Phase 2, Episode 2.
Oh boy. The episode we've been dreading...for now. It's Thor: The Dark World starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Rene Russo, Christopher Eccleston and directed by Alan Taylor.
Pat has trouble finding a whole heckuva a lot to like about this movie, while Mike finds a lot of convenience in the plot development in order to move the story forward. It's a bit odd that the focal point of all the nine realms just happens to be in London where all the supporting cast of the movie are also just happening to be working....but we digress.
There is some good stuff in this movie as the ever-growing brotherly relationship between Thor and Loki strengthens and deepens in its complexity. And we get to see Frigga kick some serious butt...if she's not long for the MCU. (Spoilers!)
Enjoy the episode!
