Kenneth Branagh's Thor

With Kenneth Branagh at the helm and adapted for the screen by J. Michael Straczynski, small wonder Thor is far and away the best Marvel film adaptation to date: Epic in scale, visually spectacular and with sound design worthy of Asgard.

One caveat: Don't pay extra for 3D. The interface isn't quite there yet, muting every colour and adding a frame rate problem to every action shot. The production did not make much use of the capability in any event.

Thanks to: Dr. Pepper for hosting a preview screening.
