Funny part is, my GF who didnt watch the youtube video which I shared with her to prepare for this movie was clueless most of the time. She was like, WTF is happening. :rofl: Watch Wandavision atleast if you wanna connect with the story. 

 

Good to see Wanda in full form. In magic, Dr Strange is basically that Jugadoo student of class who doesnt study well but somehow manages to get good grade while Wanda is the IIT topper who is on ultra level. Its apparent throughout the movie.

Saw Pain & Gain. It's basically America: The Movie. Very enjoyable! Probably the closest anyone could get to the live-action adaptation of GTA 5. Even the visuals are very similar! I checked the release dates to see if GTA 5 was inspired from this movie or the other way, but both came out in the same year, although the movie released first.

 

Then I saw The Rock. Absolute banger from start to finish! Loved Sean Connery's performance. It wouldn't be the same movie without his presence. And Michael Bay knows how to make use of your subwoofer! The sound mixing in his movies is always so good without hurting your ears. There's also something about 90's and 2000's movies. I think they balanced everything right depending on the genre, be it the softness, machoism, heart/human element and fun factor without hurting each other or overdoing it (like today's MCU where it's bordering parody). Movies are different now. I think aiming too much for realism and perfection has made everything stale (like Denis Vanilla's Dune and The Batman), even the visuals.

 

Planning to watch 13 Hours next. I think I am going to become a full time Bay fan if I like this one too after enjoying Ambulance and above mentioned movies.

 

Wait, I realised that I still haven't seen his Bad Boys series. :mellow:

13 Hours is actually a very good movie. Probably one of the best of that genre I've seen.

DS2 is a complete Sam Raimi movie! It has the horror vibe of Evil Dead and Army of Darkness throughout, a treat for fans of his work. My first day first show audience went nuts at *certain scenes*.  Strange and Wanda are both amazing in this, even the newcomer America Chavez. 

Oh yes it's awesome. The horror elements and even the violence is great. Definitely not for kids.

That's what I've heard too! Currently looking at 4K Blu-Ray reviews to see if it's a huge upgrade over 1080p.

Finally watched DS2. Out and out a Sam Raimi movie, within whatever limits Marvel placed on him. 

 

Spoiler

Did not like the "happy" ending though. The stories need to accept complex endings. The 2 post credit scenes - TROLLMAX ! :rofl:

Watched DS2, what an absolute banger. Raimi’ness is through the roof. My screening popped off at every cameo and intro.

 

 I’m on mobile note. Will get to desktop to post spoilers

Watched Dr Strange 2. Easily the best movie for me of Phase 4. As far as I'm concerned, the keys to next Avengers can be given to Raimi. Did a phenomenal job with incorporating his own creativity and also giving audiences some fan service. Felt like he understood all the characters well and gave them their moments.  

 

For me the best part 

 

Spoiler

Zombie Dr Strange with the cloak of dead souls. What a frikkin' cool visual that was!!!!

Disney/Marvel's Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is having a crazy ride at the international box office, now at $139.3M through Friday and headed to $230M+ through Sunday overseas. The global total with Friday's domestic start included is already $229.3M. The sequel is looking to cast a $400M+ spell worldwide for the full weekend.

Current estimates have the first three days offshore at just 17% below Spider-Man: No Way Home, 180% ahead of The Batman and +207% above the first Doctor Strangeon a like-for-like basis.

International markets are holding fast and setting new records. Friday added five more hubs to take the total to 49. India debuted the Sam Raimi-directed pic at $4.3M for No. 1 and the fourth-highest Hollywood launch day of all time. Spain's No. 1 start of $2.5M is the best opening day of the pandemic and Turkey's $700K set a benchmark for the top opening Friday in history.

The power scaling has been messed up after this movie.

Not even sure what Dr. Strange can even do. All the others like Marvel, America etc etc are nerfed.
