It was right down the street from Sherlock Holmes address on Baker Street too.
is that his holmes address?
Yes 221B Baker Street London
It is a place of curious genius and a splendid land lady, Mrs. Hudson.
Someone needs to pop a magnifying glass round a user id
That's a moment that I wouldn't blame anyone for milking at every single chance they got.
"I'm really sorry for your loss, but I'm more sorry for those guys I beat up with Sherlock Holmes.
"I am truly sorry to hear that you SO left you as suddenly as those muggers left when me and Sherlock Holmes challenged them."
“That’s a great little league trophy your kid won, it’s almost as nice as the medal the city gave me after beating up a group of muggers with Sherlock Holmes”
Officer - And exactly how many times did he fall out the window?
Cumberbatch - Oh, it's all a bit of a blur, Detective Inspector. I lost count.
that uber driver is dopinder right? superpower:courage.
It's that first person to act thats important. It's why if you see something happening, its often important to try and help. People are afraid to be first, to step on toes, to take on responsibility that isn't theirs. Much of our personal responsibility has been abdicated. People think, thats the police's job, that's EMT's job. I shouldn't get involved.
So you'll see a lot of bystander effect...until that first person helps, then everyone else will help. Each additional person that helps makes it more likely for someone else to help.
I'd love to fight bad guys with benadrill crumblepitch.
OH MY GOD IS BURNEDMYDICK CUMBERSNARCH .... RUN!
Thank goodness it says doctor strange from the mcu, almost thought it was the other Benedict Cumberbatch
The one that played Sherlock?
No shit Sherlock
That's a funny joke, maybe someone should try building an entire movie around it.
Nah he's more famous for that rubbish Marvel movie from a few years ago that no one saw. Not the acclaimed Sherlock series which made him internationally famous.
You mean the hostage negotiator from Four Lions?
You mean that genius code breaker from The Imitation Game?
You mean the MI5 spy master from Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy?
You mean KHAAAAAAAAAAN!
What do you mean. Doctor strange was an awesome movie.
It's my fav solo movie of the MCU :(
Same. It's also one of the very few movies I would recommend seeing in 3D over 2D.
that no one saw
It made $677 million dollars sooooooooooo.... I think some people saw it
Lol it’s cool if you dislike the movie but don’t say “no one saw” it. It made hundreds of millions of dollars lmao.
It's like saying "Tom Hanks, Scott from Turner & Hooch...."
Paul McCartney, that old dude who did that song with Kanye
Paul McCartney, the singer whose 1966 death was covered up
Hooch is crazy.
Lol I feel like they’re just drawing comparisons like “looks he’s a hero in real life too!” But this is funny
Sandra Bullock, the lady from Bird Box
Come for the doctor, stay for the opiates addict.
I mean I'd run away too if a dragon came out of a cab and started yelling at me.
All the Strange and Holmes jokes, good to see Smaug here too.
It takes a computer genius to figure that out!
He is a Smaug son a of a bitch that’s for sure!
I thought dragons fuck cars, not jump out of them
Dark Lord Sauron is terrifying enough.
He was also kidnapped in South
This guy has a problem avoiding danger
Not 100% sure without looking it up, but I think it was a carjacking in South Africa.
yeah, carjacking, w/ about 3 other people. they tied up their hands with their own shoelaces and stuck him in the boot and drove them down a few miles. he got out of it by getting all eton and saying "you don't know who i am, you're going to be in a lot of trouble" while about wetting himself. they eventually left off the white people in a village and took the car. the villagers untied theri hands and took care of them while they all mentally broke down until the movie producers came and fetched them.
What about the black people? They kept them?
As I understand the events, it was Benedict Cumberbatch, Denise Black, and Theo Landey has gone scuba diving at a bay. On the way back the car's tire burst and they were attacked.
Then just before they were about to be executed Benedict pointed that they would have a dead Briton on their hands. So they just left with the car.
Shit. That was some rollercoaster.
he got out of it by getting all eton and saying "you don't know who i am, you're going to be in a lot of trouble" while about wetting himself.
I believe that's what's known as the "Eton Mess Defense"
Fuck he's VERY lucky to be alive.
This is the story:
”he had been travelling back to his hotel after learning to scuba dive in Santa Lucia, South Africa, with the actress Denise Black and a South African friend when the group suffered a punctured tyre.
”A gang of six men struck as they were trying to change the tyre, forcing them into a car before driving off, he told the Daily Star.
”They said: 'Put your hands on your head, don't look at us,' and were frisking us for drugs, money, weapons. Then they bundled us into the car," he said.
”I could see the headlight beams bumping over the dirt track and I thought of shallow graves.
”By the end of the night I was tied up next to Denise."
When the gang stopped, they forced Mr Cumberbatch into the boot of the car. He said: "But I argued my way out," he said. "I said: 'If you leave me in here, it's not the lack of air, it's the small space. There's a problem with my heart and my brain.'
