(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – While 2022 does have plenty to offer, many of this year’s film lineup consists of sequels to and reboots of pictures that many do not find necessary. Let’s take a look at the five most unnecessary movies set to be released this year.


Why, why, why on earth is Michael Bay making another movie? I feel like the only good movies he has ever made was the first “Transformers” movies and “13 Hours” and the only cool things to happen in those movies were the explosions.

Even with an A-list actor such as Jake Gyllenhaal starring in the movie, I don’t think I can do another one. I’m sorry, but I can’t.

4. “Lightyear”

I hate putting this movie here. The “Toy Story” franchise has a very special place in not only my heart, but my family’s heart as it is something that we grew up watching together.

After “Toy Story 4” though, I felt the Buzz and Woody’s story finally came to a decent, and somewhat satisfying conclusion. While the animation looks gorgeous and Chris Evans is playing the Space Ranger, I instantly knew they were making this for the money, and I don’t want to see my childhood become a shameless cash-grab.

3. “Jurassic World: Dominion”

The original Jurassic Park is undoubtedly one of the best monster movies ever. It has stunning visual effects, an amazing soundtrack, and a well written story.

 Anything that follows that movie does not have that. I mean sure, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” wasn’t horrible but “Jurassic Park 3” and the first two “Jurassic World” movies were utter garbage.

At this point, I am exhausted by these killer dinosaurs wreaking havoc. I think it’s time for this long running franchise to finally go extinct.

2. “Morbius”

The “Spider-man” franchise is one of the biggest media franchises of all time, thanks in part to their amazing villains. However, there is a noticeable lack in quality with their “Spider-man” spin-offs.

The “Venom” films have garnered more than their fair share of negative reviews due to their awful screenplays, CGI, and comedy. I wouldn’t be surprised if this movie followed the same beats as “Venom” or “Venom: Let there be Carnage,” so I won’t be seeing this flick anytime soon.

1. “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania”

Where do I start with this one? I loved the first “Hotel Transylvania” but anything after that just can’t capture the magic of the first movie for me.

It’s like the “Minions” movie or any of the “Despicable Me” movies. The over-the top humor, the fart jokes, and the god-awful acting. This film franchise should have stayed dead after the first one.
