Disc Spotlight: Thor

Thor (Limited Edition 3-disc DVD + 3-D Blu-ray)(PG-13)

Movie: 3 out of 4 stars

Discs: 3 out of 4 starsBefore you rush out and buy this new 3-D set, make sure you have: a full HD 3-D TV, 3-D glasses, a 3-D Blu-ray player and a high speed HDMI cable. If you don't have all that lying around, that's OK; there is also a regular Blu-ray and DVD included.

The first popcorn movie of the 2011 summer season disappointed a few, but mostly wowed everyone else and for good reason. Director Kenneth Branagh and his three screenwriters flavored the action/adventure with subtle Shakespearean overtones while still keeping everything fun -- and frequently funny.
