Spoiler-free review of Doctor Strange: If you liked Inception for the production design and special effects, you're going to love this movie. There were a lot of times when I thought I felt like I was watching someone else's acid trip. I'm not going to bother addressing the plot because, eh, whatever. It's a Marvel origin story. It's pretty much exactly what you would expect. And I want the honeycomb-ish book cage wall things (shown in the opening scene, so I don't consider that to be a spoiler). And a house big enough to justify having them as room dividers. Oh, and there are two stingers: One partway through the credits and one at the very very end.
- Cool production design.
- Psychedelic and drug-trippy special effects.
- Two stingers, so stay until the very end after all of the credits.
(Also, if you're watching the movie wondering why Wong looks so familiar, you might have recently seen the Black Mirror episode Hated in the Nation. He's done a lot of stuff, but that's the most recent thing.)
