Just got back from seeing it with the kiddo.  Both loved it.  Nice tight self contained story from beginning to end.  The special effects were awe inspiring (we saw it in 3D).

It didn't derail Winter Soldier as my favorite Marvel movie but I really enjoyed it and look forward to the sequel.

Damn, forgot all about this thread.  Grin

About a week ago I did go see this (It's never a question about going to the theater when it comes to Marvel Movies, Cow  Wink) and I enjoyed it. Not in my top 5, as it is another Marvel movie with copy and paste storytelling, but still an enjoyable movie. Lots of cool Easter Eggs.

They best part was the way they made the Dark Dimension look like a page from Ditko's own panels. The saddest part was, while they got the essence of the look of Dormmamu down with his "pumpkin line" head, they really whiffed on the overall look of him. I think he needed more "fiery bad ass" look, not the colorful "over-large, plasma" look. But hey, it was still cool. I also wish there would have been more spoken spells. Maybe not the cheesy stuff us fans know, but they the almost put more of an emphasis on magical items more than the spoken spells which I was a little sad about.

I had a few more minor issues, like I wish they
made the Mindless Ones a little more bulky
, and I could probably list a few more, but I don't want to seem like I didn't have a good time. I did. Yep, enjoyable for sure. I liked it, but not close to either Cap movie or Thor or the first Iron Man or ...  Smiley I think it was more along the lines of Ant-Man, and that is totally fine.
