Best of 2022: A Countdown of My 25 Favourite Movies of 2022

Here is my Countdown of the 25 Best Movies of 2022. Before we begin, here are a few Honourable Mentions, in no particular order: Amsterdam; Empire of Light; Top Gun Maverick; Fresh; All Quiet on the Western Front; Catherine Called Birdy; Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio; The Northman; Cha Cha Real Smooth; and X . And awaaaaay we go.... 25. Bullet Train (David Leitch) - Directed by David Leitch, the man responsible for John Wick, as well as the director of Deadpool 2 and one of the Fast & Furious movies (can anyone tell them apart anyway) this is a non-stop action comedy headlined by a fabulously fun Brad Pitt as a reluctant assassin. 24. Triangle of Sadness (Ruben Östlund) - Winner of the Palme d'Or at last year's Cannes Film Festival, this is a strange little comedy about class warfare amongst marooned yacht passengers and personel that brings on the Luis Buñuel vibe big time. 23. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (Rian Johnson) - Slightly better than the first movie
