Dr. Strange (3D)

Marvel Comics movie about an arrogant but brilliant surgeon (Benedict Cumberbatch) who loses his hands in an accident. In the quest to restore them, meets the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) in Nepal whom he hopes will help him to regain 100% use of his hands. This is a very good movie, Cumberbatch proves to be a funny and believable superhero, and Tilda Swinton is wonderful in her role. The film is really fun to watch – there are a lot of special effects which are rather mind-bending as the protagonists and antagonists distort reality in their various battles. I personally liked the metaphysical aspects of the story, even if that particular part of the storyline did not always work so well. Thumbs up for a film that could have been more philosophically interesting and profound but still (at least as a 3D film) provides a lot of visual artistry and some good laughs. Rey went to see this with me and also enjoyed it. I think I might not have liked it as much without 3D. Also, stay until the very end – there are some scenes after the title credits and then another clip at the very end of the credits.
