Thor_-_The_Dark_World_poster

So the family dragged me to Thor: The Dark World, which I immediately sensed was unwatchable.  Crap action movie cliches, the same stuff from the first film, one-liners, pomp and overacting.  To top it off, the speakers were pushed so loud that audio was blatantly distorted.

So I left, to go check out Anchorman 2 instead.

Listening to the story of Thor, in the car ride home, it seems so bad as to be beyond parody.  Evil elves, the powerful malignant malakabop of some sort.  Loki and Thor, Loki bad, Loki good.  Odin good, bad, ugly, blah, blah.  The best part of the entire experience was in getting to the theater late and being spared the commercials and trailers.

Anchorman 2 is the stupidest, most offensively dumb movie I can recall.  Certainly the stupidest big budget movie I’ve ever seen.  There’s no excuse really: they’ve had a decade since the last one to come up with something worthwhile and funny.  This was neither.  So many scenes were painful from the get go.  Then they keep hammering them home like a bad Saturday Night Live marathon of all the worst skits.  The idiots attempt to make a point about dumbed down non-news sold as news to the dumbed down public, for what it’s worth.

I would have stayed home altogether, but it’s been a month and a half since the last decent movie.  How does this business stay afloat pushing such garbage nonstop?
