If there’s one person in this world whose opinions and thoughts still get publicized even after losing their job, it’s Barack Obama. Having formerly served as the 44th President of the United States of America for two consecutive terms, from 2009 to 2017, Obama is a man of many opinions and interests, and they’re still relevant to this day.
One of the many pastimes that the politician took solace in after giving up his seat to Donald Trump in 2017 was annually releasing a list of what he thinks are the best movies and songs of the year. This year’s list for movies, however, has some notable omissions.

No The Batman Or Black Panther 2 In Barack Obama’s Favorite Movies Of 2022 Angers Fans
We’re officially 7 days away from the end of the current year, about to shift into a new year, and a fresh start is just on the horizon. The Christmas bells are jingling, the light of the festive season is burning as bright as ever, and Barack Obama‘s annual list of his favorite movies for the year is out too!
I saw some great movies this year – here are some of my favorites. What did I miss? pic.twitter.com/vsgEmc8cn8

There’s a lot to unpack here, but a notable inclusion is the much-awaited sequel to Top Gun-the Tom Cruise-led Top Gun: Maverick. Other than that we have Everything Everywhere All at Once, the highly acclaimed eye-catching comedy-drama movie led by Crazy Rich Asians star Michelle Yeoh. Other notable inclusions are Viola Davis’ The Woman King and the A24-produced After Yang.
But there are two movies, let alone the whole franchise, which cannot be seen in Barack Obama’s list of his favorite movies for the year 2022. It’s Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Matt Reeves’ The Batman, two major productions of DC Studios and Marvel Studios of 2022.
Of course, with the exclusion of such big blockbuster hits, DC fans and Marvel fans are going to be in complete disapproval of the former Illinois senator’s list, and boy are they loud on Twitter-
New Black Panther is better than half of these

Despite all the negative opinions about his list, fans have to understand that this is purely a subjective list, and honestly, it’s just his opinion man.
An Unfamiliar Movie Suggestion From Fans To Barack Obama
S. S. Rajamouli’s RRR is a spectacle. Directed by the highest-paid director in India, the movie is known for having become the most expensive Indian movie to date, having spent almost ₹550 crores in its production.
However, it was worth all the money spent as Rajamouli never misses. RRR got universal acclaim from movie fans worldwide who praised the Tollywood masterpiece for the cast’s performance, the background score, action sequences, and production quality among many other aspects of the movie.
Given that the movie is loved worldwide by avid cinema fans, it left the same fans dumbfounded when they didn’t see such a spectacular movie included in Barack Obama’s favorite movies of 2022. In fact, they’ve gone on to tell him to watch it!-

Barack Obama will eventually get down to it and watch the blockbuster movie, maybe he’ll even update his list soon after watching it!
RRR is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
