This has been a banner year for blockbusters, depending on your point of view. If you’re a studio exec studying box-office returns you might be unhappy with a double-digit decline in box-office revenues this summer. (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is looking to rake in some serious dough this weekend, might help balance the scales somewhat.) But if you’re a moviegoer, you’re pretty happy — looking at CinemaScore audience reviews and Metacritic’s index of movie reviews, Entertainment Weekly found that paying moviegoers are as happy with this year’s big releases as last year’s — and critics think this year’s movies are an improvement from last year. And if you’re a VFX artist, you’ve got a lot to look at, from the strikingly photoreal CG of The Lego Movie to the amazing character work in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
