An ancient evil race threatens all the nine realms and Thor must find a way to stop the darkness and save Jane.
It was exactly what I expected – a lot of fun! Still not Avengers level, but a worthy sequel. Some twists and turns and an ending that not only sets up the next Thor movie, but it really sets up a big question. (No spoilers, so I can’t reveal it!)
The exchanges between Thor and Loki are hilarious. So are any scenes with Jane’s friend, Darcy.
Saw it in 3D and the special effects were quite impressive.
Little extras: There is an Avengers member cameo and after credit bonuses. Not just one, but two! Stay until the end of the first credits and then stay to the VERY end of all the credits.
If you liked the first Thor, you will enjoy this one. Highly recommended.
Now, someone get me Chris Helmsworth’s personal trainer…
Nick Wilford’s son Andrew passed away. Nick had put together the anthology, Overcoming Adversity, to benefit Andrew and send him to a college that could meet his need.
IWSG members and writers have pulled together for donation for Nick and his family. Please contact Kyra Lennon for how you can give.
Nick, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Questions to Ponder
This week I am on vacation and will be hit or miss on the comments. (I will visit everyone who comments here though!) After a huge launch for CassaStorm, and many hours spent doing promotions, my wife deserves my undivided attention for a while.
However, I’d like to toss some questions at you and provide food for thought while I am gone…
Do you think there are too many Memes? Do they start to blur together?
Do ‘buy my book’ tweets really work?
Why do some bloggers never return comments?
Can they crank out a decent Star Wars movie in just two years?
How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?
Did anyone else see Thor this weekend? Excited about the Realms Faire this week? Get the trivia right? And what are your answers to those questions…?
Be back Monday with a HUGE announcement! Off to work on my tan. No, not really…
