A couple of days ago, I cherrypicked 10 movies that Plugged In will be especially interested in reviewing this year. But let’s be honest: with literally hundreds of films on the docket for 2022—not counting the hundreds more coming to such streaming services as Netflix and Disney+the blog was just a semi-adequate starting point. If there’s a movie you’re interested in seeing, we’re interested in seeing it, too. And we let you know and talk about some more of those hotly anticipated flicks on this episode of our lovely Plugged In Show.

And if that’s not enough to perk up your antennae, stick around and listen to Adam Holz’s conversation with Skillet frontman John Cooper, where they chat about Skillet’s new album, Dominion—and the two talk about the importance of entertainment choices, too. (I’m assuming that, since Adam and John have talked together so much over the years, the next Plugged In interview with Cooper will be over Thanksgiving dinner.)

So listen in, if you would—and let us know what movies you’re looking forward to this year—or what movies you’re a little nervous about. You can comment below or chime in on Facebook and/or Instagram. We’re always happy to read an email (sent to [email protected]), too.

  1. -More than anything I wanna see the tragedy of Macbeth and licorice pizza, but sadly they ain’t playing in Bakersfield, and since I don’t do streaming guess I’ll have to wait for the DVD releases of them. Besides those I hope the new fantastic beasts movie and the new minions finally come out sometime this year. And of course if Clint Eastwood wants to come out with something new I’ll be there first in line. That is all, lol.

    1. -Licorice Pizza is fantastic! PTA’s warmest and most easygoing movie yet. Haven’t seen The Tragedy of Macbeth yet, but can’t wait.

    2. -Any specific reason you don’t do streaming? I know for me I didn’t do streaming for the longest time since I lived in a rural area.

  2. -It costs extra money where cable is expensive enough, and I only have a regular non smart TV where I do my TV and movie watching on, and a cheap Walmart tablet which I use to go online. So I suppose I could also wait for the movies to get to one of my basic cable channels or maybe wait for it to get down to less than five dollars or so on spectrum on-demand. But it’ll probably just be easier to rent the DVD of it from my local library for two bucks and see it that way. Before the pandemic I used to see upwards of twenty films at the theater, but since this whole thing started I’ve only seen Spirit untamed, boss baby two, peter rabbit two, and cry macho, a whopping four movies in almost two years time. A big humongous change is putting it mildly, lol.

  3. -Basically I only have a small non smart TV with basic cable attached to it, a cheap Walmart tablet, and that’s it. Streaming on such small screens just doesn’t make sense to me, and basic cable and WiFi costs enough, so I basically wait for movies to either come to cable or to DVD so I can rent them for two bucks from the library. Either way does me just fine.
