Although movie dates are often moved around, the year 2020 was exceptional. The avid movie fans, like myself, were left heartbroken when the theaters had to close down. The pandemic has caused the much-awaited movies to be pushed back by a whole year. With things seemingly under control, people are expecting to be in theaters in 2021 to watch their top 10 most anticipated Movies of 2021.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2021
While thrilled at the prospect of getting to watch new movies, I am still a bit skeptical about the pandemic. Others who are cautious like me persevere by simply waiting to watch their beloved movies in the comfort of their homes. That’s what my big TV screen and the Spectrum internet plans are for.

It is better to stay home and wait for the movies to become available online so, you can watch them on your big TV screens. Although this doesn’t compare to the cinematic experience, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Last week I too dialed Spectrum phone number so I could upgrade my TV plans. Now I have a great variety of content for the whole family!
