Top 10 Best Movies of 2022

The year 2022 was a great year for cinema with a plethora of outstanding movies that have been released. From heartwarming dramas to thrilling action films, there was something for everyone in this year's releases. Now that the year has come to an end, it's time to look back and reflect on the best movies of 2022. In this top ten list, let's highlight the cream of the crop, the films that have left a lasting impression on audiences and critics alike.

The movies that have made it to this list have been carefully selected and voted on by you based on their critical acclaim, box office success, and cultural impact. Each film has its own unique story, characters, and themes that have resonated with audiences and made them stand out from the crowd.
The Top Ten
1 The Batman Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman features Robert Pattinson in the lead role, with a star-studded supporting cast including Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Set in a noir-inspired version of Gotham City, the film is a gritty and action-packed exploration of the early years of the Caped Crusader's crime-fighting career.

So right now, at the moment of writing, The Batman is considered the best movie of 2022 on this site. And you know what? Even though it's not quite my favorite movie of the year, this placement is deserved. The Dark Knight might still be my favorite Batman movie, but this doesn't make The Batman 2022 bad at all. In fact, I would say that this is the movie that portrays the character of Batman / Bruce Wayne the most well, on top of doing Catwoman and The Riddler the most well. It also has quite the emotional moment, and an amazing soundtrack. If you want a proof that DC is on fire lately when it comes to film quality, especially when compared to what Marvel has done lately, movies like this and The Suicide Squad are proof of this.

The film, just 4 minutes short of 3 hours (which makes this the longest Batman film of all time), was a truly touching tribute to the characters along with the real cast & the legendary Adam West. It had a heartfelt story & emotion throughout. It was a major hit. Definitely the best of 2022 to date. R.I.P. Adam West (1928-2017).

It was pretty much the best this year to date. A long (2 hour 56 minute) film dedicated to the whole characters along with the cast & the legendary Adam West. So much story & dialogue out, yet a great score & emotion. It stood out over all the other films of 2022. R.I.P. Adam West (1928-2017) & Kevin Conroy (1955-2022).

Wow. Unbelievable. This is an intense film. Robert Pattinson did a great job. Paul Dano did a wickedly insane work as the Riddler! Two big thumbs way up!

2 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

The first movie was good, but felt a little lackluster as a "Sonic" movie. This, however, took great elements from the franchise and had amazing characterization. Here's hoping for the third movie to be even better!

I absolutely LOVE this movie! I watched it on May 17, 2022, a month after its release, and it not only improved the story, but also added new characters just as good as Movie Sonic, with my favorite one being Movie Tails (voiced by his video game counterpart's current voice actress as of 2022, Colleen O'Shaughnessey, aka Colleen Villard). I also loved Movie Knuckles, voiced by Idris Elba. Also, Jim Carrey's performance as Eggman was SPECTACULAR.

I like how they write and make the Sonic Movies. Live-action at its best!

I loved Movie Sonic's pooting dummy he made to trick Donut Lord and Pretzel Lady when he snuck out as Blue Justice!

3 Top Gun: Maverick

When I went to the movie theater I wasn't expecting much but it was a very good picture. I think so good movie and I would suggest and tell other people they should say it.

Top Gun: Maverick is far from a masterpiece, but the action is cool, the movie knows well about planes, and there is an actually good message in here. It could have been even better though. Go watch Cars 3 if you want a better movie about passing the torch to a new generation.

I watched the movie and it was literally the best movie I've ever seen…the sound the music and most of the flying was real plus Tom Cruise was there!

Definitely the best movie of the year, Tom Crusie is a great actor/stuntman. Miles Teller did a great job too. Lots of action and tense moments. I'm glad I got to see this movie in cinemas

4 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

This movie has some of the most creative and coolest action scenes of the MCU, but I wish the story was more emotional, and less messy.

5 Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

This movie goes so hard! Amazing action scenes and animation to go with it, amazing characters, very interesting themes, hilarious in some moments. How is a Puss in Boots sequel so good?!

This is one of the best animated movies I have seen in years. Really hope dreamworks keeps on making movies like this

It's a sequel to a spin-off of one of the greatest franchises of all time.

This is the best movie of the year vote this up!

6 Everything Everywhere All at Once

I laughed, I cried, and I held off going pee for a long time because I didn't want to miss a second. A fantastic film worthy of a best picture nomination.

This is going to win Best Picture. It has to. So much of this film was absolutely incredible. Completely original. Such a breath of fresh air and so beautifully shot and acted. Everything about this movie is amazing...pun intended

This movie is so funny, creative, and emotional. My favorite movie of 2022 so far, and it might be hard to beat.

This is one of the best films to come out in the past 10 years never mind 2022.

7 The Bad Guys

This is the best non Kung Fu Panda or How To Train Your Dragon movie Dreamworks has made since like Rise of the Guardians. In terms of animation and action this movie is absolutely top tier, and it is also really funny, and quite emotional in some moments. It's not particularly amazing or anything, but it's just a really nice movie.

