Thor and Equilibruim


This week on the silver screen I saw Thor and received Equilibrium.

Thor

Kenneth Branagh directs this Marvel Comics-inspired action flick about the god of thunder Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful warrior whose father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) — the king of Asgard — forces him to live among humans on Earth and learn humility. Once there, he finds a friend (Natalie Portman), along with unexpected enemies sent from his world. Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård and Rene Russo co-star.

This was another great movie from Marvel. I got to see this movie in 3D and Asgard was way cool in 3D. A lot of action, but I was surprised by how little of the movie took place on Earth, like 20 minutes. Overall this was a very enjoyable movie and well worth the price of admission.

Rating: 10 out of 10 stars.

Equilibrium

In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions: Books, art and music are strictly forbidden, and feeling is a crime punishable by death — a rule that’s enforced by feeding the denizens a mood-limiting drug. John Preston (Christian Bale) is a top government official responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. But when he misses a dose of his own medication, he experiences a pang of conscience.

This is one of my favorite Christian Bale movies of all time. I don’t remember seeing TV trailers or commercials of this movie when it came out, but I was surfing the telly one day and came a crossed this movie.

Rating: 10 out of 10 stars.
