Edgar Wright's Quarantine Watch List Is Full Of Great Titles You Might Want To Check Out (If You Can)

Most of us have been stuck inside for the entire year, which means we've had extra time to watch stuff. We here at /Film have been running a feature called The Quarantine Stream, wherein the staff takes turns writing about the films and TV shows we've been enjoying as we attempt to survive 2020. And now that copycat Edgar Wright has stolen our idea! Okay, that's not true at all. But Wright did unveil a list of titles he's watched since lockdown started in March, and it's pretty great.

It's been a weird year, to say the least. I watch movies for a living, and I managed to catch 400 films this year so far. But they weren't 400 new films – lord, know. They were a grab-bag of new titles, old titles, and other oddities that I found the time to enjoy as I spent almost the entire year indoors. You've likely been trapped at home as well, and if so, you probably took advantage of this time to plop down in front of your TV or computer and watch movies either for entertainment or for a nice distraction from the horrors of 2020.

Filmmaker Edgar Wright did the same, and he provided Total Film with a list of 200 movies he managed to watch since March. Edgar Wright's quarantine watch list is below, and it's loaded with great stuff, be it familiar titles or obscurities that will have some people scratching their heads. And, because Wright is someone with insider access, he also has a few titles on here that haven't even been released yet, like Top Gun: Maverick, and, of course, Wright's own Last Night in Soho, which was supposed to open this year but got pushed to April 2021.

It's a fun, eclectic list, and it will no doubt inspire some to search out several of the titles.
