The soundtrack is awesome! Chris Pratt does not do much for me, but I did manage to catch a hot screen shot. The funny thing is I don’t remember; I thought I had taken a picture of Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. I guess I was wrong. 😀

The story was kind of weak, once again, having the feeling like we just dropped in for an episode of Home and Gardens presents “Breakfast with The Ricardo’s.” The only difference, is that I don’t think I would be receptive to some space food. Anyway, I remember being bounced around the clouds, try to figure something out. When the root of the plot is revealed, I still had some questions.

Did I mention how awesome the soundtrack is for this movie?

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange (2016)


From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing—and hope—in an unlikely place: a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.

“Doctor Strange” stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins, with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Scott Derrickson is directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Jon Spaihts and Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying and totally mind-bending journey when Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” opens in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2016.

Strange. 🙂 About 90% sure when Dr. Strange became a super hero 😕 but felt decision lacked transformation development time: surgeon > Supreme Master? Why Strange? What is the connection that empowers his powers? Knowledge? Subtle, but true. Unlike Batman: civilian > crime fighter…self-explanatory!

Take that one step further: how does the stealing of the page connect Dormammu to Stephen Strange? At least Batman had a reason to get the person that murdered his parents: Vengeance!

In the end, I was agreeing with Mordo 🙁

Graphically and filmography related, reminded me of Inception :O 🙂

Benjamin looks good with all the make up accentuations.
