Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins
Best moment: The climactic fight in Asgard between Thor and his malevolent brother Loki, culminating in the destruction of the luminescent Bifrost Bridge.
Why it's an all-time great: As a Shakespearean actor himself, Branagh concerns himself more with performance and character than most comic-movie directors; the conflicted fraternal relationship between Thor and Loki is compelling, and the stars are tremendous.
