Send me, via DM, your top 10 (at most) films released in the UK in 2021. If you want to make a shorter list, this is fine. Your number 1 will have 10 points, number 2 will have 9 points and so on.
The deadline is 10pm on Monday 3 January 2022 - this is so people can include films released at the end of the year (Hello, Titane!)
I will then countdown the top 20 on January 4 and 5
Films made for TV broadcast, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Mubi etc are ALL acceptable. They just need to have been released to the wider public for the first time in 2021. Films shown at film festivals that have not yet received wider distribution will NOT be accepted.
As things stand I think Summer of Soul is my favourite. The only 2021 release I’ve given 4.5 to on Letterboxd. Dune probably my runner up. That said I’m hoping for big things from the below I need to catch up on or that haven’t been released:
Catchup - The Green Knight, Spencer, Petite Maman, The Power of the Dog, West Side Story
Unreleased - Spider-Man, The Matrix Resurrections, Titane
Worst film was Space Jam: A New Legacy. The worst film I have seen for many many years.
Hadn’t heard of this and so looked it up. An apocalyptic type film it seems with an A-List cast including Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo Dicaprio, Cate Blanchett and Mark Rylance and they’re just the Oscar winners.
Just hope it’s not as shit as Netflix’s Midnight Sky last year. Similar premise of the end of the world but was utter shit.
The Lost Daughter looks good although I’ll probably watch some episodes of the new Cobra Kai series that’s released on the 31st.
Excellent film. Very classy and understated.
Think it was the first film I saw at the cinema after Dune (2021) at the IMAX so unfortunately it didn’t make a huge immediate impression but I did enjoy it and think about it quite a lot. In some ways it’s a perfect post-Dune film funnily enough. I look forward to a rewatch in the next year or so
The Columnist (intense af revenge movie)
The Mauritanian (Guantanamo, political thriller)
