    Commenters, you can have fun watching a film and still be analytical. It is not a zero sum game.

    I understand Jame's boredom with the MCU formula.  These movies are made to be eaten up by the masses.  I say try to enjoy this movie like Lawrence and I enjoy the Fast Franchise.  The MCU is based off of a comic book, so FAST10 your seatbelt, and try not to read so much into it.


    Disclaimer: I can't help but do the same thing.

    Calling for TrippleX: The voice over in the trailer of Sam Jackson isn't praising Cage for being a badass, but he is actually the film's villain and is mocking him and his silly antics in a monologue near the film's climax.

    I thought that first credit scene was more them re-writing where they left Thor: The Dark World to set up Thor 3, hence the kind of exposition heavy stuff for a scene that's supposed to excite.

    Oh, in X-3, the end credit scene was Xavier sending his consciousness into his twin brother who was born brain dead, which I think one of the directors hinted was because Charles' developing mutation essentially 'stole' his brothers brainwaves in the womb. Wow, that was too much typing wasted on such a shit movie, I apologize.

    Doctor Strange was SO good.  I enjoyed the crap out of it.  It's one of two recent movies that have done magic gorgeously (the other one being Warcraft).  It would have been nice to know why the villain had to wait long so long to initiate his evil plan, long enough for Strange to get a chunk of magical learning.  Just one line would have explained it fine.  I hope to go back to see it!

    I thought this was the "Movie Podcast" which doesn't come out as MP3, so I watched the whole thing. When I say "watch" I mean the usual thing - I have it running in the background and I listen to it while doing a thousand different things, it's a podcast for God's sake, the video portion is maybe 2% of its content.

    Only after looking at the video list a few hours later did I notic that this was actually the new episode of Dude Soup.

    Fuck, now I have no podcasts to listen to on my way to work tomorrow. Damn you Funhaus!

    I find James funny and enjoy him in videos, but him and I have very different taste in movies. Which is fine, but I think that's the case for a lot of people.

    Totally with James on this one. I'm tired of movies treating us like morons, like we don't understand subtlety or can't read between the lines. I used to think that I shouldn't expect much of something based on a comic, but why not? It still deals with a lot of real emotional stuff and complex ideas.

    Maybe for once have deaths mean something. Make characters actually mourn instead of making cheap quips during standard boss fights the second after a main character gets "killed off" (only to be brought back in a spin-off or by some ridiculous magical means). Don't always go for the fairytale endings where the group of misfits or the former asshole learns their lesson and defeat the enemy with friendship. Don't make the villains into gods only for them to be destroyed by a goddamned flick of the finger. Give the characters actual flaws that don't just go away in the course of twenty minutes!

    Huff! I think I get upset over these things because I actually do like the Marvel movies, they just never live up to their potential. They're 100% eye-candy, but they could be so much more if the people in charge took comics as an artform seriously. Alright, I'm gonna stop now...

      From the tail end.

      Lawrence: (sarcasm) ... and sorry about James, he's a salty asshole.

      James: It would've been a boring conversation if we just talked about how great it was the whole time. I picked out the one thing I didn't like which was how they made it both an action movie and a morality tangent.

      Lawrence: Sometimes on the Podcast we take contradictory viewpoints for the sake of conversation, but don't let that stop you from telling James that he's a dickwad.

    I understand and respect what James is saying, but for me that is what allowed me to really enjoy Dr Strange, i was able to forget about the outside world and just turn my brain off and enjoy the amazing visual effects and acting without having to pay attention to the story because i already new what was going to happen. I think Dr Strange was never meant to push the boat out in terms of story telling, it's just a plain ol' origin story, showing a somewhat unknown character to the public. And i don't think a different story (like Guardians of the Galaxy) would have worked very well for a character like Dr Strange, because he is only one character, there isn't a crew dynamic to insert different roles to change the story. 

    I was excited for Dr Strange before going to see it and i happy with the result.

    As someone with ''Marvel fatigue'', I didn't have any good expectations when I went to see Dr. Strange. Lately Marvel movies have been such a bore for me and I was pleasantly surprised as I actually liked Dr. Strange.

    I really wish people could just be okay with the fact people have different opinions on a movie and not just try to change other peoples opinions.. "I don't like this move." -Person A. "Here's all of the reasons I like this movie and you should like it because of these things!" - almost every other person apparently.. I get wanting other people to like things you enjoy but I don't understand why people are so determined to do so. It's an opinion, everyone has one and it really doesn't negatively impact you.. Sorry for the ramble here guys, hope everyone enjoyed the podcast as much as I did or even more!

      The most annoying thing is when you like a certain film and then someone else comes in with "This is a shit film and here is a video explaining why!" Either have a conversation with me about why you don't like the film or don't bother at all. I think the current age of information has truly made film discussion on the internet very toxic, that allows little room for actual film discussion. It's basically I am right and you are wrong discussions, without seeing it from the other person's perspective.

    I only go to superhero movies because of my friends, After Avengers almost everything was less than that and have not impress me much. I am just really happy that the Oscars movies approach with better movie choices (though horror movies were really good this summer). I see where james is going but at the end of the day, everyone is going to watch Spiderman or GotG2. Also television has had a huge rise and I love every moment of sharing accounts with others to see them all.

    I personally liked Dr Strange simply because of Cumberbatch's casting, LSD imagery during his first meeting with the Ancient One, and fuckin' magic, bruh. I do agree that it wasn't a change of pace in superhero movies, though.

    don't normally agree with James about his take on marvel movies but Dr Strange didn't really push the marvel MOVIE series narrative forward. The movie was too predictive.

      Dr. Strange as a film, besides setting up the character himself, who is likely to become massively important in Infinity War (as pointed out, his power is on the 'cosmic' level, something few other heroes can claim - additionally he controls the Time Gem) also explores some really interesting philosophical theories. Three in particular were brought to my attention (by my girlfriend, I'm not a philosophy major): the theory of dualism - that is, that there are non-physical properties in the world; modal concrete realism - that is, the multiverse theory; and the dropping branch theory of time - that as we 'move' through time, choices that could have been taken 'fall away', and a single trunk of the past remains (this is as opposed to eternalism). These theories are still viable philosophical viewpoints, and while the film takes some liberties in their explanation (philosophically, you shouldn't be able to travel to another universe, or interact with the non-physical properties of our world), it made these general ideas pretty easily palatable to a wide audience. It didn't inherently present them as philosophical ideas, but the film was built around them. I think that's a pretty impressive thing to do with a mass-marketed superhero film, and it was a way in which it differs drastically from other Marvel origin stories.


      I'm not denying that plot-wise it hit many familiar points, and there are other complaints people have that I'm sure are reasonable. But it still did something different which I think is worth noting.
