Is there a doctor in the house?
Last night I had the pleasure in watching the midnight release of Marvels latest and most impressive visual movie in that of Dr. Strange. What can I say about this movie? Off the bat I need to mention just how visually stunning the movie was. The unique way that the film utilized the surrounding environment as weapons just made the little 12 year old boy in me squee in delight. But before we continue, we need to address the elephant in the room. That is the casting of the Ancient one. We all know about whitewashing in Hollywood and with that I tend to agree with this casting. I love Tilda Swinton! She is a very talented actress and her performance was good in this movie. But I truly believe that they should have casted asian actor in this role. I am convinced that Bennedict Cumberbatch was the perfect actor to land the title role. His cocky demeanor reads well on film. It's refershing to see him bring humor to a role. We are used to him playing characters with heavy hearts. The humor in this film was placed in the correct spots but at times it did ruin the climax of certain action sequences. I can't wait to see how Strange interacts with the rest of the MCU cast. I give this movie a 9/10.
