Best Movies in the Theatres Right Now

Below are some of the most thrilling movies this year to watch;

No time to die

No Time to Die is neither lean nor mean; it’s a hard-working attempt to reconcile the Bond rituals with a series-finale emotional weight that these movies have been accumulating (with mixed success) since 2006.

Both technologically innovative and narratively faithful to the original text, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is bolstered by its seamless special effects and starpower above all else.

Bergman Island

There is no place on Earth tied more firmly to a filmmaker than Fårö is to Ingmar Bergman. One cannot venture through the small island without being reminded of him at every turn.

Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy

To tell a story that’s been told before, Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel does something a little familiar and a little different.

The French Dispatch

As was the case with 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch is a story within a story or, in this case, multiple stories within a story, and there are stories within those stories as well.

  • Release Date: October 22, 2021
