Another Ten 2022 Movies Summarised in Ten Words Each

I don’t know, I’ve never done a third one of these within a single year before; I’m not sure what else to title this one.

This probably still would’ve felt like a bonus list even if we weren’t living through one of the best cinematic years in recent memory; but here we are, so I’ve enjoyed somewhat of an unfamiliar feeling of lightness to accompany this third batch of 2022 films. Every new release is like an extra sprinkling of spice on a delectable banquet; the usual slightly anxious anticipation of wondering when the next good movie will hit just isn’t there for me at the moment.

Which is great because while the pleasant surprises keep on coming, the quality over the American summer blockbuster season thus far has been a bit all over the place.

Another ten quick ones for you:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

After Yang

Dizzying, ponderous themes curbed by stunning visuals and merciful length.”


The only aspect not joyously surprising is Dinklage’s powerhouse performance.”

Top Gun Maverick

Pack upBerlin; this one actually took my breath away.”

Jurassic World Dominion

Plenty of dinos, not enough Goldblum, too much everybody else.”

Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers

Enjoyment directly proportionate to how much you saw it coming.”


More electric highs than baffling lows; Baz is back baby.”


Some cool moments, but sadly not one of Pixar’s best.”

Thor: Love & Thunder

The cast and the action hum, but it’s no Ragnarok.”


Quietly amazing sports fantasy unafraid of a sevenminute montage.”

The Black Phone

Timely reminder that straightforward horror works when quality filmmaking’s involved.”

One response to this post.

    Way better summary than the ones they make about the “16 personalities”
