movie being reviewed can spice up their pages. Finally, just keep on them, visit them early on to say hi and give them a face to put to your name. (Wait too long and you might seem obsessed.)

    sounds good. I’ve been talking to the AJC but that’s too large of a publication, I figure, so I’m gonna look at the local free ones.
