It is odd that the ancient Norse bad guys in Thor: The Dark World comes equipped with assault rifles and hand grenades. But since this is a movie about a hunky thunder god with a magical hammer, subsidiary quibbles are probably beside the point, says Kurt Loder. By contrast, he writes, About Time has a smooth, easy charm, and a romantic glow that's hard to deny.
