PODCAST: 2021 Roundup – Films of the Year [Movie Robcast]


It now may be 2022, but we’re starting the year looking back at 2021.

While perhaps not a banner year in general, 2022 was a fine year for cinema. Bond returned in triumph, Spider-Man topped off the year with box office glory, Cruella proved Disney could turn a classic cartoon character into a live-action triumph, Dune turned out to be filmable, and West Side Story was the remake we didn’t know we needed.

But, it was not all about the blockbusters, and cinema in 2021 was actually better in those smaller films. Riders of Justice, Quo Vadis, Aida, Nomadland, Shiva Baby, Judas and the Black Messiah, The Lost Daughter, Shadow in the Cloud, and many more shone light on another dark year and demonstrated the exciting power of cinema.

There were some bumps in the road. Ghostbusters: Afterlife, anyone? The Matrix: Resurrections? Or (*shudder*), Halloween Kills?

So, plug in and check out the films that rocked us and shocked us in 2021.
