Thor Moving Slow

This movie attempted to compress too much character history into one film. This problem plagues movies developed from long-time book and comic book characters. The producers attempt to fully explain character history and relationships. The more characters used, the more complex and complicated is the task. .

Working to develop characters and events on earth and on Thor's home world, the movie jumps back and forth between "Valhalla" and earth. The more interesting story is on earth. The story on Valhalla is boring and slow for one primary reason: the actor who plays "Loki" is just plain bad. I can't even remember anything he said in the movie. Each time the story shifted to Loki and Valhalla, the temp and interest palpably braked.

When Thor returned in The Avengers, there was nothing slow or uninteresting. The Avengers! is face paced and exciting.

Loki's Horns Reveal Something

The ancient "gods" are really the fallen angels. They are demons. The horns on Loki's head are a hint.

Loki was Hard to Watch

The Loki character, played by Tom Hiddleston, was hard to watch. Each time the movie cut to developments between Loki, his father, and the frost giants, a cold shudder went through me. The action on earth involving Thor and the humans held my interest much more strongly.

The acting by Hiddleston simply fell short. Everything seemed slower and more "acted" when Loki occupied the screen. Time slowed down.

However, Hiddleston's performance in The Avengers is outstanding.

The antichrist, a man who receives Satan's powers to kill as many as he can in a short time, will be wounded and lose his right eye. Many Hollywood villains have this one-left-eye trait.

How Did Thor Travel Between Worlds?

This movie is one more in a long line of movies which attempts to normalize the idea of a "wormhole", a tunnel in the space-time continuum, as they said on Star Trek. This is also theoretically described in physics by both Einstein and Rosen. It is called an Einstein-Rosen bridge after the two of them. Both men are credited with simultaneous, yet independent, development of a bridge from one dimension to another.

Why is the idea of a wormhole presented so strongly in television series like Farscape in Australia and Star Trek in the United States? Why is the idea present in almost every movie to hit the silver screen in recent years? Why is the concept pressed in movies targeted at children? Movies like Legend of the Guardians: the Owls of Ga'Hoole, and Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, include the idea of a wormhole. In Legends, the young protaganist owl learns to fly into a "twister". This scene could be removed with no reduction of the plot. The twister is never used again. Superman and Batman team up to rescue Supergirl from "Hell" and travel there via a space-time bridge. They recruit a former fury named Big Barda to open this hole. She uses a "mother box" to open it.

In my humble opinion, the constant introduction of wormholes and space-time jumping is not accidental. Someone wants everyone to understand what they are. These are not science fiction. They are science. The Philadelphia Experiment, popularly misunderstood to be a test of an invisibility device, was actually a test to open a wormhole. The ship, the USS Eldridge, disappeared from the test entirely. It reappeared many days later, at a port in Maine. The lead scientist on the experiment was Einstein. Despite the writings of morons and shills on Wikipedia, this was a very real experiment.

The famous Satanist, Aleister Crowley, also opened one of these portals by performing a satanic ritual. After several attempts, Crowley was able to bring through a tunnel a small demon. Crowley's sketch of the demon matches almost exactly sketches made by alien abductees of the "greys".

Time-space tunnels are very real. You are going to find out soon! Only, no hunky, "cut" Thor is coming to help. It is going to be bad demons, posing as good "aliens" killing other bad demons... and then staying to help earth.

It is all a lie, people! There are no helper aliens as in "I am Number Four" or the Transformers movies. There are Einstein-Rosen bridges. Watch that you be not deceived.

      A lot of people really liked it, apparently. It was the best performer of all the superhero flicks to hit the silver screen in 2011.
