A Complete List of All the Movies Edgar Wright Has Watched in Quarantine

Edgar Wright's Quarantine Film List
We have all been watching a lot during the COVID quarantine. Edgar Wright has been counting. 

These past months stuck indoors have opened my mind toward a lot of cinema I had shrugged off or avoided over the years. I suddenly had time and came across some hidden gems, some titles I hated, and some stuff that fell somewhere in-between. 

It turns out, I'm not the only one doing this. 

Writer/director Edgar Wright has been watching a few movies a day and compiling a list of what he saw. Total Magazine published the list, and we have it here for you to check out. 

Maybe you have some crossover.

Edgar Wright’s next film, Last Night in Soho, is scheduled to open on April 23, 2021. I hope we are able to see it on time and in cinemas.

Love any of the movies he watched or think everyone should check them out? I want to know about it. 

Tell us about it in the comments.

This article is wrong. You've bolded a bunch of films that he didn't bolden on his list.

Had to be! It did seem suspicious, as a lot of the bolded films are canonical classics a man of his cinematic appetite would have seen ages ago.
