No sorry dude I wasn't messing with you!!! I actually googled it and saw that it was indeed about a rogue shark, and I meant to come back in here and edit my post. But my partner served up dinner so I got sidetracked.
But yeah, you know how sometimes movie titles are misleading? Like ummm, trying to think of an example...Silence of the Lambs, Dances with Wolves, Reservoir Dogs, they aren't about animals AT ALL!!!! So yeah, sometimes ya gotta check....

Was thinking about watching through the Marvel films again because I've only seen them once and I was so high I can hardly remember them. So, I started with Doctor Strange.

I didn't like this much the first time I saw it. The only thing that stuck in my mind was Tilda Swinton with a shaved head. Now that I've seen it a second time, I realize this is because her performance is one of the only memorable things about the film.

Strange (like modern Christopher Nolan flicks) focuses too much on spectacle. The special effects are gratuitous. Too many kaleidoscope effects of buildings twisting around and collapsing into each other.

The humour is flatter and less frequent than most MCU films, which (in this case) is a bad thing. The Avengers films are too jokey for me, whereas Doctor Strange takes itself too seriously a lot of the time. It's such a ridiculous film. It needs to have a sense of humour about itself.

Because the world of Doctor Strange is so spectacular, there are no believable human reactions. It's like smoking DMT without the drugs, yet everybody just accepts it. An ethereal version of Strange appears above an operating table he is lying (unconscious) on. The doctor freaks out for a second. Then Strange says something like, "this is my Astral body"... and she continues to operate.

The film is absurd. There are a lot of opportunities for humour here.

There are also major plot holes. Strange can reverse time. He doesn't do this when The Ancient One (Swinton) dies. He waits till the end of the film. Why?

There appear to be very few limits to Strange's power. If he exists in the same world as The Avengers, he is more powerful than all of them... except Captain Marvel. This is one of the problems lumping all these heroes together.

On one side you've got Hawkeye, a guy who uses a bow and arrow. Then you've got Black Widow who looks sexy in a black leather jumpsuit. I don't know what she does. I think she likes to kick people or something.

If Strange can reverse time, he is way more powerful than Iron Man or the Hulk... and that's part of the problem with this film. The good guys can do whatever they want. The bad guys, also, can do whatever they want. There's a particular headache-inducing action scene in Strange that seems to go on forever. They are jumping from building to building as the city collapses on itself. It looks pretty, but I don't know what any of it means. There is so much going on, it's hard to keep track of who is doing what.

I like his cape, which is kind of like a mix between Aladdin's magic carpet (from the Disney cartoon) and Mario's hat - Cappy - from Mario Odyssey. They should have called it Capey.

I'm not a huge Marvel fan.

5/10
