This is an A to Z listing of the best films on planet earth in 2021, in our opinion. It takes a great cast of actors to make a great movie. It takes a great script writer and a good story to tell. It takes great producers, directors and insightful investors - and it takes courage in the final edit - to keep the audience sitting on the edge of their seat, instead of nodding off.


If you are wondering where the creative energies will go in 2021, so are we. The list of contenders coming to theaters is impressive in number, despite Covid19:

Well, that's it, one heck of a lot of potentially superb entertainment. But of these only a handful will make it as top movies and only one will be the best.


Where appropriate we also quote and reference the views and reviews of others for the purposes of fair comparison.


Sometimes, a film does not make the grade, but is still included to critic where it could have been great, as a guide for directors and producers - but where some things not quite right.
