King Richard
No Time to Die
A Quiet Place Part II
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Judas and the Black Messiah
Minari
West Side Story
Shang-Chi
Raya and the Last Dragon
Free Guy

I'm sure Dune will appear on a lot of Best of lists here, but for me honestly I just didn't love it enough to consider it one of my favorites of 2021.

There's a few more that I hope to check out and maybe one of them will bump one of the ones off my current list. But as of right now, those are my 10 favorites.

I havenít seen enough this year to make a good determination, but No Time to Die and Spider-Man: No Way Home were two of the best theatrical experiences Iíve had since before the pandemic. I also surprisingly enjoyed Cruella.

Is that the James Bond and Spider-Man Disney + crossover movie? :D

I didn't think anyone liked Gunpowder Milkshake much less giving it 5 stars. I liked it but didn't love it.

I know. I think a lot of people actually hated it. I love it though. Maybe I was just in a great mood that day. That movie just really hit the spot for exactly what I wanted right then.

  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal
  • The Tomorrow War
  • Godzilla Vs. Kong
Now my favorite first time watches:
  • They Live
  • Return of the Living Dead Part II
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
  • Police Story
  • Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
  • The Seventh Seal
  • Parasite
  • For All Mankind (1989)
  • Samsara
  • Modern Times
  • Honorary Mention: Tokyo Story

Re: Your Top 10 of 2021
 
I'm a little surprised that no one here included Judas and the Black Messiah in their lists. I thought that was a really well acted and compelling story. Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield were exceptional in it IMO.

Im pretty sure that was on my list before the Oscars. It technically came out this year, but I donít think most people consider it a 2021 film.

It was really good though.

This may be the year I've watched the least number of movies of my life, and I stopped updating my letterboxd when I DID actually watch stuff... So I'm looking forward to everyone's lists in order to remind myself of everything I've missed so far.
