Caught Doctor Strange today. Fun movie, though since it's a Marvel origin movie you've seen the same general thing before. In this case it's sort of Iron Man with magic instead of a mech suit: arrogant jerk gets humbled, learns how to be a hero, beats bad guy who has the same general power set but chose the other side, etc. Cumberbatch is as perfect as Strange as everyone thought he would be. Rachel McAdams has a bit role and it's a shame she didn't get more to do but she makes the most of it and, refreshingly, doesn't get crammed into a damsel-in-distress bit. You'll love Wong. Chiki Ejowfor or however the frack u spell it is fine but his character Mordo didn't do anything for me and he prospect of seeing more of him doesn't excite. Your mileage may vary. As usual the villain is forgettable, he's just there to move the plot along between bouts of exposition and sfx. Speaking of the sfx, the visuals are awesome. Definitely spring for 3D if you go. And if you've been saving up some shrooms or a tab of acid do those too. Oh, one last thing, the breakout character of the film is a piece of apparel. You'll understand if you go.

Finally saw Rogue One. Overall impression: meh. Loved the callbacks/setup for/Easter eggs from A New Hope, the big battle is lots of fun and so are the smaller fights...but in the end none of it really engaged me because I didn't care about any of the characters. They just sort of meet up and you never learn much about any of them, and they don't get much interaction time. Good action movies can use action to develop characters (Marvel movies are all about this) but here it's just lots of fx and stuff blowing up and occasionally some of the heroes do cool fight stuff.

2/4 stars.
