DOCTOR STRANGE (2016)
Had a good time seeing this in a tiny theater on opening Friday with a happy crowd. I harbored secret hopes that Harmon was more involved than a pass-over, but you couldn't really detect his touch. I don't know jack about Doctor Strange but seeing it has me interested in picking up the Ditko run. I don't think I sighed once during the movie and Steph tells me I sigh many times during most Marvel movies. I am unaware of this and ashamed (and secretly proud) of my autonomic nervous system. I am not sure they gave BenCum (I just ruined your day) enough meat to chew on--dude was astonishing in HAMLET (2015) and I hope he gets pushed to his limits. Then again, I still need to see THE IMITATION GAME (2015).
