We're more than halfway through the year, and the first seven months of 2023 have already brought moviegoers some real cinematic delights. There have been action-adventure pictures like "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves," horror movies like "Scream 6," "The Boogeyman," and "The Blackening," and iconic animated adventures like "Nimona" and "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse." For romance fans, movies like "Past Lives" and "Rye Lane" have been knockouts. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon reunited for April's "Air," and Halle Bailey brought Ariel to a new generation of children in May's live-action "The Little Mermaid."

July brought some absolute heavy hitters, including "Barbie" and "Oppenheimer." We're also looking forward to a lot of movies that are currently scheduled for the end of the year, including "Killers of the Flower Moon," but studios have been delaying release dates in response to the ongoing actors' and writers' strikes. Though some of our moviegoing future for the rest of the year is up in the air, we want to celebrate all the best that cinema has had to offer us so far in 2023.

Ahead, these are POPSUGAR's 14 favourite movies of the year so far, ranked.
