As the headline reads over on the LA Times website, The Avengers was not only voted the most overrated movie of 2012 by the publications readers, but evidently took the title by "a landslide". From the article:
"According to more than 2,600 respondents to a Times online survey Joss Whedon's get-the-band-together take on the iconic superheroes was the most overpraised feature film of 2012."I mean.... really? Not the one long plot hole that was The Dark Knight Rises? Not the overly self-important Lincoln? The most overpraised movie of 2012 was the super hero movie that was damn near perfect?
I'm going to go crack open a bottle of Scotch and spend the rest of the day trying to process this one.
