Film Review: Thor: The Dark World

Now sporting the Kenneth Branagh’s Hamlet crown of directing from the original Thor (2011), we have Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones/The Sopranos) guiding the demigods, cohorts and mortals through the ever increasing galaxy of the Marvelverse in Thor: The Dark World (2013).
