A survey of 2,000 conducted last week asked which movies were “Best of the Year” and more people cited “Shang-Chi: The Legend of the Ten Rings” than any other film on the list.


In fact, four of the top 20 movies of the year featured superhero characters from the same cinematic universe — “Shang-Chi” and “Black Widow,” which were produced by Marvel Studios, and “Spider-Man” and “Venom,” produced by Sony Pictures in association with Marvel.


Netflix dominated the Best TV shows of 2021! Not surprisingly, given its status as an overnight sensation, the Korean dystopian drama “Squid Game” took the No. 1 spot.
