March 2021’s Movie Watch List with Juicy Stats

2021 continues to move a light speed for me. Here we are in April already! As for March, the Oscar nominees were announced making it heavy on the contemporary dramas. As I’ve said in the past, I enjoy the nomination process since it puts plenty of great films on my radar that I would not have watched otherwise. As for what wins, it is a total crap shoot!

Which of the noms did I like? Great question! A lot of homeruns this month! The answers are below…

Baseball time!
These are the “batting stats” compiled for the FIRST TIME watches.  I give each movie a rating out of 5.  4.5 and up are home runs, 4s to 2.5s are hits, 2 and lower are field outs, an 0.5 (did not finish) is a Strike Out.  This tells me how well of a job I’m doing at picking which movies to watch.

Good Movie Average:  14/18 – .777 (Last month: .765)
Home Runs: 5 –City On Fire, Onward, Captain Fantastic, Sound of Metal, The Father
Strikeouts: 1 – Mank


Most Fun First Time Watch: City On Fire
Movie That More People Should See: Away From Her
Most Fun Re-watch: UHF
Most Forgettable: Unhinged
Better Than I Remembered: The Spy Who Loved Me
Not As Good As I Remembered:
The Never Ending Story
The movie I can finally cross off the Bucket-list: Man on Wire
Best performance: Anthony Hopkins, The Father
Most Pleasant Surprise: Onward
Most Disappointing Movie:  Coming 2 America
Best Movie: The Father


    1. Seriously, I could not remember what Unhinged was when I saw it on the list. So, I put it down as the Most Forgettable. When Sarah read this post she asked me, “Which one is Unhinged?” lol, I think I got that one right.

  1. I didn’t manage to finish Mank either and thought I was alone in that, heh. Looks like a month of great choices otherwise. Love Sound of Metal and City on Fire!

      1. It’s not often I give up on a movie completely – I tend to hang on… just so I can tick it off the list. I might go back and finish it, but I’m in no rush!
