Here it is! My annual ranking of all the new releases from the previous year! As usual this list is comprised of films that were released in the UK in 2021, so there are some films that were released in other countries in early years. Also, as usual, I didn’t see every film I would have liked to, so here’s a list of films that would have been eligible but that I haven’t seen yet, and that I’m going to try and watch as soon as possible: Nobody, Coda, The Matrix Resurrections, House of Gucci, Minari, The French Dispatch, Pig, No Sudden Move, The Tragedy of Macbeth, Shiva Baby, West Side Story, The Green Knight, Petite Maman, Another Round, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Eternals. Of these, I’m most annoyed I didn’t see Ghostbusters: Afterlife and The French Dispatch in the cinema, they just came out during a particularly busy period for me and I had to choose between them, Last Night in Soho and Dune. I have no excuse for why I haven’t seen Coda, Minari, No Sudden Move, Another Round or The Green Knight, as they are all available for me to stream right goddamn now in my own goddamn home, but I still haven’t done so yet.

Just like March, April just sort of disappeared from under me without anything major really happening. Genuinely I think the most exciting thing that happened was I got a haircut, for the first time since November. What a thrilling life I lead.
April did see the Oscars take place, but I did not. At the time of the ceremony I’d only seen three of the best picture nominees and very few of the films nominated for acting or indeed many other awards. I’d caught all the animated feature nominees, but that wasn’t exactly an exciting race this year. I recorded the ceremony, heard it was terrible, and so haven’t watched a single moment or highlight reel. If there’s some aspect I should check out, please let me know, but otherwise it’ll get deleted from my SkyQ box soon. Anyway, let’s cease dwelling on what I didn’t watch, and get onto what I did, shall we?
