Friday Night Date Night

Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.

Sticking with my theme of Marvel characters I decided to check out the movie Thor.  Now I've heard some good and some bad things about Thor (both the movie and the character) and I wanted to check it out for myself.  While others may portray Thor as arrogant and impulsive, this movie not only shows that aspect of his life but also shows how he grows as a person and a future king. 

As for the movie itself, I wasn't a fan.  It was darker than I expected and I wanted more comedy and romance.  There was a lot of fighting and it was more Sci-Fiction/Fantasy than I'm used to.  However, I love how all of these Marvel/Superhero movies seem to set the scene for The Avengers.  I really like how all The Avengers had their own movies first and parts of their movies contain background for the movie The Avengers. 

One good thing about Thor was Chris Hemsworth.  Yikes he is major drool worthy in this movie, especially when his shirt is off and I'm kind of digging the longer shaggy hair.  He played the part of Thor well and I was easily convinced he was the almighty Thunder God.  The acting was great in this movie, the plot just wasn't for me. 

However, I still suggest seeing this movie if nothing else at least for the tie-in for The Avengers.


  1. This movie wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...that may be because I knew nothing about Thor's background.

  2. I didn't really loved the movie, but Thor, the guy, was worth it! :)


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
