Recap: 2022 Vol 1

It’s the middle of summer and that is prime box office season. 2022 is the year we all get to return to the theater, just like Tom Cruise in this random-ass out-of-touch tweet from a few years ago. So far 2022 has had a decent showing, with plenty of movies waiting in the wings to finally make their debut on the silver screen. Here is a list of every movie I’ve seen released in 2022. Click on each title to see the full review if available. 

14. Morbius

It’s ‘Mobrin’ time.

13. Moonfall

Ridiculously cheese and schlocky, Moonfall is near the bottom of the barrel.

11. X

I didn’t end up writing a review for X because I got too distracted with everything else going on that month but it was a decent horror movie. TI West definitely has potential as a director and horror genre contributor. I think he’d do well with an adaptation from Stephen King or Joe Hill.

10. The Adam Project

While I can’t say if I watched this for the show or if I watched it after the show, I can say that I enjoyed this Netflix movie more than I thought I would. It’s decent, but not enough to break past the average score of 71.

9. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

I have a feeling when I make the end-of-year recap, this one won’t even be in the top 10. This is not a great movie and really doesn’t deserve to be as high as it is.

8. Uncharted

I’m sitting here in June and I cannot remember for the life of me why I liked this movie as much as I did. I have a strong suspicion that if I watched it again right now, I would be way harsher with my scoring.

7. Doctor Strange and The Multiverse of Madness

While Multiverse of Madness was as close to a horror movie in the MCU as we’ll ever get, it just didn’t have enough oomph behind it to make a lasting impression on me or anybody I’ve talked with.

6. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Definitely one of the more ridiculous movies of the year, this wasn’t even on my radar in 2021. It was a pleasant surprise but I have a feeling if I watched it again, the novelty would wear off.

4. The Northman

Bloody Brillaint

3. The Batman


2. Everything Everywhere All At Once

Everything Everywhere All At Once is without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable moviegoing experiences I’ve had in a very long time.

1. The Tragedy of Macbeth

Beautiful, detailed, and classic. Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand are modern treasures. While it technically released in 2021, it wasn’t available to stream until 2022 so I’m putting it here and there’s nothing you can do about it, nerd.
