Free films featured prominently in this year’s Top 10 with three entries, but there wasn’t an identifiable theme for the rest.

This article was actually more popular in 2021 than when it was first published in 2020, when it was only #10. Cap Stewart explains how we’ve only recently discovered that C.S. Lewis – for his own private amusement because he seems to have never told anyone – linked each of his famous Narnia books to one of the 7 planets as medieval cosmology understood them.
