Edgar Wright watched a movie a day in 2021: here’s the list


Edgar Wright has curated a list of 20 movies to watch on the Peacock streaming service in the days leading up to Halloween.

Despite the fact that he had not one but two movies out in 2021, director Edgar Wright made a vow to watch a movie a day this year and almost made good. In the end, he was thirty-five movies shy but decided to share his complete list on Twitter nevertheless. Check out his full list of films below:

It’s always interesting to see what a guy like Edgar Wright watches in his downtime. The list is pretty eclectic, with him keeping up on most new releases, including Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Matrix Resurrections, Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, and more. But, what’s intriguing is the fact that Wright also included a movie that hasn’t come out yet – Top Gun: Maverick. He also included some off-kilter choices, such as the Tsui Hark Jean-Claude Van Damme outing Knock Off (1998), although that can perhaps be explained but the fact that the score for the film was by none other than Sparks, a band he loves so much he made a movie about them (The Sparks Brothers).

Now that the year is drawing to a close, I expect to see many such lists, and truth be told, I’m bummed that I’ve never stuck to making a viewing diary of my own. As the managing editor of JoBlo (and one of its critics), I watch a ton of stuff, and every year I try to commit to keeping a running tab but never make it. I bet I probably watched roughly a movie a day in 2021, but who knows. I’d probably be too embarrassed to show a full list of what I watched to anyone, so good on Wright for showing his.

Watch Last Night in Soho here and The Sparks Brothers here.
