I very much enjoyed Doctor Strange. A great origin story to a strange superhero (no pun intended). It deals with different kinds of powers, in a familiar story setting. Much like Iron Man, an arrogant, intelligent and self-centered man has it all, until he doesn't and learns that life isn't all about him. Obviously its a very different story but they have similar qualities. Benedict Cumberbatch was the perfect choice to play Stephen Strange. He's such a great actor, it's fun to watch him become a cool superhero. It's one of the stronger MCU standalone films. The overall plot is very interesting and different from what we are used to. I appreciated the trippiness of the film. Although, I felt the pacing of this movie was odd, and I felt like the story was rushed. In the end, this movie is crucial for future MCU movies. Without Doctor Strange, the Avengers couldn't have defeated Thanos in Endgame.

Master Michael Giacchino's debut as a composer in an MCU movie! He knocks it out of the park. It's filled with whimsical themes that compliment Doctor Strange. Overall a very entertaining film, I always enjoy re-watching.
