Doctor Strange gives us a new superhero from the Marvel universe.  A neurosurgeon, after losing his hands in a traffic accident (note: it’s really bad to look at your smartphone while driving), goes to Nepal to learn mystic powers in the hope of healing his hands.  Then he fights evil sorcerers and a demonic being from another dimension.

Three things stand out – impressive CG that pushes Inception (2010) style visuals to the extreme, a lot of good jokes, and an ego that rivals Tony Stark’s.  Although the climactic battle is more like a trick than an exciting battle, this is the one of the most entertaining superhero movies in 2016.
