Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on May 10, 2011

Thor is pretty good, but nothing special. I do think it would have sucked without an impressive cast, particularly for the Asgardians. Renee Russo and, on occasion, Jaimie Alexander (though she was better than I’d expected) were unable to keep their dialog from sounding ridiculous. It wasn’t full-on King James Bible-style speech like Thor in the comics, but it wasn’t at all natural either. Anthony Hopkins can make that stuff sound great, but lesser actors (or maybe even just actors that lack gravitas, I don’t know) can’t. But those moments of awkwardness were few and far between, and about the only thing I can complain about.
