First proper showcase of the director duo the Daniels’ high-concept multiversal sci-fi. A laundromat owner who suffers from marital strife – essentially a Mike Leigh character – morphs into an action star and back again, and then goes on a multitude of adventures along the way. In an exhilarating manner, Everything Everywhere All At Once spins you through time and space like a Mike Leigh film.

Top Gun: Maverick

No matter how cynical you might be, “Top Gun: Maverick” will thrill even the most jaded viewer. In an effort to avoid CGI as much as possible, director Joseph Kosinski places actors and cameras inside real fighter jets, allowing audiences to marvel at incredible real-life feats of aerial agility. Cruise reprises his role as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, leading a new generation of hotshots into danger.

The Banshees Of Inisherin

A bizarre and moody dark comedy written and directed by Martin McDonagh reunites stars, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. The pair play old pals on an Irish island whose friendship hit the skids as a result of a gobby hitman’s long-suffering colleague. At its heart, the film is a poignant political allegory for the sorrows of the Troubles peppered with its writer-director’s trademark dark wit. 

The Worst Person In The World

A touching and inventive account of a millennial’s life unfolds in Oslo over several years through Renate Reinsve’s eyes. Her medical student-turned-writer persona embodies all the confusions and uncertainties of young adulthood: a mess of conflicting desires, moments of directionlessness, and emotional rawness that feels endlessly relatable. Possibly the best movie moment of the year is her show-stopping run through a frozen city. 

Aftersun

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

The tender two-hander between young dad Calum (Paul Mescal) and his pre-teen daughter Sophie (Frankie Corio) in Charlotte Wells’ debut feature was one of the best surprises of the year. During their holiday in Turkey, the pair make the most of their time together before school starts. Another classic coming-of-age novel, The Go-Between, once noted that the past is a foreign country. Aftersun was a beautiful passport that took us there and left us richer, if not more tear-stained.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Johnson continues his satirical streak and light ribbing of the rich and idiotic in Glass Onion, which is lighter, fluffier, and warmer than the crispier, crunchier original. With Edward Norton as an Elon Musk-in-all-but-name eccentric on a private island hosting a murder mystery party, Blanc examines tech bro billionaires (or self-appointed “disruptors”). There are twists and turns, a fabulous ensemble (including Janelle Monae), some celebrity-endorsed hard kombucha, and the promise of more brilliant Benoit Blanc mysteries to come.

Nope

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

The pandemic inspired Jordan Peele to create a new kind of monster movie by fusing sci-fi, horror, and westerns. With no disrespect to our baking efforts, the result was even better: Keke Palmer’s livewire performance, a killer score, and terrifying sound design illuminated an unnerving, unsettling, and occasionally funny third Peele effort. The filmmaker is often over-lauded as the savior of horror – as one tweeter discovered – and Nope isn’t without faults. Yet it’s a blockbuster that isn’t afraid to depart radically from the norm, securing a place in the midnight movie pantheon.

Turning Red

Turning Red, Domee Shi’s debut feature, was a Pixar smash hit. Rosalie Chiang plays Mei, a Chinese-Canadian tween who begins to harness a power passed down from generation to generation after reaching puberty. It tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who becomes a red panda when big emotions come knocking. The story is based on her own childhood.

Prey

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

As a prequel to the Predator franchise, Prey has unlocked more than a few achievements. Despite all the gore, the inventive offings that director Dan Trachtenberg has managed to inject into it still came as a pleasant surprise. Keeping her people safe, a Comanche warrior fights against a highly evolved alien predator that hunts humans for sport, fighting against the wilderness, dangerous colonizers, and this mysterious creature. All expectations were defied by Prey: a welcome return for Trachtenberg to the screen.

Brian And Charles

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

A bittersweet British comedy that is charming, playful, and touching, this film is one of the surprises of the year. Charles Petrescu is an odd-looking robot built from an expressionless mannequin’s head placed atop an old washing machine. His – ‘its’ doesn’t feel right – bond with lonely inventor Brian Gittins (David Earl) sparks into a magical bromance that explores what it means to be human – and half-washing machine – through a physical comedy, offbeat dialogue, and pure heart that is much harder than it looks.

The Batman

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

While DC still has some work to do in terms of figuring out its extended universe, appointing Matt Reeves to bring a new Batman to life proved to be a great move. As a Bat haunted by his past and trying to figure out what to do in the future, Robert Pattinson gives a good growl. With Paul Dano as the serial-killer Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as crime boss-to-be Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, Colin Farrell is almost unrecognizable. This is a vivid new version of a comic book icon.

The Woman King

The storyline follows an African kingdom with a new(er) king in 1823 who posses the only female army in Africa. This movie is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) and stars Viola Davis (The Help), Thuso Mbedu (The Underground Railroad), Lashana Lynch (No Time to Die), Sheila Atim (Doctor Strange: In the Mouth of Madness), John Boyega (Star Wars: Episode VII-IV) and Jimmy Odukoya (Mamba’s Diamond).

Overall, this movie has literally everything you’d want in a movie – tremendous action, great villains, self-discovery, and character triumph.

Decision To Leave

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Director Park Chan-wook, known for “Oldboy” and “The Handmaiden,” presents a seductive thriller that expertly balances suspense, romance, and comedy. Tang Wei plays an enigmatic, entrancing murder suspect, alive with intrigue in every scene. The movie belongs to her. With crackerjack camerawork, electric editing, and an ending that will stay in your memory for a long time, this is Park at his best too.

