Butt Thor

Before I get into Thor: The Dark World (2013), I wanted to get something off my chest: I think my blogging has been extra sucky lately. First, let me repeat what I think I am doing with this blog. I want to write about the movies I watch on Netflix in ways that are:
  • Informative - tell you something about the movie
  • Interesting - include something that you won't hear somewhere else, maybe just a little turn of phrase
  • Short - wrap it up befoe you get bored
I think I'm doing a pretty good job on the last one only. To be more informative, I'd have to pay more attention to the movies I watch and maybe do some serious thinking about them. To be interesting, well, that's a tall order...

So, Thor: TDW. You know we liked Thor pretty much, but I have to admit I was a little let down considering it was directed by Kenneth Freakin' Branagh. Didn't have that problem with The Dark World because it was directed by Alan Taylor (who's done mostly TV). I liked some of the look, especially Asgard. Psycho Stellan Skarsgard was fun. But in the end, I was mostly just entertained. I just don't have much to say about it. In fact, I almost forgot to post this - almost forgot I saw it.

Well, I could spend a little more time talking about why my posts haven't been more interesting and informative, but then this one wouldn't be short. So, sorry about the suck; I'll try to do better.

I've always found your posts witty and informative. Usually I get a chuckle out of your "in conclusions." I do skip over the Asian martial arts stuff though, but that's just me. I sometimes disagree with some small points you've made on movies we've both seen, but I have a big heart and can forgive those lapses of judgment after a time. You just keeping writing them and I'll keep reading them.
