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.

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.)

Last month, I made a pitifully vague and uninteresting post about this wonderful and super cool film. Won’t even link it—hate it that much. I have now re-watched it, so to repent for my lazy sins, this will be dedicated to actually sharing my thoughts on this.

Shockingly enough, I have not watched a ton of garbage this month, which is normally something I like to do from time to time. Watching good films is great, don’t get me wrong. But for a trashy connoisseur like me, nothing hits quite like a really, really bad film. So I decided to watch this.
It was disappointing.

Thought about labeling this with its English name… but if I’m gonna commit to labeling anime in their Japanese-English forms, may as well provide the same courtesy, if applicable.

Another short post today. Running out of time and work was heavy today.

As I inch closer to the end of March, my desire to write super in-depth reviews for films decreases dramatically. On top of what I also do for my job (additional writing), it’s a whole lot of writing in one day. And I’m currently sporting a lovely headache. Let’s see how long I can go before I can’t take it.

Superhero films aren’t really my thing. Ever since the giant Marvel superhero craze of the late 2000’s, it’s just been non-stop blockbuster after blockbuster—commercials, sponsorships, specific actors everywhere. I got sick of it all very quickly. Even before then, superhero films were kind of an “empty calories” sort of enjoyment, where I could just enjoy some dumb good vs. evil plot and some rad special effects. Unfortunately, my brain will not let me enjoy them further than that caliber anymore.
Even so, Darkman always called to me.
