These first reactions for Thor: Ragnarok will have you screaming “Yes!”

It’s almost surprising that despite how many Marvel movies have already been made, they can still release a film each and every time that pleases and delights fans. Their films might be formulaic, but it is a formula which wins, not just with fans but critics too. And based on new reactions that have come out from journalists who have already seen the movie, it looks like Thor: Ragnarok is yet another winner.

Director Taiki Waititi had promised that the third Thor movie would be a lighter and more fun addition to the previous two dramatic versions of the comic book hero, and he appears to have delivered completely on that front. What’s more though, critics are not only praising the fun tone of the film but pretty much all the technical aspects as well. While full reviews are currently still embargoed, US film press took to Twitter to share their reactions after a screening yesterday:


What I find particularly refreshing is how Marvel is really working on one of the weaker aspects of their films lately: the musical score. Many Marvel films had pretty indistinct and unmemorable scores and it was only when Doctor Strange released that we started to see more of a focus on crafting something unique. This is a change which I’m definitely excited about, as good scores really do make an incredible difference to a film.

It also appears that some of the new cast of Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum and the movies villain Cate Blanchett all deliver and perhaps even upstage the films main heroes, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

Not that I ever doubt Marvel would do it again, but I for one am glad that people have so far enjoyed the film. It’s worth noting that these are just first reactions and not full reviews from a range of critics, so there is a lot of details likely missing in these reactions. Still, another fun Marvel movie. Yes!

Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled for release on 10 November 2017.

A man of many talents, but no sense how to use them. I could be discovering the cure for aids or finding ways to achieve world peace, but I’d rather be watching movies and writing here instead.

    I am a little confused. So if the score only improved with Doctor Strange, in what category does GOTG fall? Does music like that not count as the score since its not original?

    • Soundtrack and score are different beats, yeah.

    Can’t wait.
