Netflix has gifted its subscribers with a lot of good movies again this year. From action to animation: The streaming service released something for everyone. Today, on the last day of the year, FilmTotal has listed the top five movies to appear on Netflix in 2022.
First of all, the beautiful stop-motion film Pinocchio: Craft of the great director Guillermo del Toro (The Pan’s Labyrinth). This animated print is less uplifting than the Disney version, and therefore more faithful to the original book in some ways. In short, a great viewing experience.
From pleasure to misery
Netflix also marked this year with The Adam Project: a great science fiction movie for the whole family. Ryan Reynolds does exactly what he does best, and young actor Walker Scobell turns out to be a real find.
A film of a completely different order is Im Westen Nichts Neues. This new film adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s well-known book is praised mainly because the filmmakers do not shy away from the ugliness of war. A very strong and impressive film.
The gray man, directed and produced by Avengers Endgamethe duo Joe and Anthony Russo, was a huge hit on the platform earlier this year. The streaming service sees a new action movie franchise and quickly greenlit a sequel and spin-off.
Another franchise that Netflix has gotten their hands on is Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. Last week, Glass Onion came out – a strong and exciting new murder mystery. Director and star Daniel Craig is guaranteed to return for Knives Out 3, but more is not excluded given the success.
