Let’s re introduce you to 10 Great Movies You Missed In 2022. The reason I used the word “reintroduce” is because there’s every possibility that might have had of most of the movies we’re about to mention below
10 Great Movies You Missed In 2022
1. Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio
One thing I admire about Netflix’s movies is that for every disposable would-be blockbuster they make, they also find the time to greenlight expensive passion projects. Pinocchio ranks among the best movies they’ve ever made.
It’s an animated movie, the story is round A father’s wish magically brings a wooden boy to life in Italy, giving him a chance to care for the child. However, the two of them have to struggle to find a place for themselves as Italy becomes embroiled in fascism.
Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio It’s such an interesting movie with a very deep emotional dramatic twist if by the time the credits roll, you’re not wiping away a tear, you’re stronger than me.
2. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
After its first viewing, Glass Onion was entertaining but the true genius of Rian Johnson’s movie comes with the second viewing, where you can pick up on all the little hints and easter eggs he’s sprinkled throughout the film.
The story is centered around a Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.
3. The Menu
The Menu is one of the only Oscar-caliber Indies that made real money theatrically. The story focuses on a young couple who visits an exclusive destination restaurant on a remote island where the acclaimed chef has prepared a lavish tasting menu. It’s an American comedy horror film directed by Mark Mylod, written by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy, based on an original story.
In case you not aware Todd Field doesn’t make many movies, but when he does, you can usually rely on it being a masterpiece. Tár is a 2022 psychological drama film written and directed by Todd Field and starring Cate Blanchett. Blanchett plays Lydia Tár.
It’s a story about a renowned musician Lydia Tár is days away from recording the symphony that will elevate her career. When all elements seem to conspire against her, Lydia’s adopted daughter Petra becomes an integral emotional support for her struggling mother.
Many have issues getting over Tom Hanks’ over-the-top performance as a demonic Colonel Tom Parker. I must say, Baz Luhrman’s Elvis is a mixed bag. In case you don’t know Elvis is a 2022 biographical drama film directed by Baz Luhrmann and written by Luhrmann, Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce, and Jeremy Doner.
The story is about a singer named Elvis Presley and how he uses his fame to highlight racism within the country.
My only real complaint is that I wish the film were longer, as 159 minutes feels almost inadequate to tell such an epic tale.
6. Avatar: The Way of Water
To be sincere everyone wants to pretend that Avatar: The Way of Water is a disappointment, with mixed reviews, but here’s the thing – the box office is incredible. The fact is, it’s a visual wonder of this movie is unlike any you’ve ever seen, with next-level 3D technology.
I envy how they’ve been able to always keep going, am talking about James Cameron teams they never settle for anything less than perfection or near it. This movie is like every other James Cameron movie, it’s incredibly consistent at the box office.
Although the story is somewhat thin, it’s still one of the most immersive films ever made.
7. Everything Everywhere All At Once
I Think this is one Amongst the first of it kind a martial arts-infused multi-universe epic movie title Everything Everywhere All At Once. This movie is packed with dazzling fight scenes and a career-best performance by the fabulous Michelle Yeoh.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is an American absurdist dramedy film written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. It’s a fiction story of a Chinese immigrant gets unwillingly embroiled in an epic adventure where she must connect different versions of herself in the parallel universe to stop someone who intends to harm the multiverse.
Before we forget this movie also gave Ke Huy Quan (Short Round from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) the comeback role of a lifetime.
8. The Northman
It’s safe to say this is an epic the likes of which we’ve never seen. While the movie is meant for the big screen, it’s now streaming, so if you haven’t caught it yet, do yourself a favour and check this out.
It is an Adventure story of Prince Amleth, whose father was killed and mother was abducted by his ruthless uncle. However, the journey takes him through twists which unravel a dark truth about his family.
The Northman is a 2022 American epic historical action thriller film directed by Robert Eggers, who co-wrote the screenplay with Sjón.
9. The Banshees of Inisherin
If Top Gun: Maverick was about the pure, crowd-pleasing joy of cinema, this film from Martin McDonagh aims to remind you how gut-wrenching it can be.
The Banshees of Inisherin is a 2022 black tragicomedy film directed, written, and co-produced by Martin McDonagh.
This movie is a crowd pleaser, believe me you will be thrilled and somewhat excited after seeing this movie so go check it out.
10. Top Gun Maverick
What’s fascinating about this film is that it’s now a front-runner for the Oscars, but clearly was made with no awards agenda whatsoever. It was the exact opposite of Oscar bait.
The story is centered around the lead character maverick and how his thirty years of service leads Maverick to train a group of elite TOPGUN graduates to prepare for a high-profile mission while Maverick battles his past demons.
