My favorite movies of 2022

A lot of great movies came out in 2022, with a couple that will surely make my best of the decade list too. I didn’t make it to the cinema as much as I hoped, but this was definitely the year to watch from home cuddled on the couch with the pups.

Some honorable mentions for 2022 include Top Gun: Maverick for helping me wait things out until Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning comes out next year, Slumberland, Nope, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and Spirited (whose soundtrack I listened to a whole bunch).
