Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange ★★★★

"You're a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You've spent your life trying to widen it. Your work saved the lives of thousands. What if I told you that reality is one of many?"

As phase 3 has kicked off, we're now going on a psychadelic path of scorcery, dimension-diving and the bending of time and space. Pushing the limits of what people actually want to see, the MCU finally introduces the Sorcerer Supreme and they've cast the incredible Benedict Cumberbatch, hell yeah.

Both the character and actor is such an amazing addition to the cinematic universe, bringing diversity and range to it. Not to mention the fantastic Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and Benedict Wong, who makes for a good ensemble here.

Strange: "What's this? My mantra?"
Mordo: "It's the wi-fi password. We're not savages."

When a selfcentered top surgeon's life changing accident destroys him, Stephen Strange discovers a whole new version of living. Through a journey of belief, creativity and imagination, he transforms himself into a unlikely protector of magical and mystical threats to earth.

"Dormammu, I've come To Bargain."

A great origin for Doctor Strange, entertaining and satisfying, where the breathtaking visuals almost feels like a dream with a mind of its own. And boy, does this makes it exciting for what's about to come next.

"You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?"

Ranked at number 13 in my MCU list
