Official Discussion 2022 films ranked according to the /r/movies official discussion polls.

319 Upvotes

Every week we post official discussions for widely released movies and attach a poll to each asking users to both rank the movies from 1-10 and whether or not they'd recommend them. Those polls get compiled into the yearly list and the all time list every so often. I find this to be a great way to rank films for the sub because these rankings were voted on mostly by people who had seen the film (hopefully) and without the context of ranking them competitively, which can cause spite downvoting. It's also worth noting that just like every movie site (IMDB, Letterboxd, etc) sorts movies by year based on different criteria, we base the year off of the calendar year that the discussion was made. So if there's some lingering movies from 2021 on here, that is why.

2022 felt like a year where movies and theater going were starting to approach the "old normal" of pre-COVID. Whereas the 2021 highest grossing films list seems a bit lackluster and only has one movie that crosses a billion dollars worldwide, 2022 had three billion dollar movies and a top 5 that each would have topped the #2 from last year. I mean, people must be comfortable going back to theaters when the dinosaur sized piece of shit that was Jurassic World: Dominion crosses a billion.

Anyways, here are some results and stats from the 2022 /r/movies Official Discussions Ranking Polls! These scores are determined by the average 1-10 ranking of the votes. The list can be found here.

Rank Film Title Mean Score Number of Votes
1 Everything, Everywhere, All At Once 9.17 14,973
2 Puss in Boots: The Last Wish 9.12 2,110
3 RRR 8.99 1,123
4 Top Gun: Maverick 8.96 1,973
5 Marcel the Shell with Shoes On 8.83 463
6 Thirteen Lives 8.65 333
7 All Quiet on the Western Front 8.56 2,063
8 Tár 8.44 821
9 Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio 8.4
10 This Place Rules 8.37 411
11 The Whale 8.31 1,318
12 Spoiler Alert 8.3 33
13 Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy Part 1 8.28 191
14 Drive My Car 8.23 437
15 Weird: The Al Yankovic Story 8.2 756
16 Petite Maman 8.16 62
17 The Outfit 8.15 353
18 The Banshees of Inisherin 8.14 2,487
19 Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie 8.13 483
20 The Bad Guys 8.13 417

Much like rotten tomatoes, the less seen but high quality movies or movies with highly niche audiences tend to do well with this system because most likely only people who want to see them are voting on them.

If we set parameters, such as at least 500 votes to be included, the top 10 would be:

  1. Everything, Everywhere, All at Once
  2. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
  3. RRR
  4. Top Gun: Maverick
  5. All Quiet on the Western Front
  6. Tár
  7. Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio
  8. The Whale
  9. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story
  10. The Banshees of Inisherin

Here's some more stats from the rankings:

  • We made discussions for 181 movies last year.

  • Four movies from last year made it on to the Top 20 Films of All Time (going back to 2017 when we started this process) list. Those movies, in order, are EEAAO, Puss in Boots, RRR, and Top Gun: Maverick.

  • While no movie topped the 20k votes that Justice League and No Way Home got last year, The Batman was the highest voted on movie with 18,125 votes. The next three most popular were all in the 14,900 range and were Everything, Everywhere, Doctor Strange 2, and Nope. Very impressive company EEAAO is keeping.

  • The bottom 10 are as follows:

  1. Mack & Rita (3)
  2. Blacklight (3.28)
  3. Night at the Museum: Kamunrah Rises Again (3.67)
  4. Cheaper by the Dozen (3.78)
  5. Me Time (3.79)
  6. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (3.83)
  7. Halloween Ends (4.3)
  8. The Munsters (4.41)
  9. Firestarter (4.43)
  10. Blonde (4.6)
  • The Bottom 10 is comprised mostly of movies that got less than or roughly 100 votes, with Texas Chainsaw (1,003), Halloween Ends (2,837), and Blonde (799) being the exceptions.

  • Morbius was the 11th lowest ranked film (who's excited for Tron 3? Anyone? Anyone?)

