Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange ★★★½

A good origin story and some cool visuals. In the grand scheme of things, it's not a huge deviation from the MCU formula, and it definitely takes a lot from its influences, but I still found it entertaining. I appreciate that Strange doesn't expertly wield his powers right away, and then is hesitant to use them when he does. He has a big ego, but also morals, like most doctors do. The movie lives up to its name.

Bonus points for an ending that doesn't lead to destruction but instead the opposite, and extra bonus points for Tilda and Mads. It might be the same derivative MCU villain but it's Mads.
