Alex Garland's new sci-fi thriller Annihilation has a lot going for it – from a strong cast to stunning visuals – but it ultimately feels lacking in some ways.

As we dig out from under the pile of Blu-Ray and DVD releases that have come into the office this month, we take a look at Criterion editions of Soderbergh's underrated King of the Hill and Truffaut's Jules and Jim, Blu-rays for Thor: The Dark World, Nebraska, Wadjda, and Blue is the Warmest Color, and a DVD of the found footage thriller Banshee Chapter.
While it’s undoubtedly going to make a lot of money at the box office thanks to branding and the franchise juggernaut that fuels it, Thor: The Dark World isn’t a good movie. It might appeal to those who live only for credit stingers, plot twists that can be undone mere moments after they happen, or those who enjoy comic book epics indiscriminately, but this really does represent a turning point for the character and the series it now finds itself entrenched within.
I should preface this review with one caveat: I've never read or watched — or heard of Thor at all, really — before seeing the film. As you can probably guess from the preceding sentence, I don't even know what format of text or media from which its story originates. Colour me uneducated and largely incurious. Instead of attempting to hide this gaping hole in my nerd credentials, I'm sure that highlighting my lack of Thor knowledge will make for a pretty interesting review.
I didn’t know it until I saw it, but I have been waiting for a summer movie like Thor for a long time. It is fun, far more fun than any comic adaptation I have seen in years. Its director brings to it a distantiation that allows for investment in the fun of it all: the outrageous narration, exaggerated and impossible action sequences, and actors who can just let go and enjoy the ride without any pressure while still maintaining their integrity and talent. This, my friends, is what a summer movie should be: exciting, clever, comedic, and a joyride.
I didn’t walk into Your Highness with high expectations, that would have been silly, but I was looking forward to it in a way that defies my general like of good taste. A stoner-fantasy genre hybrid suddenly felt like exactly the nosh I was hungry for. But there isn’t a formula for this sort of subgenre as much as there is a vibe, and I’m sad to say no matter how much you tint your eyes rose coloured before entering the theatre, Your Highness doesn’t do a great job flowing with it.
