The Oscars? Psh. We got the real best movies of 2022 right here!

It’s that time of year again where the folks at Ranked celebrate our favourite movies of last year in our annual Top 5 Movies episode! And what a year for movies we had in 2022 from action, drama, rom-coms, animation, horror, etc. there was something of great quality for everyone in 2022 (except for arguably super-hero films #sorrynotsorry). So join Tuong La and Film Nerds Taylor Fleming, Alyssa Wooldrige, and Laura Gordon as they slap the Oscars out of the way to bring you the real Top 5 Movies of 2022.

Ground Rules

  • Movies must have come out in 2022
  • Does NOT need to be an Oscar contender.
  • Some movies came out last year don’t qualify for this year’s Oscars. We don’t really care about that. As long as it came out in 2022 it’s fair game to us
  • “Specials” don’t count as movies. (ie Comedy Specials)
  • Movies that are on our list are OUR favorite movies of 2022 and therefore don’t need to be considered the “best” for everyone else.
  • Documentaries count
  • Some movies came out in 2021 but had a wider release in 2022. If by and large it was more accessible in 2022 (like it had an international release in 2022) then that counts.

Dishonourable Mentions: Halloween Ends, Morbius, basically all the MCU movies that came out in 2022 just bummed me out which is weird for me to say as this is the first year none of them really resonated with me besides Wakanda Forever but even that has disappeared in my memory.
