Saw Doctor Strange this weekend (wow, I really wanted to type Doctor Who just now). It was pretty good, but it wasn't awesome. Better than Iron Man 2 but it was no Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

I mean, the movie looked stunning. The Inception like folding of the landscapes that you glimpse in the trailers is just a small taste of what's in the actual movie. It must look crazy in 3D. But pretty effects alone can't prop up a story completely.

Spoilers for Doctor Strange )

Oh, and here's a neat fact (that should please you very much [livejournal.com profile] newnumber6): Apparently Nico Minoru's mother is in the film and she wields the Staff of One. Runaways set-up! I suppose they could have just borrowed the design of the Staff of One, but I like to think that it's eventual set-up for the Runaways TV show Marvel is developing.

So next is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then Spider-Man: Homecoming, and then Thor: Ragnarok. And then there's the Netflix side of things with Iron Fist and The Defenders. Wow, 2017 is going to be a busy year for Marvel.
