"The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience." Another year, another Top 10. After watching over 460 films throughout 2021 (yes I was keeping track on Letterboxd!) it's time to share my final selection of My Top 10 Favorite Films of 2021. I try to watch as much as I can and give myself time to catch up with any extra films at the end of the year, but I also want to make sure I don't forget about some of my favorites from earlier in the year. 2021 was an invigorating and exciting year - with so many ups and downs.

Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo has teased the action thriller pedigree of his upcoming Netflix outing, The Gray Man, comparing the project to one of the most well-regarded examples of the franchise, Michael Mann’s Heat. The Gray Man will see two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, go head-to-head, with Russo reminded of the match-up of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino way back in the 1995 heist flick.

The 2021 adaptation of Dune by director Denis Villeneuve did great at its opening weekend, grossing $100 Million at the domestic box office. Dune’s original adaptation, made in 1984 by David Lynch, however, was met with a series of negative reviews. Frank Herbert, the mastermind and author behind the Dune series, was very content with how Lynch handled the complexities of the world of Arrakis.

Along with The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka, a third spinoff announced for The Mandalorian was Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic, a series expected to follow the character of Cara Dune, played in The Mandalorian by Gina Carano before she was fired for a series of controversial tweets.

She's also frequently collaborated with Terrence Malick, having worked on "The New World" and "The Tree of Life," to name a few. It's a long list of accomplishments, including Martin Scorsese's next film, "The Killers of the Flower Moon."West has brought accuracy and life to several different time periods captured on screen.

It's a well-known fact that the work of the legendary Japanese filmmaker, Akira Kurosawa, had a big influence on "Star Wars." It's not that hard to connect the dots between "Star Wars" and Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel, "Dune," either.
