Independent Cinema writes: It’s the end of the year, and now for the unnecessary lists that are fun to make. I’ll do a top 10 list as well, but for now, I do want to note the films that surprised me at how good they were. On the flip side, I also want to shine a light on the films that disappointed me immensely. Now, there were many films that weren’t good this year, and many great films as well. However, the point of this list is to highlight those movies where there was a lot of skepticism or a lot of hype on my own behalf which turned out to be unwarranted.
