Countdown to 2023: 2022 Movies

Run Lola Run on TV

Last year I saw 31 movies, all at home, and this year I saw 30, also all at home or on a plane. I saw 2 new movies (last year it was 7), and 28 older movies streaming/on a plane (same as last year).

I saw 2 new feature-length movies either in the theater, from theaters, or new movies streaming that would have been shown in theaters this year. Both were on streaming services after being released in theaters. I saw all these movies for the first time.

The major movie moments this year were finishing the Inifinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame, as well as doing a 4-movie marathon of Time Loop movies over Christmas (Edge of Tomorrow, Run Lola Run, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things, Groundhog Day). We also had our Halloween movie of Clue and our Valentine’s Day movies of The Thin Man and Educating Rita. We watched E.T. on its 40th anniversary.

My rating system for new movies uses stars and equates as follows: 1=bad, 2=ok 3=really good 4=great.

My favorite new movies (4 stars) this year were:
Everything Everywhere All At Once

Runners up (3.5 stars):

My favorite old movie I saw for the first time:
