Normally when the end of the year arrives, lists of the best films of the season are usually made. But apart from the triumphs, there are several disappointments of which much more was expected. Here we leave some of the biggest that 2022 has left us:
Do not worry dear
After making her debut with Supernerds Olivia Wilde’s career as a director was heading toward the top. However, Don’t worry, dear has sounded more for its behind-the-scenes controversies of her than for the merits of the director’s vision of her. With a predictable script and a proposal that has been exploited over and over again, few things can be saved from this dystopia set in the 50s, beyond a Florence Pugh who resists against all odds a simplistic vision of the struggle of genres.
The invisible agent
The invisible agent had everything to succeed as an action title, but it is undoubtedly one of the great disappointments that 2022 has left us. A bestseller, directed by the Russo brothers and a cast led by Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, and Ana de Armas has not been enough for the downturn that its viewing supposes. 200 million budget that Netflix will transform into a franchise.
Jurassic World: Dominion
You cannot live forever on nostalgia and the truth is that, far from having expectations for the nines, after two mediocre installments, the proposal to expand throughout the land of dinosaurs was quite interesting. Even the return of Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern wasn’t enough.
Actually, the Toy Story spin-off was promising because Pixar is usually synonymous with quality, with few flaws in its history. However, it seems that there was little interest in a feature film that responds to the film that the protagonist of the original film would see to want to have the Buzz doll. A strange premise and a very watered-down sci-fi adventure.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Taika Waititi revolutionized the MCU universe and gave the character of Thor a charismatic tone. A space adventure in which he reunited the Norse God with the Hulk and Loki while fighting the evil Hela. This fourth installment promised new doses of humor and the addition of the return of Natalie Portman. Unfortunately, the non-existent balance between humor and drama has made it one of the worst recent Marvel adaptations on the big screen.
