Thor: The Dark World DVD in Stores February 25th

More than two years have passed since Thor fell to Earth and captured the heart of Jane Foster, and a great deal has happened in the Marvel universe in that time (see Iron Man 3 and The Avengers). In October 2013, the epic story finally continued with Thor: The Dark World, which is now set for release on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 25, 2014.

The first movie was quite enjoyable, especially with all the visual effects. The sequel was somewhat better in terms of plot structure and more action-packed sequences. Most of the original cast returned, including (of course) Chris Hemsworth as Thor as well as Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan SkarsgÄrd, and Rene Russo. This time much of the action occurs on Asgard rather than on Earth, as Jane (Portman) is taken over by a mysterious red energy known as the Aether that is sought after by a Dark Elf who wants to use it to bring on eternal night. IMDB gave it a 7.5 out of 10, which isn't bad, and Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 66%.

Before, or after, watching Thor: The Dark World, I would recommend also watching the "Honest Trailer" on Cinema Blend, which I think summarizes the film pretty well. "Honest Trailers" are a series of clips produced by the YouTube channel Screen Junkies as trailer parodies for various Hollywood releases. Along with the traditional summary of the movie, these videos clips include video commentaries that are witty and fun to watch because of their bluntness about the characters, plot, and movie scenes. This way you can know what to look for when watching or just laugh out loud about the movie.

Don't take my word for it, though! If you want an "honest" review of the movie, check out Screen Junkies.
