June typically sees Hollywood’s blockbuster factory working at its highest capacity, and yet this year it resulted in a surprisingly low number of undeniable duds.
Sure, there were disappointments all the same, but nothing as critically-reviled as a Transformers movie, for instance. Instead, several potentially-awful films proved pleasantly surprising, while the likes of Pixar and James Wan delivered as just about everyone expected.