This Movie is really enjoyable from beginning to end.

Simply a generation defining classic movie.

Damn, that wolf is pretty sexy.

8 Jurassic World: Dominion

Fun movie. As good as the others in the franchise. Good special effects as always.

Awesome movie imagine living with dinosaurs in real life?

Baby raptor. Cute little baby raptor.

My brothers like it

9 Thor: Love and Thunder

My wife is fighting cancer. Saw the movie hit me it took me about 2 or 3 days after I seen the movie that I decided at the movie was okay. Cancer is a bad disease and a lot of people handle it different I didn't like the show because I didn't want to see what was going to happen at the end. But after I thought about it I guess that that movie is not going to change cancer and maybe some people might like it her ending. And now my wife fighting cancer and doctors released her at cancer free right now.

I have the same opinion on this movie and Thor Ragnarok, but both in a better AND worse way. Both are extremely fun, and hilarious, and in fact Love and Thunder might be even funnier. However, both also leave a lot of emotional moments aside in exchange of more funny moments. And on one hand, I like how Love and Thunder tries to give us more emotions, but on the other hand, it struggles to maintain this balance of fun and emotion that would make me feel more stuff. Some moments that should be taken seriously aren't and that's sad. It still does have some good emotional moment, and at worse it is a really funny movie. If you want to watch a movie from 2022 for pure fun, go watch Bad Guys though. And if you want a better balance of emotion and humor, I think both Turning Red and especially Everything Everywhere All at Once are better at that.

Best of the year so far(in my opinion). I do not know why a lot of critics hated it. The bad review I've seen the most was it felt like a copy of Ragnarok, which I thought it wasn't similar to it at all.

Underrated, it wasn't great plot wise but it had some of the best jokes I've ever seen.

10 Turning Red

So this is the first movie of 2022 that I saw, and I must say, it's really good. Not only does it has the best animation and humor out of all the Pixar movies, but the message and the emotional moments are very good as well. Probably one of my favorite Pixar movies ever made, and let's see in the future if there is a movie from 2022 that will be better than it.

It's no Toy Story, but that's okay. It's cute and just shows young girls being themselves w/o any mocking or sexualization, and the animation/color palettes are beautiful. And good on Pixar for mentioning periods in a way that isn't sexual.

A fun and interesting pixar movie, and I actually know the director in real life, though not well.

Great way to show the message of puberty.

The Contenders
11 Jackass Forever

It might not be subtle but Jackass Forever is certainly the funniest comedy movie of the year!

These guys are complete lunatics!

Funniest movie of the year by far.

12 Elvis

Austin Butler did such a great job in this movie!

Austin Butler did a fantastic job as Elvis!

13 Minions: The Rise of Gru

Cinematic Masterpiece, when I saw it the first time I was speechless, before I saw this I thought Morbius was The movie of all time but now I realize Morbius was only a fictional film starring Jared Leto, and Minions The Rise of Gru is much more then that. If you have not see it watch soon please (if even possible because the waitlist at most theaters is 5 Minlinion years)

14 All Quiet on the Western Front

Must be in the top 10 best movies of 2022 and one of the best in the 21st century, some parts are funny, some are tense and there are many, many sad parts especially the ending.
Best of all this is not American but German instead!
Deserves to be in the top 10

Really good film! Intense and emotional, if you're a fan of War films then this is a must watch

15 The Banshees of Inisherin
16 Uncharted
17 The Lost City

Sandra Bullock is hilarious. This movie is over the top and twisted at the same time.

18 Bullet Train
19 Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Probably the best MCU movie this year. It has quite a lot of interesting and emotional moments, although it doesn't reach quite outstanding heights.

20 Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

Never saw, but the trailer is wow!

21 Avatar: The Way of Water

I think the climax of this movie drags on a little bit too much, but otherwise the directing is on point with beautiful scenery, and there are many interesting and very emotional moment. I might even prefer this over the original Avatar movie. Overall a great film.

Guess what? The sequel to the 2009 sci fi flick earned over 2 billion dollars. James Cameron did a great job. He went from directing Terminator to Avatar. Yep. He loves to spend money on expensive movies. I'm not kidding. This movie budget costs over 300 million dollars. It's a kids film.

Both movies are in the top 10 greatest grossing movies of all. With the first one being #1. James Cameron is just amazing.

It never won Best Picture. The Oscars are a joke and Jimmy Kimmel is not funny. Oh well.

22 The Bob's Burgers Movie
23 Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Rian Johnson does not disappoint me once again. In fact, I love this movie even more than the original Knives Out. Great twists, great actors, amazing filming, very hilarious, and many very emotional moments.

The new Knives Out film is absolutely incredible, just as amazing, shocking, and fun as the first one. If you've never seen them, you're in for a real treat, they're absolutely fantastic.

24 Pinocchio

I liked this version's interpretation of Pleasure Island as a sort of demented Coney Island complete with clown figurines.

Luke Evans is the real MVP of this movie as that sly coachman. He more or less steals the movie

25 Scream (2022)
