With that said, here are the 10 best Amazon Prime Original movies of 2022: House in a Fictional Ivy League School. Bishop and freshman Jasmine (Zoe Renee) are both killed by a Ghosts on campus. Unfortunately, the movie struggles with its overtly scary sequences. They're not that scary at all. However, the scene where Bishop and Jasmine are subjected to a barrage of micro-attacks is well-targeted and suitably hard to watch. The Master's Ending also never quite pulls together all themes it seeks to explore, but Hall's performance is one to watch.
My Cop is a disappointingly underwhelming but beautifully shot period romance. Set in the picturesque town of Brighton on England's south coast in the 1950s and 1990s, My Cop follows a policeman (Harry Styles), his wife (Abby the Crown) A complicated love triangle between Emma Corrin) and his lover (David Dawson), at a time when homosexuality was illegal. Both Corrin and Dawson are excellent, and while Styles is better here than in the disastrous Don't Worry Darling, he's still pretty awkward. My Cop is absolutely brilliant, though, thanks to cinematographer Ben Davies, who also shot Martin Macdonald's Enisherin this year.
9/10 My Policeman
Something From Tiffany's plays like a Hallmark Christmas movie with more charm, better acting, and a breakdown. Produced by rom-com superstar Reese Witherspoon, many "Something From Tiffany's" falls on the shoulders of star/executive producer Zoey Deutch (Not Cool), who effortlessly delivers an enjoyable lead performance reminiscent of other genre legends. The plot about temporary amnesia and engagement ring and present mix-ups is as silly as it is funny. No one can accuse Tiffany of something original, but it succeeds with great chemistry between the leads.
8/10 Something From Tiffany's
A film with a twist ending is a matter of life and death in its execution. Unfortunately, Don't Let Me Go's brutally twisty ending does little to spoil what was a stellar first hour and a half. John Cho stars in the equally tortuous Searching here as a terminally ill father determined to reunite his daughter (Mia Isaac) with her estranged mother. Isaac and Cho are terrific here, working hard on a familiar set of road trip movie tropes with seemingly endless charm. While Don't Let Me Go's twist does subvert its more clichéd territory, it unfortunately feels cheap emotionally. Fortunately, the central acting is so good that the ending hardly matters.
7/10 Don't Make Me Go
Thirteen Lives, Ron Howard's dramatization of the Tham Luang cave rescue, technically impressive but nowhere near his previous attempts Dramatize real-life events, such as Apollo 13. The eerily accurate Thirteen Lives also took a hit; the story has already been filmed by the Free Solo directorial team in their excellent film The Rescue. The production design and underwater cinematography of Thirteen Lives are excellent, and the cast is impressive, although the film did receive criticism for not focusing on the stranded Thai football team instead It was to focus on the white divers who rescued them.
6/10 Thirteen Lives
Goodnight Obie, co-produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, effectively captures his more family-friendly films like E.T. The incredible story of two Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, whose 90-day missions turned into 15 years. Good Night Oppy depicts the rovers through CG animation, clearly reminiscent of WALL-E, considering to the image of a cute robot in a desolate wasteland. Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) is an excellent narrator, insightful and enthusiastic as the talking leader for NASA scientists.
5/10 Good Night Oppy

3/10 I Want You Back

Not knowing how she got there, they decided not to call the police in order to avoid being a victim of police brutality through misunderstanding. Emergency has an excellent cast, led by RJ Cyler and Donald Elise Watkins, and a hilarious script. Urgent does an excellent job of going both comic and thrilling.

Poehler expertly mixes archival recordings, some of which have never been released before, with assorted luminaries such as Ball and Arnaz's children Bette Midler and Carol Burnett.
