The Almighty Thor (2011)

While many of you probably went to see Thor in theater's this weekend,  I stayed home and watched him on Syfy.  Well watch may be too strong of a word.  It was on and I would stare in disbelief at the screen from time to time. 

Anyone unfamiliar with Syfy might assume that this could have been a good movie.  Everyone else knew it was going to be bad.  The film was done by the Assylum.  They tend to find out what is coming out and release a straight to video version to confuse people who don't know any better.  I won a free copy of Transmorphers and it was better than I expected, but I got the impression that they wanted to do some Roger Corman type sex scenes and couldn't for some reason. 

This movie was pretty much shot in an ally and a room with maybe a couple of other locations.  The special effects stopped being special in the early 80's.  What I saw was bad.

Yeah, yeah. I suffer so you don't have to.

You know some idiot somewhere was saying to himself, "I can't believe those idiots are paying to see Thor in theaters when it is on syfy for free."

The film does seem bad, but as you remember some time ago I had a chance to talk with the lead actor, gorgeous Cody Deal and he seems like quite a nice and very polite young man. And he is also very dedicated.

He is very smart, apparently, and his first audition was for Marvel's Thor, ironicaly enough. I don't know if he can act as assylum films don't really showcase actor talent. I am pretty sure they do most scenes in one take and the script doesn't have a lot of effort put in to it.

Who is that Owen Wilson as Thor lol. Just wow i guess we will be seeing a Captain America knock-off film soon then.

as you remember I talked with Cody Deal who plays Thor last winter, and he seems like a very nice, charming and dedicated young man, although the film sounds rather terrible.

jboypacman-they could name it American Captain.

Dez-hate that all of my comments went away for what is seeming like for good.
