World War G #180: At The Movies--Thor: The Dark World

Grab your copy of Thor: The Dark World and watch along with us. This one is not our favorite. How did Odin lose his eye? We are in podcasting shape. Troy will never believe in Ghosts. What was the Poltergeist curse exactly? This movie gets dangerously close to the Star Wars Prequels in tone. IMDB user reviews. Thore: A Dull world. No wonder Natalie Portman doesn't want to be in these movies anymore. Natalie Portman doesn't care about money now that she's vegan. Marvel plot inconsistencies.

This episode is available right here on the website. You can also find it on all the usual places including iTunes, Stitcher, and Podcast Addict on the Android store. It is also available at WorldWarG.Podbean.com.
