Cinefantastique Spotlight: Thor

2011-05-09-THORJB5875MP0050_410_v01.jpgMost Mother's Days, loving children show their gratitude with flowers and breakfast in bed. This Mother's Day, the kids had the option of taking Mom to the multiplex, where she could drool over the handsomely chiseled Thor in the newest, big-screen adventure out of the Marvel stable. Is Thor -- directed by Kenneth Branagh, starring Chris Hemsworth as the mighty-thewed (thewed?) God of Thunder, Natalie Portman as his potential love-interest, and Anthony Hopkins as Big Daddy Odin, with a special guest appearance by Gort's younger, more ambitious brother -- the film that will bring a Shakespearean gravitas to comic book drama, or is it just so much table setting for the impending The Avengers movie? Join The Chronic Rift's John Drew and Cinefantastique Online's Dan Persons as they discuss the movie behind the myth.
