Film Fight 2021: June

For the June Film Fight, we have 7 new(ish) films.

The Father

Shiva Baby

Awake

Mogul Mowgli

Little Joe

A Quiet Place Part 2

Parallel

The June Winner

There are several strong candidates here, but I think it has to be The Father. Strong performances and direction, good concept, and left me in tears.

Film Fight 2021: May

Fairly big month, with 12 films for May.

Nomadland

Stowaway

The Mauritanian

Cherry

Mortal Kombat

Sound of Metal

Boss Level

Without Remorse

The Woman In The Window

Shirley

Oxygen

Army Of The Dead

The May Winner

Some pretty solid films this month but the clear winner for me is Nomadland, a beautifully shot, fantastically performed masterpiece.

Film Fight 2021: April

For April’s Film Fight, we have 9 films.

Concrete Cowboy

Chaos Walking

News of the World

The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things

Run

Promising Young Woman

Nobody

Proxima

Thunder Force

The April Winner

An easy one: Promising Young Woman has the story and style to take it here, and a better than average shot at film of the year.

Film Fight 2021: March

For March’s Film Fight we have 9 films.

Coming 2 America

Moxie

Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar

Kajillionaire

Dead Pigs

Judas And The Black Messiah

Fire Will Come

Bad Trip

Bacurau

The March Winner

A genuinely difficult month to pick. While Barb & Star is the best comedy I’ve seen in ages, the real contenders are Judas & The Black Messiah and Dead Pigs. I think Judas & The Black Messiah edges it simply because if I had to pick one to watch again soon, it’d be that.

Film Fight 2021: February

Eight films for February’s Film Fight…

Possessor

Bliss

Greenland

Malcolm & Marie

The White Tiger

Portrait Of A Lady On Fire

I Care A Lot

Escape From Pretoria

The February Winner

A tough call. Malcolm & Marie would take it most months, but I think the winner is Possessor. Some of those images will stay with me for a very long time.
