Minari and Sound of Metal would be higher ranked than Nomadland to me, I fond it pretentious and basically misery porn, had little to say in my opinion, they made what people wanted to watch, successful Oscar bait. The Father was also not my thing, I enjoy the film and whatnot, but, that's it. It reminds me of Amour, I also though was not that great. I also liked Siberia, that's another film I watched. I rarely watch the films when they come out, just when I like the director, I let time do it's justice and only then spend the two hours watching it. I also watched The Little Things because of the casting, the title and Denzel quote was certainly from The Shoelace Poem by Charles Bukowski. One of the worst films Denzel ever did, in my opinion.

I, too, was disappointed with The Little Things, Denzel's character just seemed like a rehash of half a dozen other characters he's played. The best thing about The Little Things was Jared Leto...he was amazing.

Totally agree. Jared Leto is a true chameleon.



The trick is not minding
Not enough to validate a top ten yet, and thereís still so much more to watch, but so far Iíd rank the following top five:

1. The Green Knight
2. In The Heights
3. CODA
4. The Courier (I know this is a 2020 film but it received a theatrical release this year so Iím not going to quibble)
5. Werewolves Within



Scarlett Johansson has starred in some stunning films in recent years, such as
I think Marriage Story is worth seeing because its atmosphere is very romantic



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
Very early but I've just seen the Best Acting I've seen in 2021 - Tim Blake Nelson in Old Henry.
