We saw Thor last night, and it made me think about the chapter I wrote about boy books for A Family of Readers. I called that "Go Big or Go Home" after Will Hobbs's novel of the same name, and boys and other people who loved that book will love this movie. Explosions, challenges, slapstick, father-son drama, sacrifice, and just a hint of romance (object of which being Natalie Portman, who I like a lot more here than in Black Swan).
However, I will never be able to go to the movies again without looking back to check the projector. And here I thought it was just my aging eyes.
