The New Thor Movie Was A Pleasant Surprise And Why It Should Be Pronounced "Tor"
Even though the story of Thor is based in Nordic myth, the new movie version added time travel and lots of aliens. It was enjoyable for adults and kids alike and they left the door open for what else? A sequel!

: The answers you seek shall be yours, once I claim what is mine.
For those of you who don't know, in the language the name Thor comes from, the "H" is silent so it should really be pronounced as "Tor". My step son is part Danish and his middle name was spelled Tor for that reason, because his mom said Americans would never pronounce it right otherwise. Now you know who was bugging me every 5 minutes to see the movie :)
The whole cast was top notch with actors I love, like: Natalie Portman
as geeky scientist chasing weird concentrations of electrical impulses along with Stellan Skarsgård
, Rene Russo
and Anthony Hopkins
as Thor's parents.Chris Hemsworth
plays Thor, which I think was a very good choice for the part because he fits the whole Norse God image perfectly. In my opinion, he made the movie and has shown himself to be quite the talented actor.
The special effects were great too, with lots of alien fight scenes taking place on different worlds. We were really glad we saw it in the movies and now will watch it again when it comes to Netflix.
This movie has an exciting storyline along with great special effects and wonderful actors. I hope the sequel will live up to this high standard.
