Off the top of my head
X-Men: First Class
was great, I thought. It made me like Magneto more than Xavier.
was very good, if surprisingly violent in places.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
was pretty good. You really root for the apes, particularly Caesar. (It's funny how Andy Serkis doesn't seem to play humans any more)
I also liked Source Code
. Kind of a high tech military science fiction anti-terrorist groundhog day.
I'm sure we can think of more
