The popularity of TV shows today is truly incredible. However, not every viewer is ready to devote a lot of free time to watch the next episodes. Part of the audience prefers not too long series, to which it is customary to add the prefix “mini.”
Such tapes, as a rule, are limited to a single season and a relatively small number of episodes. Unlike longer series, events in such films develop quite rapidly, and a rich plot does not allow the viewer to get bored.

Defending Jacob will be a real find for fans of intricate and tense films. On the other hand, the plot develops rather slowly, which is why the skepticism towards the picture. The main trumps of the film are the stellar acting duet in the person of Chris Evans and Michelle Dockery, as well as the intrigue that remains alive almost until the very end.
A prestigious suburb, where life flows as calmly as possible, shuddered from the brutal murder. The victim was a teenager, and all the evidence points to his classmate, Jacob. The suspect is far from being as simple as it might seem because the guy’s father is a district attorney who will have to sort out the case.

The Night Manager series is a great example of a high-quality project. A scattering of world-famous stars supports excellent directing and camera work: Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Olivia Colman will make you follow every step of the characters with bated breath. Although reminiscent of Bond, the plot is characterized by consistency and the absence of unnecessary pathos.
Jonathan unexpectedly becomes an intelligence officer. He will have a difficult mission – to infiltrate a gang of arms dealers and get close to the head of the syndicate and his closest henchmen. However, the criminals are smart enough, and it will be very difficult to deceive them.

Many will say that Benedict Cumberbatch played one of his best roles in the series “Patrick Melrose,” which consists of 5 episodes. The actor took on the project with great enthusiasm because he had always dreamed of embodying this image. Hugo Weaving (famous Agent Smith from The Matrix) is no worse – he played a truly intimidating, repulsive character that one would not want to meet in real life.
Patrick is a wealthy man who constantly rotates among the elite, but darkness, fear, and hopelessness reign in his soul. The endless psychological problems of a man stretch straight from childhood. The difficult relationship of the protagonist with his father seriously affected the later life of Patrick, who set foot on the path of self-destruction.

This series is based on the novel by Stephen King, and the film adaptations of the “King of Horrors” are often criticized. It is not surprising because the master’s books are very difficult to beat, but the audience liked the tape “11.22.63” and left a pleasant impression. There are a lot of films about a person’s desire to change the past, but high-quality works can be counted on the fingers. Jake is an ordinary school teacher whose life consists entirely of the routine of daily chores. One day, he gets a unique opportunity to go back in time and prevent the assassination of the American president, Kennedy. However, the future does not like to be corrected, making Jake’s mission extremely difficult.

Before us is an outstanding series consisting of 6 episodes. “Beauty Inside” is a completely social project, both in content and implementation. Most ordinary people could get on the screen by sending a recording from a webcam, which is already quite atypical. Despite the great content, the series highlights the problems of society.
In the center of the story is a hero with a very strange feature. Every day, Alex wakes up in another person’s body, trying to figure out if this is a curse or a great gift. The character gets into various situations and can fully feel that appearance is far from the main thing in a person.
IMDb – 8.2
Opinions were divided about this film – the tape causes sincere delight to one part of the audience and irritation to the other half of the public. What is the secret of the Lost Room? On duty, Joe works as a detective and is trying to solve another crime. A magic key falls into the hands of the main character. With its help, it is easy to find yourself in a lost room. From this room, you can go anywhere in the world, and other items also become magical. Such artifacts are of interest not only to Joe, but the detective will have a hard time.
IMDb – 8.5
Using the example of the series “One Night,” we see how a quite typical plot can sparkle with new colors in the hands of professionals. The director immediately enters the production of a detective. Still, our attention is not focused on the little things, turning the film into a good drama where emotions prevail over logic. Here you will not find promoted actors, but among the technical staff, there are only stars: cameramen, editors, decorators, and screenwriters – entirely the creators of projects that have been nominated or won an Oscar.
An insecure guy goes to a party that will radically change his life. After a passionate night with a local beauty, Nasir discovers her lifeless body nearby. Of course, the main character becomes the only suspect, and it will certainly not be easy for him to escape from justice.
MEIR OF EASTTOWN
IMDb – 8.5
It must be admitted that serials are fertile ground for creating detective stories. The coin’s reverse side is a frank secondariness of most of the paintings. So “Meir from Easttown” cannot surprise the viewer. Everything happens according to patterns familiar to the public. The characters reveal themselves predictably and act to expectations. However, Kate Winslet pulls the series to unprecedented heights, thanks to the exact hit in the image of her heroine.
