Review: Thor

The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.

Marvel did not disappoint with Thor, they really went all out to make sure this movie doesn’t disappoint. Chris Hemsworth was the perfect Thor, attitude and look, and he did look like a God of Thunder in that suit. Anthony Hopkins played the perfect Odin, the All Mighty Father of Asgard. You get a lot of story in a short movie, you get a touch of Asgard, The Destroyer from Asgard, and a lot of the comics. Honestly I really enjoyed the movie and there is a lot to love, the battle scenes were perfect for Thor and how he fights in the comics. I will look forward to the next Marvel Movies coming up and how they are going to tie it all up together.

Review: The Rite

Inspired by author Matt Baglio’s nonfiction book of the same name, director Mikael Håfström’s supernatural thriller traces the experiences of a young seminary student who discovers the true power of faith after being drafted into the Vatican’s Exorcism School and confronted by the forces of darkness.

I’m a big fan of Anthony Hopkins, I always watch any movie he is in but not every movie is great but he does have a few off movies. When I went to see The Rite I was expecting to see a full on Horror movie staring Anthony Hopkins, it was a good thriller but not the horror movie I was expecting. The dilemma of faith tied into believing in demons was an interesting story but I was expecting to see some more scary stuff thrown into the mix, but that wasn’t the case. Overall its a pretty good movie but could have been better.
