While I love the cast and premise, it isn't a very well written story. The dialogue was really good at times, but structurally, the story buckled under its own weight.

Nocturnal Animals

Intense, cold, brutal, cruel, perfectly filmed, acted and strong dialogue. While I know this is based on the novel, "Tony and Susan," I'm shocked Tom Ford, more known for fashion design, is able to channel his creative side so well into film-making. The screenplay he writes is very strong. The tension I felt throughout most of the film is the most I've truly felt during a movie in years.

Doctor Strange

I'm not sure if the sheer volume of comic book movies has gotten to me or if I'm becoming more critical of the seemingly watered-down collective product. At my most optimistic, making a high-budget blockbuster film based on a D-level Marvel character could not have been done much better. "Doctor Strange" had to be an original story too, so the level of adventure was going to be limited by the requirement to explain how he became Doctor Strange. Benedict Cumberbatch is a perfect Doc. The action scenes are top notch and had me thinking what a great movie the Wachowskis could have made with this subject matter. And knowing where the integration of Doc in the Marvel Universe will be going, I am excited for future encounters with him. That being said, this movie isn't particularly great. It has an unusually high satisfaction rating, which makes me think Marvel has controlled their brand so well, they simply cannot do any wrong. Doctor Strange is the worst Marvel Studios has made thus far. That is how high the bar is. It wasn't an awful movie, but it was average, which is what we have not come to expect from Mighty Marvel. It's not Suicide Squad bad, but it is as good as it could have been.
