We saw "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" last night very late, 11:15pm Show. Everything else was sold out.
Overall, we enjoyed, lot of cameo's referencing various characters from the comics (Barry will have to give us some insight on those) and the special effects were incredible. Although, the only negative that I would say is that the level of violence was a bit too much and some scenes not good for young kids to see.

P.S. Stay for the post credits.

I just saw Dr. Strange at my Dolby Theater. I give it a “good” rating, it was fun to watch with amazing special effects and a lot of them.  The plot was a bit thin, but with everything happening who cares? It did, on occasion, have the fell of a B movie.

Dr. Strange was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, in 1963 the same pair that created Spider-Man. He was originally a “filler” but grew to have a series of his own comics.  I always thought that Dr. Strange was the most powerful hero in the Marvel Universe.

Stan Lee 1962: Well, we have a new character in the works for Strange Tales,  just 5 page filler named Doctor Strange. Steve Ditko is gonna draw him. It has sort of a black magic theme. The first story is nothing great, but perhaps we can make something of him. T’was Steve ‘s idea, I figured we’d give it a chance, although again we had to rush the first one too much. Originally, we had decided to call him Mr. Strange, but thought the “Mr” was a little too similar to “Mr. Fantastic.”

An interesting component of the movie is the search for the book of Darkhold, which is a book of magical spells.  It has many functions in the Marvel Universe but to me the most important was the Montesi Formula:  The Monk Montesi studies the book of Darkhold and develops an incantation that can destroy a vampire. It will be known in the Marvel Universe as the Montesi Formula.
“HOLD ERASM A RABIS KATERAMA LUCEM DEI PARADOXIS SATANNICUS BELGREM.”

Dr. Strange would use this formula to kill DRACULA once and for all!  See Death Certificate.



Spoiler Alert:
In one of the dimensions Dr. Strange meets the Illuminati, an idea which was taken from the comics.  They are Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell) who was in Marvel’s recent What If Series as well as the Captain America Movie and Agent Carter on TV; Black Bolt, (Anson Mount) from Marvel’s Inhuman’s TV show; Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch )who was in the movie, but not yet the Captain Marvel; Mr. Fantastic( John Krasinski) of the Fantastic Four, but not either of the actors who played him in the Fox movies and Prof. X, once again played by Patrick Stewart.

She is a wonderful actress and I’m sure I will do a very good job. But to me there are two interesting things here. Stars like her used to run away from movies like this and now they’re running to them. Second it’s nice to see that you don’t have to be 25 years old to play an attractive girlfriend.
