For pure Popcorn Eating Saturday Matinee Popcorn eating fun, go see **Thor the Dark World.** The formula for fan favorite moments are there; 3 rip roaring cameos, 2 post credit sequences that tease the next movie and provides a loving chuckle for those who wait. This film also features some fantastic visual sequences featuring cliff hanging moments worthy of comic books and movie serials starring Buster Crabbe & Bela Lugosi.
While it would help to review **Thor** and **Marvel's The Avengers,** **Thor the Dark World** is a stand alone movie. Thor's human love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) stumbles ether from the dark ages with the potential to destroy the entire universe. Thor (Chris Hemworth) attempts to rescue, but first must enter in an alliance with his villainous brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). For all of the fantastic set pieces, it is the character dynamic that makes **Thor the Dark World** this weekend's predictable box office blockbuster.
