Thor ★★

It's been awhile since I've seen this one, probably almost a decade. It's about as good as I remember it to be, which means it's kind of terrible. The 'fish out of water' comedy is handled clumsily and the Asgard royal court drama is badly done. As a result, Thor sits very awkwardly between a dramatic LOTR-esque high fantasy epic that has ambitions of prestige and a self-parody. The saving grace that keeps it from being unwatchable is Hemsworth's charismatic performance and Hiddleston's cunning Loki, who is a well-conceived villain here and later on.
