Netflix announced in January that they will release a new original film every week in 2021. They’ve kept their word for months now, and they’re delivering on it. There’s something for everyone in this collection: mystery, romance, humor, horror, you name it.
Plus, all of your favorite celebrities, like Leonardo DiCaprio and Zendaya, as well as Eric Andre, Octavia Spencer, and others. So, where do you start? Here are our picks for the best Netflix original movies of 2021.
VIVO is an exhilarating story about gathering your courage, finding family in unlikely friends, and the belief that music can open you to new worlds. On behalf of his master Andrés (Buena Vista Social Club’s Juan De Marcos), a one-of-a-kind kinkajou (voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda) travels on an amazing musical odyssey to deliver a love song to Marta (sung by Gloria Estefan).
Just a guess, but I believe you. Yes, you! I bet you would be better off having seen a gorgeous, vibrantly colored animated musical starring Gloria Estefan and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Again, it’s only a guess.
Army of the Dead
If you a fan of zombies, you should definitely watch Army of the Dead, directed by Zack Snyder. This movie is about a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a squad of mercenaries decides to take the ultimate risk and enter the quarantine zone in order to pull off the biggest robbery ever attempted.
This is a zombie heist film in which a group of adventurers scheme to loot a Las Vegas casino during a zombie epidemic. It stars Dave Bautista and Tig Notaro in the role of a tough helicopter pilot, and it sounds totally wild, but I tell you what. It’s well worth a watch.

If there’s any doubt, things spin out of control, resulting in a suspenseful thriller that will undoubtedly go down in history as one of Gyllenhaal’s most unforgettable performances. The Guilty will be available on Netflix on October 1st.

Inside is a comic masterpiece and a somber look at what will undoubtedly be one of the most momentous events of our time, filled with comments on quarantine, internet culture, and the everyday pangs of what 2020 looked like.
