This is a new weekly feature every Sunday that highlights all the movies I’ve seen while I’m on “Holiday”.
Emma Stone plays high school student, Olive, who inadvertently ends up with the reputation of being rather loose, shall we say. Or to use the vernacular from my own high school days, a right slag. Very grown up performances and I adore the relationship the parents have with the heroine. Will definitely buy thisDVDand stick it beside ‘Mean Girls’ on my shelf.
Thor, in an aeroplane somewhere over the Pacific
Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is tossed out of Asgard by the All Father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and ends up a pesky mortal here on Earth, where he gets hit repeatedly by Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Very believable chemistry between Thor and Foster. The final fight scene goes on a bit too long for my MTV attention span, but remembering Hemsworth with his shirt off at that time compensates mightly. Watching the credits, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was directed by Kenneth Branagh, which obviously wasn’t something I knew before viewing.
