*SPOILER*  Will I Watch it Again - Nooooooooooooooooo!

I went to Dr Strange with loads of expectation! And I must say that my friends and me were disappointed.

With Benedict and such awesome crew the movie could have been so so much better. I would not watch this movie again and I would not recommend it to anyone for a one time watch as well.
