“Thor: The Dark World” Review: AKA Loki

"Thor: The Dark World" Review: AKA Loki

Where would Thor be without Loki?

Thor: The Dark World, is an improper title for this film. The film should be called Loki. A much cleaner name in my opinion and a name true to the real star of this film, Tom Hiddleston (Midnight in Paris). Thor (Chris Hemsworth, Rush) and his love for Jane Foster (Natalie Portman, Black Swan) is sweet and all, but Loki’s clever deception makes him the key player in the wake of his attach on New York City.

Its been two years since Jane has seen Thor. Coincidentally her world and Asgard were close than ever due to the convergence of all the different cosmos of existence. To save the realms from an ancient race of dark elves, Thor and Jane must disobey Oden (Anthony Hopkins) and team up with Loki in hopes of saving the lives of everyone in the universe. To make things even more personal, Jane has been possessed by some sort of dark energy that may lead to her death.

A lot of things feel forced in this Avengers outing. After so many movies, the filmmakers didn’t even seem to know where to begin. Consequently, it may be in your best interest to show up late and hopefully miss the opening ten to fifteen minutes. Even when it gets started, some characters still don’t have a place (Kat Dennings and her intern are just dead weight). Without Loki its a below average superhero movie, but we haven’t seen the  last of him yet.

A few years ago I founded the companies Mile High Movie Reviews, LLC and Mile High Pictures, LLC and have decided that it is time to let it go and move to bigger and better horizons. I have always been about taking the next step, and that is why you are here. I am now the founder, CEO, Producer and Editor-in-Chief of Vlizz Entertainment and hope to lead a very talented staff to success. I’ve been passionate about film ever since I saw Peter Jackson’s “The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001) and have found a love for the creativity and the business behind the industry. I am a double major in Accounting and Film Studies and Production at the University of Denver (DU) and am applying for my MBA. I will also be working towards getting my CPA license in the next few years. I have been involved in the online entertainment journalism industry since August 2010 and am excited for how social media is paving its future. My goal is to redefine the film and entertainment industry by combining my cinematic creative passion with an extensive knowledge of business, finance and most importantly accounting.

    It was a great film. Tom does wonderful justice to the role. I wonder if his success though, beyond the other Marvel villain adaptations, stems from the fact that his character is one the only villain, in Feige’s Marvel film world, that is faithfully adapted? I think this is certainly something to think about.

    My Best and Happy Fandom.
