Cape Town – The wait is finally over the new James Bond flick can finally be seen on the big screen.

Channel24 Movies presents our handy weekend flick guide to keep you in the know of what’s showing at the movies this weekend.

For the non Bond fans there’s some romance, a comedy and a thriller to see too.

Here are the 5 new movies releasing in South Africa today:

Movie:  Spectre

Our rating:  3/5

Short review:  Overlong, messy and somewhat uncertain of itself, Spectre may not be an entirely satisfying followup to the outright excellent Skyfall, but it has more than enough great stuff to work as a mid-range, good James Bond film.

Movie:  Before We Go

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Chris Evens makes a good directing debut in this unconventional, drama filled romantic comedy.

Movie: Rock the Kasbah

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Without Bill Murray, Rock the Kasbah would have been a dreary fictionalised version with non-descript characters of an acclaimed documentary.

Movie: Testament of Youth

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: It’s a graceful film that delicately explores dark themes and the real-life hell that robbed a whole generation of their youth.

Movie:  Return to Sender

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: Rosamund Pike tries very hard to engage the audience but the script and plot let her down.
