I actually really enjoy putting this “caught up with” list together each year (ok most years) mainly because I know people will wonder how I got to that year without seeing some truly classic and quite frankly outstanding films! While I call it a top 10, its not put in any particular order and has been filtered down from 40 that I thought were worthy to be included in the long list!
Prepare to be utterly amazed with some of my first time viewings in 2021 …
2021 was another strange year with the cinemas closed for a while again, so attempting to watch new films and in particular those from 2021 was quite the challenge. I feel as though this list isn’t maybe as “good” as some lists but I have had to go by the films that I have seen and I might have missed some but here it goes! Sorry, not sorry that this was a great year for musicals!
With cinemas being closed for the majority of the year new 2021 films were also released to different streaming services as well, all of which are possibilities for my 2021 top 10 lists! Cinema list of 2021 HERE and you can also see all 2021 films HERE.
As always though I do get better at picking films to watch and knowing that I will probably not like certain films, although some have certainly slipped through the net. I would love to actually blame the lack of releases at the cinema for a couple of them, but as you will see I also made bad at home choices. Hey, a new film is a new film though right?
Considering the way 2020 went with the cinema closed for most of the year, even when they reopened the new films being offered were few and far between. Although I cannot really complain too much with getting to see all three Lord of the Rings extended editions twice something I had wanted to do for many years. So this year I have had to combine the small number of cinema films which include some 2019 films but due to UK release dates qualify for my top 10 best films of 2020 list! Then combined with films then added to streaming sites and catching up with some before the end of the year. At one point I was unsure if I could even pick a top 10, so it could be my most interesting yet!

2019 has been a very high quality year for film and I feel this has been the toughest list to put together in the whole ten years of Let’s Go The Movies. Which is certainly a very good and amazing thing for cinema and films. Not only have this years best come from cinema releases but Netflix have really come into the picture with some incredible films with amazing performances. With my list it might feel a little bit all over the place with some of the films that are on it due to UK release dates, but also take into consideration that I have also been lucky enough to see some previews of films as well.

I had 22 films that were on my list for Best Films of 2019 and it has been very tough to knock that down to the 10 that have then made up this list. Just missing out (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Klaus, Judy, Crawl)
This year has been a very good year for films and I do always try to pick better and ensure I don’t go and see the mindless comedies that I know I will not enjoy. But it is not possible to fully do that and here are the ten worst films that I managed to see in 2019! This is both cinema released and then films I have caught up with on streaming services Netflix and Amazon Prime, also on flights (a great place to catch up with new releases that you might have missed).

Throughout 2018 I managed to catch up with 48 older films and have decided to put together a top 10 list out of those films. You will be probably be quite surprised that some of these films I did not see until recently as some quality films. Always good to set yourself a challenge to catch up. I am happy that I managed to get 48 first time watches of films that does not include new cinema releases. With the films I have chosen for my top 10 list I pretty much was left wondering why I had never seen the film before!
G-228 Max (Russell Crowe) enjoys the company of his supposed long-lost cousin Christie Roberts (Abbie Cornish) in A GOOD YEAR.
Here are the 10 films that have made my list (in no particular order) . . .
I have seen some fantastic films during 2018 and had a list of 22 films to dwindle down to make my top 10 best films list! Which was certainly a good thing but also some tough decisions. These are the films I went to see at the cinema in 2018 (click here) and these are 2018 films (click here) that I watched over the full year.
Each year I find this list harder to put together considering I feel I make better choices when it comes to which films that I find myself watching. But obviously you are still going to come across some pretty awful films. I would just like to put a reminder on that this is obviously just my opinion! (You can check which films I saw at the cinema during 2018 here and 2018 films tagged here). This all done by UK release date as well!
Here are the films that made it onto my top 10 worst of 2018 list . . .
Always a fun and enjoyable task is looking back at everything I managed to see at the theatre (read this) during the course of a year and putting together my favourite 10 shows! It becomes increasing difficult each year and that is only a good thing as just shows that the standard of theatre is so high!
Here we go then my 10 favourite shows of 2018 . . .
