Our reaction to a score like that should be the opposite. We're turning into spoiled brats :P

Also, the uploader of that video misspelled Ragnarok!

No, I know. It's just I put so much emphasis on it reaching 97%, and then it did, and now it has tumbled by 2%. So you know had to make a thing out of it, but I am not really disappointed as much as just having fun.

This movie is doing exceptionally well and even if it ended in the low 90's I would still be amazed that we are surrounded by so many great Marvel films.

I knew you knew :P

Was the uploader's username just a funny coincidence? Or did your choice have something to do with his fitting name? lol

RT scores for MCU movies that are released OS first usually drop a bit once they hit the US release date. US critics just seem to be a little bit harder to please for some reason.

I had heard this before and it's why I talked about the group of early reviewers being different from the group of later ones. That is the second not being representative of the first.

Indeed. Thor The Dark World had great overseas reviews and I remember it even getting the “certified fresh” icon for a very short spell, but eventually the US reviews REALLY tanked that movie’s RT score.
