It is my tradition to go watch superhero movies on my birthday or birthday weekend (there’s generally been one opening that weekend for the past, oh, 5 years? More?). This year I saw Thor.

Ahaha, man, did my cynicism get totally erased like 5 minutes into that movie.

I sort of regret not slotting this into the Elle strip queue sooner so that I could make a pitch about why everyone should go see Thor. Ah well. Pretty sure it’s done in theaters now, right? When it’s on rental, go see! It’s awesome!
