Top 10 Films I Viewed in 2021

2021 was one full of video games for me, personally. Working full-time for KeenGamer for a large majority of the year meant I didn’t have too much time to really focus on anything else, outside of perhaps attending Twitch streams or setting aside time to watch films with friends. In part because of the latter, as well as my annual March of the Movies block, I saw over 100 films during the course of 2021, which allows me to be able to comprise a list of the best of the best. Who doesn’t love a good Top 10?

For those who didn’t register the title of the post, this is a Top 10 of the films I viewed during the course of 2021, not films specifically released in 2021. Frankly, I don’t think I could even list ten films I watched that released in 2021… Nevertheless, there will be a (yeah, singular) film from 2021 on this list, so I suppose that counts for something.

I will also note that I’ve made individual posts or reviews for most of the films that will be listed here, so this will be pretty to-the-point. Should people want to know more, I’ll link to the place where more of my stupid words are available in a non-stupid fashion.

Thoughts on Last Night in Soho

Hey, hey! My first film post since May! It’s been ever too long.

Last Night in Soho is a film I found out about somewhat recently, intrigued more by the cast and director more than the premise itself. Not to say the premise isn’t interesting, but when you have the likes of Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Matt Smith among the main cast, with Edgar Wright orchestrating the overall, that’s enough starpower to have most at least curious. Though it’s labeled as a horror film, that didn’t deter me from seeing it in theaters fairly quickly.

Like most horror films I’ve seen, however, it ends up being something of an immersive trap.

(Minor story spoilers will be present in this review.)

Ranking The Oscars 2021 Best Picture Candidates (+ Some Extras)

Something nice happened this year. Due to the graciousness of a dear friend of mine, I was able to watch every film nominated for Best Picture this year. That marks the first time in this blog’s far-too-long history that I managed to do so, despite my best efforts (being frugal can be limiting). As such, expect a much longer ranking post this year, as I also managed to squeeze in a couple extra films nominated for other awards I’d like to discuss.
