"So much fun I almost can’t take it" – The first reactions to Thor: Ragnarok are in

Thor: Ragnarok (opens in new tab) is just around the corner and, would you look at that, the first press reaction embargo has been lifted. Reviews are to come at a later date but, as we all know from awkward parties, first impressions count.

From Jeff Goldblum to Hulk, the movie is filled with box-office smashes so you’d think it wouldn’t disappoint, right? Thankfully, that looks to be the case. The critics are loving the movie – and are here for Tessa Thompson’s star turn at Valkyrie. And Jeff Goldblum, of course.

The weirdest MCU movie yet?

I'm the Entertainment Writer here at GamesRadar+, focusing on news, features, and interviews with some of the biggest names in film and TV. On-site, you'll find me marveling at Marvel and providing analysis and room temperature takes on the newest films, Star Wars and, of course, anime. Outside of GR, I love getting lost in a good 100-hour JRPG, Warzone, and kicking back on the (virtual) field with Football Manager. My work has also been featured in OPM, FourFourTwo, and Game Revolution.
