10 Cloverfield Lane, 2016

Directed by: Dan Trachtenberg

Starring: John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher Jr.

IMDb

Really enjoyed it. The most stand out feature was the performances, particularly John Goodman’s (not to discredit Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who was also excellent). His performance and the way the film was directed and edited brought a fantastic level of intensity. The writing was also excellent, it had me constantly going back and forth on whether I thought Goodman’s character was telling the truth or not, and didn’t really figure it out until it was revealed, which was refreshing for a hollywood film.

My only criticism is in a CGI effect which is so ridiculously out of place in this highly realistic film that it’s almost laughable. This doesn’t spoil the film as a whole though, and I highly recommend you check it out.
