Dr.Strange: My little review! (SPOILERS)

Man oh man. The movie was good. not just good, but great. Not just great, amazing. Not just amazing, but MARVELous. I’m not sorry. You came for my two cents, so lets get it, lets go!


  • Did I know Benedict Cumberbatch was going to be a good Dr.Strange?Yes. Did he prove me right? Yes. Welcome to the MCU Ben, welcome!
  • Cumberbatch’s American accent was actually really quiet good. At first it took me by surprise, but quickly got used to it.
  • Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, was everything. Her bald head was everything I hoped for.
  • Benedict did a great job really personifying the essence of Stephen Strange, all his humor, arrogance, fast speech, conspicuous ego. He made the journey of humbling himself more believable.
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor is always a great actor, and I’m so excited to see him as a bad guy, in the Marvel universe!
  • Rachel McAdams as Catherine Palmer was great, I honestly wish there was more of her in the film.
  • Mads Mikkelson, as villainous as ever. 
  • Dormammu of the Dark Dimension. I really liked how they personified him, you could really see his expressions of anger and confusion when Strange was trying to “bargain” with him.
  • The film itself is actually pretty humorous, though it has it dark moments which it should. I did find myself laughing a lot throughout the film.
  • Don’t get me started on the VISUAL EFFECTS!!!!!!!! Marvel absolutely outdid themselves on the visual effects, they were amazing. Seeing them in 3D or not, the effects are just as awesome. I can see where people say it has Inception vibes.
  • THE CLOAK OF LEVITATION! It should have it’s own movie.
  • The jab about the infinity stones. 
  • The way Palmer kissed Strange’s cheek! I honestly thought that was way more tender and fitting then a kiss on the mouth. I genuinely liked that shared moment.
  • THOR.

This movie was so good. Go tell your wife, mom, brother, friend, garbage man to go see this movie.  It extremely fun to watch, not a dull moment. Or just go see it for the sake of Benedict Cumberbatch’s wistful eyes and baritone voice. 

Mikkelsen says he never consciously plotted to break into Hollywood, and notes that most of the big roles he’s played came about after directors saw him in something and approached him with a part. “I came over here and got an agent after Casino Royale, and after that I had quite a few auditions,” Mikkelsen says. “But one day I found myself in an office, trying out for a Fantastic Four something, extending my arms like a rubber man, and I was like, ‘This is so embarrassing. I’m standing in a fucking office, reaching for something on the other side of the room, and I have one line. I can’t do this anymore.’” He shakes his head at the memory. “Happily, I get phone calls now.”
