VIDEO: MOVIES: CARTOONS: REVIEW: Doctor Strange (2007)

Doctor Strange – The Sorcerer Supreme (2007) – 
Clint: 4/5 stars, 8/10. 
Carolyn: 5/5 stars, 9/10. 
Native ratings: 3.8/5 stars Netflix, /10 IMDB.

Carolyn: This was a good animated Marvel movie.  I am not as familiar with Doctor Strange in the comic book realm, so it was interesting to see his origin story.  The Marvel animated movies rarely disappoint, anyway.

Clint: I have to agree. This is the type of stuff we like. This isn’t one of the best, but I suspect it’s the only feature-length Doctor Strange origin movie that’s worth watching. 

I wasn’t as wow’ed by it as Carolyn, as I’m starting to get jaded from watching so.many.movies lately. I’m starting to get to that age where you notice stories are becoming less unique: This felt like a combo of the origin stories of Batman (in Batman Begins) and Green Lantern (in terms of ancient leaders and their corrupt inner circle members), combined with the latest season of Avatar:The Legend Of Korra (in terms of demonic gods trying to break through to our realm). I should probably take a break from watching movies for a bit, to become less jaded. (But I really want to watch one tonite!)

One interesting thing: The sound mix was excellent.

CARTOONS: What’s so funny ‘bout peace, love, and BronyCon?

City Paper had a featured article on BronyCon. It kinda sheds light and explains things and is generally a well-written, well thought out article.

TV SHOWS: Help TODD AND THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL Get Animated!

SHUT UP AND GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY.

This is the best live-action supernatural comedy series to ever be made, and it’s just unacceptable to have the ending cliffhanger never resolved.

This is the logical thing to do: An animated movie to end it all.

CARTOONS: Aeon Flux:The Peter Chung Interview!!!!

FUCK how did I miss this Peter Chung interview posted to LiveJournal in 2006?!?!?!  He finally talks about hating the movie, and reveals “secrets” about the original MTV 1990s animation. Good stuff.

“Q: Trevor and Aeon possess antithetical believes about state policy and political identity. Are their views reconcilable? Could you say you identify with one stance more than the other?

No, they are not reconcilable. In fact, their existence depends on the eternal struggle between their respective views. They are aware of this “dependency” on the other, and that is why they can never bring themselves to destroy the other. 

Till now, I’ve resisted stating outright how I’ve defined the relationship between Aeon and Trevor in my mind, as I preferred to let the viewer decide. However, with the movie’s shot at a definitive explanation on view, and with 10 years for viewers to make up their minds, I suppose I might as well. In spite of what people have said, their relationship is consistent and makes sense. It is not only perfectly logical, but the only way it could be. Their respective personalities define the relationship and the relationship defines their personalities. 

Once and for all– Aeon is NOT out to kill Trevor. (Where do people get this idea?) Even in the Pilot, she refrains from shooting him in the elevator.

CARTOONS: ANIME: Why Robotech is the greatest love story of the 20th century

Okay, this was a great read. Thank you, Ryan!

Love knows no bounds
Love is messy
Love hurts
Love is gross
Love is dumb
Love is all that really matters

Love is like racing across the frozen tundra on a snowmobile which flips over, trapping you underneath. At night, the ice-weasels come.
