Dr. Strange

Good morning!

Marvel Movie Studios has done it again and brought us another fabulous superhero movie, and I'm so happy the streak continues.

Dr. Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a brilliant neurosurgeon, and boy does he know it. Flying high on his arrogance and self-importance, the world as he knows it comes to an abrupt end when he is involved in a car accident on the way to a speaking engagement.

With his hands unable to perform the work that defined him, he searches endlessly to the point of madness for a cure. Following a lead that seems to be almost too good to be true, he ends up in Nepal, thinking he might have found a haven in cutting-edge eastern medicine, but instead finds a group of sorcerers who tap into magic to protect the Earth from villains from the Multiverse.

Despite a few instances of uneven pacing, I loved Dr. Strange. I understood his pain and desperation to retain his glory. The fight scenes were phenomenal and the special effects on point. You have no idea how much I want to be able to fashion a shield or chain of flame out of thin air. That would be so cool! And I appreciated the moments of unexpected humor that lightened the mood when times turned dark and depressing.

But as always, they added a love interest that did not need to be there. Rachel McAdams is a lovely woman, but her role wasn't necessary. That character could have been a sister or an esteemed college and would have had the same impact on the story. But other than that, the movie is fantastic and I can't wait to see it again.

And for the love of all that is holy, stay until after the credits. It's a Marvel movie. There is always a payoff. Now, if you insist on leaving, I can't stop you. But seriously, stay!

Until next time!
