“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
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.
what does strangely mean with these words? Pretty??
