Dr. Strange (2016)
Strange never grows much as a character but Cumberbatch appears to haveconsiderable fun with the role. I couldn't get past the fact that “Doctor Strange” is essentially the story of a white man who travels to an Asian land, whose culture and people he doesn’t quite get yet somehow he manages to realize he’s a natural at magic, with occasional flashes of humor. Like when he points out that really, the downside of the spell should come at the beginning with a warning, rather than after you have tried it. Bring on the special effects, world saved, come back for more later.
