So, Doctor Strange.
I’m watching this movie. Not only that, but I have tickets to see it tonight, Thursday evening, November 3rd, 2016, as soon as I can. At first I was afraid of saying that on here because this website is so hostile to what it brands as impure, but I’m not going to let some stupid website hold me back from just enjoying a movie I’ve been waiting for since I was a kid, especially when it looks great.
On the subject of casting, as far as Benedict Cumberbatch goes, you guys need to get off your high horse. It is never okay to insult a person’s physical appearance, but you guys are assholes and do it anyway. Has he said stuff that’s not okay in the past? Sure, but so do every one of you. Is he a bit overrated? Maybe, but that’s not a reason to hate him you douchebag hipsters.
As far as The Ancient One goes, they took a male role and gave it to a female. THAT IN ITSELF IS HUGE AND AWESOME. Yes, she’s white, but you guys complain if Asians are portrayed as the mystical trope so instead they gave it to a white woman and tried to avoid that fallout, but you guys can’t be pleased.
In addition, they changed Mordo, a white European, to a black man with Chiwetel Ejiofor. Did you hear that?? They used a person of color to portray this role that is traditionally white, that’s awesome, but you guys just completely gloss over that fact.
Yes, there was some (some) white washing, the director owned up to that and apologized. Yes, there’s that whole touchy subject about Tibet. But overall, you’re all just pretentious assholes who think you’re better than the filmmakers, and I’m not letting you hold me back from enjoying a film about one of my favorite superheroes in the Marvel universe.
Just go enjoy the movie.
