It was indeed a beautiful year, with amazing back to back lovely movies; I must confess that it was being a fantastic year, both on Netflix and cinema, we had loads of brilliant movies, and as always to end the year I will be offering my top 5 movies from the cinema, my top 5 movies or series from Netflix, a few bonuses that should have made it that were also good, my worse movies for the year from both Netflix and cinema.
Let’s quickly dive in to my best cinema movies for the year, in no particular order, I loved the action movie called “Black Light” $16m, it was really nice, then we had “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Marvel studios product $956m, followed by “Top Gun” $1,488b, I was super excited to see Tom Cruise back again. Next was “Bullet Train” the one with our most loved actor “Brad Pitt” with the train ride and numerous flash back grossed $239m, I enjoyed it, and the fifth one was “Gray Man” the action packed movie with Ryan Gosling, was just so brilliant and loads of people enjoyed it, they have grossed $454m. My bonus two should definitely be “Black Panther; Wakanda Forever”have grossed $842m and “Thor: Love and Thunder” have grossed $761m, this ends my top 5 Cinema movies from Hollywood, to my top Nollywood movies for the year, we all loved “Anikulapo” with its amazing storyline and lessons, next was “Brotherhood” the action packed Nigerian movie, they totally killed it, followed by “Battle on Buka Street” the nice drama movie by Funke Akindele that came out towards the end of 2022, they did a fantastic job, they have grossed over N601m in the box office and is still trending till date.
Moving on quickly to my top foreign movies and local movies on Netflix, let’s start with “Ava” the action packed movie, I totally loved it, next is “Trial by Fire” a simple drama movie with loads of lessons about kids and responsibilities, 3rd on my list is “Silverton Siege” a south African movie, that really touched my heart. We have next “Loving Adults” a drama thriller movie about a possessive wife who would go any length to keep her home, quiet creepy and crazy, but it was a brilliant movie for me. Finally we have “Wedding Season” a nice comedy Drama Indian movie, though I am not a sucker for Indian romantic movies, this made it to my list for the very first time, do check it out. Bonus 3 “Purple heart”, “Is it Cake” and “You don’t Know Me”. For my top Nollywood Netflix movies, I would go for “Blood Sisters”, “Far from Home” “The Wait” and “Soole”. My worse Netflix movies “Under her Control”, “Spiderhead” “Rectless”, “Beckett”, and “End of the Road”, for the local ones, I didn’t really enjoy “Aki & Pawpaw”, “My Village People”, and ‘One Lagos”
Well on that note I will call it a wrap for 2022, I must say that indeed it has being a very interesting year, for all of us, we have enjoyed the ups and downs of both worlds the Netflix world and the cinema world, Its obvious that the industry is constantly growing and yearly each industry is doing all in their power to surpass the previous goals and target and it must only be done through innovation and creativity across board. It’s so good to see things return almost fully to normal and people resuming their normal lives. I have really enjoyed every single week brining you movies back to back from Netflix and the cinema telling you want to watch and I look forward to a beautiful 2023, I am certain it’s going to be bumper packed and I am ready to bring you all the excitements again come 2023.
Thank you once again for staying with me on this journey and I looking forward to remaining diligent in bringing you these reviews as they unfold. Happy new year and welcome to a great 2023.
Happy New year all.
