The Best & Worst Films of 2021

Like I’ve done the past couple of years, I wanted to share every single film I watched this past year as we prepare to go into 2022. However, to make it a little less chaotic, I categorized the films I watched:

The Superiors: Films I will happily watch again if I haven’t already watched them again.

Honorable Mentions: These films were better than the others but haven’t quite reached the highest level of superiority.

Never Again: I watched them once and want my time back.

The Others: Films that were kind of so-so and I’ll probably forget I watched.
