Let me just give a minute long standing ovation for everyone involved in the making of this movie... YOU GUYS ARE TRULY AMAZING THE MOVIE IS BY FAR THE MOST AWESOME ONE I'VE SEEN IN THE CINEMAS.

Okay, sorry for using capslock. It's just that Doctor Strange is so good it made me speechless (and it did make a great post-exam stress reliever). however, I was 10 bad minutes late for the movie (too bad and saddening really that I didn't get to see the first few scenes), nonetheless, I'm actually so pleased with how the movie turned out to be (please note that I'm not taking sides on the Marvel vs DC war). 

The storyline is great, it begins with explaining who doctor Stephen Strange (played by the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch) is through how he interacts with people, his lifestyle and his view of the world. It also explained the role of Christine (played by Rachel McAdams) in Doctor Strange's life. Then the moviegoers were being stunned with the first surprise twist, how Doctor Strange's dealt with his pain and grief. This part also shows his very egocentrically arrogant selfish self (I don't know whether its grammatically right or not, its just that Cumberbatch portrayed Strange's selfishness in a way that makes you want to punch the movie screen... which is a terribly awesome acting by the way). Tilda Swinton's act as The Ancient One is also great, I mean, let's not forget the part that she cut all her hair off a.k.a being bald to fulfill her role in the movie. I MEAN ALL CASTS THEY DID AMAZING JOB, ALRIGHT? I also like the part that The Ancient One is played by a woman, tho, because from what I read it was supposed to be a male that plays the role (they even consider Morgan Freeman to take the role). The fact that this movie is a PG-13 and it doesn't objectify women... is awesome! Even though some parts are not PG-13 worthy, like that part where there were so much hands, it actually frightened me. Doctor Strange also filled with not-too-bad humor throughout the movie and its really fun to see and to hear those. 

AND THE EFFECTS OH MY GOD.
It's like inception + avatar, I honestly don't know how to describe this awesomely mind-bending movie. The movie editing, the angles, the special effects, the music and all other factors like costumes and make-up are awesomely neat and ah-almost-perfect to me. I couldn't help but want to see this movie once again. 

I gave this movie a 9/10.
Honestly guys, go see it! Worth every penny! It's so entertaining and surprisingly funny with tons of amazing kaleidoscope-like images to fill your brain with.
