WOW! That Opening certainly beat DiCaprio’s bendy Inception!
The shifty Scenery is more mind blowing than just bending.
So the cause of the accident that ruins Doctor Strange’s hand, he was driving not only super fast but talking on the phone as well. I honestly feel bad more for that car than the doc. However as far as the Doc’s hands go, I can relate in a way.. as I have been having a problem with my right since the beginning of 2016….to the point I quite often get very frustrated as I cannot pick things up, or write.
Well there is certainly a lot to take in during this movie as far as the scenery goes. There were times like those scenes with the moving walls I didn’t know what to focus on, or where to focus. For this movie it may be best to sit in a row more towards the middle of the theater!
During The Doctor’s research into getting his hands back, a file is taken from archives for him, on Jonathan Pangborn (played by
Bemjamin Bratt) who was a former patient of Strange’s that was somehow paralyzed, and turned away by the doc; however he some how found a way to be able to walk again.
Surrender Control to gain control
Doctor Strange ~ ‘What’s in the tea….LSD? (after a trippy scene.)
Ancient Have you seen that before in a gift shop?
No one knows how old the Ancient One really is, only that she’s Celtic (me thinks Druid, is more likely)
There’s Sanctums in New York, London and Hong Kong that protect the world
They use the mirror dimension to practice and observe as what happens there does not interfere with this reality, however dark sorcerers can be more powerful in it
The infinite multiverses = infinite dangers
(no really? gods that sounds too much like the over done Spider-man “With Great power…..” line)
There are mild funny instances but not like the laugh out loud ones we get from the Avengers movies characters.
Kaecilius: Mister Doctor
Kaecilius: We’ll see
However they did the ‘moving’ sets practical, CGI or a bit of both I LOVE them! I hope the blu-ray will have a Behind the Scenes of how they did that in the special features. Plus I can’t wait to do some lay pause/slow motion to see it unravel slower. The make-up FX love the purple and ‘scales’ around Mads eyes (almost makes me think Captain Hook from Once Upon a time will show up and call him Gator or crocodile.)
Another Favorite is the Cloak of Levitation, it most certainly has a sense of humor of its own and those are the times the room was a well of laughter! (especially during a fight scene) Then there was that set of hand…errr make that body cuff.
Am I the only one, but does Dormomu, the face in the stars look a lot like Thanos to you?
Now THAT…Was an adventure! Though I’m not sure if I like this or Civil war better than the other, but then they are 2 types of movies.I’m somewhat speechless aside from the notes I took while watching the movie, so I think I’m going to need another view as I think the first viewing put me into a shock of sorts.
Time Kills Everything
2 Easter Egg scenes- one with Thor and the other well you’ll just have to wait to watch!
For those of you with an Alamo Draft house near you as an Alamo Victory member I am a Victory member. This movie marked a milestone and I reached the Fighter Level which got me a free non-alcoholic milkshake. So I ordered a Chocolate Peanut Butter one and found Bliss in a shake!I think they make it from scratch as there were chopped peanuts in it and not globs of peanut butter (or syrup) like most places do.
did you spot Stan Lee with Laws of perception book in hand
