Winter Movie Guide 2022-2023

It’s that time again, where we look at the upcoming movies. Winter is always a bit of a dud season for movies. Summer has the blockbusters, Fall has the Award-bait, Spring usually is full of good family friendly stuff. This winter is following that pattern, where I think I’ll be on the lookout for about two of these. You might find some pleasant unknowns, though.

Babylon

A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess, it traces the rise and fall of multiple characters during an era of unbridled decadence and depravity in early Hollywood.

Every few years there is a party movie. Wolf of Wall Street, Great Gatsby, most stoner comedies. This seems like the new party movie. So if you want to watch attractive celebrities have a good time, Babylon is the perfect film.

It’s New Years Eve, there’s nothing new in theaters.

M3GAN

What if Chucky was made by the same people that made Black Mirror?

January 13

Plane

A pilot finds himself caught in a war zone after he’s forced to land his commercial aircraft during a terrible storm.

Not to be confused with Airplane (1980).

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne, along with Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, explore the Quantum Realm, where they interact with strange creatures and embark on an adventure that goes beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.

I’m having a hard time with Phase 4, but make sure you go watch the Loki show before you see this.

February 24

Cocaine Bear

An oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists, and teens converge in a Georgia forest where a 500-pound black bear goes on a murderous rampage after unintentionally ingesting cocaine.

Do you remember the meme? They turned it into a movie.

65

An astronaut crash lands on a mysterious planet only to discover he’s not alone.

What is that on the hinge of the clapperboard? Is that what I think it is?

March 17

Shazam! Fury of the Gods

The film continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.

Oh man, how are there two superhero movies, from different universes, and I’m interested in neither? Did I change, or did the movies change?

What meme do you think should be made into a movie next? Let me know in the comments below!
