Thursday Movie Picks - 2021 Releases
It's another year of Thursday Movie Picks over at Wandering Through The Shelves! As of me writing this, Wanderer only has a preliminary schedule out for 2022, but I'm sure by the time I actually post this it will be final. Either way, check out her blog and join the fun. Today's theme is 2021 releases, and I'm going with my top 3 favorite films of the year.
1) The Power of the Dog - Benedict Cumberbatch is so good in this movie that I can barely wrap my head around it. On top of that, it has great performances by my girl Kirsten Dunst, Kodi Smit-McGee and Jessie Plemmons, and is beautifully directed by Jane Campion. Please give this all the Oscars
2) Dune - I went into Dune having not read the books nor seen the earlier film, and I was just hoping I'd like it. I came out loving it. I can't wait for part two, I can't wait for this to be back on HBO max so I can watch it again. It's amazing.
3) Nine Days - This is easily the most underrated film of the year. Winston Duke plays a man who interviews souls hoping for a chance to be born. It's beautiful, and poignant, and I cried and cried. Please watch this if you haven't yet.
