2022 has been a great year for unique films. Each tale is so distinct from the other, and the writers have explored new ways to showcase pre-existing genres.
If you’re looking for the best films to binge on this weekend, you’ve arrived at the right place. Here’s a complete list of the top 10 movies released so far in 2022.
Everything Everywhere All at Once
Everything Everywhere All at Once is one of the biggest hits from the studio, A24. The trailer shares a glimpse of the multiversal world in which Michelle Yeoh’s character resides.
How she becomes aware of her multiversal personalities, possesses their memories, learns their skills, and fights a common enemy, is the story.
Top Gun: Maverick
Top Gun: Maverick was a visual spectacle for any cinema-lover. The action sequences with fighter jets pushed the actors' boundaries, performance, and stunt work.
Tom Cruise’s film picks up 30 years after the first film's events, where we see the action star as a coach for students at Top Gun. What mission lies before them, how they attempt it, and if they accomplish it is the story.
Elvis is a biographical film on the legendary musician Elvis Presley. Astin Butler has embodied the figure's essence with such a compelling performance.
While the story might not find a pulse with all the audience members, it would strike a chord with those who are fans of jazz music. If you’re an avid cinephile, you would love the technical aspects of this work of art.
Black Phone is a blend of the horror and serial killer genre. Starring Ethan Hawke as the antagonist, the film is about a victim locked in a serial killer's basement. The serial killer has a systematic game that he plays over multiple days before killing his prey.
But, the boy is not alone. He seems to have some form of help. What happens to him and the serial killer is a tale that will give you literal chills.
After Us, Jordan Peele is back with yet another out-of-the-world concept. This time, quite literally. The director has a knack for making genre-bending films while also adding subtle social commentary to his plot.
Nope follows the story of two brothers who take care of a ranch. One day they see an unidentified flying object and thus begin their encounter with extraterrestrial forces. The rest, as they say, is the story.
RRR is one of the unique films to have come out this year. The Telugu-language film is a fictional story about two real-life historical figures who fought the British Raj for their freedom.
The tale answers the question, what if two freedom fighters who never met in real-life encountered each other? What if they had a larger-than-life persona and near demigod-like powers?
The visual spectacle created by the director must not be missed. The film’s color and gravitas reside at the center of pure, unadulterated human emotions.
This is a perfect watch if you’re a fan of the shows such as Vikings or enjoy the nordic lore. It is one of the most historically accurate tales with a classic revenge plot. Although the film hasn’t done well at the box office, it is a brilliant story with incredible acting performances.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Brad Pitt in an action-comedy-drama film. So let’s just say it’s one hell of a ride with the talented ensemble who don’t fail to entertain. Directed by the man behind Deadpool 2, John Wick, and Atomic Blonde, this action-fest is as exciting as the man’s previous ventures.
Jackass Forever is a film like you would’ve never seen before. It is part of a franchise where actors do the silliest, most exciting, absurd, and even the most dangerous stunts. The film follows the documentary format and will leave wide-eyed by the sheer audacity with which the actors perform the pranks and stunts.
The Batman did have mixed reviews for its portrayal of the villain and many other things, but we can agree upon one thing for sure. This live-action rendition is the closest to the source material regarding look, feel, characters, and performances.
The world created by Matt Reeves was dark, cynical, and borderline dystopian. It is precisely how Gotham was during the formative years of Bruce Wayne as the Caped Crusader.
Watch this film not for its action sequences but for the detailed world-building. Yes, the writing could have been better, but it was a great spectacle nevertheless.
With this, we come to the end of the list. Here are a couple of honorary mentions:
