It's probably a bot, but I'm still gonna answer the question.

2021 isn't one of the big standout years for movies, though there are still a few great ones. My favorite right now is White Trash, a very thrilling Swedish movie of the kind you don't see much of nowadays. You can tell the director is inspired by Guy Ritchie, but manages to make the thing not feel like a total copy. Donald Högberg är nothing short of incredible, a very scary mobster who's darkly hilarious at the same time.
Second place is The Last Duel, which I highly recommend for those wondering if Ridley Scott's still got it. A complex story which leaves you with a lot to think about by the end. I've seen Adam Driver in a few movies and he always does a good job, but this has to be the best performance I've seen from him. Matt Damon has done well in layered roles as shown by Jason Bourne and excels here too.
After that I would say either Knocking or Be My Voice.

Can't wait for The Last Duel, but I have to, cause there's yet another 3 week lockdown over here..

The Night House is my favorite movie of the year. And possibly top 10 all time for me



I will start with two medieval ones, The Green Knight and The Last Duel. The western world seems to be sinking once again into this kind of cultural quagmire and I might as well be ready, sharpening my broadsword and shining up my armor.

Then there's The Lamb, a Swedish movie, part of my actual cultural baggage and another piece of how our culture is sinking into a strange place, as a couple adopt a lamb (like a furry one) and treat it like their kid.

Then, back in the real world, there's Spencer. I recall the whole Princess Diana drama well enough to have a cheesy pleasure in seeing it dramatized. There wasn't a whole lot of substance there, but Kristin Stewart was good at mimicking Diana's poses. She must have checked out all of the Life Magazine editions in the public library that had the millions of Diana photos.

Finally, in my top 5 is Last Night in Soho. It's an enjoyable weird plot and I was really in the mood for something urban. I think I would have actually preferred that it be in the NYC version of SOHO and had a small role for Woody Allen, but Brit and urban was nearly as enjoyable.



2021 has not been a movie year. I am waiting for the spider man new movie. hope are high!



I usually catch up with films later in the current year or the next. Because of that, I've only seen 6 films from 2021, but here they are...

  1. Red Dot -
  2. Raya and the Last Dragon -
  3. Black Widow -
  4. Blood Red Sky -
  5. Blue Miracle -
  6. Spiral -

Now, isn't it odd that the two 3.5's start with "R", and the three 3's start with "BL"??
