    “interesting’ has always a positive meaning so also the word “pretty”. So pretty is good replacement for strangely before the word “interesting”. As:
    Today I was introduced to a number of strangely/pretty interesting characters

    strangely curious
    However, “curious can mean both ways. So pretty can not fit well in place of strangely before the word “curious”. In my opinion, quite is a good replacement As:
    People seem to be strangely/quite curious about banned films.

    I'd say it can be read literally.
    Interesting in a strange way.
    Curious in a strange way. (But if something is curious, you could say it was strange anyway).
