Anybody see Dr. Strange yet? I saw it today, and while it was technically a great movie...the New Age and Eastern mysticisms turned me off, even though I did like the movie. Thoughts?

(The end credit scene with a certain Avenger was pretty awesome though...)

Not yet, but I really want to see the movie.

How does he manage to pull it off? And I guess it's still very rare for Iron Man to beat him.

Well, no. It's a comic book, so Iron Man beats him every time. It's different every time, too.

Is there anything I should know about Doctor Strange before I see the movie?

Yes. a) wait until the very end of the credits before you leave the theater or turn off your dvd player. There are 2 post-credits scenes, one near the beginning and one at the very very end. Worth waiting for, as I feel like the very end one especially may set up a future Marvel film (which one, I have no idea. Nothing in Marvel is arbitrary though). b) as I said before, there's a LOT of New Age and Eastern mysticism. It made me roll my eyes throughout most of the movie. And honestly, the villains are kinda freaky. I guess you can say that about most Marvel movie villains, but these are disturbingly freaky, IMHO. That said, it's still a good movie. Just not one I'll watch more than once or twice, probably.

So there was another post-credit scene. The people I went to see the movie with said there was only one.

In most cases they now have two of those epilogues.

Age of Ultron didn't, though. So, I sat through 8 minutes of credits for nothing.

Anyway, the first Doctor Strange stinger was for Thor:Ragnarok, and the second was a sequel hook for a second Doctor Strange movie with Baron Mordo as the villain.

So, I remember some people wanted to discuss Doctor Doom. I remember reading somewhere that Doctor Doom doesn't see himself as evil, but as the solution to all life's problems, and that he honestly believes that he can solve everything. I also get that he's got a very big ego and to him the ends justify the means.
