SEEN any good movies lately? How could you not? This has been a bumper year for movies big and small, imported and domestic, some made for hundreds of millions of dollars and others made for about the price of a grande soy latte. As has been the case in recent years, the top box office movies in America were mostly formulaic corporate entertainments, including the superhero comic-book fantasies like “Marvel’s The Avengers” that make some critics despair. Even amid the usual selection of big-screen cartoons and testosterone, though, it was nice to see female-driven stories like “The Hunger Games” — and all the female viewers its box office represents — muscling into the mix.
