Thor The Dark WorldÂ lights up the box office taking in over 86 million in the U.S alone – over 300 million globally in its first two weeks.

It’s news about Bigfoot, all-female directed horror and Annabelle, the devil doll from Hell.
00:02:37 —Â Review of The the Dark World (2013)
The grue-crew dramatically leap right into the review of the latest Marvel Studios megaplex monster,Â Thor the Dark World. While everyone blasts the villain of the film, the dark elf Malekith, as a weak excuse for a cinematic bad guy with a confusing, convoluted and unmotivated drive to return the universe to the darkness, they love the relationship between Thor and Loki. Director Alan Taylor strikes superhero gold with the Thunder God’s latest adventure in Asgard.
