Watching Adventures In Babysitting with my mum and younger sister for the first time I probably ten years. I had forgotten how fun a movie it was.
But even more so I had forgotten that Sarah, the sister in the movie, is a comic book reader and loves obsessed with Thor. Her character is set up by her drawing pictures of him and she’s wearing a Thor helmet and hammer throughout the film.
Think of it: a thirty year old film where one of the main characters is a young comic book geek girl who knows all about Thor. Why are there not more characters like this now, all these year later? And why do I have the (unfortunate) suspicion that it the film were made today she wouldn’t be in it?
