2012 Oscars Challenge: [24] My Week With Marilyn & 2 Acting Noms

[22 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[18 DAYS TO OSCARS] Playing a well-known historical figure is tough. Especially one as well-known as Marilyn Monroe. The difficulty comes in being compared to that figure and never quite adding up to what people expect from that role. Marilyn was never nominated for an Academy Award, so Michelle Williams being nominated playing Monroe is quite the accomplishment and … Read More 2012 Oscars Challenge: [24] My Week With Marilyn & 2 Acting Noms

Movie Review: Thor (2011)

We were there last summer (2010) when the conclusion of “Iron Man 2” revealed the protagonist for this summer’s blockbuster, “Thor”. The nerdiest members of the audience whooped and hollered at the hammer of Thor, as it solidified the continued build up to “The Avengers” film compiling years of story and characters into one single, “mega-film”. I am a fan of the comic book adaptations of late, but Thor never really jumped off the page for me. Even the first trailers for “Thor” did not seem to translate well into an on-earth piece or as grounded as say “Iron Man” or “The Incredible Hulk”. I felt that “Clash of the Titans” would take its slimy tentacles and reign again as God of the bad B-title remakes. I am sitting here today, singing a different tune. “Thor” proved me wrong.
