I rarely go see a movie at a theater. I don’t like the high prices for the tickets or the food. I don’t like the uncomfortable seats that turns your butt numb in 20 minutes or less. I don’t like that you always get someone in the crowd that has to be as loud as possible from 10 minutes before movie time until three minutes after the end of the credits.
I prefer to wait a few months for the DVD release (I’m not a fan of Blu-Ray either, sorry) where I can sit on my comfortable couch, eat my favorite – and very affordable – food and enjoy the film in peace.
So last night we brought home Doctor Strange. The movie has been reviewed nearly to the last frame so this is not going to be a review post. But as we were watching this very solid entry into the Marvel Universe, I realized once again that DC is getting its clock completely cleaned by Marvel in the film adaptation department.
Which is a shame because my favorite comic book superheroes are mostly from DC. Batman was an early favorite as was Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Green Arrow. I always thought Superman was just a little too goody-two-shoes for my taste.In my early years of comic reading
In my early years of comic reading, I never got into Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk and the others in the Marvel section of the local drugstore’s comic book rack. So for me, the Marvel movies have been a great introduction and I’ve actually gotten more into the characters with each new film. And each new film has been just as good, if not a little better, than the last one.
So it has been very sad to watch DC blunder through
