2021 has been a stacked year for films – both theatrically and on streaming. Going back to the cinema to see blockbuster movies was certainly a highlight for many people this year, and many of the award’s favourites for 2021 have come from streaming. Blockbusters that were initially supposed to release last year – like No Time To Die and Dune – smashed the box office, and streaming services like Netflix and HBOMax adopted the cinema/streaming release tactic to get more eyes on movies!
Let us look at this year in movies and find out what Alaisdair and Nick’s highlights (and some lowlights) of 2021 were! BEWARE: some spoilers may lie ahead!
