There’s a particular type of annoyance that comes with trying to find something to watch while having your dinner. You want the movie and the eating to start at the same time, and yet, there are so many film options that it just never seems to work out that way. Suddenly, your salad is gone while you’re still scrolling, or your pizza gets cold while you google “best movies ever” for the millionth time. (Like I said, a very particular type of annoyance.) To help make those what-to-watch decisions a little bit easier this year, below you’ll find 10 of the most-anticipated Netflix original movies of 2022.
