Movie Review: Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ Starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange
Directors: Scott Derrickson
Screenwriters: Scott Derrickson, Jon Spaihts, C. Robert Cargill
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release Date: November 4, 2016

Marvel Studios has a reputation for raising the superhero movie bar higher and higher with each and every new release. There has been a total of 14 films since they kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man way back in 2008, but Doctor Strange will be the first to venture into the psychedelic world of mysticism. The Scott Derrickson-directed film pays homage to Steve Dikto’s creation by filling the screen with mystical landscapes, M.C. Escher-like bends, and psychedelic visuals that will make even the casual fans cheer. While it is visually stunning in more ways than you can count, Doctor Strange does have a few narrative and pacing flaws. But it is not enough to hurt the overall enjoyment of the movie, as it just retreads familiar territory but with stunning psychedelic visuals. Check out the full review below.

‘Godzilla 2’ Co-Writer Michael Dougherty Rumored To Be In Line To Also Direct


It was recently announced that Legendary Pictures had hired Krampus screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields to replace Max Borenstein on writing duties for the upcoming Godzilla 2.

This move was reportedly part of Legendary’s strategy to establish a creative brain trust that will chart the giant monster shared universe they have been developing at Warner Bros., with next March’s Kong: Skull Island set to be the next step in bringing the two iconic beasts together in a Godzilla vs. King Kong feature presently penciled in for a 2020 release.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

It was nearly 7 months ago when we got the Season 6 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and it was an excruciatingly long wait, considering that we were left with a cliffhanger of terrifying proportions. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was introduced as the villainous Negan, a leather jacket-clad, well-spoken madman who wields a barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat named Lucille that he uses to bash people’s heads in. Rick and his crew had run afoul with Negan’s soldiers after they raided what they thought was his main compound in a preemptive attack. Turns out, that was just an outpost.

Meanwhile, Morgan was off looking for Carol, who left the Alexandria Safe Zone because she couldn’t bare to kill anymore, even though she was obviously very good at it. He eventually found her hiding and injured, but she refused to return with him. Instead, she ran off again only to be found by one of the Saviors from the group she slaughtered (in her defense, they attacked her first), who then shoots her. Thankfully, it was Morgan to the rescue again. Right after Morgan kills the attacking Savior, two other men wearing homemade armor arrive, one of whom is on horseback. Morgan tells them that Carol is injured and needs help, and one of the men say, “Then let’s get you some help” and shakes Morgan’s hand — a symbol of hope in this desperate world.

The Exorcist at FEARnyc

FEARnyc is the destination for horror fans in New York as we get closer to Halloween. The film festival, put together by director John Capo, is showing over 65 horror movies through Thursday, including world premiere originals and timeless classics. FEARnyc emanates from Cinema Village, located near NYC’s Union Square. On Saturday, I arrived at 4:45 pm and took in an awesome four-film marathon that included the world premiere of Pool Party Massacre, as well as classics The Lost Boys, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, and 1973’s The Exorcist, the latter of which included a seance.

FEARnyc 2016 Interview: ‘Don’t F*ck in the Woods’: Shawn Burkett & Chris Gierowski

FEARnyc premiere - Don't Fuck In The Woods banner

Last night was the first night of the FEARnyc film festival in New York City, and along with screening several classic and new horror films, it also hosted the world premiere of Shawn Burkett’s Don’t Fuck in the Woods.

The vulgarly, but appropriately titled 90-minute film is like Slumber Party Massacre meets Creature from the Black Lagoon, and is definitely an homage to the creature-feature and 80s slasher subgenres.

After the premiere at Cinema Village theater at NYC’s Greenwich Village, fans took part in a Q&A with the film’s writer-director Shawn Burkett, stars Nadia White and Brittany Blanton, and producer Chris Gierowski. Earlier in the day, I had the chance to sit down with Shawn Burkett and Chris Gierowski to talk about the film, as well as a puppet horror-comedy film called Head that Gierowski worked on that’s also playing at FEARnyc this week.

Scream Queens
Episode 2.4 “Halloween Blues”

Directed by Loni Peristere
Starring Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Kirstie Alley, Niecy Nash, Lea Michele, Taylor Lautner, John Stamos
Air Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Sorry this is late, but Tuesday night was Amy Schumer at Madison Square Garden in NYC… but here’s what’s happening on Scream Queens. My poor sweet Chad Radwell (Glen Powell) is dead. I have not, and will not recover. His body fell Suspiria-style through the stained glass ceiling at his supposed wedding to Chanel (Emma Roberts). The CURE Institute has been shockingly successful at finding cures for bizarre ailments, while at the same time being horrible at keeping its patients alive post-cure. The Green Meanie continues to wreak have on the hospital now run by Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis). Thirty years ago on Halloween night, a patient was ignored and died thanks to the staff who then dumped his body in the swamp. Now, in order to try to lure the killer out, the current gang are having their own hospital Halloween party.

‘Deadpool’ Director Tim Miller Quits Sequel Over Creative Differences With Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool header photo

Deadpool director Tim Miller has exited the production of the sequel, obviously titled Deadpool 2 (for now), over creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds, according to Mike Fleming Jr. at Deadline. Miller had not formally signed on to direct the sequel to this year’s surprise comic book action-comedy blockbuster (which grossed $760 million worldwide) when he decided to step down.

This news comes just two days after it was reported that Miller was looking at several prominent actresses for the role of the mutant assassin Domino, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Swiss Army Man), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service). Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) remains one of the top contenders to play the fan-favorite mutant antihero Cable.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Aliens Lens Comes To Snapchat

This year movie fans around the world celebrate the 30th anniversary of director James Cameron’s blockbuster sequel, Aliens. The movie is the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 original, Alien, and was released in July of 1986. Costing a little under $20 million to make, it would go on to bring in over $131 million worldwide at the box office.

To help celebrate the anniversary, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has launched a special Aliens lens for Snapchat users to enjoy. With it, you can turn yourself into a feared Xenomorph, or you can even get your very own facehugger to latch on to your skull. Adorable little guys, really. Misunderstood.
