    Top Ten Films First Seen in 2022

    Someone's gotta do it.
    Blog!

    I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
    And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
    And everybody puttin' everybody else down
    And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

    1. Cold Water (1994, Olivier Assayas)

    This one will probably stay at or near the top for a while.

    Watchlisted. I had a rough start with Assayas until Irma Vep, now I'm on a hot streak with him.

    I am not a fan of Assayas - watched this because I watch whatever D'Angelo likes. I think he loves Assayas because of this one - sometimes first impressions go a long way. This one is a lot like a Dardenne brothers film - but it came first.

    Good movie, but the real title is just The Guns OF Navarone, Jules Winnfield...

    It's a three point difference between the two. I found Witch to be more interesting. I really liked both a lot.

    Peng, might the Evangelion movies be considered a replacement for the series? If possible, I'd prefer to skip the show and go straight to the movies.

    In a sense, yes, because the 2007 one almost functions as a film recap of the first section of the series, and then starts to diverge from it from the second film onwards (so if one day you would like to do the series + The End of Evangelion, it wouldn't feel too redundant apart from like the first six (short) episodes). I would be interested to hear from anyone whose first exposure to the Evangelion universe is with these Rebuild films (2007-2021) though, because I'm not sure if some of the condense plot bits in the 2007 film makes the film a bit less coherent, or that might just be because I'm already familiar with the more expansive plot points from the series.
