Watched Thor (2011) from letterboxd.com
Against his father Odin's will, The Mighty Thor - a powerful but arrogant warrior god - recklessly reignites an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Watched this with my children (7/10), their first MCU film, and saw it with new eyes.

I’ve always felt it was a bit hammy and tongue-in-cheek, and maybe it is, but that just made it better for the kids. The generally light tone and total lack of subtext worked really well for them.

Decent live action films aimed at kids are now few and far between but they both enjoyed it and I enjoyed watching it with them.

★★★★
