Movies I Watched In 2022

Otherwise known as the year I developed an unhealthy attachment to Lydia Tár and Benoit Blanc.


Tár' Is the Movie of 2022. Here's Why. - The Ringer

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Tár? Are you talking about the film that made me fall head over heels in love with cinema? My God, this was PERFECT. It’s everything I have ever wanted in a film. The only thing I don’t like about this movie is that I can never see it for the first time again.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Knives Out 2 Review: 'A Glass Onion' Is Bigger and Better

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Glass Onion? Do you mean the film that is my entire personality at the moment? This film tricked the hell out of me and I LOVED every second of it. Everything about it screams masterpiece, and when I watched it again I assumed I was going to figure out Rian Johnson’s editing techniques that caused me to not see the obvious, and oh boy was I wrong. Also, Benoit Blanc is a legend, and I want to be him when I grow up

White Noise

White Noise (2022) - IMDb

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Gave me Don’t Look Up vibes.

Notes On A Scandal

Movie of the Week: 'Notes on a Scandal' | Art House Film Wire

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Went into this expecting the taboo trope but walked away very disturbed (in a good way, I really enjoyed this film) and in awe of Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett’s performances.

The Inspection

The Inspection' Star Jeremy Pope: The Film Was Most Difficult Role –  Deadline

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The way this film deals with homophobia and masculinity resonated with me.

The Wonder

The Wonder' review: Florence Pugh pursues an enigma - Los Angeles Times

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Overall I enjoyed this movie, but I wasn’t expecting it to be creepy. It was hard to follow at times, but the last 30 minutes really made up for that. Florence Pugh was amazing, as per usual. Still not sure about my thoughts on the way the movie began and ended. Also, that fourth wall break scared me.

Marriage Story

Marriage Story (2019) - IMDb

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Noah Baumbach yelled cut, but Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver heard act like rent is due.

Black Panther Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' reviews are coming in: Here's what critics  are saying so far -

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I have never felt this level of emotion while watching MCU content since Wandavision. Words cannot describe how much I adore this film

Don’t Worry Darling

Don't Worry Darling (2022) - IMDb

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Hot take: I think this was one of the best films of the year. I am a sucker for dark twists, and I particularly loved this one because it was very distressing. I kind of went into this with no prior knowledge (minus the press tour drama), but I like it. Is it perfect? no, but I don’t find it to be unwatchable.

House Of Gucci

I will never understand why Lady Gaga did not receive an Academy Award nomination for this role.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Was it perfect? No. Did it make me cry? Yes.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

There was a lot of sabotaging going on.

When Daniel Craig started speaking in that southern accent, I knew I was going to love this film.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It’s madding how I fell even more in love with Wanda when she viciously tore people apart. I probably should be concerned about that…..

As a Frozen stan, I can admit they went hard with We Don’t Talk About Bruno, and I like it more than Let It Go.
