Thursday night, I couldn’t quite restrain myself from running out to the multiplex to see Dr. Strange. I went in with mixed feelings. Sure, the trailers looked beyond cool, and Tilda Swinton seemed amazing. But I wasn’t sure about Cumberbatch. He’s got a great voice, but I prefer not to have to look at him while he’s using it. Still, even he looked strange enough to be a good Strange.

Like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man, I was trusting Fiege and the MCU not to let me down on this more offbeat offering. And they didn’t let me down.

Be warned: while there aren’t really big spoilers in “The Story At-A-Glance,” The Film” is full of them.

Dr. Strange brings magic to the Marvel universe. If you’re hesitant to splurge on IMAX 3D tickets, rest assured this film is worth the price of admission. Indeed, the visuals are so stunning, it would be crime to see them in a lesser format first.

Of course, make certain to stick around through the end of the credits, as there are two scenes (one in the credits, one after them) you don’t want to miss.

Trailers (that I remember): Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Great Wall, Power Rangers, Old Man Logan, Rogue One, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
