*raises hand* I was one of those people. Now, I look on IMDB during the credits to see if there's another scene, if they don't list one, I leave! (Go to that movie's page on imdb then go down to Crazy Credits.)

I've read that the director is actually a Christian, which is interesting. Obviously he had to work with the source material, which includes a lot of mystical nonsense (and might have prompted him to cast the Ancient One as non-Asian, so as not to be too stereotypical). Funny--the Wikipedia article says the early Dr. Strange comics were so strange that some people thought the writers must be on drugs! But the movie raises some pretty interesting questions about good and evil. Kaecilius's defection actually makes sense, and so does Mordo's falling away at the end. Some of the issues reminded me of Plato's whole Noble Lie concept. At least in superhero movies, the Noble Lie usually seems to backfire.

That's very interesting. And I have noticed the Noble Lie backfiring in superhero films.

I'm hoping that now it's 2017, that the rights to the Fantastic Four will go back to Marvel, and that we'll end up seeing them join the MCU.

It's one of the funniest films in the MCU right now. Guardians was I guess funny, but I didn't really find it all that entertaining. Maybe the 2nd one will be better (I honestly didn't like the first one!).

Yes, "Ant-Man" was humorous, and the humor carried over to the character's appearance in "Captain America/Civil War," where it served to lighten up what was really a VERY sad story.

I have a special excuse for double-posting. I just wrote a Captain America story -- which is also a call for SOME LOGIC in movie plots, as you'll see.

I just saw "Logan". I would not recommend it if you're squeamish at all.

The ending was so beautiful, though. And Laura was absolutely adorable.
