I have dedicated this page to movies that I have watched in 2021 (these have to be fairly current movies from this year or late last year to make the list). Newest movies are at the top. I have no idea how Covid-19 will affect this year but I’ll make an effort to see 10 moves in theaters and then another 30 at home. Are they even going to make 40 movies this year?
Jungle Cruise: I enjoyed it! It’s not super original- sort of an Indiana Jones meets Allan Quartermain meets Pirates of the Caribbean. Lots of ride references make it a solid adaption.
Boss Level: Fun enough. I’m always up for a wild time travel monstrosity.
Army of the Dead: This is a fun movie to watch, but it’s ultimately pretty dark and nihilistic. The movie sets up the opportunity for a sequel gloriously.
Thunder Force: Truly Stupid…
The Croods: A New Age: This moves really surprised me. I thought it was hilarious and had a good healthy message. A true joy to watch in 4K.
Justice League: The Snyder Cut: Slow and somewhat plodding but a tremendous amount of additional character exposition. Necessary? Maybe not. I like the more serious tone of Snyder’s cut as compared to the colorful sarcastic Whedon film. I would say it’s definitely a better film than the first, but perhaps unnecessarily long.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Raya and the Last Dragon
I’m missing one… watched it the other night.
Midnight Sky: [Home, Netflix]: I kept waiting for some great moment to happen. There’s a small twist that’s okay, but overall this movie is slow and a little bland. And I would call the ending tremendously unsatisfying.
TENET: [Home, Bluray] I’m going to need to watch this one again…
