I spent the afternoon with a good friend at the theater. We saw Dr. Strange. It’s nice to find someone who shares my taste in movies. I loved the special effects and story behind the Marvel character. I’ve got to say; I didn’t know this character until recently but truly enjoyed the movie. Hollywood has recently dipped into the super-hero pond and caught some fascinating stories to tell. Dr. Strange was another addition to their stringer.
The character, Dr. Stephen Strange, was a neuro surgeon who lost the use of his hands in an auto accident. But like all super heroes, he found a way around his disability using magic and finally had to face his own shortcoming – and Strange had several. The special effects were fantastic, and I didn’t even opt for the 3D effect. There was plenty of comic relief about his name, and Thor even made an entrance at the end.
Disney has come a long way in the last few years beginning with the Pirates of the Caribbean series and I’m looking forward to seeing the new ones.
This summer my friend and I caught up on movies we hadn’t seen in a while: all eight of the Star Wars, six Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, and now we’re working on the Marvel Comic characters. It is a tough job, but someone has to do it.
I recommend Dr. Strange if you enjoy the genre – or even if you don’t. We might create a convert.