Meir is a detective in a gray, provincial town. The woman has a complicated story behind her, and constant problems with relatives and daily routine eat the heroine from the inside. Investigating the next crimes, Meir reveals the secrets of Easttown, where it is really difficult to find a good person.
IMDb – 8.6
One of the best series of recent times is far from being as straightforward as it might seem. The Queen’s Move is a sports drama that focuses on chess. From the point of view of a professional player, the shooting was done wonderfully, the picture is juicy, and the surroundings of the “sixties” are sustained. The main claims against the heroine are that she is so flawless that not every heart can arouse sympathy.
Elizabeth fell in love with chess in childhood, and it turned out that the girl had an incredible talent. She quickly reaches the top in sports, but problems with illegal substances and alcohol prevent her from establishing a truly happy life. Gradually, the world of the main character is collapsing, and it is not known whether she is destined to stop her fall.
IMDb – 9.4
Everyone has heard about this series, although there is a very ambiguous attitude towards the Chornobyl project in society. It isn’t easy to name the secret of the exorbitant ratings of this tape, but people familiar with the situation at the famous nuclear power plant did not like the picture. However, there are pluses – the Americans tried to make the film as realistic as possible and treated the liquidators of the accident with respect.
An explosion at an extremely dangerous facility has become a catastrophe on a global scale. Not all measures were taken on time – too many wanted to hide the true picture of what was happening. Only a group of caring people managed to start the process of liquidating the consequences of the disaster, and firefighters and the military paid with their lives for the well-being of their comrades.
The Best Netflix Movies In 2022: You Must Watch This Year
I reviewed the most notable Netflix series so far this year, and today it’s time to do the same but with its cinematographic harvest.
Below you will find what I, Mikel Zorrilla, consider to be the ten best Netflix movies in 2022 so far -here is my review of his most potent feature films from last year-a list that I will update as I see more Netflix titles. The platform that I consider appropriate to include here.
All the Best Netflix Movies in 2022
You can also look at this selection of fantastic science fiction movies available on Netflix or this review of the best horror movies available. Without further ado, let’s go there with his best film proposals so far in 2022 :
A curious Italian romantic comedy that explores the concept of soul mates through the premise of what would happen if a particular group of people paired up differently. It is a balanced film that deviates from the easy paths of this type of proposal and has an efficient work of its cast, a skilful job of its screenwriter, and a solvent work of direction. It’s not revolutionary either, but titles like this are appreciated in such a hackneyed subgenre.
Apollo 101⁄2: A Space Age Childhood
The best of this 2022 without any possible discussion. Richard Linklater returns to draw on nostalgia, this time to remember in his way everything that surrounded the launch to the moon. With a touch of fantasy, when it shines with more intensity, it is when it recreates those memories with contagious energy.
The French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet makes a very identifiable work within his cinema that is also his first feature film in almost a decade. An eccentric film that mixes science fiction with costumbrista in an uneven but stimulating way, counting on a peculiar gallery of characters and an excellent technical finish.
It is a stimulating post-apocalyptic film that more than meets its objective of immersing the viewer in the universe it poses and is also very successful in showing the hardships that its protagonists face in a practically suicidal mission. Unfortunately, interest wanes in its last act, but everything we see beforehand makes up for it.
A magnificent interactive animated film from the creator of ‘Black Mirror’ that drinks directly from the style of Tex Avery. Ingenious at all times and funny most of the time, it is a delight that invites you to see all the options for that attempted robbery, enjoying one as much when the protagonist gets away with it as when it ends terribly.
Netflix’s first Spanish film in 2022 pays special attention to achieving an oppressive atmosphere to get the viewer to connect with the anguish that its two protagonists go through. In addition, both Inma Cuesta and Asier Flores are compelling in their respective characters. Still, it is fair to point out that interest wanes somewhat in its final stretch, where it seems that David Casademunt runs out of ideas about what he wants to tell us.
Stroke of Luck (‘Windfall’)
One of those small movies that lean almost entirely on its leads and the strength of its script. For my part, I thoroughly enjoy Jesse Plemons playing the obnoxious rich man here, to the point where he only sustains the show when specific weaknesses start to surface around footage hour.
A striking stop-motion animation film divided into several stories, all of them linked to the house of the title. As usual in these cases, the baggage is somewhat uneven, but all offer something of interest, often flirting with terror but never leaving aside the general absurdity of what it proposes.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
It is far from the sensational Tobe Hooper film with which the franchise started in 1974, but that does not mean that we are facing a most enjoyable slasher as long as we assume that what most interests those involved in the accumulation of corpses and the generosity in showing Leatherface’s crimes on screen in the most graphic way possible.
