Ranking the Shows of 2021: From Worst to Best

For the first time, I am also ranking the shows I’ve watched this year considering that I’ve seen so many it feels right to do so. So, here goes nothing. Enjoy!

10. The Wheel of Time

Watch The Wheel Of Time - Season 1 | Prime Video

This show really wasn’t very good at all. I came in halfway through after my sister had binge-watched the first four episodes and found it entertaining enough to intrigue me to check it out. Unfortunately, the second half of the show was the worst half and it was quite agitating if I’m being honest. But I did enjoy watching it with my sister. We laughed through most of it and yes, I was mostly watching it for the plot.

The plot:

The Wheel of Time': Daniel Henney Teases a Scary Journey Through the Ways,  More on Lan's Culture in Episode 7 | Decider

But on a more serious note, I don’t recommend this series, that’s for sure.

⭐⭐

9. The Bad Batch

Star Wars: The Bad Batch (TV Series 2021– ) - IMDb

I wanted to love this show and at times it gave me plenty of things to enjoy but this series just felt lazily written more often than not. With convenient obstacles allowing predictable new stages of this show to take place, I was more exasperated than happy while watching this cartoon.

But the animation was beautiful.

Ranking the Movies of 2021: From Worst to Best

It’s been a busy movie year. I’ve seen a bunch of movies, some that have been legitimately enjoyable while there have been a few stumbles along the way. Now it’s the end of 2021 and it’s time to share my ranking. Enjoy!

32. The Matrix: Resurrections

The Matrix Resurrections' Review: The Wachowskis Were the Oracles All Along  | WIRED

When I saw the official teaser for The Matrix: Resurrections I wasn’t expecting the best movie ever but I wasn’t expecting a movie that bad.

A few days before the fourth installment hit HBO Max I watched The Matrix with my sister (it was only my second viewing… and it was awesome… again) so I was fresh into this story. Then I watched Resurrections and my head practically exploded.

It’s so bad and as someone who has never been a fan of this franchise, this movie just seemed even worse than I could’ve imagined. The story is an intriguing concept but poorly executed, Yahya Abdul Mateen II is a TERRIBLE Morpheus, and the actors, set designs, and costumes sometimes feel like a high-budget show on Syfy. It’s that bad.

31. The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad' Isn't a Typical Superhero Movie - The Atlantic

There are people who will say this is one of the best comic book movies they’ve seen. I beg to differ. The Suicide Squad is a ridiculously violent, boring island adventure with a bunch of unlikable characters and maybe two standouts. And yeah the villain was actually intimidating…for two seconds. Then he was killed in such a ridiculous fashion that I was left just staring at the screen like, “Really.”

But I’m glad there were people who liked it.

30. In the Heights

In the Heights (2021) - IMDb

In the Heights used to be my least favorite film of the year but there are two films worse than it this year for sure. It’s is still one of the worst musicals I’ve ever seen though.

⭐⭐

29. The Little Things

The Little Things' movie review, Denzel Washington thriller - Los Angeles  Times

I wasn’t expecting this movie to be good but I wasn’t expecting it to be as bad as it was either. I love a good whodunnit movie but this film just didn’t cut it. And its conclusion was infuriating!

⭐⭐
