Honestly, if I was forced to judge Summer 2012 at first glance, I would say it was pretty weak. Compared to 2011 and 2010, there's just not as many movies to look forward to. While it seems easy to write off this Summer as a dud, I have three reasons why it might actually be awesome; The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, and Prometheus. Honestly, that's all Summer 2012 needs in order to be one for the history books. Even then, there's still more than enough films to warrant your attention this summer. To help you sort through them all, we've once again compiled all the most interesting films of the season into four easy to read, informative guides. For the next four days, we'll take you on a journey through the best cinema has to offer in Summer 2012. Welcome to our Summer 2012 Movie Guide! Here's Part One, focusing entirely on the month of May. Enjoy!
From the beginning, Thor was expected to have the most difficult production of all the Marvel movies. Well his other Avenger cronnies stuck to science fiction formula, Thor was a different breed all together. Believe it or not, Norse superheros aren't that scientific, nor believable, and Thor was going to have to find away to bridge the gap between itself and The Avengers. On top of all of that, it had to deliver a mainstream film that audiences would like without taking away the fantasy elements geeks would swoon over. Now, with the film's release already upon us, can we validly say the film succeeded in juggling all of these elements?
To put it bluntly, a resounding "YES."
