With 2021 coming to a close, sports fans have a number of great movies to watch and enjoy that were released this year, ranked here by IMDb. Audiences have started racing back into theaters thanks to Spider-Man and the other holiday releases. One of those releases is American Underdog. The Kurt Warner story is just one of many sports movies that have been released this year. While the box office is filled with superheroes, action and a lot of CGI, sports movies are often overlooked.

They may not have lit up the box office, but fans of the genre still have a number of great options to seek out and enjoy over the holiday break and beyond. After all, everybody loves a good underdog story.

The 13 Best Comedy Movies Of 2021 Ranked

Dream Horse

by Liam Gaughan | Slash Film | December 6, 2021

2021 was certainly an unpredictable year for comedy films. Not only were film productions and releases affected by the COVID-19 crisis, but for many, it’s hard to laugh in the face of an ongoing pandemic.

As such, the comedy films of 2021 were an interesting batch that covered many different genres. Some of the biggest hits of the year were action-comedies that seamlessly combined thrills and laughs; while films like “Red Notice,” “The Suicide Squad,” and “Nobody” have more serious elements, there’s certainly a large amount of comedy in both. After a challenging year, audiences enjoyed these humorous crowd pleasers.

In addition, the prominence of streaming services and simultaneous distribution strategies has allowed many smaller and independent films to gain a larger audience. Between Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, Peacock, Paramount+, and Shudder, film fans have more freedom than ever to explore a wide range of comedic films. It’s been particularly interesting to see how indie artists have responded to the pandemic with innovative projects, and many of 2021’s comedy films are expected to be major awards contenders.

The Reason I Jump and Dream Horse

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 7, 2021

‘The Week’ UK has recently published their best drama films of 2021 and I noticed not one, but two that Damian Lewis either starred in or advocated for charity in this top 35 list.

Back on January 25 of this year we reported that Damian conducted an online talk with Director Jerry Rothwell, author David Mitchell (who co-translated Higashida’s book) and producer Stevie Lee for an illuminating conversation about the making of the extraordinary documentary film, The Reason I Jump. Ticket proceeds of the virtual event went to the charity 92nd Street Y to help sustain their community organization and support the creation of new, online educational programming in literature, culture and the arts, as they were facing tremendous financial loss due to CoVid-19.  You can view photos of that online event in our Gallery here.

Viewers from Blaenavon might just recognise some local landmarks, or even themselves.

Dream Horse follows Jan Vokes, from Cefn Fforest, who brought together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal, named Dream Alliance, raising him on an allotment and going on to win the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow Racecourse in 2009.

Filming took place in Blaenavon in May 2019, with many residents taking up the call to appear as extras in the film.

Following the release of the film, a number of residents have shared their memories of being involved in the production. Here are just a few.
