Review: Thor: The Dark World

             Thor: The Dark World is a continuation and expansion on the Norse-god superhero and the Marvel comics cinematic universe. It has some very funny moments in the first act but none of which take away from the excitement and final moments of the final act. The opening moments as well as the first 30 minutes establish the good guys as well as the bad guys. We are given a brief glimpse into the life of the main antagonist known as Malekith. ; an otherworldly Elf bent on destroying worlds with a powerful weapon.
                The film gives the viewer more of an in depth look into Asguard while also showing life on earth with Jane Foster played by the charismatic Natalie Portman . Many of the shots of Asguard make you almost think that you are watching Star Wars, Star Trek or one of the many Man Of Steel franchise films. The visual aspect of the film is near breathtaking.

                The main plot of the film is actually really good. I admit that the prologue seemed a bit familiar but the action as well as the character development of  Lady Sif , played by Jaime Alexander is great as well as that of Thors' mother played by Rene Russo . Anthony Hopkins shined once again as Odin. In parts of this film, one could actually believe that they are in a comic book come to life. Some notable characters that did not get enough screen time include Himdall played by Idris Elba and Volstagg played by Ray Stevenson . It will be interesting to see where their character development leads in Thor 3.

                All in all Thor: The Dark World delivers in terms of action, dialogue and visual mastery.  There was a love story between Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Lady Sif that I would have liked to have seen explored- albeit not in the source material , it still would have been fun. Thor :The Dark World shapes up to be a funny, engaging and entertaining sequel. Let’s just say that there will be a ton of surprises for the god of Thunder in the next Marvel installment !

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
