    Well, Amazon needs to get their stuff together. They're only screwing their customers.

    Rewatched this. The visuals are definitely amazing. But the story was serviceable at best.

    I swear this movie is influenced by the time gem, it goes by so quickly. Wish we had 20-30 minutes more.

    Other than what's in the film, are there any detailed pics of the Book of Cagliostro? I have a couple, one from the Movie book, the Steel book, but nothing of the clasp or binding/spine of the book

    Yeah, I really wish the Magical training parts were a bit more detailed or dated. The only way you were aware time passed was the color of what Strange was wearing. First Gray, then Purple, and finally blue. It seems like the only part of the film that shows time passed, and if you weren't AWARE that the color meant a level of magic they reached, you would have simply dismissed it as a change of clothes

    The tree in the inner courtyard was supposed to serve that purpose I think. You can see the season changing there from scene to scene. He had to have been there for the better part of year.

    Again tho, if you weren't AWARE of the colors in his clothes, you probably weren't aware of the trees lol there needed to be something else, even more spoken.

    Yeah Bren, it was quite awhile he was studying even WITH his photographic memory.
    The times you DO hear mentions of passing time were so minimal or Slight you wouldn't have noticed.

    has it ever been confirmed WHEN this movie takes place? clearly lots of time passes between his accident and when he returns to New York

    The Avengers Tower is shown, so it's post Avengers...

    They talk about a Colonel getting his back broken in experimental armor... One would assume that's Rhodey after Civil War.. but that doesn't really add up either.. 1 i assume it's common knowledge Rhodey is War Machine (So why not state it) and 2... his armor is not "expiramental" id feel WarMachine is far more known that the description gave.

    It also can't be during Iron Man 2 with Hammer tech trying to copy the ironman armor.. for that was prior to Avengers...

    is it possible it's just a throw away reference to let us know the military is still trying to duplicate the armor? or is it really Rhodes? because... wow.. they definitely spead up the timeline a little bit.

    Director confirmed in a Facebook chat that the movie starts in 2016 (there's also the award on his shelf that has a 2016 year on it - though I acknowledge that set props are not always accurate (see Bucky's Smithsonian exibit and it's two birth years listed as an example)). But seeing as the director backed it up that it takes place in 2016....

    It's been said in a few places that the film spans roughly a years worth of time (so by the end of the film it's late 2016/early 2017) -some of this is seen via the tree in Kamar Taj's courtyard (it goes from spring blossoms when he's in his white novice clothes, to fall colors when he's advanced to the red robes).

    It's also been confirmed that the Col. with the broken back is NOT Rhodey.

    The unnamed Col. is just some unnamed Col. (and ever since IM2 others have continued to create experimental armors, Strucker/HYDRA was using experimental armors in Age of Ultron using Chitauri tech in that opening scene, there's been experimental armors/tech on Agents of SHIELD, Luke Cage indicated that Hammer tech was *still* creating experimental armors well after Hammer was arrested)

    The movie has ended its domestic run with a total of $232 million dollars.

    Blu-ray was finally released here last friday. I gotta say, I think that Scott Derrickon's commentary was really interesting and honest. I hope he comes back for the sequel. He seems to be passionate and talented.

    I would have thought it started a little earlier than 2016 because he was mentioned as a threat to Hydra much earlier (TWS) so I figured that was AFTER his car wreck and after, at least, the start of his training as a sorcerer. A talented, self indulgent doctor doesn't strike me as much of a threat to HYDRA.

    Remember, the algorithm was using people's past to predict their future. Their algorithm also put some high school kid from Iowa onto their threat watch. Before Cap got the final blade into the Insight Carrier, they were targeting (if I remember correctly) 700,000+ people and that was just in the North Eastern area of the U.S. (New York, Washington D.C.).

    It's been confirmed by the Powers That Be that it was his exceptional skills as a surgeon that put him on HYDRA's threat list (I opt to think of it along the lines that his skills could put him at the forefront of being able to save the lives of key enemies of HYDRA)

    Its also, IMO, the biggest worldbuilding mistake in the movie. There was no *need* for it to be set in 2016, and it would have been trivially easy to set it earlier. They just felt the burning need to keep the Winter Soldier plot hole.

    Yep Sitwell specifically said anyone who is a threat to Hydra, now or in the future. Strange was definitely the future. A ridiculously brilliant and ego centric surgeon who took an oath to preserve life? Definitely sounds like something hydra wouldn't like.

    Strange also has to be one of the most intelligent people with anti-Hydra views. It makes perfect sense that Hydra would want him gone. And he is famous, which is why Sitwell mentioned him. It's not a plothole and I don't believe it was ever meant to be anything but a reference to Stephen Strange, the surgeon.
