Thor: The Dark World


Describe it in 25 words or less.

Pete: Thor must fight to save earth and Jane Foster from a new internal and external threat.

Brigette: Thor must save the nine worlds from the Dark Elves.

Morgan: A hilarious and action packed film about two brothers (and famous Gods) who are trying to fight off the evil Dark Elves.

Gable: The funny and exciting sequel to Thor.


Pete: Fantasy/Science Fiction

Brigette: Comic Book Adaptation

Morgan: Action/Blockbuster

Gable: Family/Action

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pete: Darcy Lewis because she was so funny.

Brigette: It is really hard to choose just one, but I would have to say Darcy because she’s so hilarious.

Morgan: Darcy, because she was hilarious!

Gable: Thor because he was the hero and was very smart.

Who was your least favorite character and why?

Pete: Malekith because he was relentlessly evil and I’ve never met a Dark Elf that I could trust.

Brigette: Odin because he was so stubborn and set in his ways.

Morgan: The Dark Elves, because they creeped me out.

Gable: Malekith because he was evil.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?

Pete: Grabbed me immediately, so much so that it seemed to be over far too quickly.

Brigette: It grabbed me immediately and was so entertaining that it didn’t feel like it was 2 hours long.

Morgan: Grabbed me immediately and had me throughout the whole film.

Gable: It grabbed me immediately and it was funny and exciting throughout.

Favorite quote:

Pete: “Perhaps next time we should START with the big one” -Fandral

Brigette: “You must think I am a piece of bread that needs to be buttered so heavily.” – Odin

Morgan & Gable: “I’d rather be a good man than a great king.” – Thor

How was the soundtrack?

Brigette: The score by Brian Tyler is excellent with my favorite being the Marvel Studios Fanfare. You can listen to it on YouTube here.

Is it part of a series and have you seen the rest of the series?

Pete: I’ve seen ‘Thor’ and loved it, although I thought this film was better in many ways. It would be great if it was a series…

Brigette: I’ve seen the first Thor film and hope there are more to come.

Morgan: We have seen the first Thor film, but I must say, this is definitely a much better film than the first one!

Gable: I have seen Thor and it was good. You have to watch Thor first to understand this one but you should be more satisfied with this one if you like your films funny but exciting.

How was the ending?

Pete: Amazing and hopefully eluding to another Thor film.

Brigette: Unexpected and open-ended.

Morgan: It made me think that there could possibly be a third film.

Gable: Unexpected.

What was the moral of the story?

Pete: Sometimes you must give up something in order to gain something else.

Brigette: Sometimes following your heart means leaving other things behind.

Morgan: It’s how kind you are that makes you great.

Who would you recommend it to?

Pete: Anyone who liked the first Thor film.

Brigette: People who liked the first Thor film and who like to see comic books brought to life on the big screen.

Morgan: People who have seen the first Thor film, or Thor fans.

Gable: People who watched Thor but thought it wasn’t funny enough, people who love Marvel comics, and people who are interested in Vikings and Norse gods.
