Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ★★★½

Pardon my Marvel-brained blockbuster side for a second but I enjoyed the utter heck out of this thing. Pretty much every moment of Multiverse of Madness is an absolute blast. Campy, crazy, lively, and strange (c’mon I had to), the sequel to, in my opinion, one of Marvel’s most forgettable projects certainly makes a mark in my mind. 

Sam Raimi’s direction doesn’t fully work with the studio’s usual shtick, but he does infuse this with a style that can’t be missed. I hesitate to call this the best directed movie in the franchise, but I definitely found it to be one of its most visually creative. Rarely does this ever feel bland. The camera kinda goes nuts sometimes. The horror aspects of the story aren’t effective, but they sure are entertaining, and the action is pretty enjoyable as well. I wouldn’t call it mind-blowing or anything, despite what certain scenes may possess, but many of my fears were subverted and my joy rarely disappeared. 

The multiverse is Marvel’s playground, and I am here for it.
