Metacritic’s Best Movies & TV Shows of 2022

Metacritic's Best Movies & TV Shows of 2022

Metacritic has joined the flashmob with its traditional annual summaries – the popular rating aggregator has ranked the best movies and series of 2022.

The Metacritic team formed its own ratings for films and series in 2022 based on lists and reviews from leading publications and film-related sites such as Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Empire, IndieWire, The Observer, etc. At the same time, Metacritic applied its own methodology and distributed points as follows:

  • 3 points for first place;
  • 2 points for the second;
  • 1 point for 3-10th place in the rating or entering the unranked list (no more than 10 titles);
  • 0.5 points for entering the unranked list of 20 titles for movies/series and the unranked list of series with distribution by individual genres (no more than 10 titles).

Both lists are not final and will be updated during December and January after the publication of new ratings. As of December 8, Metacritic has processed 24 separate TV series ratings and 32 movie ratings from various publications/sites.

So far, the film rating is headed by “Aftersun” – the feature debut of the Scottish director and screenwriter Charlotte Wells. This is a dramatic story about the relationship between a father and a daughter, which won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. In second place is the musical drama “Tar” by Todd Field with Cate Blanchett in the lead role, and the horror film “Now” directed by Jordan Peele closes the top three. As for series, the first place is held by the famous series “Better Call Saul”, which ended in 2022 with the sixth season. Ben Stiller’s sci-fi psychological thriller The Divide, starring Adam Scott, made for Apple TV+, and Christopher Storer’s FX/Hulu comedy-drama The Bear are a few points behind.
