  1. The Shallows 2016

    This is exactly like The Revenant, except much more focused and actually able to get under my skin at times.

    Films with brutally simple plots (not simplistic, mind you) executed well seem to be a rare delight these days. Bonus points: under ninety minutes.

  2. John Wick: Chapter 2 2017

    A bit too much of the original’s blunt simplicity is missing here, but it’s still damn good. The mirrors scene is one for the ages.
