This summer’s blockbuster hit Thor comes to Blu-Ray and DVD Sept 13/11 (also available on 3D combo pack).
The Blu-Ray comes with 80 minutes worth of extras, but more importantly it comes with 20 minutes of deleted scenes that include more scenes of Odin and Frigga (Anthony Hopkins and Rene Russo).
The anticipation for the release of Thor is pretty high (also the release of Captain America – coming Oct 25/11) especially with the release of The Avengers in 2012.
Thor was the surprise hit for me this summer. I originally thought Green Lantern would have been a better performer at the box office than Thor, but with a worldwide box office take of $448,512,824 (source Box Office Mojo) it is clearly one of this summers biggest movies. Which should see a return of all its stars for the sequel.
This movie is a perfect date movie. I know what you’re thinking… it’s a Superhero movie. Well your wrong. This is the perfect date movie. Thor and Jane Foster have more of a romantic relationship in this movie than any “upside-down-Spider-kiss” could ever have. Just the scene where Thor and Jane sit and he talks about the 9 realms around the fire is enough to get any lady to watch this one for date night. And guys if you have a hard time selling your “lady friend” on that one, just show her the clip of Chris Hemsworth walking around with his shirt off. She’ll be ready to watch this one anytime, and you shall be in all of your “Asgardian Glory” with a perfect date movie (just make sure to prepare a feast that would rival the halls of Valhalla).
I took my wife to see it on her birthday and she really like it (especially beefcake Hemsworth). Where romance is concerned, I particularly liked:
Thor approaches Heimdall, who’s standing by the edge of the broken bridge…
Thor: So Earth is lost to us?
Heimdall: No. There is always hope.
Thor: Can you see her?
Thor: How is she?
Heimdall: She searches for you.
That’s poetry, man!
A friend of mine said the only Superhero movie his wife will watch is Spider-Man (mainly because of that stupid kiss). I told him “Take her to Thor, it is romantic, she’ll love it”. She wasn’t interested in seeing it.
Come on!!! Kenneth Brannaugh directed it. The guy has done Shakespeare. I am pretty sure he can set up a scene that is romantic.
I think when it hits DVD tomorrow, there are going to lots of people who love this movie (if they didn’t see it in theatre). It’s like Gladiator. The first week it came out was slow, but after a couple weeks it was number 1 at the box office, and the audience was a 50/50 split between men and women.
I think the ladies will really enjoy Thor. I know my wife does. She can’t wait til we get the Blu-Ray tomorrow. She’s more excited for that one than X-Men First Class.
It was my girlfriend’s favorite summer flick and to be honest out of the two marvel flicks this summer I flip flop between this and Cap And now with The Consultant we have a Marvel movie time line.
Thor has become my favorite Marvel character over the past few years. As a younger reader I always gravitated towards Spider-man and X-men(my brother was the Thor fan), I thought the story boring. As my taste in storytelling matured I kept coming back to Thor when superheros were concerned. I loved the grandiose characters and story lines of the silver age and recent J.M.S keeps that spirit going!
I feel this movie is one of Marvels best…hold on..I am a huge fan of Spider-man 2, and X-men 1 & 2,(can’t forget X-Men First Class!) but this movie hits all the right notes! Captain America with all it’s flaws is very enjoyable, but Thor managed to keep the original feel of the book and make it approachable enough for people not familiar with the source material.
A few bad one liners aside, it didn’t feel like it was hokey or “dumbed down”, balancing humor with fantastical fight scenes every minute of film is used wisely.
Make sure to check this one out, some good extras and looks great on Blu-Ray (skip the 3-D, it wasn’t shot in 3-D and isn’t worth the extra $6-$10). Finally a good flick on a character I was praying they wouldn’t screw up, and I liked it better the second time!
