Rachel Syens

2022 is in the books, which means it’s time to celebrate the best pop culture picks of the year!

Here at Think Christian, we believe that there is no such thing as secular in our favorite movies, whether they’re set in the multiverse or on a tiny Irish island. From Nope to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, from The Fabelmans to After Yang, here is a complete list of our favorite 2022 movies, as chosen by Think Christian contributors and followers. You’ll also find links to the films we wrote about on the website. The TC podcast team discusses a number of this year’s favorites on our Best Movies of 2022 episode. You can find it via Apple, Spotify, and YouTube.
