Marvel Movies & TV General Discussion


#2219

Doctor Strange might be worth watching too.


#2220

Yup. There is a funny callback to the first Avengers too.

This one I will put under spoiler warning, not that it spoils the story at all but I forget how well known this bit is.

Doctor Strange is in it for about 5 minutes. It’s not particularly necessary to have seen the film, it’s fine that he’s just some wizard guy but you may want to put that one in over Civil War or Cap 2 that have no bearing at all.


#2221

Oh! Right! I forgot he was in one of the trailers! Okay, that’s another one then.

Hm. Might be a few weeks until I can see Ragnarok…


#2222

Yeah, he just needs to watch Cap 2 before Avengers 2 or the Hydra surprise will be spoiled.

So many things to think of!!!


#2223

I don’t want to spoil anything, but I’ll just say I don’t think Dr. Strange is remotely required viewing to prepare for Thor Ragtag Band.


#2224

To be honest, I don’t think any of this is required, as such. But now that he’s into comics, the little guy is turning into something of a completist :slight_smile:


#2225

Lol. Well if you haven’t watched Strange with him yet, then why not anyway, right? The visuals are pretty great and the prog lite soundtrack is pretty fun, too!


#2226

If you’re wanting to have fun, then I say skip Doctor Strange entirely.


#2227

Yeah, I’ll be happy to finally watch it myself, definitely.

Now there’s mixing the signals!

I suspect I’ll be fine. Got a pretty high tolerance for those Marvel movies, and at least Strange will have some interesting visuals, even if it shouldn’t work for me on other levels.


#2228

The visuals are overblown.

I’m merely thinking about the kid’s time here.


#2229

Heh. Lots of it works fine. For most people.

I’m sure there’s a thread for of opinions around here somewhere anyway.


#2230

Tom doesn’t like it, which is perfectly his right, but it’s generally another well received fun Marvel film.

I know you love your Metacritic Christian, Doctor Strange is a 72.


#2231

Yeah, and with the “thinking of the kid’s time” addendum there I was trying to skew it a bit there.

Not trying to be particularly combative here.


#2232

:joy: Haven’t you got a Christmas you need to get ready to steal, Tom? :wink:


#2233

I’d say watching Dr. Strange right before seeing Ragnarok would make the experience of viewing both a little better, one practically leads into the other.


#2234

Eh if I was a kid, Doctor Strange would BLOW MY MIND with those visuals… just saying… =P


#2235

I know someone’s gonna wanna weigh in on this one.


#2236

I think we all agree that Lundgren’s Punisher was brilliant.


#2237

Lundgren’s wasn’t brilliant but Entertaining would probably be a good description.

War Zone on the other hand was… not good.


#2238

I liked War Zone just fine… nothing special, but it was ok… Much better than Lundgren and Jane at any rate… Oh I remember I REALLY liked Jigsaw though, especially how they did his makeup.
