Disclaimer – this list is based off the movies I was able to view in 2021.  There are a few movies from 2021 that I have yet to see that might have made the list had I viewed them such as “The Green Knight” and “The last Duel.”

Honorable Mention

“I Care a Lot”  Rosamund Pike is captivating in this flick.  You will love to hate her throughout the movie.

5-“Nobody” Who knew Bob Odenkirk could do action? This movie had great action with a mix of Christopher Lloyd kicking ass.  If you are a fan of John Wick, give Nobody a watch.

4-“Ghostbusters Afterlife” I was late to this party. Is this movie just a ton of fan service?? Yes, but you couldn’t kick the smile off my face for days after watching this one on the big screen.  As a kid from the 80s and 90s, I was so happy after watching this flick.

3-“The Mitchells vs the Machines” This flick defiantly fell under the radar.  One of the best animated movies I have seen since Zootopia.  A gem on Netflix and worth checking out.

2-“007 No Time to Die” A great bookend to the Daniel Craig series. One of Daniel Craigs better outings as James Bond.

1-“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”  I knew nothing of this character going into this movie and was surprised how Marvel handled this origin story.  I talked about this movie for weeks after viewing and was quick to rewatch a few times once it hit Disney Plus.  It was a refreshing take on a superhero origin story.  If you are here reading this, my guess is you have already watched Shang-Chi and enjoyed it.
