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.
