The psychedelic sequences were beautifully done — stunning, in fact; it's one of the few films where I was thankful to have seen it in 3D — and the dialogue was interesting and thankfully lacking the ridiculous level of exposition normally found in Marvel movies. Tilda Swinton was amazing as usual. I also like how unlikable the titular character was in the beginning, and still slightly is by the end of the film; it's nice to not have a goody-goody superhero rammed down your throat. 8/10

I remember when you said that you thought Doctor Strange was really cringey :lol: but I knew that you and René would really like the film (once you saw it). :keke:

Well, that's how the trailer seemed! It totally could have been cringey if they had normal Marvel levels of pseudoscientific (in this case it would be pseudoreligious or pseudophilosophical) exposition. Tilda's character said it best: "Not everything [makes sense]. Not everything has to." That's that, with no further 5 minutes of bullshit. :lol:

Saw Doctor Strange as well yesterday! Almost definitely my favorite origin movie in the MCU. Tilda, Cumberbatch, Mikkelsen and almost every other major character was perfectly cast, the visuals were stellar and I kind of regret not seeing it in 3D now. The humor was mostly really good for a superhero movie and it was never once boring.

I have to admit that I kind of hoped this would be the one marvel movie with a very different tone than the others, they tend to get a bit too uniform for me, especially the soundtracks. Then again, I think none of their movies did the 'origin story with a basic plot' as well as this one!

I finally got round to seeing Miss Peregrine today.

When they went to Blackpool Tower I was grinning from ear to ear. I go there every year! I was even in the Tower Circus less than a fortnight ago! :awesome: :awesome: :awesome:

I'm actually surprised no one had told me about that already. :lol:
Don't think about doing it tomorrow. You won't do it tomorrow. Do it today.

Anyone else super excited for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? The Harry Potter world is one of my fondest childhood memories, so I'm really nostalgic for it. Luckily, despite my fears, early reviews are actually quite good!

I am definitely really excited for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?, it's out in just a few more day, on Friday, so I can't wait to see it. The London premiere is this Tuesday and I am glad the early reviews are good as I've been waiting to see this film all year! I just read that it had 100% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. :)

I'm really excited, too, now! (Unfortunately) we're spending this coming weekend with René's parents and youngest sister in Liverpool, so we'll have to wait until sometime the following week to see it.

I also probably will have to wait some time to watch it. Honestly, the amount of movies I want to see in theatre is bankrupting me this year.

Watching films and going to the cinema is one of my favourite hobbies, so I have an unlimited card that I pay about £17 pounds a month to watch unlimited films at one of the giant cinema chains in the UK. It really works for me as I try to watch at least one film per week in the cinema, and the cinema prices in London is expensive. :)

Cinema tickets are ridiculous even up here; I'd be scared to even look up the prices in London.

Back in Michigan I used to go to the cinema for $6… or even $5 during the day. And my mom's work gave out bunches of free tickets all the time to employees who got positive customer feedback, so my friends and I would go to the cinema almost every weekend for nothing.

It depends where you go in London. I always try and use the Odeon in Camden, it's a pretty nice cinema and tickets cost £7.

It's at least 10 euros here, but I do have a student discount card, which makes it about €2,50 cheaper.

There are cheaper cinemas, but they tend to have smaller screens and inferior sound, which I do not tolerate if it's a movie I'm particularly interested in. :lol:

I watched Arrival in the cinema and I really enjoyed it. Amy Adams's performance as the main character was terrific, I enjoyed the sustained intense and suspenseful atmosphere and the film does well at simultaneously challenging the viewers. IMO there's a great story, great cast and director, and the special effects team delivered, too. :)

I saw Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them today in 3D at the cinema and I enjoyed the film. Despite taking place way before our known Harry Potter time, it has so many great moments, it's happy and funny yet serious enough and there are enough quick and witty references to our known Harry Potter world throughout the film. Fantastic imagination and script by JK Rowling. :)

I love the notion of how a psychologically-damaged/abused magical child could become an uncontrollable destructive entity.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2's latest teaser trailer was awesome; Baby Groot is too cute! :3
