    Thor: The Dark World

    ★★

    Going through the motions cinema, and any and all things pertaining to said description.

    At the very least, a Marvel viewing for the most part is at least watchable. With that said, this feels like Marvel going through the motions and churning out a cinematic viewing with dollars signs in mind.

The initial questioning of Arthur Leigh Allen ends up being in many ways the closest we ever get to seeing the Zodiac killer (or so we want to think) up close and in person. This scene marks the send-off into the labyrinth of twists and turns that…
