Thor: A Dark World
A review written by Emily Lucia
*Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead*
Marvel’s second post-Avengers film is just what a Marvel film should be. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry (sometimes in the same scene) and it leaves clues to future Marvel productions (Avengers 2 and 3 anyone?). Despite the change of director from the first film, Thor: The Dark World is an exciting ride that keeps audience members on their feet until the very end.
The film begins in the same manner as the first with Odin (Anthony Hopkins), Thor’s father and King of Asgard, lending his voice to tell an ancient tale of an evil race called the Dark Elves led by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). In the tale, Malekith seeks a dark substance known as the Aether. Asgardians led by Odin’s father and predecessor, Bor sweep in and save the day. Malekith was going to use the Aether to absorb its power and, we can assume, take over the nine realms. Bor and the Asgardians defeat Malekith and the Dark Elves and confiscate the Aether, locking it away somewhere no one will find it.
What’s Hot on the CW Network?
Written by: Kimberly Bennett
For those of you who do not know me, I am a huge TV fan. I watch a lot of different shows and this year happens to be the CW’s biggest year yet! Before last year, I didn’t really watch a lot of shows on the CW but since last year’s freshman series, Beauty & the Beast, starring Jay Ryan, Kristin Kreuk and Austin Basis, I immediately started watching more of the CW shows. If you remember WB-11’s Smallville, then you’re ahead of everyone else. Smallville was one of the few series that lasted 10 seasons and was formally owned by the Warner Bros. Company. However, in 2006, CBS and Warner Bros formed a partnership and became the CBS and Warner Bros. Company (or, for short, CW-TV).
