Today came a day like no other, a day when I saw a film I never expected to see in the cinema, my most anticipated film of the year, Marvel's Avengers Assemble. The culmination of Marvel's ambitious scheme to weave comic book style continuity into film, so how does this scheme pay off. Put it this way, Avengers Assemble is easily one of the best superhero films ever made and is the best out of all of the Marvel Studio's films.

After I sat through the sheer awfulness of The Hunger Games, I needed something to help lift my spirits up, thankfully there is a new Aardman film out and it's Aardman's return to good old fashioned stop-motion animation. Now I love Aardman and I have been hyped for The Pirates all year, putting it ahead of films like Skyfall and Dark Shadows in my list of most anticipated films of 2012. So how does it hold up? It's one of the funniest films I've seen in a while.

Today I went to see one of the most anticipated and successful films of the year, as well as one of the most critically acclaimed. Is it bad that, for me, the highlight of the cinema experience for this film was seeing the trailers for Avengers Assemble and Dark Shadows on the big screen. As you can tell, I didn't like The Hunger Games all that much.
