Movie Review: Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Take a storyline premise that is decidedly Nolan-esque in the sheer complexity of its multiverse yada yada.
Construct a grand cinematic architecture with stunning mindbending visuals that could only have been dreamt of if Salvador Dali and Tim Burton had spent a weekend together binging on halucigenic drugs.
Deploy the creative genius of Danny Elfman to orchestrate a musical score that aurally elevates the visually stunning fight scene where, perhaps for the first time in cinema history, musical notes are pulled off of music sheets flying in slow-mo and mystically weaponised.
Unleash Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliantly nuanced performances of Dr. Strange across multiverses paired against Elizabeth Olsen's Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde-ish Wanda/Scarlet Witch.
Deliver these sacred ingredients to the wizardry of Director, Sam Raimi, then sit back and watch him conjure a 2 hour plus smorgasbord of stunning and surreal movie magic that is the visually halucigenic and mentally mindbending Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. 8.5/10
