Disney and Marvel recently held its first media screening for Thor: Ragnarok this weekend. Although members of the press weren’t allowed to publish their official reviews just yet, they were, however, permitted to post their initial thoughts of the movie on social media.
Now, as the first wave of reactions start pouring in, one cant help but ask: does the film live up to the hype? Well, if these reactions are any indication, it sounds like it does.

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

Director Taika Waititi’s eccentric approach to the film has definitely earned the nods from these critics, with some praising it as “the best Thor movie.” Words like “fun,” “hilarious,” and “kick-ass” were thrown in the mix of their reactions as well. On top of that, newcomers Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, and Cate Blanchett were also singled out for their scene-stealing performances. All in all, it looks like Ragnarok will finally bring the spotlight back to this underloved Marvel franchise. We cant wait to see the rest of the film when it opens a few weeks from now.
Check out the rest of the Twitter reactions for Thor: Ragnarok below.

#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 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.
