2021 & 2022 FILM RECAP // wrapping up all the fave movies and shows, 2022 stats and anticipated 2023 film & tv releases

I just need to thank you all for your patience and hopefully still caring about these kinds of posts even though I’m more than fashionably late. At least it’s not April aka a time I’ve definitely never posted so late *nervous laughter*

Anyways, I have quite a lot to cover today, so I’m keeping it as short as possible. Same as last year, we’ve also got anticipated 2023 releases. As well as an additional section for stats which I’m now obsessed with doing!!! I’m putting three posts into one here folks so I guess grab some popcorn and a beverage of choice because this could take a while.

Let’s jump right in!!!


Ugh gotta love Letterboxd but I’m not about to do 2021 with this so sticking to only last year’s films.

I also did my best to manually add shows but since I estimated episode length it’s probably not that accurate. I had to do a lot of maths on those hours so you all better appreciate haha. I actually converted them into total days which was only 3 and a half full days of watching, which is pretty small and I can’t decide if that’s good or bad lmao.

The next pie charts are also more or less estimated since I didn’t go and double-check numbers BUT the genres are across movies and shows. Ratings are only for films on Lettboxd and I used a website to calculate the average and it looked fine. So let’s hope those are accurate haha

Not too shabby if I say so myself *sighs*

Oh and Letterboxd gave me these, kinda interesting I guess? Idk how they get Jennifer Aniston since I only remember Picture Perfect. And James Cameron I think is from the two Avatars??? I wouldn’t know.

FAVOURITES OF 2021 & 2022

Because there are far too many to make a list and I also am too lazy to write something for each one, we’re switching up this year. I’m mixing both 2021 and 2022 watches together and just ranking the absolute favourites.

The shows consist of all the shows I’ve seen in the last 2 years since I don’t watch much. But the movies are just the favourites because as you saw before, I watched 66 movies last year alone so there’s no way.


Dash and Lily Season 1 // Sex Education Season 1 – 3 // The Chair Season 1 // High School Musical The Musical The Series Season 2 // Killing Eve Season 3 // Umbrella Academy Season 3 // House of The Dragon Season 1 // The Flatshare Season 1

6) Bridgerton Season 1  & 2
5) One of Us Is Lying Season 1  & 2
4) Heartstopper Season 1
3) The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 1
2) Shadow and Bone Season 1
1) Stranger Things 4 Volume 1 & 2


If you’re new here, I like to fill the official list with films that have come out in the last year or so, hence a special section to briefly mention films I’ve loved that might be older.

Interstellar (2014) // I, Tonya (2017) // 12 Years A Slave (2013) // Official Secrets (2019) // Sleeping With Other People (2015) // Penelope (2006) // A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) // What’s Your Number? (2011) // The French Dispatch (2021) // Raya and The Last Dragon (2021) // Cruella (2021) // Rosaline (2022) // Avatar: The Way of Water (2022) // Something From Tiffany’s (2022)

6) The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)
5) Don’t Look Up (2021)

    I love the graphs for all your watched content!! 😍 It is so interesting to see and I love the dedication! The total watched hours is cool, I feel like I watched so many TV shows last year, my hours are probably so high 🙈
    Ahh.. So cool to see your favourite shows!! I need to watch The Flatshare ASAP! I’m so excited!
    I just started House of the Dragon, only on episode 2 but I am loving the drama!
    I need to watch the Enola Holmes films too! Yep this post has just reminded me I need to watch more things 😆
    Ahh… 2023 content looks amazing. Daisy Jones 😍, Barbie, The Little Mermaid and Spider-Verse!! I can’t wait ✨

    • Ruby Rae Reads

      Sophie omg I love you!!!! Thank you so much for always being amazing. I promise I’ll catch up on your posts ❤️

      Welp I recommend HOTD but I,,, did not love The Flatshare. It didn’t have the same magic as the book and eh I didn’t buy their romance, though it was a well produced UK show : )

      Enola Holmes is SO MUCH FUN OMG PLEASE WATCH IT!!!! Also so many good ones out this year, especially excited for Daisy Jones and THE LITTLE MERMAID AHHHHH *insert heart eyes*

    Do you use a show tracking app? I use TV Time because they sorta have stats as well. Very helpful if you’re watching shows across streaming services etc (like me lol).
    I’m currently watching House of the Dragon and I’m enjoying it!
    I think I usually watch Miss Congeniality about every other month 😂
    yes Enola Holmes movies was so cute!!
    You People looks funny and I might watch it as soon as it comes out unlike every other new movie 😂

    The Last of Us is going to ruin me, I’m sure of it. I love Pedro Pascal so much and seeing him in any kind of peril is gonna be interesting lol.

  • Caro @ bookcheshirecat
