Let's be honest - when are early reactions ever bad?
Answer: The Dark Tower. Thor Ragnarok was screened for US critics last night and, sure enough, the usual wave of high praise is coming in from Twitter to wash away any doubts you could have possibly had. Pretty much all critics surveyed agreed that it's by far the best Thor movie to date - which isn't hard, in fairness - and some have even gone so far as to call it the funniest Marvel movie so far.
Here's a quick smattering of tweet reactions.

#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.

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

I just saw #ThorRagnarok and Marvel has 100% done it again. Great action, tons of laughs, and some fantastic superhero action.

#ThorRagnarok: a goofy good time. Easily the funniest non-Guardians MCU flick – EVERYONE in it is funny. Great music (Mothersbaugh), fights.

We'll have our own review up pretty soon, but in the meantime, let's watch that excellent trailer again.
