Another year has come and gone. Once again we have an end of the year "best of" list for you.
Here are our favorite movies from 2022:
Jake C- X or Pearl - A24 has been releasing many great movies this year. This studio is reinventing the movie industry with unique and thought provoking storytelling. I haven't been disappointed with anything that this studio releases.
Tricia -Summer of Soul (...or When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) - Not to be missed! Exuberant, joyful, powerful musical performances accompanied by interviews with participants that convey what a transformative and strengthening experience this festival was. Loved it completely - especially enjoyed the sets by Mahalia Jackson with the Staples Singers, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, a very young Aretha Franklin, and Sly and the Family Stone.
Mary - Turning Red, I'm still not over how well this movie captured the experience of a 13 year old girl in the 2000's
Becky -Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris Fun and fashion! And the hero is a "mature" woman!
Kevin - Top Gun: Maverick , Nope, Speak No Evil, Moonfall
Grace -The Batman
Sean - Everything Everywhere All at Once. I'm not sure what can I say that has not already been said about this film. It's so much fun and the performances are top shelf.
Andrew - Everything Everywhere All at Once
Sage - Everything Everywhere All at Once
Adam - Everything Everywhere All at Once (also Barbarian)
Sarah - A tie between Everything, Everywhere, All at Once and Elvis
Max -Crimes of the Future
Angela L -The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun
Ruth -The Duke with Helen Mirren. Need I say more?
Teagan-Barbarian, but I don't think we have it, so I'll go with Pearl
Therese - Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris--Lesley Manville is everywhere these days and I couldn't be happier about it. It was nothing revolutionary, but it was a real delight to watch!
Traci -Where the Crawdads Sing
