Full reviews will be posted after the embargo is lifted, but it looks like a fresh score is ahead -- maybe not top of the heap, but high.

"Thor: Ragnarok" stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, alongside Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Cate Blanchett as Hela the Goddess of Death. Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and Anthony Hopkins co-star. The movie arrives in theaters on November 3.
