Hello, fellow movie lovers! I saw a lot of new movies in 2022. AS USUAL! Anyway, I figured I might go ahead and rank my favorites. And I’ll also provide a quick summary of the falling-in-love journey I went through with each one of them.

In a brand new Mini-Episode series, Jeff is talking about the movies and shows he’s been watching lately that he and Aunt Beth haven’t covered on the full-length episodes (yet?). On this edition, We get into Barbarian, Don’t Worry Darling, Celebrity Jeopardy!, and the recent announcement about the Community movie.

‘Barbarian’ 4 LYFE

Director: Zach Cregger

Running Time: 107 Minutes

Rating: R

Release Date: September 9, 2022 (Theaters)

Right before seeing Barbarian, I got some fried ice cream for the first time at a place I’d been meaning to try for a while. And it was as delicious as I’d hoped for! So I took that as a wonderful portent that Barbarian would also be able to meet my sky-high expectations. So let me assure everyone quickly: it was a wonderful evening all around.

Barbarian is one of those movies where you don’t want to talk to folks who haven’t seen it in too much detail, because all the twisty surprises are so much fun to discover unspoiled. But unlike a lot of other movies of that ilk, there’s plenty to talk about without spoiling the monster. Like, I could mention that Justin Long is in it, and that he’s got a pretty significant part, despite not being in the trailer at all. And that spoils nothing! Well, it spoils Justin’s sudden, previously unannounced introduction. But that only amounts to about 1% spoilage. Anyway, how are there not more basement-based horror movies?

Grade: 476/500
