    Doctor Strange

    ★★★½

    Doctor Strange surprised me with how interested I was watching it. The trailers didn't do much for me so expectations were low and perhaps that's why I was entertained by it so much.

    Pretty much everyone in the film was great, but Tilda Swinton stole the show for me. That woman is a treasure, and she should be kept safe from this awful world. <3

    Why waste Mads Mikkelsen though??

    ★★★★

    I really liked it.

    Like, I can understand why someone wouldn't like The Accountant, but I thought it was fantastic. One of the most entertaining movies I've seen in a long while. Also really appreciated how a cliche was sidestepped at the end, even though every. single. end. is tied into a lovely neat bow.

    Holy fucking shit. This movie was intense. Brilliant performances by all the cast etc etc.....Whew...let me calm down for a bit...

    EDIT

    Miles Teller is a superstar, plain and simple. You mark my words -…

    ★★★★

    Well, the marketing for this film was shockingly bad. The trailers tried to portray this film as a "deep exploration of the human psyche" and so I kind of thought "meh" and avoided it for the better part of a year. Sitting down with my mom on her birthday we decided to watch it, and boy am I glad it wasn't a deep exploration of the human psyche. It is infact a very entertaining and smart action movie. Tom Cruise gives a solid performance as always, as does Emily Blunt as the "Full Metal Bitch". Watch it if you fancy Groundhog Day on steroids.
