Hopefully, in 2021 things will start going back to normal, but it will be a slow process. Cinemas are still mostly closed around the world, so a lot of these movies will be seen at home. And as many of you know, a lot of 2020 movies were pushed back to 2021 and 2022, so some films that were on my Most Anticipated Movies of 2020 list will re-appear here.
First up, here are some honorable mentions: Black Widow, Eternals, Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It, Blonde, Don’t Look Up, and EncantoContinue reading “Most Anticipated Movies of 2021”

Beautiful Boy surrounds the struggle that Nic Sheff (Timothée Chalamet) with drug addiction and how that affects not only himself, but his family, most noticeably his father (Steve Carell), who is determined to do all that he can to help him.
The performances from Chalamet and Carell were extraordinary. You felt what the characters felt, small moments of joy, but mostly anger and frustration. Chalamet really is a rising star, with his performance in Call Me By Your Name last year and this, there will undoubtedly be an Oscar on his mantle sometime soon. Really all of the cast were giving great performances. The film doesn’t gloss over the effects of drug use like many other films do and it takes time to teach the audience that drug addiction is a disease. The film didn’t hit as hard as it could’ve for me though on this subject.
Call Me By Your Name is directed by Luca Guadagnino and stars Timothée Chalamet as Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver. The film takes place in Northern Italy during the summer of 1983 and focuses on the budding romance that happens between Elio and Oliver.
