The Best Home Theater Movies & Shows of 2022

2022 was a huge year for both streaming and physical media, one of which we may never see the likes of again. But which movies and TV series provide the best home theater experiences? Ralph from AVS Forum, DJ from Brightside Home Theater, and Jeff from HD Report sat down to discuss this topic on The Brightside YouTube podcast (watch below).

How were the titles ranked? To determine the best from our shortlists (a total of 15 titles from each of us with 5 being honorable mentions) we used a tabulating system in which the lowest score determined the winner. This is a system that DJ put together and worked great for this venue. 

Among the main factors used to determine the best home theater experiences were video image quality, audio quality, and overall movie experience. On the audio side, you have surround sound offering at least 5.1 channels but that in many cases features immersive Dolby Atmos. On the visual side, you have Dolby Vision and HDR10 that can expand the color depth on screens and projectors that support the format. 

Just to reiterate what was mentioned above, we combined physical media with streaming media this year since streaming has become so much better in terms of home media technology (4k, HDR, Atmos). Bitrates still aren’t as high as physical media (usually about a third of what 4k Blu-ray offers) but improvements in video compression have really made a difference.

This was a huge year for home entertainment, but we’ve narrowed it down to what we think are the best home theater experiences from 2022. Agree? Disagree? Want to add a title? Comment in the YouTube video or at the end of the list to let us know your thoughts!