Munich on the Eve of War (‘Munich: The Edge of War’)
An exciting film about the tensions before a military confrontation, in this case, World War II. What matters here are the diplomatic movements to avoid what seems inevitable or at least postpone it as long as possible, so everything ends up tending more to the spy movie, but with a perhaps more relaxed approach than ideal, giving the feeling of moments when it might have worked better as a miniseries. All in all, it’s worth it, and Jeremy Irons is excellent.
In addition, Netflix plans to release 2022 a multitude of feature films that promise a lot. The platform itself highlighted 28 films in particular, among which titles such as ‘The Gray Man‘ stand out, the news from the directors of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
Batman 2022: What Do You Want To Know Before Watching?
DC fans are getting impatient as there’s only a little bit left to wait until the premiere of Batman. The next reboot of the franchise should be large enough to satisfy fans of the series and ordinary viewers. In the meantime, it remains for us to collect facts and bits of interviews to outline in general terms.
So far, we can only say that the project was directed by Matt Reeves, better known for the film Planet of the Apes: Revolution. Robert Pattinson will star in the role of Batman, causing mixed emotions in the viewer.
TIMING AND AGE RESTRICTIONS
If you ask the average Western viewer, almost everyone dreams of a film getting a high rating. It’s not about cruelty at all – it’s just that everyone expects maximum action and dynamics from the adaptation of comics. Batman is rated PG-13 (not recommended for under 13s), which is disappointing. It will deliberately soften many scenes, and we will have to be content with a moderate degree of confrontation between the characters.
Separately, it should be noted the timing of the tape, which is regarded as extremely long – 175 minutes. The author’s version lasts about 4 hours, and after the premiere, fans will have the opportunity to purchase such recordings, enjoying all the scenes that the director intended.
THE MOVIE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DC CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.
While Marvel is mixing all its universes into a fusion cocktail with a light hand, DC continues to bet on independent stories. It means that the new “Batman” got its world. The film will not intersect with Ben Affleck’s vigilante and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker – the viewer is waiting for a completely independent story.
Of course, competition may well lead to the fact that the situation will change in the foreseeable future. However, for now, Matt Reeves is firm and willing to focus on Batman, not looking to experiment with other universes. That is why the viewer should not count on the reunion of the characters of Pattinson, Affleck, and Keaton, as the guys from Marvel did with Spider-Man.
WHY ROBERT PATTINSON?
After announcing that Robert Pattinson would be the new Batman, the community was divided into two camps. Some continue to hate the actor, remembering his participation in “Twilight,” while others were delighted because recent work revealed the guy from a different side. Robert starred a lot after the famous saga, did not disdain independent cinema, and raised his authority in every possible way. However, it is still not easy for the actor to remove the label of Edward the vampire.
According to Reeves, he decided to invite Pattinson to the stage of writing the script. The main reason for this is a feeling of some inner rage, which the director saw in Robert. The actor himself enthusiastically accepted the offer and actively joined in the work on his character.
BATMAN GETS A NEW FACE
They want to offer us a truly new Batman, a reading whose history can contrast sharply with previous vigilante films. Matt Reeves speaks rather vaguely about this, and he was inspired by the songs of the Nirvana group when he prescribed the character of the protagonist and imagined his implementation. The desire for revenge will be a drug for Batman, which must be mastered to avoid a sad end.
After the trailer and the statements of the film crew, it becomes clear that Batman will be far from being a role model. The vigilante is just beginning his journey, so he cannot always moderate his rage. Bruce Wayne will make mistakes, and only by making the best efforts can he become a real legend.
WHAT TO EXPECT DIRECTLY FROM THE FILM?
Obviously, “Batman” is, first of all, the story of the formation of a superhero. Not much time will be devoted to Bruce’s past, and we will rather see how the character goes through the path of his moral maturation. It is unlikely that the fights present in the trailer can impress an experienced viewer so that the focus will shift from action in favor of a detective story.
It is confirmed by the presence of one of the villains, the Riddler, who cannot do without charades and puzzles. Also, pay attention to the frankly noir atmosphere of the action. It will appeal not only to comic book lovers but also to the average viewer, who is not spoiled by such surroundings.
