Gravity 9/10
Resolution 8/10

Highly recommend Resolution, streaming on Netflix. A guy goes off to find his meth-addicted friend at his remote cabin and chains him up in an effort to clean him out. This sets up the film, but there's still 90 minutes to go. I suggest going in blind, but for those who don't mind damning praise with a spoiler: this is the mumblecore Cabin in the Woods, right down to even a few beats and plot subversions (don't read the Latin!). The difference here is, the film is played for laughs and tension in equal measure, and its slower, story-focused pace means the lulls in between frights are the focus, and the scares (albeit small ones) push the narrative along and figure into the story. end spoiler
