What can I say about Thor that hasn’t already been bellowed from every other blog mountain? I liked it, didn’t love it. It was enjoyable, but not necessarily good. Performances all around were solid. But I guess I should fill out a few paragraphs right? I can’t just say “it’s worth your money but not your 3D money” and then move on can I? Ok fine, here we go.
I’ll divulge this at the start since it might explain my feelings for this new incarnation of The Wolfman: of all the classic Universal monsters, I’ve seen the least amount of werewolf films. In fact, the only two I can even recall watching were Teen Wolf and An American Werewolf in London. I don’t particularly have anything against this sub genre, I just haven’t been afforded the opportunity as often as vampire films nor have I seen as many Wolfman related porno flicks as I’ve seen of the Frankenstein variety. All that aside, I was genuinely excited to see this movie. I like Benicio Del Toro quite a bit and Anthony Hopkins, although some would say he’s been coasting for the last decade, is always an easy sell for me. Hell, I even pushed aside the rumored production issues this film seemed to incur for the past two years. But then I got to theater on Monday and some interesting things started happening. Read what happened after the jump.
