Blair Witch

Director: Adam Wingard

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1540011

Review: A little too polished and cheats far more than it should, given the material, but brings a few nice things to the table and holds tension fairly well.

Watch it if: You can go back to found footage for the right property.

And if you liked: The Blair Witch Project, Mr. Jones, The Descent, As Above So, Below

Sully

Director: Clint Eastwood

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3263904

Review: Fairly thin and fluffy in its message but delivers some tension and emotion through a shaky plotline and helped with a strong and subtle lead performance.

Watch it if: You're ok with something that heightens the conflict for the sake of drama.

And if you liked: The Martian, Spotlight