Pinocchio

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Directors Guillermo del Toro and Mark Gustafson tell their version of ‘Pinocchio’ with a subtext on fascism, blind faith, and conforming weaved into the narrative. Stepping away from the original work, this stop-motion animation film is set well into the 1900s when Italy is under Mussolini’s reign. Overall, there is a lot intermingled – from magic realism to dark fantasy to satire. At first glance, it would seem that ‘Pinocchio’ is not really a kid’s film, but the film works on many levels. With its stunning visual imagery and joyous music (Alexandre Desplat), it’s sure to appeal to children.

The Northman

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Robert Eggers directs this unflinchingly brutal historical fantasy based on the old Viking epic that inspired Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” The dethroned Prince Amleth seeks vengeance against the uncle who killed his father and kidnapped his mother. A meticulous and unsanitized portrait of the grim and miserable past, “The Northman” is as visually stunning as it is disturbing. The only currency in Amleth’s blood-soaked world is cruelty, and interest is always charged on debts.

Athena

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

The film Athena is a thriller, a family drama, and an examination of contemporary tensions between citizens and institutions. A grieving family struggles to understand the death of their fourth brother from the perspective of three grieving brothers. You may not have a pulse if the opening sequence doesn’t grab you. A press conference concerning the death of this brother by the police collapses into a frenetic raid on the station by well-organized protestors, who then fortify an apartment complex into a revolutionary stronghold over 10 minutes.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

As part of their commitment, Ryan Coogler and his cast and crew reworked the planned sequel into a heartfelt tribute to their absent friend. As well as offering the usual action, adventure, and spectacle that Marvel fans have come to expect, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” offers a complex meditation on grief, following the lovable ensemble of the first film through the process of moving on.

Barbarian

Upon arriving at the house she’s renting for a short period of time, she discovers someone already lives there. This smitten stranger must now share her domicile with her for the night. In “Barbarian,” a sketch comedian (Zach Cregger of The Whitest Kids U’ Know) plays around with horror tropes. Without spoilers and with an audience full of similarly unsuspecting viewers, “Barbarian” is equal parts shocking, revolting, and hilarious.

Cha Cha Real Smooth

Indie comedy “Cha Cha Real Smooth” won the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. Raiff plays Andrew, a recent college graduate adjusting to life back at his mom and stepdad’s house. A quirky and heartfelt coming-of-age story, “Cha Cha Real Smooth” tells the story of how an adult who has enjoyed four years of independence ends up working at a mall food court.

Emily the Criminal

“Emily the Criminal” is a crime thriller based on the present moment, as a generation of people struggling with debt and a lack of full-time employment struggles. “Emily the Criminal” isn’t anything new when it comes to hard-luck outlaws getting into trouble, but it has such a modern edge that it is hard to ignore.

The Fabelmans

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

More than any other filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has shaped the past 50 years of cinema. He is finally ready to tell the story of the events that shaped Steven Spielberg. Despite Spielberg’s reputation for sincerity, “The Fabelmans” is his most personal work, based on his own adolescence. 

Sammy Fabelman is a young Jewish kid who loves filmmaking but struggles with the collapse of his parent’s marriage. Besides being a sweet coming-of-age story, this is also a sympathetic examination of a loving couple who have grown apart. Additionally, “The Fabelmans” is a charming love letter to cinema, following its protagonist as he embarks on increasingly complicated home movie projects. Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” is as awe-inspiring as any other film.

Fire Island

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

As part of a long tradition of modernized Jane Austen adaptations, “Fire Island” takes place at the titular New York vacation spot during a tight-knit, queer-chosen family’s annual reunion. Despite Conrad Ricamora’s standout performance as Will, “Fire Island’s” stoic Mr. Darcy, the film’s heart lies with the friendship between the two leads, played by Joel Kim Booster (who also wrote the screenplay) and Bowen Yang. Like “Pride and Prejudice,” “Fire Island”

Fire of Love

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

“Fire of Love” is a documentary that tells the true story of Katia and Maurice Krafft, two volcanologists who visited multiple erupting volcanoes during the latter half of the 20th century. The couple financed their studies by filming and photographing their adventures, which they turned into books and movies that captivated audiences across the world. This documentary is the distillation of hundreds of hours of footage of their strange journey into one, stunning narrative. Their relationship with each other and the awesome and indifferent forces of our planet is nothing short of enthralling. “Fire of Love” is part nature documentary, part romance, and part tragedy. It’s a film best seen with the person next to you clutching your hand.

Hustle

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Sandler’s newest movie, “Hustle,” is a heartwarming story of a single father from Spain who is discovered by a basketball scout. Although it may not be groundbreaking, the movie is saved by the excellent chemistry between Sandler and Hernangomez. Additionally, Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, and Robert Duvall give great performances. Finally, the cameos by NBA and street ball legends contribute to making “Hustle” a great basketball movie.

Tár

Best hollywood Movies Of 2022
Best hollywood Movies Of 2022

Cate Blanchett’s career-best performance as Lydia Tár, a fictional composer and conductor, is absolutely captivating. Tár is a well-known figure in the classical music world, and she has an ego to match. However, as she prepares for her latest milestone, rumors of her personal and professional misconduct begin to circulate.

Blanchett brings such charisma and menace to the character of Tár that it’s easy to see how someone so horrible could acquire and maintain power. This film is a contemplation of the movement to hold people accountable, but it allows the viewer to make their own judgment about the protagonist. There are moments when you may find yourself sympathizing with Tár, even as you eagerly await her downfall.
