I have seen that Doc Strange movie several times and it is OK but just OK. Compared to the cirlbae of superhero movies fans could expect back in the day, it was a masterpiece, though. Did you ever see that Aquaman pilot? I think it was actually a student film, so in that context, well done. But for years I thought it was an official pilot, and I had nightmares.With the kinds of comic book inspired movies we are getting now Iron Man, Batman and just how fantastic they are, wouldn't you love to see Doc Strange get the same treatment? Top of the line script, special effects, the whole enchilada? Man! I salivate just thinking about it.I realized a long time ago that even when I disagree with Spurgeon, I respect his opinion and his presentation.I enjoy Heidi's site, but yeah, some of the comments are just too funky. Oh well, we can always just scroll.
