Review: Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World
"How is space?"
"Space is fine."

Isn't it nice that superhero movies don't feel the need to take themselves seriously any more? Even Thor, the superhero with the most potential to be a massive space ponce, is – for want of a better word – smashing it. The Dark Knight trilogy was brooding and brilliant, no one is disputing that, but now that Batman has been put to bed, it feels like the real fun can begin. Marvel are on a hot-streak (if you ignore Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk and shut up) and their Thor sequel sees that string of hits continue; The Dark World arrives in the same vein as Avengers Assemble and Iron Man 3 i.e. laden with lots of fun, lots of laughs and so much charisma that even the minor characters matter. Who'd have thought a throwaway interaction between Thor and Kat Dennings' comic relief Darcy would end up being the funniest exchange of the movie?

They're both utterly ridiculous. Now sit back, shut up and enjoy.

Thor! Thor! THOR!
In which Kenneth Branagh, cunning linguist and Shakespeare mouthpiece, resorts to showcasing topless hunks and telling Facebook jokes. This thucks.

Review: Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist

Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist
The danger with 'gig movies' - films in which fresh-faced dudes convene to rock out to their favourite band - is that they do tend to have a suspicious odour of 'hipster douche' about them. Take Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist, for example. It has a terribly wanky title, a young cast who wouldn't know real rock and roll if th...
