Episode #270: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

May 11, 2022

Happy Wednesday boys and girls! Today Mike and Matt review their first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of 2022 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Not MCU topics include Dirty Dancing, future giveaways, and Wired’s Autocomplete Interviews.

Two multiverse films in 3 weeks? Wow what are the chances, well in 2022 very good. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of iconic Marvel and horror film director Sam Raimi to the superhero genre, it was a perfect fit. This film is dark, sinister, and kinda gory. It is the first somewhat horror film for the MCU. Elizabeth Olson steals the show with her portrayal of Scarlet Witch. Benedict Cumberbatch delivers again as Doctor Strange but Wanda is just amazing! 

This film was a lot of fun but it was not as insane or mad as it should be. Raimi could really stretch out and get nuts with this film but he doesn’t. Matt blames Disney oversight for not letting him stretch his creative muscles. Mike and Matt both agree the first 2022 MCU entry is a fun, dark, and exciting ride that’s worth a watch. They both award Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness 4 out of 5 Reels.

For next week’s podcast Mike picked a Stephen King horror movie remake Firestarter starring Zac Efron and Ryan Kiera Armstrong. Thanks for listening and reading to the end of our show notes. Chat at you next week!