”I just tried to explain to them: 'I will die, possibly have a fit, and it will be a problem for you. I will be a dead Englishman in your car. Not good.'
”They shut the boot and had an argument, and then pulled me out." He added: "I kind of thank God I had the presence of mind to give them the idea that it would be better to keep me alive. And the other two hadn't been harmed.
”It taught me that you come into this world as you leave it, on your own. It's made me want to live a life slightly less ordinary." source: telegraph
Benevolent Preventattack is a good dude.
Battletoad Cancerbath be kicking ass and taking names.
Shit, I’d run too if Sherlock Holmes came out of a car to stop me from robbing someone!
Yeah I think he was a better Sherlock than a Doctor Strange. Still fucking killed the Doctor Strange role tho
I love both, but with Sherlock going the way that it is it's kind of ruining itself for me. The first season of Sherlock was brilliant though and he was great in it. I think the writing was just more compelling to me than Dr. Strange's, probably because they had more time to flesh things out.
The cinematography was really great in Sherlock.
After season 1 it was all Tumblr fandom fanservice.
Even as a tumblr fangirl I found it getting more and more awful... the season finale was a big pile of dogshit. Moffat ruins everything he touches
Just as his Doctor Who run, it starts out brilliant and slowly gets worse and worse. But then someone else takes over and you realise how you can do much, much worse than Moffat.
Moffat is brilliant at standalone episodes, but give him a whole story arc and he completely ruins it and wanks himself off over how overly complex and nonsensical he's made it because it somehow makes him feel clever.
Yeah, moffat did some of my fave episodes of Doctor Who, but eventually it became completely unwatchable. However, I'm loving the new season much more than I thought I would. Whittaker surprised me at how well she captures the doctor.
Yes the Doctor is fine but the actual stories are just meh.
There's this indepth analysis about the BBC series that is really well done if you look besides the title. I was so caught up that I watched the whole thing.
Some points of criticism were that the writing is a mess. While in the first episode Sherlock is still actually doing some detective work this diminishes more and more over the series. We don't actually see him solve cases, cases get solved off-screen with stuff you can't guess and then we get told "can't you see how fucking brilliant Sherlock is, you are too stupid to see that".
The series also constantly tries to hype itself and build up to something great and fantastic but there never is anything. There's dark foreshadowing but then the whole thing kinda disappears again.
The series is throwing so much money at things like production techniques but it doesn't actually do much to help the plot.
Strange is boring. Cumby played the character well I reckon, but the writing for the character was just lacklustre.
Strange is like if Sherlock were reduced to a one note character. He's off-handedly arrogant because he's very good at what he does. And he's not even very good in the interesting, broad-spectrum yet oddly specific way Sherlock is, he's just a regular albeit very talented surgeon-turned-regular albeit very talented mystic arts practitioner.
Kinda feels like the MCU's got that "capable smug" vibe covered with Tony Stark, and Tony's got the decency to add no small amount of sass just to keep things lighthearted. Strange adds nothing to the MCU but some woogly reality-warping CGI, and Inception did that better.
TBF, the best screen portrayal of Dr. Strange is Dr. Orpheus from Venture Brothers.

I heard his theme music.

Yeah... he's "just" that...
I thought Strange was one of the better movies of the MCU. I've seen most of them. The only ones that really compared were X-Men.
X-Men aren't even part of the MCU
Strange's final battle scene was one of the most inventive, and really left a good impression on me when I think about the whole movie. I guess that's why I like it more than most MCU movies.
Doctor Strange was a great movie, but it had to cram his entire backstory into one film, plus have a mandatory fight against a big giant world-threatening villain at the end, which didn't leave a huge amount to develop him outside of his basic story.
(And they couldn't skim it because unlike eg. Batman or Superman, many viewers wouldn't be familiar with Strange.)
Well said, it was a good movie despite being super formulaic. So much of that is his personality carrying it. Same with Infinity War, just any wizard would not have worked, but one that can go ego to ego with Tony and it just fits.
The fight was great though. Instead of winning a fistfight like the typical superhero movie, Strange defeats Dormammu with a clever trick.
That seemed to me like such a Marvel way for the hero to win. Like in the original Spider-man comics, Spider-Man most often defeated his villains not with his superstrength, but with a clever trick or gadget. It wasn't just his powers that beat the bad guy, it was his mind, and I think a lot of marvel heroes win their battles that way.
I’ve come to realise that I do not love origin stories as an introduction to characters. There isn’t much they can do to make them original so most of the film you just watch an ordinary person you don’t really care about that much get the shit slammed out of them (physically or metaphorically) and then in the last 10 mins they’re awesome.
Where I can now I watch origin stories after I’ve seen a few films with the character already established and then I go back. I’m certain I wouldn’t have enjoyed the first Captain America film if I hadn’t already seen the Cap in action and (and also saw that he became less insufferable as the series went on!)
