From tales of protagonists desperate to stay airborne to those determined to land, I laughed, cried and tried to ignore illuminated mobiles as cinemagoers checked their texts. Enough preamble. Here's my pick of the 30 best films of the year.

The Beginning of the End for the Superhero Film

Excluding The Avengers, only Iron Man has been granted a second and third film, with Thor getting his second outing later this year, but if Marvel's latest recruits are anything to go by, they're already reaching the bottom of the barrel in terms of big names with the traction to carry their own series.

While critics can have devastating effects on live theatre productions, history has shown they have little effect on the movie going public. Word of mouth and hype normally are the driving factors in a film's success or failure...at least initially.

Batman Vs Superman Is a Terrible Idea

The reaction to the Batman/Superman film literally brought tears to some fans' eyes at Comic-Con on Saturday. A project which previously failed to take off with Wolfgang Petersen at the reins in 2004, it is an aggressive and bold effort by DC Comics to match Marvel's output. But it is the wrong approach and demeaning to Batman, a character who has just fronted three thrilling pictures.

Not all heroines are sexualised. Some are just pathetic, and to be honest I can't work out what is more depressing. For example, Lois Lane in Man of Steel is a confident, intelligent journalist. Who falls in love with Superman after approximately two conversations.

'Man of Steel' or the Second Coming of Christ?

Melkon Charchoglyan | Posted 17.08.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Melkon Charchoglyan

All in all the film is a less than successful attempt at the 'dark hero' genre, underlined with laughable Christian propaganda. The ponderous, loving, Plato-reading Clarke Kent comes across as an incomplete character, too simple for the grandiose task set by the director.

Man of Steel - Review

Kieran Turner-Dave

Man Of Steel is such an omnishambles that it is difficult to ascertain what Zack Snyder was actually attempting to achieve... If Snyder set out to make a serious and brooding Dark Knight-style superhero film, then he has failed spectacularly as Man Of Steel has a total absence of character exploration, interest in a believable villain or real, live-action jeopardy

Excited for Man of Steel? Why Wouldn't I Be?

The cast, the scriptwriter, the producer, the composer (Yes, I am listening to snatches of Hans Zimmer's score as I write this!) It's the optimum mix of the right talent at the right time that can only lead to perfection, right? I am firm in the belief that Man of Steel could be the most epic superhero story ever told on the big screen.

I like paying extortionate amounts for an uncomfortable seat, no pause button, no tea-making facilities, surrounded by idiots grazing on plastic cheese and crisps as you watch a crap film. It's what many of us regard as a 'luxury'. Nothing wrong with treating yourself to a bit of luxury.

Film Review: Man of Steel

Jack Pelling | Posted 12.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jack Pelling

Snyder's vision is a clear departure from previous adaptations, ridding itself of the wry humour, self-deprecation and black and white morals of Richard Donner's films. Snyder's universe is not one in which cats are saved from trees and people wear underpants over their trousers.

Caroline Frost | Posted 11.08.2013 | UK Entertainment

3starsentertainment Zack Snyder can safely say he's put his own stamp on a 80-year brand, but I'd have happily swapped 30 minutes of the black puffs of smokey Apocalypse for just a couple more raised eyebrows and acknowledgement that a beautiful man, blue tights, arms crossed, red cape and quiff a-kimbo is actually quite a funny thing when you think about it.
