Countdown to 2022: 2021 Movies

Sisters with Transistors

Last year I saw 29 movies, the first year I combined movies watched at home in my total. This year I saw 0 movies in the theater because of Covid, 7 new movies and older movies streaming from movie theaters, and 24 older movies streaming, all for a total of 31 movies!

I saw 6 new feature-length movies (1 of them twice) either in the theater, from theaters, or new movies streaming that would have been shown in theaters this year. 1 was from film forum, 1 was from Metrograph, 1 was originally from theaters but then I watched through PBS, 1 was independent, 1 went to Netflix for streaming, and the other went to HBO for streaming. 1 was an older film and 5 were new.  I saw all these movies for the first time.

My rating system uses stars and equates as follows: 1=bad, 2=ok 3=really good 4=great.

My favorite new movies (4 stars) this year were:
Tick… Tick… Boom

Runners up (3.5 stars):
Sisters with Transistors

My favorite old movie I saw for the first time:
Hannah Arendt
