I am writing this pre-Oscars so I have no idea who won although my money would NOT be on Top Gun: Maverick. I, like most Americans, did not see almost any of the films nominated. The Wall Street Journal shared a survey done last month showing how Americans rated the films. I’m with the majority.

Much of my movie watching in 2022–and this is the norm since streaming took over the world–were of films released in earlier years. Here is my list of the best films I watched last year. Have you seen any of them? What were your favorite films you watched?


Road to Perdition



The Edge of Tomorrow



Easy A



You People



Ford vs. Ferrari



Your Name



If Beale Street Could Talk
