There is also a lot here that simply didn’t work for me as well as intended, so I won’t call it a great movie (it certainly isn’t a top tier Marvel movie), but what Sam Raimi has added to it is enough for me to say that I really liked it, though I can fully understand why some would really struggle with it.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a consistently funny action bromance meta-comedy that doubles as a loving tribute to Nicolas Cage, as well as his exaggerated on-screen persona. Review

For horror fans, it might be fun to check out because of its obvious inspirations (and Englund’s vocal cameo) and its gimmicky pemise (which is better on paper than it is executed), but I really can’t recommend this one. Review

It won’t be for everyone, but it absolutely is an amazing experience and an awesome picture, in part thanks to Skarsgård’s fully committed performance. I really do think that this is Robert Eggers’ best film. Review

It is a disturbing and thought-provoking thriller with a lot on its mind, such as manners, conflict avoidance, and the impotence of the modern man. Review

On the whole, I don’t think it has as much to say as 2020’s Sound of Metal did, and I do think it is both formulaic, predictable, and slight. It isn’t the film that I would’ve voted for, but I do think it is a very sweet and very good film. Review

It’s a fascinating film about the power of suggestion, deception, mentalism, and drifters, and it deserves a lot of praise for its brilliant production design, which has helped to make it one of the best-looking films of 2021. Review

It’s a terribly dull film that had so much potential on paper. It’s one of the year’s first real movie disappointments for me. Review

What matters is that one of America’s greatest filmmakers has remade a terrific musical with his West Side Story, which is technically superb, old school, and awe-inspiring. I loved it more than I thought I would. Review

I greatly enjoyed Shawn Levy’s The Adam Project, an ‘original’ film that wears its inspirations proudly on its sleeve. Review

I don’t think it is one of the very best Pixar films, but I think it is undeniably charming, very relatable, and I loved the way it was animated. Review

Although I actually do think the switch, or twist, is better and more exciting than the execution of the latter half of the film, I thought Mimi Cave’s feature-length directorial debut was really entertaining. Review

I still think it is a servicable survival drama, but Against the Ice is not as good as it should be, even though it had a lot going for it on paper. Review

It is a dark, grimy, and hard-hitting new beginning for the iconic Caped Crusader, who has here been returned to — and refamiliarized audiences with — his World’s Greatest Detective-nickname. Review

Unforgettable and confidently made, David Lowery’s The Green Knight is an extraordinary tale of heroism and temptation. Review

Even though some of the gruesome set-pieces are relatively well-executed, David Blue Garcia’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a derivative disappointment with hollow characters (that make fairly dumb decisions), plot contrivances, themes that go nowhere interesting, and poor dialogue. This is a bit of a dud, unfortunately. Review

While I don’t love it as much as its biggest fans seem to do, I will say that I really dug this one. Although it perhaps never reaches the action movie highs of Reloaded or Revolutions (the new action here is just not as smooth or inventive), I do think The Matrix Resurrctions is arguably the best Matrix sequel.

Kimi is a very entertaining modern techno-thriller with a lot of energy. It is also arguably the best film set in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that has come out thus far. Review

It is both a beautiful, heartbreaking, and harrowing film and probably my pick for the best documentary of 2021. Review

I really do think that the revival significantly improved upon my own memory of the original show. It really did remind me of just how much I once enjoyed it. Review

The film is funny but brutal, as well as clever and provocative as it comments on the legacyquel trend (and toxic fandom). It fits right into the existing franchise and is probably now the third-best film in the series. Review

It is so good in large part thanks to these multi-faceted performances, its well-written narrative, and its gripping, grimy, and brutal Medieval action sequences. Review

I think it is fair to say that this primarily feels like an exercise in style and visual design. However, it is a quite successful exercise, in my honest opinion. Review
