You know, for a crazy homeless person... he's pretty cut

Thor (2011)
Chosen by me as I like to go to the cinema a lot

Another solid fun movie from Marvel studios. They continue their trend of hiring interesting cast and crew.
Hemsworth is great as the happy warrior god presenting a presence and charisma that you believe would be followed by all, and the rest of the actors are generally good at filling in their character's often brief roles.
In fact Thor's biggest problem is the size of it's cast compared to how much time they get. We have at least 2 too many Asgardians (I like having Sif but did we need all the Warrior's 3 aswell if they are barely going to register?) and Kat Dennings, as wonderful as she is, doesn't really add much to the proceedings beyond some snark that Portman's character probably could have delivered.
The 3D was underwhelming and has the unfortunate effect of darkening everything and the colours in Thor should really 'pop' more than this allowed.
It has a much more interesting post credits scene than Iron Man 2 that doesn't just set up an item Marvel Comic book fans will probably recognise but a nice bit of threat and a James Bond style 'Thor will return in The Avengers' hook.
