Here are 7 new movies showing in South Africa:


Movie: The Loft

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Trashy nonsense, it may be, but The Loft is also a fun, sexy throwback to the very un-PC era of the pulps and trashy murder mysteries.

Movie: How to Make Love Like an Englishman

Our rating:  2/5

Short review:  It looks nice and Brosnan and McDowell are good for a couple of laughs but, in spite of its cool title, How to Make Love Like an Englishman ranks as one of the year's most forgettable romantic comedies.

Movie: Blinky Bill

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: To sum it up in one word the movie is just ‘nice’ and meets the clichéd positive and negative message that comes with an animated movie.  It easily fits the bill as a family excursion that the little ones will enjoy.

Movie: Grandma

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Centred on a typically brilliant performance by Lily Tomlin, Grandma is a heartfelt, witty and understated gem.

Movie: The Program

Our rating: 2/5

Short review:  The Program drowns itself by not allowing any insight into the effects of a life lived through fame and infamy, yet only tells us a story we know.

Movie: Learning to Drive

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Learning to Drive is a good date movie. Or maybe good for someone who has just been through a break-up. Probably a bit of both.

Movie: Brooklyn

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: A sweet love story set in 1950s New York; a young Irish migrant learns to let go of a home she has left behind.
