Favorite Movies of 2021

I typically post my favorites of the year in December and January, but I never got around to posting a list of movies. I’m not a fan of the Oscars, or award shows in general, but I figured with the awards being given out tonight, this is a good time as any to post my movie list.

Here is my list of every movie I’ve watched from 2021 with links to my reviews, ranked from my most favorite to least favorite. Despite the ranking I think all of these movies were pretty good with the exception of the last film on the list. Note that I use the date of release to general audiences whereas sources like Letterboxd considers some of these movies from 2020 because they were screened at film festivals.

Summer of Soul
In the Heights
The Green Knight
Judas and the Black Messiah
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Raya and the Last Dragon
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things
Street Gang: How We Got To Sesame Street
Once Upon a Time in Queens
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Robin Robin
Free Guy
Black Widow
