The Movie Slut offers her profound apologies to loyal readers. She should have seen and reviewed this crazy good movie sooner. But who knew?
It's based on a Marvel comic. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But she assumed...
Rule #1: Never assume anything.
Thor is a sci-fi flick, a thriller and a rom-com rolled into one. It takes place in two galaxies with characters who span 12 centuries.

So much to enjoy.
The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who knows his way around Shakespeare, and stars Natalie Portman and a fantastic Chris Hemsworth as the star-crossed (pun intended) lovers.
