I didn’t really need to re-watch Thor (2011) before going to see the newly-released Thor: The Dark World, what with fanfiction constantly reminding me of movie canon (basically, lots of heatedly pseudo-incestuous glances bewteen Loki and Thor, right?). Then again, it wasn’t like there was anything else on TV that night, so I wound up roping my mum into watching the first movie with me. My mother, senior citizen retiree, who knew nothing about Thor except what I’d told her (which was, in sum: “I’m warning you, it’s a movie all about space aliens wielding all-powerful mallets.”) (“Sounds good,” she gamely replied). So we watched.
(At least I know which movie she’s getting introduced to next?)
