    The Legend of Zorro

    Sorry, Nintendo fans, but you should have read that title more closely if you were expecting a different swordsman. Martin Campbell was cultivating all of his blockbuster franchises in the mid-2000s, but if you thought Daniel Craig's casting was controversial, this film came out a little too long after "The Mask of Zorro" and a little too soon after "Shrek 2".

Leave it to me to know about and remember "Final Girl" enough to think about it first thing when I see this film (Alexander Ludwig seriously stars in both movies, so I find it impossible to not), while everyone else is possibly thinking about "American Horror Story" when they see Taissa Farmiga. It's hard to not…
