Best in 2022 is the week-long celebration of ComingSoon in the entertainment that made this past year so memorable.
In my first year working for an entertainment website, I managed to watch more movies than I usually do. I will definitely make this a habit, because it helps me fully realize how much is outside of my usual tastes. Plus, I love the movie theater experience.
Here are 10 movies I enjoyed in 2022.
The Menu is a delightfully dark look at everything from pop culture to bad critics, served up by a wonderfully unsettling Ralph Fiennes. The entire cast is amazing without ever being the same in a way that keeps you watching, making the last third of the film a fascinating journey throughout. This is the kind of movie I never got to see in theaters before working here, but am I glad I did.
Everything I knew about Elvis Presley before seeing it Elvis from Lilo & Stitch. With such fresh eyes, I went to the film without preconceptions or knowledge. I was in awe of the humorous style that Baz Luhrmann brought to the table and the dedication that Austin Butler put into portraying the “King of Rock n’ Roll.”
I will also not mention how interesting the viewing experience is Elvis with my grandmother, as she talks about how she remembers all the events of the film and how precise certain moments are.
It’s simple, Turned Red is the best Pixar movie ever Coco, and one of the best films from the studio overall. Generational trauma can be a heavy topic, but Turned Red his enthusiastic nature will not be lost. It looks amazing, is full of great comedy, and has a real beating heart at its center. Plus, it’s set in 2002 Toronto, which is pretty fun to watch as a Canadian millennial myself. Any quality movie that highlights Daisy Mart and the SkyDome used to have a place in my heart.
7. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Even at the reception Multiverse of Madness seems a bit mixed as of late, I enjoy watching the Doctor Strange link The influence of Sam Raimi is a big part of this, because the terrifying vision managed to squeeze a good part of his style into the first theatrical Marvel Cinematic Universe installment in 2022. The Illuminati and wacky universes it was a lot of fun, but it was Strange’s character himself that always drew me in. Seeing him accept that, despite all his powers, some things that can’t be changed are moving, and I hope we see that development continue in whatever Marvel Strange movie comes out. next time.
6. Avatar: The Way of Water
I couldn’t find the original Avatar to be all memorable as a 13 year old, but The Way of Water did the trick and pulled me into this universe. the Avatar The sequel continues to show just how adept James Cameron is at making entertaining blockbusters after decades of honing his craft. The action is exciting, the visuals are beautiful, and the performances show how dedicated the entire cast is to Cameron’s vision. It’s a truly cinematic experience that deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
5. The Batman
My favorite part of Batman’s character has always been his detective side – an aspect that is underrepresented in the Caped Crusader’s cinematic offerings. The Batman That changes, pitting the incredible Robert Pattinson against Paul Dano’s masterfully deranged Riddler in a battle of brains and brawn. The Riddler is my favorite Batman villain, so I enjoyed watching Dano go off the deep end as Edward Nashton. Here’s hoping he returns in some way in the future. Until then, I can’t wait to see the next case that Pattinson’s Batman faces.
4. One Piece Film: Red
One Piece is one of my favorite things ever, so any theatrical film set in a solid universe gets my attention. The emphasis on the mysterious Shanks and the many emotional beats towards the end make it a One Piece fan dream, even if it’s not technically canon. The unusual character pairings are also fun to watch, because that’s something that only happens in these shows. Movie: RedThe catchy soundtrack (with several songs by the extremely talented singer Ado) was stuck in my head for weeks after seeing it, though that might as well have been because I watched it three times.
3. Top Gun: Maverick
I am narrating a personal satisfying experience I noticed something Top Gun: Maverick with my father, but despite the forward reasoning, Maverick just an amazing blockbuster. Every beat hits exactly where it should, and every flight sequence is nothing short of exhilarating. The drama between the characters had me hooked from the get go and I promise that Maverick will be as good as the legendary film that preceded it. whoever you are, Top Gun: Maverick it’s probably more than worth your time, because it’s a brilliant movie
2. Everything Everywhere Everything at once
Everything Everywhere Everything at Once is a beautiful movie that leaves you feeling more affirmed about life than before you watched it. It ponders the very purpose of life and explores it through excellent action scenes, poignant drama, and, despite the supernatural framing, believable characters you care deeply about.
Ke Huy Quan, in particular, gives an inspiring and impressive performance, but the rest of the cast is no slouch, because they bring such life to the characters and give the film a unique emotional which is core. Everything Everywhere Everything at Once a true work of art and an example of how powerful film can be.
1. Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro
I have a big soft spot for the story Pinocchio since I was a kid, and I think we’ve seen all the interesting twists and turns the classic story could possibly have. Guillermo del Toro proved me wrong, as he explains Pinocchio – set in Italy between the two World Wars – unlike any other version in the best way. All the fairy tale staples are here, but done in new, exciting, and novel ways that remind you why del Toro is considered one of the best in the biz.
The meticulously produced stop-motion animation is breathtaking, making the final product one of the most impressive examples of stop-motion animation ever created. The performances bring to life many of del Toro’s memorable and realistically broken characters, which are further explored through the film’s emotional songs that are narrative tentacles rather than melodic garnishes. In addition, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio has the titular puppet singing a poo-themed parody song about the dictator Benito Mussolini right in front of the fascist. What is better?
