It’s been an interesting year in movies, often wildly uneven with some huge hits, lots of misses, and some yet to be seen. Those stingy movie studios are just now delivering some of the most anticipated movies into theaters, a frustrating marketing maneuver that saves money and builds interest — supposedly.
