4. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
I started the summer loathing the idea ofanotherreboot, but found myself seeing this movie twice, a pleasant surprise!
I was looking forward to this movie for well over a year, planned a whole mini-road trip with friends for opening night, and saw it 2 more times in theaters after that!
2. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
It’s the friggin end to the legendary Nolan trilogy…
1. THE AVENGERS
This takes the top spot solely for it’s ability to allow me the pleasure of escaping reality for a few moments to fall back into my childhood. I saw it multiple times, played the stupid game on Fbook, read the fanfiction, and am very excited for the upcoming TV show, and ran Marvel movie marathons in celebration before and after it’s release.
