Doctor Strange ★★★½

Kaecilius: You'll die protecting this world... Mister?
Strange: Doctor...
Kaecilius: Mister Doctor..?
Strange:It's Strange
Kaecilius:Maybe, who am I to judge.

Doctor Strange? More like A Million Ways To Die in the Dark Dimension amirite?

Doctor Strange is one of the MCU's most trippy and coolest looking films. We can see some similarities and formulaic patterns in the film, yet it is one of the most ambitious films the MCU has put out in recent years. I would claim it to be underrated but I'm not sure how many people actually love this vs. hate this. I remember watching the trailers for this and I thought it was going to be dumb - but I watched it anyway because of my love for Benedict Cumberbatch. It's one of the few MCU films I missed out on in the theaters. The theater experience must have been crazy awesome for this film. Again, I have a soft spot for time themed films - and this is no exception.

Time for some Michael Giacchino praise! This man can do no wrong (except Cars 2 but that wasn't his fault). All his compositions are spot on and his theme for Doctor Strange is excellent. It's catchy, weird, and memorable. The score is one of the most character-defining scores the MCU has ever produced in my opinion. Overall a great introduction to Stephen Strange and his world of multiple dimensions.
