Who can stop Marvel Studios’ continued run of Box Office Domination? Apparently not even the forces of the negaverse or whatever the hell Doctor Strange was fighting in this movie, because A.Ron and Jim (yes, even Jim!) ate it up and saw it in two packed houses this evening. Full to bursting with imaginative ideas and visuals that must be seen to be believed, and even then just barely, Doctor Strange is just relentlessly cool and fun. Benedict Cumberbatch leads a team of A-list Hollywood talent using all of their considerable powers to make you believe this world that is full of crazy baloney ideas and imagery is rock solid and every bit as realized as the real world. If you have even a passing interest in comic book movies or just want to see what the new state of the art in terms of effects work is, go see it on the biggest screen you can find.
Jim and A.Ron saw the latest kinda-sorta-Marvel movie, “Deadpool”, and found it defied their expectations. Rather pleasantly so. What we were expecting is some kind of Dumpuary disaster, and what we got was a slick, action packed, very hard “R”, very funny send up of the super hero genre. If you like movies in the “Cranked” franchise, or the latest “Kingsmen” flick, you’ll be right at home. If you want our general thoughts and opinions, as well as what we’re excited for in the “coming soon” trailers, you are welcome to help yourself, but we save the spoiler-filled deep dive for Bald Move Club members only!
