Last Sunday, I reviewed Doctor Mordrid, an early 1990s B-movie where the scriptwriters lost the rights to Doctor Strange and tried to rewrite the film to get around this, resulting in a somewhat odd but enjoyable movie that was heavily reminiscent of Doctor Strange but without being legally close enough for lawyer-fu to take place. So… Continue reading strange delights
