Man, what a year for movies am I right? I’ve watched a lot of films this year, even if I didn’t review them on the site. It’s time to reveal my list for top 5 films of the year (no specific order)! Enjoy, and if you have a list then share.
The Mitchells vs. the Machines
The Mitchells vs. the Machines, in my opinion, doesn’t get talked about enough because it’s such an incredible movie! Sony Pictures Animation really found their style, and I was just blown away from the animation. Also, loved the heartfelt story and messages the film provides. This film was a no brainer when I thought about my top 5.
Judas and the Black Messiah
Judas and the Black Messiah was such a powerful biopic. When you know the history and watching the film being retold is just such a crazy experience. Hell, I even felt a type of way too. This film has such an amazing cast and they deserve all the praise. If you haven’t seen this movie, turn on HBO Max and watch this movie.
The Suicide Squad
One thing is for sure, James Gunn is so good at his job. The Suicide Squad had a great cast and a badass score. The visuals and cinematography for this movie blew me away too, plus I was a sucker for the comedy as well because it landed every time. Easily one of, if not the best, current live-action DC film we’ve had in a long time.
If this film or Will Smith doesn’t win an Oscar, then I don’t know what to say because King Richard blew me away! The cast was just fantastic and it made me appreciate the sport of tennis and what goes into it. I knew enough about the Williams sisters, but doing a deep dive into their history with this biopic was done so well. Easily one of my favorite films to come out this year.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time
I know I said earlier that the list isn’t in specific order, but if there’s one thing I’m sure about is that Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time is my favorite film in 2021. Years of Evangelion led to this final moment of the franchise, and it was beautifully well done. Hideaki Anno gave us a masterpiece with this film, and it was worth the wait.
