I'm honestly surprised that the X-Men franchise, of all the comic books made into films, is the one arguably going the strongest. With no reboots, no major failures, and consistently seeing the franchise grow it has become the films to beat for every wannabe comic book film. The Avengers is raking in the cash but X-Men has been with us since the beginning and simply evolving as the times and film styles change. You may not enjoy every film in the franchise, I'm talking about you Origins, but the consistency isn't anything to ignore.
|1. The Wolverine|
Somehow another film about Wolverine didn't turn out to be horrible. Despite being sick of examining the psychosis of this character yet again I enjoyed this story line more than the others before it. While it could have been better this is a decent placeholder until Days of Future Past releases.
|2. The Smurfs 2|
Don't buy this movie.
|3. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones|
I actually enjoyed watching the commercials for this Twilght wannabe. They were desperately trying pretend the hype behind this franchise was immense, a new cultural touchstone. While it did do well enough at the box office I wouldn't be surprised to watch this franchise fade into obscurity.
