idk if you get bragging rights when people on gossip blogs/forums are responding to grainy set photos with "um is she wearing a wig?" and "wtf is up with Natalie Portman's hair?" nearly a year before the movie is out. Looks about as bad as Britney's weave.

Just got back from Thor and what can I say, I enjoyed a lot, a lot, a lot. And believe me I wasn't expecting to but it was just so much fun. A great ensemble performance by the cast. Boy was it good to see Natalie on screen again. I really enjoyed Jane much more than I did in the first film and a really solid performance from Natalie. I might go for seconds if I get some time in the coming week :D

The film was released in Spain this weekend, and I could finally see it. Here's my review (without Spoilers):


Entertaining ... but very, very irregular; impersonal at times, exciting in others. Devoid of the innocence of the first movie, but much more spectacular.

Image

Ironically, my biggest objetion does not come with the much criticized sense of humor that has the film (which works pretty well, except a couple of times in the final climax), but in many situations and characters that does not draw enough match. For example, the motivations of the villain, or situations that promise epic battles but ultimately not so.

Image

But one thing that really works in the film, and it really is worth viewing, is full central part in Asgard. This one is exciting, dramatic and tragic ...

Image

There is something in the hasty structure of the film does not work. It's like you're watching a movie summary of longer and better feature, which only get glimpse fragments. It is a complete guess on my part, but I think the film has been clearly re-edited. There are many shoots that have been seen in the trailers that do not appear in the film, and the resolution of some sequences, like the fight in Vanaheim, or the final climax are clear proof of that.

Image

As for the actors, they are all very correct (including Natalie), but special mention for Hemsworth and Hiddleston, who rules his character perfectly. That if I have noticed a general interpretative coldness (and is a credit to recognize Branagh for and against those who cried at the time of the impersonality of its realization in the first film). The dialogues are sometimes recited with slow parsimony, and it shows in many instances ...

... but I think I'm being too hard on the movie, because in essence, and that is undeniable, bears much of what it promises: entertainment, great action scenes, and moments for unredeemed Marvelitas like me are appreciated. The staging is elegant and leaves look ambitious production design and very carefully, and I guess will be key in future viewings enjoyment ...

Image


In short, a worthy entertainment, which however lacks a boil in the script and character development to be truly inspiring. Anyway, it's fun and spectacular, and Natalie has more dramatic weight than the first movie. it is wonderful to see her again after two years of hiatus. also she is absolutly beautiful in it :)

http://lightscamerareaction.co.uk/movies/thor-the-dark-world-review/ - My review.
I gave it a B-

Here is what I said about Natalie.

Thor: The Dark World promised a lot of things, and to an extent it delivers them. There’s a lot going on in this film, and it just manages to find the right balance without going overboard. Characters such as Idris Elba’s Heimdall, Kat Dennings’ Darcy and Natalie Portman’s Jane are given more to do this time around. One of my main issues from the first film was the relationship between Thor and Jane. Are we meant to believe that they fell in love after two days? Luckily, the warm chemistry between the actors from the first film works here and we get to see them connect more.


Natalie Portman is given a lot more to do here, thrown right into the action. Portman shines in the first and last act in a role that could have been a fainting damsel in distress, despite looking a little bored in the middle.

Great interview with Natalie

Some interesting nuggets. Have to to say this Thor tour has been great. Glad to have her back :D

I'm a little surprised that Natalie didn't attend the U.S. premiere, does anyone know why?

Wonder if she was ill, cant see why else she would miss it, with it being in LA. wonder if anyone asked at the premiere why Natalie wasn't there. Am working early today so couldn't stay up for the premiere, just as well I was since she didnt go. :(