  • While in 2020 Netflix had the most movies with the most votes and 2021 it was HBO Max, this year the entire top 10 is populated by theater releases, with the conditional exception of Glass Onion which got a theater release a month before its Netflix release.

  • The most controversial films, as judged by the high standard deviation, are as follows:

  1. Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy Part 2 (3.8 SD)
  2. Pinocchio (The Tom Hanks One) (3.18 SD)
  3. Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy Part 3 (2.99 SD)
  4. Dashcam (2.85 SD)
  5. Morbius (2.83 SD)

Don't believe me?

Discussion Why is Puss in Boots the Last Wish so Good

1.6k Upvotes

The film completely blew me away. And I’m left wondering what happened behind the scenes that resulted in the movie being THIS good.

Were the writers given more freedom? Was it having co directors? The right producers?

Whatever the process was for developing this gem - it needs to be repeated immediately.

If anyone has any insights on how a movie gets to be this good, please do share.

Discussion What happened to teen movies like American Pie?

113 Upvotes

Seems like every movie/show about teenagers today is some serious depressing, drama. Not saying movies that deal with teen mental issues shouldn't exist but so should sex comedies, because, let's face it, most teenagers are horny, especially the guys.

I just caught American Pie 2 on TV, and even tho I'm in my early 30's now and I haven't watched in probably a decade, it's still pretty funny and raunchy, has some serious, heartfelt moments, and not every character is acting like a complete idiot, like they do in modern comedies.

Is there some unhealthy male fantasy issue I'm missing, or do people don't like those kinds of movies anymore? I remember loving those movies when I watched them as a teen, and all of my friends loved them as well. We used to watch them when we would hang out together, joked who's which character among my friends.

Are there any similar movies made recently?

News Over 2 months ago, I put a video together about the appearance of Heather Donohue's voice from Blair Witch Project (who changed her name to Rei Hance in 2021) and how she was not credited or paid for her voice appearing in Academy Award Nominee, Tár.

Upvotes

She replied to the video with this comment: "It's extraordinary to me that after 25 years of being told my performance had nothing to do with the success of Blair Witch, just the audio of my performance, 25 years later, is still an effective shorthand for existential dread--and I'm still not being paid or credited. Thank you for putting this video together. It's undeniable."

Discussion What movie did you think you’d hate but ended up loving?

652 Upvotes

For me, it was Billionaire Ransom/Take Down. The premise sounded like a stereotypical YA flick and the characters were very unappealing at the start, but the film quickly became an action thriller where all of the characters grew, survived together, matured, and became better people as a result.

The movie also didn’t feature any dumb YA cliches and proved that the genre is far beyond ridiculous romances and rebellions. It was refreshing for that exact reason.

There are many others that impressed me, but this one was the most recent.

Discussion Bullet Train made fight banter funny again

28.3k Upvotes

Up until now Marvel has really ruined fight banter for me in an attempt to make every character more like Spider-Man or more humorous. I watched bullet train recently and for the first time in a while the fight banter (mostly from Brad Pitt) was actually kind of funny and fit well. What are your thoughts?

Edit: I’m not bashing marvel. As someone who grew up in the 2000s I have a huge love for those movies, but recently the humour has gotten kinda bland (whatever phase we’re on) and I just thought this movie reminded me that there’s still a place for good fight jokes.

Discussion What is the oldest western in terms of the year it is set in?

86 Upvotes

Edit: Thanks for the useful responses. That pretty much covers it.

I'm on a western hype at the moment and was wondering the question asked in the title.

I've tried googling for a list but what I'm looking for doesn't come up.

All that I watch tends to be post 1850. I'm wondering if there are films set during the earlier years of the United States or even during the time of the United Colonies.

I'm from the UK so American history is not something I know off the cuff. Elvis Presley was the only part of American history that they covered in high school.

Edit:

Another question. I remember seeing a western movie as a kid, which ends with maybe a time lapse of the new america being built; highways, skyscrapers, etc. What is that movie?!

