    • Thor enjoys all the old extras on the accompanying Blu-ray disc - Commentary, Featurette, Deleted Scenes, and a Marvel One Shot too.

    • Unlike the original Iron Man movie, which hasn't really dated at all, Thor, unfortunately, can't hope to wield the same kind of wonder as it did back in 2011

    • This was a solid introduction, putting in the groundwork for a character who would ultimately be better served by the Avengers movies than his solo efforts

    • Sourced from a 2K DI, I'm bummed to report that this 2160p 2.35:1 transfer is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, the HDR10 adds a lot of extra color pop and gives some impressive depth to the image over...
