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.
Everything Everywhere All at Once – An astounding and refreshing A24 sci-fi dark comedy starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu.
The Tragedy of Macbeth – The classic Shakespearean drama is given a fresh coat of paint in this modern interpretation. Directed by Joel Coen, the elite cast of Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, and Brendan Gleeson are given plenty of room to bring this story to life in the streaming era.
Blade Runner – The Final Cut – With impressive visuals and an otherworldly synth score, Blade Runner The Final Cut is an amazing genre mash-up of neo-noir, sci-fi, and drama brought to life by a stellar cast.
Spencer – A dramatic and painful fable about Princess Diana’s time with the royal family and how crushing the weight of family history can be. Pablo Larraín directs the Kristen Stewart and the supporting cast to near perfection.
EMMA (2020) – A remarkably funny and accessible adaptation of a classic Jane Austen novel. Anya Taylor-Joy stars in this smart and enjoyable 2 hour experience.
The Last Duel – a period piece drama from Ridley Scott, #TheLastDuel is a bold and exciting film.
My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To – As incredibly thought provoking as it is claustrophobic, My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To is well worth the rental price.
Pig – another brilliant film from Neon studios, Pig stars Nicolas Cage in one of his best roles of the past few years. A surprisingly deep and well written story that stay on your mind for days afterward. Don’t let this one pass you by.
The Green Knight – An epic story based on the original ancient poem, David Lowry brings the tale of the Green Knight to the silver screen in stunning fashion.
