Captive State, 2019 - ★

The concept is cool (it has a raw present day Alien Invasion feel similar to District 9). The effects are ok (despite shotty cinematography). But the Achilles's heal in director Rupert Wyatt's sci fi mess is a murky convoluted plot that never takes flight. So many useless characters are introduced and we don't care at all about any of the featured ones. At the end I was just happy that it was over and I didn't have to care about this movie anymore.

Wildlife, 2018 - ★★★½

Dano has a real eye for direction and Oxenbold is a future star. The story is a little muddled and not much of a payoff at the end. Decent film though.
