‘Doctor Strange’ Brings the Magic

Marvel’s Doctor Strange is exactly the kind of superhero movie we all wanted to see back when the ads were promising that we would “believe a man can fly.” The mystic warriors here do a lot more than fly, and it’s all visually stunning. Much more important than the eye candy, however, are the personalities involved, their histories and motivations, and the importance of what they are all fighting for or against. If those things don’t engage us, the amazing effects are just a digital fireworks display.

‘Doctor Strange’ Cast Speaks

The cast of Marvel’s Doctor Strange assembled at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills to discuss the film. Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, and Benedict Wong, producer Kevin Feige and director Scott Derrickson, were interviewed by Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz and took questions from the audience.

Munch Week. It’s a Thing.

It’s Halloween today, but instead, I’m going to talk about another October holiday, one that means as much to me as Halloween, because it’s one that I invented: Munch Week.

Munch Week is the week where we celebrate the character of John Munch and all that he has done for us. John Munch, in case you don’t know, is the character played by the great Richard Belzer on Homicide: Life On The Street and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for an unbroken run of 22 consecutive seasons. He’s also TV’s crossover king.
