  2. I like that Pitch Perfect is so high on your list, it was a great example of a movie that wasn’t exactly masterfully crafted or profound in anyway but it was just so damn entertaining that none of that mattered. Good lists 🙂

  3. Don’t hate me but I wasn’t that crazy about The Avengers movie. The best movie to me was the third batman movie.
