5. Doctor Strange
Just when you thought origin stories were getting stale and repetitive, Doctor Strange kicked down the door and changed the game. I was expecting a boring repeat of Iron Man. A rich privileged white guy goes to Asia and comes back with a super weapon. I mean, that’s exactly what happened but like, there were technicolors and shit.
I love that the final act wasn’t Stephen Strange vs. generic magic beings or whatever. He outsmarted Dormammu by getting murdered over and over again for the rest of eternity. Spoilers? This movie is so good that I just completely ignored the white washing. What an accomplishment.
