Oh who are we kidding, we all know it was Iron Man 3. I know. Sorry for the spoilers. Except not really, because Marvel is a gawddamn island in and of itself, and it’s basically become the film industry’s show pony. Oh, and number two was Despicable Me 2, because people love tic-tac shaped creatures. That wasn’t sarcastic; those minions are f*cking ADORABLE. Via HuffPo

Honestly, I’m okay with most of this. Iron Man 3 was a sharp, well-written movie with absolutely fantastic directing and jaw-dropping action sequences. Despicable Me 2 was just cute from start to finish, and Fast & Furious 6 had Paul Walker (may he rest in peace). There were just a lot of good movies that actually did well this year, and I think that’s a good thing.
