    Custody

    ★★★★★

    Not a horror film in the conventional sense,this film about the custody battle between an estranged couple over their son, who doesn't want to see his father, is tense throughout, leading to a final act, that it as suspenseful, gripping and scary than many thrillers or horror films can achieve.

    With stunning performances and direction, Custody is one of the best films of the year.

  • Battle: Los Angeles

    Battle: Los Angeles

    ★★★½

    Basically a war film with soldiers fighting aliens on the streets of Los Angeles. The action is well staged, the freeway battle the standout, though the characters and dialogue are often cliched.

    I still like it a lot though.

    An astonishing, blistering film brilliantly written and directed by Damien Chazelle and with two gripping performances at it's heart from Miles Teller and J. K. Simmons.
