The Best Movies of 2022

As we enter year three of the Covid-19 pandemic, movies are in a weird place. The theatrical-exclusive is becoming increasingly rare, as more and more films end up going directly to streaming, simultaneously streaming and in theaters, or on one of many streaming services after a 45-day exclusive run in theaters. Whatever the case, there are still lots of movies coming out to be excited about, and the only way to ensure that we’ll keep getting more and more is to go see them. So, whether you’re willing to head out to your local theater or you’re just going to wait to rent or stream at home, the best thing you can do is know what’s coming out and when.

Luckily, 2022 has a lot of good stuff on the horizon. From horror to comedy to superheroes to action, a lot of really innovative movies and talented filmmakers will be putting their stuff on display. Seriously—from stuff like the world-bending Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to the much-awaited Knives Out 2 and even a brand new Scorsese movie, there’s a ton of stuff that we’ve got our eyes on. And, hell, there have already even been a handful of movies that will remain on this list all year long.

Last year’s version of this list was a little screwy—we ended up counting movies like Promising Young Woman, Nomadland, and Judas and the Black Messiah, all of which were technically 2021 releases but were also nominated for last year’s Oscars (due to Covid-19, the deadline was pushed back). It was an odd situation where “Oscar-contending” films were released in the early part of the year. This year, we’re sticking just to the films that are in the next comming up to Gangubai Kathiawadi Kijk.

A little weird! But mostly just semantics. Anyway, here are the movies we already love in 2022—and a bunch more that we’re super eager to check: Encanto Kijk

The new Scream – the fifth in the slasher whodunit series, had a lot working against it. It’s been more than a decade since Scream 4 hit theaters, and in the time since, Wes Craven—who directed every prior movie in the series—died. Another sequel could’ve been a disaster. Luckily, Scream was made by directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin with the main goal of being something Craven would be proud of—and they achieved that mission. Legacy cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette are joined by exceptional newcomers like Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, and Jenna Ortega, for a movie that’s entertaining and fun, but most importantly just feels like a Scream movie. Scream 6 has already been ordered, and to that we say: Kijk Uncharted Film Online NL

Jackass forever – The guys Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, et cetera—may have gotten older, but the fun, thankfully, remains the same. jackass forever is the high-quality lowbrow humor that fans of this franchise have been loving for 20+ years (even longer if you count the original MTV series). And as long as these guys want to keep taking part in this madness, we’ll be watching.

Kimi – The term “Hitchcockian” gets thrown around far too often, but one filmmaker who can actually try to be like the master of suspense and come through with 100% success is the great Steven Soderbergh. Sodey teams up with Zoë Kravitz for a fantastic thriller that’s got a simple, premise: basically a modern version of Rear Window. And it crushes it.

I Want You Back – I Want You Back is fairly standard stuff for a rom-com, but it’s got a wildly charismatic cast, led by a pair of great leads (Charlie Day and Jenny Slate) and fun supporting players (Gina Rodriguez, Manny Jacinto, and Scott Eastwood). The movie zigs a little bit from the standard formula along the way, and ultimately proves to be a worthy comfort movie for anyone who needs one.

The Batman – We’ve seen lots of Batman before, but The Batman is hoping to be something different. We’ve got a new Dark Knight in Robert Pattinson, an actor known to take huge risks. We’ve got a super cool Catwoman in Zoë Kravitz, a Zodiac Killer-esque Riddler played by Paul Dano, and a totally unrecognizable Colin Farrell in a brand new take on the Penguin. Director Matt Reeves has helmed more than a few good movies, and seems to have his hand on the wheel for this one. Time will tell!

Fresh – Sebastian Stan is having himself a year. While he’s currently grinding everyone’ gears as the boorish rocker Tommy Lee in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy, soon he’ll be seen as a charming-on-the-surface-but-with-some-dark-secrets boyfriend of Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) in Fresh, which will land directly on Hulu. The movie earned raves out of Sundance and should be widely-watched upon its release due to that buzz.

Deep Water – The erotic thriller is back? The erotic thriller is back! Based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith, Deep Water finds former real-life couple Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas as a married couple who fall out of love with other and begin playing mind games—with deadly consequences. Sounds like an absolutely perfect way to spend an early Saturday afternoon, and since the movie launches on Hulu, you’ll be able to do just that.
