Still, few more films to come this year so we shall see but I have been dissapointed a lot this year it seems.
The problem is that there are so many movies that it makes viewers fussy. I didn't bother with Kick-Ass 2 (it didn't seem to offer anything new) and I'm not bothering with Elysium (doesn't seem that fresh either). It's partly because I've had my fill of sci-fi and comic book movies this year. There's a limit to how many times you can feel the need to rush to the nearest cinema.
Studios are going overboard with the number of films they are releasing. And, at the same time, the marketing for many films is very poor.
