Thor: The Dark World

So the Norse gods are still right in the middle of fighting everybody all the time, Thor is still "all muscly", as Darcy (Kat Dennings) rightly points out, and Asgard still looks like a giant pipe organ, so all's right with the world(s), basically. And pretty much the whole gang is back from the first Thor, and / or The Avengers, which is always nice to see in a sequel.

The Thing

Once upon a time, a crazy Norwegian man in Antarctica tried to shoot a dog, and before anyone knew quite what was happening, a horror movie called The Thing broke out. Now yet another horror movie called The Thing has popped up out of nowhere. Well, yes, out of Antarctica again, but that's basically the middle of nowhere. This flick is, as you may have heard, more a prequel than a remake of the original, though I'm told some scenes are fairly similar.

Killer Elite

I think I like this movie, except now I can't think of anything to say about it, really, which is usually a bad sign. It's like stand-up comedy, maybe -- as long as you're getting some reaction from the audience, that isn't out and out booing, there's still hope. Indifference is the worst possible sign, and that seems to work for movies, too.