Im not really into the whole actor/character thing. But both of his characters have been my favorites. Sherlock out of all the sherlocks and Strange is my favorite hero portrayal.
He’s my second favorite Sherlock, my favorite is still Jeremy Brett.
My favorite Sherlock is definitely Commander Data.
What were your thoughts on Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock movies?
He’s fourth on my list under Elementary’s Sherlock.
Edit: I think that with so few movies that he’s played him, it’s harder to compare with someone that’s had more time in the character.
Understandable. I really love the fight scene with RDJ in the first Sherlock. The slo-mo in the movies is great. Gavin Free, from Slo-Mo guys and Achievement Hunter, also worked on the films (might have just been the second one).
Yeah, those scenes have a similar feel to the books where Sherlock is explaining how he worked something.
No love for Basil Rathbone? he even looked like Strand Magazine's illustrations of Sherlock.
Imagine like "Oh no... This is it... this is the end..." and seeing BRUMBLEDUM TENNIS MATCH RUNNING AT THE PEOPLE ATTACKING YOU!
No love for Englebert Humperdinck anymore :(
Holy shit OP, you don't have to explain to Reddit who Benedict Cumberbatch is. :D
Especially since OP attempted to pretend like he came up with an original title but really chose what Cumberbatch is lesser known for.
My good friend tried to do this exact thing. He got his ass beat. Lost multiple teeth and ended up in the hospital for two weeks with stiches on his face. Don't try to be a hero by putting yourself in harm's way. Call the cops, make a lot of noise. But be safe.
Why value your own life when you can look cool before getting beat to a pulp ¯_(ツ)_/¯
save someone and become a hero
keep fighting until they run off or get beat to death
Well you can always run away after the bluff yelling doesn't work..there is a car..
I'd just tell the uber driver to keep circling the block and make random noises when i pass the muggers. "WHOOP"
It's his choice. I'd rather take a beating than someone else, but that's because I believe I can take it. Maybe it's stupid, but then again I at least know some BJJ.
Is he really only best known for playing Doctor Strange?
And it happened around the corner from Baker Street. Sherlock all the way.
Imagine being a lowly criminal mugging some dude, and Doctor Strange hops out of his Uber and begins fighting you.
Cool guy cucumberhead
Good show old bean. Seriously I don't think I'd confront 4 guys at once
Doctor Strange is an odd pull for Bembedict Cumberbatch, isn't it?
This is why we're fine without guns. If you're ever in danger in the UK then some actor, musician or sportsman will be along shortly to save the day.
Some of the more overzealous celebs can actually get a trifle annoying. I dropped a plate last week and ended up with two third division footballers, David Tennant, and half of Oasis jumping out of the cupboard to make sure I was okay.
half of Oasis
Not Liam, obviously
Not all heroes wear capes..but this one does.
I think, in this case, the cap wears him. But I agree.
Wimbledon Tennismatch is a genuine guy, up there with Keanu Reeves
I’ve heard he has three dicks.
For real though. Sounds like an A+ human being. That makes me happy.
Also for real though, I’ve heard he has three dicks.
That motherfucker has like... 30 god damn dicks.
Is this post an ad? What is the point of mentioning Doctor Strange? That wasn't even his biggest role.
I love how here on Reddit, he’s ‘Doctor Strange from the Marvel films’, but to NPR, he’s ‘Sherlock from the BBC series of the same name’.
To be fair, to most of Reddit, he’s Sherlock. Just to OP apparently he’s Doctor Strange.
And he shouted: "Don't you cumberback!"
Some heroes do wear capes.
"There is no lane so vile that the scream of a tortured child, or the thud of a drunkard’s blow, does not beget sympathy and indignation among the neighbours, and then the whole machinery of justice is ever so close that a word of complaint can set it going, and there is but a step between the crime and the dock." -- Sherlock Holmes
He's not called Bendadick Crushinhalf for nothing...
If I saw the grinch get out of an Uber, I would just question my existence...
They're just lucky it was Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes that intervened, had it been Robert Downey Junior a lot more bones might have been broken.
Goog guy Cumberbatch
The fact that Cumberbatch is best known here for his MCU credits is sad.
oh bullshiit. sid the sloth does not fight anyone. he gave them a talking-to
Uber marketing post
Kiefer Sutherland once started to do something like that, but then he learned the mugging was a fake, and everybody involved was participating in a prank. Still, it's good that he tried to do the right thing.
He takes a deep breath down to the pits of his lungs and beyond. Down to the darkness that threatens to seep into our reality and brings it back out, changed. He releases it.
“Fus Ro Dah!”
The gang of thieves scatter, their sense of reality irrevocably changed.
They should have asked him to say "penguin".
Why am I not surprised that the primary move in his fighting style is screaming at people? And that it works?
It was also reported that Benedict Cumberact ch screamed ferociously that the victim started running too.
