Ten More 2022 Movies Summarised in Ten Words Each

So, uh, this happened. Never had to do back-to-back movie summaries before – but don’t say I didn’t warn you. It turns out that this is a pretty huge cinematic year.

I don’t know what feels more surreal: The near-certainty that this is the most new release films I’ve ever fit inside a month across my whole life, or the fact we live in a world where I could manage a whole nineteen movies before the first Marvel release of 2022. And a lot of those movies are good! Who knew!

Some of them are even really good; in fact I’m feeling bold enough to say that come the end of December, if my overall movie of the year somehow isnโ€™t on this page I’d be shocked. In that unlikely case we would have truly enjoyed a special 2022.
