Thor doesn’t need CPR
I expected Kenneth Branagh’s Thor to be cheesy due to its Norse-inspired themes. I was kinda hesitant to watch it just cos a lot who were saying it’s awesome were those who had feasted on Chris Hemsworth’s bod. As always, I was wrong: Thor dished off the cheese and was riveting. Sure, Hemsworth’s humanity was unwillingly in my face but it didn’t fail to let the others shine, like Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston, for example.
The thing about Thor was that it wasn’t an action film AT ALL (duh). It was a fantasy with lots of popular culture references by the “mortals.” Remember when Thor’s friends were referred to as Xena, Jackie Chan, etc? I laughed my ass off.
And of course, there’s Kat Dennings (and to my friend Cake‘s shock, I didn’t know her in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist with Michael Cera). Her character Darcy completed the movie with her quips: “I’m a political science major,” “Does Thor need CPR, cos I totally know CPR?” “I’m gonna put this on Facebook.”
When people want me to describe Thor, I just say,”It’s entertaining! Shutthe fuck up and watch it!” As for you, what are you still doing? Shut the window down and go watch it!
At least go watch it for Natalie’s perfect nose!
