A surprisingly solid actioner with a great turn by Karl Urban. Just about everything we'd been missing from the summer, and managed so well that we were pretty blown away.
It was a show of surprises, with a comedy that wasn't funny, and a musical that defied you to care that it was a musical.
Easily one of the best of the year, and a film that showcases the best efforts in a variety of technical aspects. It's worth it just to see great actors giving great performances, but is equally fun.
The new Hobbit film didn't impress us, but at least we covered the Golden Globe noms. So there's that.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 didn't win us over, and left us even more disappointed than the first. This despite some decent turns by the actors.
