    Went to see it last night as Dr. Strange was my favorite comic as a kid. Very good special effects. The actor who play Kubla Kahn in the Marco Polo series on Netflix has a featured role as a sorcerer ally if Dr. Strange. Tilda Swinton was an interesting choice to play The Ancient One. Rachel McAdams as Strange's love interest worked well.
    Interesting point about last night's screening. Some of those in the audience must be newbies to the Marvel cinematic universe. Many left as the credits started to roll. More left after the first preview (1 minute into the credits.) Only a handful (myself included) stayed for the second preview, which was the more important of the two for the story line going forward, as a 2nd Dr. Strange movie is planned.

    3-d wasn't available in Southington & in Plainville 3-D was showing at an inconvenient time.
    I liked it. Story line was okay. Loved the special effects. Could see where they would be spectacular in 3-D.

    Looking forward to seeing it. Really like the Marvel movies and Benedict Cumberbatch is a terrific actor. If you haven't seen "Sherlock" you should watch those on Netflix. Really well done.

    I can't watch 3D without getting dizzy. I had to walk out and wait for the non 3D version. For those who can watch 3D, the special effects must be mind blowing.

    So are you a Marvel movie guy? Is this just another hero pict, or something more interesting.

    Not necessarily Marvel, but I love the genre.

    I did see the non 3D version. Agreed. Really good movie. I've never watched Sherlock, so this is the first I've seen of Benedict Cumberbatch. He was perfect for the role.

    He really was. Great movie. I really like how they are tying the Marvel universe together.

    As for 3D, I use the closed caption glasses so assumed I should avoid 3D, but the lady at the theater said they had 3D things that go over the CC glasses. I still like 2D better in most cases.
