It's been a great month, but only one release can assemble its way to the top!
There was always some doubt in my mind as to which entertainment release would claim the crown for being the best in its class this month, what with a stellar roster. Indeed, what with the releases of both The Cabin In The Woods and The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition (the April runner-ups), I thought we may have already found a winner just a couple of weeks in. However, it wasn't until yesterday evening that I had a definite knowledge of which product I would choose- it can only be Avengers Assemble. Such a masterpiece of a superhero movie cannot go unrewarded for bringing together its team of contrasting movie legends into a strong narrative and giving them all sufficient time in the limelight without letting them hog it for too long. I can't wait to see what Joss Whedon has up his sleeve next, because his two film releases this month are both up at the top of the list in terms of sheer quality. When it comes to choosing Film Of The Year, the challenge will have never been harder, with War Horse, The Muppets and this already cementing their places high in the ranks, and Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Great Gatsby still to come! And don't get me started on 2012's overall Best Entertainment Release...
