Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray Review!

Did you hear that!? In-case you were wondering about that loud earth shaking noise – Marvel’s Thor:The Dark World landed on Blu-ray, 3D, DVD, and Digital HD!

If you’ve been reading my blog over the past four months, you know I’m excited to own this blu-ray. Having had the opportunity to attend the Red Carpet Hollywood premiere and interview several cast members, was like a dream come true for me! I will always have a special fondness for Marvel’s Thor franchise.

Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Staring: Chris Hemsworth (Marvel’s Thor, Marvel’s The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman) as Thor, Natalie Portman (Marvel’s Thor, Black Swan, Star Wars Episodes I-III) as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston (Marvel’s Thor, Marvel’s The Avengers, War Horse) as Loki and Anthony Hopkins (Thor, Silence of the Lambs, Nixon) as Odin.

Get ready to visit the magical and stunning world of Asgard, where a lot of this movie takes place. Thor: The Dark World is filled with amazing special effects, which translate beautifully onto Blu-ray. There are plenty of exciting action and battle scenes in Thor: The Dark World, yet it’s the banter between brothers, and the well written one liners that really makes the movie for me.

You can read more about Thor: The Dark World including my movie review and several cast interviews in my previous blog posts.

Thor: The Dark World is just as exciting, and fun to watch in our living-room as it was in the theater. Though, I have to admit, viewing it for the first time at the legendary El Capitan in Hollywood, with the actors, and the talented people who created the movie is pretty hard to beat.

Just a reminder to keep watching during and after the credits for not only one surprise but two! Including a lead-in to Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” in theaters August 1st. The clip stars my favorite actor Benicio Del Toro as The Collector.


Don’t miss out on these Blu-ray bonus features!

  • Never Before-Seen Extended and Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • Exclusive Look- Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  • A Brothers’ Journey: Thor & Loki
  • Scoring Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World with Brian Tyler
  • Audio Commentary with Director Alan Taylor, Producer Kevin Feige, Actor Tom Hiddleston and Cinematographer Kramer Morgenthau

Iron Man fans rejoice! Also included on this blu-ray is the Marvel One Shot short film Hail to the King; which is very done. The short film, done in the style of an exploitation/grindhouse film, focuses on Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley), who is currently serving jail time and enjoying his post Mandarin celebrity. Though I should point out that the language in this short is not all family friendly.

Thor: The Dark World is available now on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD!

Get it on Amazon Thor: The Dark World (With Amazon-Exclusive Bonus Features) [HD]

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe.




From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Jingle All the Way 2 & The Marine 4

WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment recently announced the next two films that will begin production as part of their continued collaboration.


This March, cameras will start rolling on JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2, the sequel to the 1996 hit comedy JINGLE ALL THE WAY. Starring Larry the Cable Guy (Tooth Fairy 2, Cars) and featuring WWE Superstar “Santino Marella®” the film is directed by Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2, Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts) and will release this 2014 holiday season.

This is going to be fun! Not only is the first installment one of my (guilty pleasure) comedy favorites, but I’m quite the fan of Larry as well. You can read of our first meeting in this previous blog post.

Also announced is the fourth installment of THE MARINE franchise, the eighth collaboration between WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox including the theatrical releases of THE MARINE and 12 ROUNDS. Shooting this April, THE MARINE 4 will star WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz®” Mizanin, who will be the first WWE Superstar to reprise his role in THE MARINE franchise, and will also feature “Summer Rae™,” the first WWE Diva to be featured in a WWE Studios production.

This is also exciting news for me. I love a movie filled with action and explosives! I can’t wait to see this new installment.

Both of these movies, give me something to look forward to. A movie night with the kids, and without.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution for both movies across all formats including Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD!
