Mama (2013, dir. Andy Muschietti)

Two girls, feared lost for five years, are found feral in an isolated cabin. Generally effective jumpscare horror, impressive in its first acts, though increasingly awkward in plot event terms and tone as the melodrama develops. Some very neat moments, though.

Zero Dark Thirty (2012, dir. Kathryn Bigelow)

A dramatisation of the hunt for and killing of Osama Bin Laden. Sober and focused, with an eye for detail and on the selling of its version of events as truth through the use of faux documentary techniques, this works as an intelligent thriller throughout.

Miss Sloane (2016, dir. John Madden)

A ruthless Washington lobbyist goes against the pro-gun lobby. Initially intriguing though ultimately glib dramatic thriller with good performances and a sense of seriousness undone by an unbelievable third act.

Molly’s Game (2017, dir. Aaron Sorkin)

The true story of Molly Bloom, who ran high-stakes poker games in New York and LA. Excellent drama, balanced by a fine central performance and swaggering writing, chronicling a perhaps typical rise and fall-style story, but done with class and confidence.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War (2016, dir. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan)

Sidequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, minus the first film’s lead. Oddball attempt to craft a continuation; good casting in depth helps a bit, but the story’s a secondhand grab-bag of old tales that have been better retold by others.
