πŸ† 🎬 Best FILMS and TV shows of 2022 πŸ“Ί πŸ†

Let’s all list our favourite FILMS (and TV shows if you like) of 2022.

Doesn’t really matter how many you want to put down. It’s just for fun and that isn’t it.

It’s a good idea although I may not actually be able to compile a coherent list.

I expect Everything Everywhere to creep up the list after a rewatch.

A quick look at Letterboxd and I haven’t given a single 2022 movie a rating higher than 4/5.

On the other hand I’ve watched numerous TV shows that would be ranked 4.5 or 5. Shame I don’t have an app for TV show logging. I thought Just Watch might add something like that but I guess that’s not it’s core purpose.

Will take a bit of effort to come up with a Top 10 TV.

I was gonna do this thread! Grumble grumble :wink:

I use trakt.tv for that, it does films too. And it integrates with JustWatch.

Films:

Avatar: The Way of Water

(Semi joking, will likely think of a full list later, but it’ll be top)

How do people remember everything they’ve watched, read or listened to? Wish I could.

Monthly playlist of new releases, write down a rough top 5 for each month as I go and submit it to the relevant thread

Books are just in a note on my phone

Films on Letterboxd

Zero memory skills

top ten films in some sort of rough order would be something like:

everything everywhere
top gun maverick
rrr
doc strange 2
the woman king
the northman
emily the criminal
prey
kimi
jackass forever

tv, the best was the bear by miles. can’t remember what other shows i watched this year. the english was quite good, maybe that can go second. and the kanye documentaries, they were good

Keep an ongoing Notes page on my phone for films, TV, theatre and gigs. Have a little system. It’s nice and really helps me have a sense of the year.

Films I’ll go with roughly:

  1. Parallel Mothers
  2. Scream
  3. Boiling Point
  4. Everything Everywhere All at Once
  5. Benedetta
  6. Pearl
  7. Sissy
  8. Liquorice Pizza
  9. Bones and All
  10. Worst Person in the World

Mothers is pretty way out ahead there, loved that film - whole top 5 is great though. Wouldn’t have thought Liquorice Pizza would make it there, but it did have some great moments and just lots of fun vibes and looks, and that’ll do it for me over something self serious that didn’t quite land

I scored Flee well but it hasn’t really stuck with me, and Aftersun really didn’t get to me like it seemed to for most people. The opening of Barbarian was fantastic but hard to balance that against how I felt about the second half. Decision to Leave also had good stuff in but left me a bit cold so hard to get too enthused about trying to fit it in 10th or anything

I always use Christmas with mum to catch up on some of the best reviewed ones we missed at the time, so should have added in at least Cmon Cmon and Red Rocket in the next week.

Banshees and Triangle of Sadness are two other obvious ones I meant to see that I haven’t got to yet

Did you mean to rank them 15-29? :smiley:

bloody formatting on this site, eh?
