Film serves as good release of stress from rigors of college life
It has been a busy semester for everyone at Lubbock Christian University. From tests to events it seems like there is always something going on and stressing students out. I took the advice of a friend of mine and went to see the "Thor: The Dark World" to blow off some of the steam that has made its home in my head.
Now, something that was not communicated to me is what exactly "Thor" was about. I had not seen the first movie, but had watched "The Avengers" movie. That being said, as I walked up to the premiere of "Thor: The Dark World" at midnight earlier this week, I was not prepared for the costumes and the number of people that were so excited to see the movie, which comes with any premiere.
The movie itself, though, was epic. Between the fight scenes to the twists and turns of brothers, Loki and Thor, fighting for the power of their world, Asgard, director Alan Taylor did an excellent job of using the comic concept to make the movie ... or so the rest of the people in my party explained to me.
Chris Hemsworth returned to the big screen as Thor, and Natalie Portman also assumed her role as leading lady and scientist, Jane Foster. Her role was much more important as the scientist in this movie because of the nature of the enemy that Thor was up against, and she was a viable component in defeating Malekith the Accursed.
You'll have to go see the movie for yourself to enjoy all of the suspense, which I highly recommend, even if you are an inexperienced Thor expert like myself.
