2022 is arguably the best year in film of the decade thus far and its no coincidence given that it’s most removed from COVID. Perhaps it took a little while to get going, but once the year was unleashed we were drowning in great films. 2022 saw some of the best blockbusters we’ve seen in years with Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water leading the charge in the U.S. Meanwhile, RRR has take the international scene by storm with its incredible bombastic spectacle. As usual, it was a great year for indie gems and international features. 2022 is maybe the best year for animated films since 2014. Overall, it was just a really deep year. The vast amount of films that could be fighting for a top spot is remarkable, and it certainly made for a very satisfying experience at the movies.

Voodoo Mama – Justin Hurwitz