The film I was looking for is How the west was won.

Review So I watched my first ever Tarantino movie: Inglourious Basterds. It's one glorious bastard.

Upvotes

Where can I start? Well, one of the most clench-your-buttcheeks-together intense opening scenes to a movie there are. Followed by Benoit Pitt demanding himself "100 Nazi scalps".

Pitt leads a gang of Jewish American soldiers to kill Nazis when they cross paths with a French Jewish owner of a movie theater the Nazis plan on using to host a premiere. Hitler will be in attendance, and they're gonna cook the bastard.

Yeah, what can I say, this movie's friggin' great. The script, directing, camera work, and acting is just stellar. And when shit hits the fan, it hits you just as hard as the characters in the scene. This movie has some excellent "Oh fuck." scenes. And all the sticky situations that people find themselves in add up to one finale that is, dare I say it, glorious.

God damn, it's good. And Christoph Waltz? Terrifying.

Do you ever think about how many good movies are just lost forever now because there are no more movie stores? Like everything you see will be what Netflix/Prime/Disney shows you, usually from the last 10-15 years, unless you track something and buy it. Renting now costs the same digitally as it did before Blockbuster/Family Video/etc shut down. Am I wrong?

Discussion What's your favorite movie stunt?

37 Upvotes

Anything goes: car chases, foot chases, car crasher, impossible feats of inhuman athletism and things that make you wonder how didn't anyone die doing that?

My personal favorites are Bullit's iconic chase sequence, the last part of Death Proof, Vanishing Point and pretty much Buster Keaton's entire filmography, same for Harold Lloyd.

Edit: Atomic Blonde is also on par when it comes to amazing stunts.

Discussion Children of Men (2006) has one of the most powerful scenes in film that I've ever seen

4.4k Upvotes

I just watched this movie for the first time and have not had a scene hit me the way this one did in, well, like ever.

Towards the end, when Theo and Kee are stuck on the top floor of that ghetto apartment block and pinned down by military forces, they just start walking down the hallway as the baby's cries swell. Residents stare, cry, reach out, and part to let them through, down each level. Then, the call to "cease fire" and the shell-shocked look of awe on the commanding officer's face as his brain processes what he's seeing, the dumbfounded stares of every successive soldier, and the moment where they walk down the last flight onto the ground floor is so unbelievably powerful. Every last man in that unit can't believe what he's seeing, staggers to their feet in a daze, and it is like everybody is snapped out of a daze and coming to terms with what the post-fertility world has turned them into, a moment of self-awareness you see spreading through the crowd.

It reaches a peak of religiosity that is suddenly interrupted by am explosion and EVERYBODY immediately snaps back into their conditioning and the battle resumes, with only one or two bothering to glance at what is both a miracle and the reason the soldiers are there as they leave.

Just felt like putting it out there in case people want to discuss :)

This old movie popped up on Netflix recently and I was aware of it from pop culture references so I gave it a shot. It was really excellent. The practical effects have held up pretty well and I enjoyed the story and the acting. Overall a very good film.

Recommendation Slapstick of Another Kind (1982) on Tubi

8 Upvotes

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088134/

This is such a random movie that Tubi just got. It’s originally a fantastic(and my favorite) novel by the legendary Kurt Vonnegut. I didn’t even know they made it into a movie until a few years ago. And then I could only find a bad copy on YT.

To start, this movie isn’t what the book was, and it could very well deserve its 2.5 rating on IMDB, but I’d rate it a bit higher myself. Though it is still bad, and it’s even worse if you expect it to stay true to the novel. That said, it was entertainingly bad, IMO. But at least it stars some top notch comedic actors in the likes of Jerry Lewis, Madeleine Kahn, and Marty Feldman. So there is that.

So if you want a bad movie, or a curious for whatever reason, give it a go. Like I said, it’s on Tubi. Enjoy, or don’t.
