While there were good films in 2021, there was a lack of groundbreaking movies to rave about. Unlike years past, films like A PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, PARASITE or THE REVENANT were water-cooler talk. However, that is not to say I didn't enjoy a dozen films released this past year, and a handful of the worst projects.
Starting with the most compelling film, here are my top 2021 films.
1. THE KILLING OF KENNETH CHAMBERLAIN
4. KING RICHARD
5. WEREWOLVES WITHIN
7. SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS
8. NO TIME TO DIE
11. SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME
12. EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE
These films were a big disappointment and inspired many eye rolls and laughs.
