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— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) October 9, 2017
THOR RAGNAROK is hilarious & weird & offbeat & retro & sublime. Love how Marvel let Taika Waititi make a movie that's Waititi-ish as hell.— Kevin Polowy (@djkevlar) October 9, 2017
Jeff Goldblum is glorious in Thor Ragnarok, but didn't expect anything less. I mean look at this man. pic.twitter.com/uuRjLHrAxi— Kevin Polowy (@djkevlar) October 9, 2017
Jeff Goldblum gets to be Jeff Goldblum in Thor Ragnarok in a way that will very much please Goldblum fans the world over— Ryan Pearson (@ryanwrd) October 9, 2017
Btw, #ThorRagnarok is solid MCU fun. Great music, Blanchett is awesome, looks/feels like an 80's video game. Slight, but wholly entertaining— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017
Thompson is great too, a subversion of the "bad-ass" female action figure. At its best, #ThorRagnarok has an occasional GHOST PROTOCOL vibe.— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017
#ThorRagnarok is SO much fun I almost can't take it. The best: Thor movie, Cate Blanchett scene stealing, Jeff Goldblum Goldblum-ing.— Kara Warner (@karawarner) October 9, 2017
Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film. Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 9, 2017
Hulk is once again the scene-stealer, and a lot of it is that he can finally talk. Great to see him back on the big screen. #ThorRagnarok— Evil Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) October 9, 2017
#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.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
All the new #ThorRagnarok characters are knockouts, but Tessa Thompson walks away with this movie. All hail Valkyrie.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017
#ThorRagnarok: a goofy good time. Easily the funniest non-Guardians MCU flick – EVERYONE in it is funny. Great music (Mothersbaugh), fights.— David Daniel (@CNNLADavid) October 9, 2017
As for rest of the movie it may be divisive. I thought a lot was hilarious (if not too long) but felt like I was only 1 laughing at times— Gregory Ellwood (@TheGregoryE) October 9, 2017
A gay man's guide to THOR RAGNAROK: Cate Blanchett as the villainess may be the first actress to deliver her performance entirely in GIF.— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 9, 2017
Take the fun Cate is having in THOR RAGNAROK, double it, and you get the fun Tessa Thompson is having. Swaggiest superheroine ever?— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 9, 2017
