One of the most highly-anticipated movies of the year is now in theaters, but even though the delayed Rotten Tomatoes score has finally been released, is it worth the wait? A score of other movies - big and small - are set to open as well, and a few documentaries and smaller gems will be released on streaming and On Demand services too. It's a big week for movies!
Here are reviews for all of the new films seeing release this week, Friday, November 17, 2017:
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) used to be a charismatic, cocksure super-hero when he first appeared in his own film back in 2011. Now he - and pretty much every other character in "Thor: Ragnarok" - is completely unrecognizable just three films (and countless cross-overs) later. That first film was a lot of fun and never took itself too seriously, but flash-forward to "Ragnorak," and Thor might as well be vying for the opening act at The Improv. Under the direction of zany-comedy director Taika Waititi ("Boy," "What We Do in the Shadows"), this latest movie is a full-fledged screwball comedy, and one of the most bizarre chapters in the unraveling disaster that is the ongoing Marvel Movie Universe.
