Prepare to have your mind blown. Not only is Marvel's Doctor Strange
a critically-acclaimed hit ($325 million at the global box office in 13 days, 90% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes, and a rarely bestowed "A" Cinemascore from opening day audiences), but it's a sumptuous visual feast worthy of two films it invokes, The Matrix
