Have you ever gone back to your old elementary school? Taken a moment to walk down the halls and reflect on your memories of the place compared to what the reality is?  That’s kind of like what watching Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast is like.  It’s almost exactly what

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the amazing run director Denis Villeneuve is on. He showed the world that Jake Gyllenhaal can go dark with Prisoners and Enemy, Sicario was one of the best films of 2015 and next year, Villeneuve has the long-awaited Blade Runner sequel hitting theaters.

With more than a handful of films under their belt (and more in the way), you would think you have seen everything from Marvel Studios, and yet they found a way to cure our superhero-film-numbness with Dr. Strange. Even when following a heroe’s-journey-paint-by-numbers formula, boy, do they know how to

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing episode three of season three of The Avengers.  This episode was titled Doctor Strange.  It was directed by Scott Derrickson and written by Jon Spaiths, Derrickson, and C. Robert Cargill. I want to make it clear up front that my quasi-facetious comparison
