Top 5 Movies of 2021
Even if the pandemic negatively impacted the Box Office Business, it did not stop the successful releases of many content and visually driven films that made 2021 a year to remember. Check out our top 5 movies of 2021.
#5 Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Springs
After successful series of Marvel Movies that explored and redefined the superhero genre, the first prominent Asian American superhero movie had many expectations to meet. However, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings hit the bullseye and brought something incredibly refreshing, yet keeping the Marvel movie formula alive. From taking inspiration from anime, kaiju, wuxia and paying tribute to Eastern Cinema legends like Bruce Lee, Jackie Chen, Stephen Chow, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Jet Li, and Iko Uwais, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the The Ten Rings bought the perfect mixture of the eastern martial arts fantasy with the western superhero.
#4 King Richard
After his acclaimed performances as Muhammad Ali in Ali (2006) and Chris Gardner in The Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith returns on the screen once again to prove that he is one of the finest actors of his generation. The fantastic supporting cast and crew serve their purpose by giving Smith the atmosphere to perform at his best and race for the Oscars yet again. King Richard is a must-watch movie with an inspirational and heart-touching narrative.
#3 Zack Snyder’s Justice League
One of the most celebrated moments for DC fans and the fans of the Superhero genre. The highly anticipated Snyder Cut of Justice League 2017 was released on HBO Max. Justice League 2017 suffered a problematic production. In May 2017, Snyder stepped down during post-production following the death of his daughter, and Joss Whedon was hired to finish the film, adding a brighter tone and reducing the runtime. The theatrical version of Justice League received mixed reviews and was a box office disappointment. Later, Snyder was bought in to finish his original vision, which resulted probably one of the best superhero movies of all time. The Snydercut brings in the emotional depth, improved characterization, and efficient visual effects.
#2 007: No Time To Day
The post-pandemic blockbuster that was able to bring people from all ages back to the theaters, No Time To Die, brings a satisfying conclusion to universally beloved Daniel Craig’s time as James Bond. The Spy film of 2 hours and 43 mins departs from traditional black and white spy action movies. It adds more complexity with humor, practical visual effects, and refreshing stunt-work. Everyone will miss Craig, and we all are honored that he gave us five incredible movies.
The Harder They Fall
Power of The Dog
The Last Duel
#1 Spider-Man: No Way Home
The movie of the year is already considered one of the best Superhero movies of all time. Tom Holland continues to hang in there with his firm grip at the role of a lifetime that bought him international recognition. When fans walked into the theaters to watch Spider-Man in 2002, they never taught that it would start a memorable journey of almost two decades and conclude with Spider-Man: No Way Home. Richly written characters, breathtaking visual effects, chilling score, and fan service makes this film a larger-than-life experience.
