Cape Town – It's a blockbuster packed offering at the cinema this weekend with six new flicks releasing.

The Oscar nominated, Room, a horror about a life-sized doll, the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy shot in SA, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Gerard Butler and an Afrikaans thriller – there's plenty to see.

Here are the 6 new movies releasing in South Africa today:

Movie: Room

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: Room is a roller-coaster of tear-jerking lows and bitter sweet highs, watch it this weekend with a friend and a strong drink and a big box of tissues.

Movie: Grimsby

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: Grimsby is an awful film, for the sake of your intelligence, your dignity and your sense of humour, rather go see real comedy at your local comedy club.

Movie: The Boy

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: By refusing to allow its dark fantasy story to organically play itself out, The Boy dooms itself by appealing to neither hardcore horror fans nor anyone looking for something a bit more subtle.

Movie: Solace

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Solace is an unremarkable film that fell foul of inexperience and disinterest, and one should always be weary of films that make it to our shores months after its release in the US.

Movie: Gods of Egypt

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Gods of Egypt is just amiable enough to save it from the bottom of the trash heap but let's not kid, this is embarrassing stuff.

Movie: Die Ontwaking

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: A game-changer for the Afrikaans film industry, Die Ontwaking will have you feeling all kinds of scared at the edge of your seat.
