Everything we’ve seen from Thor: Ragnarok has blown us away. Bright, fun, Marvel movies have become the norm but, somehow, this has looked different. The trailers and clips have been trippy, manic, and hilarious. Plus, with each new look, they’ve only gotten weirder. Could the film actually live up to that insanity and our growing expectations? Well, the first reactions from the film have begun rolling in and it sounds like it does.
The below are tweets from members of the press, myself included, who saw the film this weekend. Expect more reactions to roll in all week.
Thor: Ragnarok is just plain fun. It's hilarious from start to finish with quirky performances & exciting action. Tessa Thompson is the MVP. pic.twitter.com/7GyYG4IZZ5

#ThorRagnarok is SO much fun I almost can't take it. The best: Thor movie, Cate Blanchett scene stealing, Jeff Goldblum Goldblum-ing.

Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film. Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score.

THOR RAGNAROK is hilarious & weird & offbeat & retro & sublime. Love how Marvel let Taika Waititi make a movie that's Waititi-ish as hell.

Jeff Goldblum was my favorite part of THOR: RAGNAROK. Nonsensical and kooky as ever.

#ThorRagnarok is laugh out loud funny from start to finish. Stumbles a bit in the first act, but it triumphs when it gets weird with it.

I have much, much more to say about Thor: Ragnarok but those thoughts will have to wait until 19th October, when the full review embargo breaks.
