movie adaptions

thor, based upon the marvel-comic-series. (i think there will be a sequel)

thor is being exiled by his father odin, after he reaks the truce between asgard and the ice-giants. odin takes his hammer mjölnir and sends thor to earth. meanwhile thor's brother loki (the god of chaos, yay!) takes over the kingdom, when their father falls into a coma. thor meets jane, a scientist, who thinks thor flying to earth to be some kind of storm, a bridge into a wormhole...

a fantastic sci-fi-mythology-mix with a superhot hammer-wielding hero... and funny =)

  1. I loved Water for Elephants when I read the book. The movie had moments: the setting was perfect and matched the one I'd imagined from reading the book, the ring master was exceptional, but the lover were so-so. No chemistry in film, but lots in the book.

    sometimes you can enjoy the movie more if you haven't read the book...

    christopher waltz is such a great actor! i really enjoyed him in "inglorious basterds" and also here he was fantastic, perfect for this role...
