10 of the Best Movies of 2021

With the world slowly beginning to get back to normal over the last few months and movie theaters once more opening their doors, film releases steadily trickled back, giving audiences a chance to catch up on dozens of long-anticipated movies they’d been waiting months (sometimes years) to see. 

Given how many movies have been released on streaming services or to theaters in the course of the year, we decided to look back at some of the best movies of 2021 and where you are currently able to see them. 

In the Heights

Focusing on a large ensemble cast, In the Heights is a perfect ode to one’s community as well as chasing your goal in life. 

The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch is an endearing love letter to a bygone era of journalism, complete with Anderson’s famous unique style and imagery. 

The Power of the Dog

Complemented by a tight, ambiguous script and some of the best performances you’ll see from all of the actors involved, this is the type of revisionist Western that we hope to see more of in the future. 


It’s huge, bold, wonderfully designed, and does an amazing job of introducing the cinematic world of Dune to Herbert’s longtime fans and those who have never read the book.
