4:17 Seems lazy to use magic on your tie when you still have to make the same moves just in the air.
6:40 The hair. Can we talk about the hair?
9:01 Leaping into action when someone screams in his red cape is a bit Superman.
12:00 I love that Wong is the Sorcerer Supreme.
14:18 “That wasn’t a dream, that was another universe.” I knew it.
20:26 Ooh, first time TV shows mentioned in the movies.
22:30 The Darkhold!
29:33 “This is Me. Being. Reasonable.”
39:35 City of greenery is amazing.
51:45 If she can do the dream thing why does she need Chavez?
54:44 I thought the Darkhold was really indestructible. In Agents of Shield they had to give it to GhostRider to dispose of.
57:58 Multiversal research sounds terribly complicated.
1:05:25 The Illuminati has blown my mind. Captain Carter. Krasinski. PROFESSOR???
1:11:35 Sort of love that Wanda’s just trashing the universe in bare feet.
1:13:33 Three amazing women fighting each other… I’m here for this.
1:14:01 “I could do this all day. "
1:31:21 You don’t know that your childhood story actually happened in this universe, of course.
1:42:59 “Dreamwalking, you hypocrite.”


This just feels like a hot mess of a movie. Doctor Strange has always been about the weird visuals, with his mirror dimension and all, but there’s so much of that in here, you barely know whether you’re coming or going. The horror elements seemed ramped up - some pretty gruesome deaths in quite graphic detail, alongside moments of serial killer, zombies, it felt like there was barely an original idea in the piece.

I didn’t like it. But I didn’t hate it. Every time I came up with a question or a flaw, they answered it, and it wasn’t dull. Having lived through Eternals, I’m just grateful for that.