BRUCE WAYNE’S PARENTS BEHIND THE SCENES
It is generally accepted that the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents became the actual event in the life of the future superhero. This topic has always received increased attention, but Reeves turned everything. The director stated that it makes no sense to return to the past of Batman, although his presence is implied during the film.
The scene of the death of Bruce’s parents was reproduced in the cinema extremely often and set the viewer on edge, according to Matt, so it will not be re-shot. Also, we must not forget that the new Batman story has every chance to acquire unexpected details that the director will probably add to the overall composition.
AND WHAT ABOUT ANDY SERKIS?
Previously, the name Andy Serkis was not well known, and he was engaged in the embodiment of images of fantastic creatures using computer technology. Today, the actor not only appears on the screen in his true form but also makes films. Before us is a vivid example of how a person can get out of a fairly narrow framework with his work.
Serkis is back in the spotlight, you guessed it, and this time he’s got the small but notable role of Alfred Pennyworth. This character replaced Bruce Wayne’s parents, and he bears a significant share of the responsibility for the moral guidelines of the ward.
If you expect to see something incredible, you have to disappoint – Ben Affleck was driving around in a much more fancy car. However, let’s not rush to throw stones at Reeves, who noted that he wanted to make his Batman a smart and inventive guy, gradually modifying the iconic vehicle.
The idea is interesting, although while the Batmobile does not stand out too much, there are reasonable hopes for developing this superhero attribute. The same goes for Batman’s costume and cave – everything is modest but tasteful. The director notes that Bruce is just starting his journey and relies on practicality, not thinking about excesses, even if they could be really useful.
AND WHAT ABOUT THE JOKER?
You can supply the public with the evilest antagonists as much as you like, but let’s face it – without the Joker, Batman does not cause much interest. Many viewers perceive this film as a preparation for the battle of two sworn enemies, whose relationship has long gone beyond the banal confrontation between hero and villain.
In the movie “Batman” the Joker will probably not appear in the frame – his time has not come yet. However, there are rumors that Matt Reeves will make a good start on the next parts of the franchise and create a scene that foreshadows the imminent arrival of Bruce’s main enemy. Also, in the trailer, we see hooligans painted in clown makeup, which means that the Joker is not forgotten by the authors and is just waiting in the wings.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Many are interested in what awaits us after the premiere of the tape “Batman.” It’s trendy to create entire franchises, and the director is aiming for a trilogy. However, the final decision will depend on the audience – if there is an unexpected box office failure, the project will be pushed away until better times. However, such an outcome is unlikely. Films about superheroes are now making good money.
Two more projects can interest the public in the future. Right now, work is underway on a series that will tell about the everyday life of the Gotham police. An influx of stars is not expected, but Matt Reeves will work on the project as a screenwriter, which means he will establish a connection with the tape with Batman.
Another series is on the way, which has much more prospects because Colin Farrell will return to the image of the Penguin. The spin-off is doomed to success thanks to the presence of a world-famous star in the title role, and Oswald Cobblepot is interesting to the bulk of the audience.
Top 10 Films That Were Not Believed In, But They Blew Up World Cinema.
Cinema is, first of all, a profitable business. Studios are ready to invest great money in their projects, counting on the return on rental. However, there are also many films produced, the success of which is quite difficult to predict. It’s time to talk about projects that managed to win the audience’s hearts despite the penny budgets and low level of ambition.
What is the secret of such films? Original ideas, a successful marketing campaign, attractive actors, or the sum of these factors guarantee the ultimate success. It is not necessary to seriously invest in a tape for it to become desirable for the audience, and the films listed below are an explicit confirmation of this.
MY BIG GREEK WEDDING
IMDb – 6.6
Before the release of this film, it was simply impossible to imagine how great his success would be. Of course, the modest budget did not imply the participation of stars of the first magnitude in the project. However, the film managed to shoot at the box office, earning over 350 million in US currency, and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay.
Tula is a girl of Greek origin who lives in Chicago with a large family. The main character has long wanted to meet the man of her dreams and get married, so she is simply crazy with happiness when the American Ian pays attention to her. However, the guy will have to make a lot of efforts to show his best side in front of the orthodox parents of the chosen one.
IMDb – 7.1
Before us is a picture from which the domestic audience undoubtedly expected more. The tape “Don’t Breathe” turned out to be a solid thriller with ” horror elements,” and its budget was a modest 10 million. The director lured Stephen Lang into the lead role, even though he was not an exciting start. The lion’s share of filming occurred within the same location, and the viewer expected to see another film of average quality. It’s not every day that you see a blind veteran defending a home from young people who decide to take advantage of his vulnerable position. Also, the picture is rich in unexpected twists that make the viewer change their attitude toward the characters in viewing.
