Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange ★★★★

"We never lose our demons, Mordo. We only learn to live above them."

Doctor Strange is the 4th best MCU Film in my opinion and for good reason. First of all I have to praise the visuals because jesus christ they're fucking GORGEOUS, how it didn't win the oscar is beyond me. Benedict Cumberbatch fits the character of Stephen Strange extremely well (better than a surgical glove you might say) and I can't wait to see more of him in future MCU films. Chiwetel Ejiofor puts in another great performance as I've grown to expect, Tilda turned out to be a good choice for The Ancient One, Benedict "Just Wong" Wong was a joy to watch throughout the whole movie as well. The final act of this film is an absolute blast, from the stunning visuals to the fight where everything around them is in playback to the hilarious "Dormammu, I've come to bargain!" It's simply brilliant.

My only major gripe is the way McAdams was handled (wasted) which is something we've come to expect from Marvel, however that being said she was still great when onscreen.

Well done, Scott Derrickson.
