Cloak & Swagger
Prior to seeing this movie – this is what I knew about the comic book character Doctor Strange… nothing! Well, I knew what he looked like, and figured he was guy who had a doctorate in something, but I didn’t even know if he was a good guy or a bad guy or even if he was a Marvel or a DC character. Well, after watching his origin story – I now know who Doctor Strange is, and what he’s all about, and how I want nothing more than 894391293193 more Doctor Strange movies starring Benedict Cumberbatch. BENEFCUKINGDICT CUMBERSNATCH!!!!!!!!!!!
But, I only want to see Benedict Cumberbatch do his Strange things – solo, and not alongside the Hulk or Spidey or Captain America or Iron Man or Ironweed or Scarlet Fever or Hawkeye Pierce or Trapper John MD. While I like SOME Marvel movies, I’m sick and tired of the crossovers and seeing the same dudes over and over and over and under and over, and not doing anything really new, or interesting, or newly interesting. This Doctor Strange movie felt different from the rest of those Marvel movies, from tone (it was like a real movie!), and to universe (more mystical, less comic-al). What goes on feels miles away from all that Avengers jazz, which to me, is juss a bunch of loud noises. While the Avengers dudes destroy buildings, the Doctor Strange folks bend and fold buildings!!!
I’ll take bending/folding buildings over destroying them 9999999999999 out of 9999999999999 times
This movie was cooler and made more sense than the other building bending/folding movie – Inception. EAT THAT CHRISTOPHER NOLAN!!!!
So, what more do you need to know besides Cumberbendi and bendi-buildings? Mads Mikkelsen is the sh!t? If you didn’t know that already, you SADS Mikkelsen!!!