IMDb – 6.9
Logically, it was simply impossible to predict the success of Mad Max. There were only 300 thousand dollars, a few shabby cars and motorcycles, and a pair of leather suits at the director’s disposal. The cars were repainted on the go to use them in other scenes, and the actors were dressed together, bringing wardrobe items from home. Mel Gibson starred in the lead role.
Despite all the difficulties, George Miller made a fantastic action movie, which is already considered a classic of cinema, got sequels, and managed to surprise. At the box office, Mad Max earned over $100 million, an incredibly high-profile success with an acute shortage of resources.
IMDb – 7.3
As you know, “Split” is the second film of the trilogy in a series of such films as “Invulnerable” and “Glass.” When it became clear that the film series returned after 16 years, public expectations were extremely high. However, a modest budget – only 9 million in green currency did not allow counting on any frills. However, the director managed to assemble a very decent cast. The pair of James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy managed to play convincingly enough to pull the film to new heights.
Kevin has multiple personality disorders – completely different people whose worldviews fit his mind. A man kidnaps three girls to sacrifice them and summon his next alter ego, the Beast, whom he considers the pinnacle of human evolution.
IMDb – 7.7
It is necessary to return to another masterpiece, which was completely unexpectedly successful. Get Out is Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, so the picture didn’t claim to be something serious. A modest budget of 4.5 million did not allow for much acceleration, and acting became the cornerstone. Daniel Kaluuya, who embodied the image of the main character, did not disappoint – sometimes, the guy looked extremely convincing. The film plays up the theme of transferring a person’s consciousness into another’s body and the opportunity to ensure immortality in this way. Chris becomes a victim of a family that put such operations on stream, and now he will have to try very hard to get out of this mess unscathed.
DIFFICULTIES IN TRANSLATION
IMDb – 7.7
Some call this picture brilliant, while others fall asleep already 10 minutes after the start of viewing. Why are viewers’ opinions so different? Such melodramas should be studied in a certain, appropriate mood. Only then can one appreciate the full range of emotions generated by Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. If you are not interested in delving into the details of the film “Lost in Translation,” it will seem like another “rogue.” The picture tells about a chance meeting of two lonely people who are no longer satisfied with their own lives. However, do not count on a typical ending – it can surprise even an experienced viewer. The public voted for the film with their feet and brought the studio almost 120 million in green currency.
IMDb – 8
This film is a sensation in its purest form. The result is simply unbelievable, given that the layman, jaded with blockbusters, does not have much sympathy for such melodramas. However, the facts speak for themselves – almost 380 million conventional units were earned by the creators of the tape. The film tells how Jamal advances in the famous TV show to the public’s surprise. Everyone thinks that the guy is cheating, so he will have to tell his own story of growing up in the hellish slums of Mumbai, where any information can find a person, regardless of his will.
IMDb – 8.1
Many people know that one of the most iconic films was considered a very risky undertaking. The script for “Rocky” was written by Sylvester Stallone in just a couple of days. The actor wanted to play the main character so much that he gave the studio an appropriate request, and the filmmakers had to give in. As a result, Stallone had to involve members of his family and relatively famous people who wanted to appear on the screen as a cameo. However, the story of a talented boxer turned out to be so attractive that it pulled in 225 million in US currency and received 3 Oscars.
IMDb – 8.5
Many will say that “Obsession” is one of the best near-musical films of our time and will not be far from the truth. The picture gushes with strong emotions, forcing the viewer to squeeze into a chair from an excess of adrenaline. The film’s box office is not too high – 49 million, but it must be taken into account that almost 15 times less was spent on shooting. It is worth adding 3 more Oscar figurines and the boundless love of cinema fans. Andrew is an incredibly talented drummer who dreams of becoming great. He stubbornly goes to the goal and begins to play in the orchestra with a recognized master, famous for his eccentric behavior. The methods of a genius can hardly be called pedagogical, so Andrew will have to be patient so as not to break down psychologically.
IMDb – 8.9
The cult film “Pulp Fiction” by the cult director Quentin Tarantino with cult actors in the lead roles had few chances of success. Tarantino’s films are always a separate genre of art; Quentin skillfully manages images, relying on the visual component. Pulp Fiction is kitsch, a crude spoof of pulp novels, but the tape has reached the audience’s hearts, earned almost 214 million conventional units, and found its fan base.
