It means something different from that, here. Number 11, the last, in a list of ‘The Best Movies of 2012’, is headed ‘the pop spot’.
Perhaps because it is described as the best example of ‘box-office escapism’? This is a guess.
It must mean something like that. It’s only slightly confusing because other films on the list, like Spielberg’s Lincoln, have also been big box-office successes.
It’s obviously some kind of comment on the lack of ‘seriousnesss’ of this type of film.
