With so many franchises either refreshing their reputation anew (Alien) or bringing a heralded saga to a close (Batman), it’s natural to expect that the year has had its share of controversy, as it’s impossible to please everyone, and sometimes people just aren’t going to be happy no matter what you bring to the table. The year’s most popular films served up a wealth of surprises that largely proved divisive, particularly as far as the Internet conversation goes, whereby people were either dissatisfied that their beloved franchise didn’t close out in the manner that they envisioned, or they’ve made pains to highlight what they perceive as plot-holes within the narrative (regardless of whether they actually are). Other films crowbarred open political debates about race and torture, ensuring that this year’s film dialogue was as healthily provocative as any that has ever been conducted. »
