Doctor Strange takes the very familiar story line of foolish pride, followed by the inevitable action that brings his success to a sad end, that you don't have to know the Dr. Strange comics to be able to figure out. However, this film provides enough mind-bending effects, humor, and good acting to keep this movie fresh in a time of formulaic, "tried and true" superhero movies.
With October 31 lurking just around the corner, it is now time to prepare for my favorite holiday. Although decorating houses, carving pumpkins, following people around at night dressed like a clown and choosing which candy to give out are all fun, the best activity is a Halloween movie marathon.
