Cape Town – If you’re keen to move on from the Oscars flub then there are 6 new films in local cinemas to help you get over it.

Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart give their best performance in the highly anticipated super-hero film, Logan: The Wolverine.

There is also an art film biopic, a disappointing horror, an animation, some new local flavour and a mediocre take on an indie film.

Here are 6 new films at the local box office:

Movie:  Jackie

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: A challenging but powerful character-driven drama with what may just be Natalie Portman's best performance to date.

Movie: Logan: The Wolverine

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: As we say goodbye to the incredible Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart in the X-Men franchise, we say hello to a new wave of superhero films.

Movie: The Disappointments Room 

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: For a horror that’s more about the emotional state of its lead character than the ghost story, The Disappointments Room ironically lives up to its name.

Movie: Rock Dog

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Rock Dog doesn’t reinvent the wheel but it has heart and likeable characters.

Movie: Keeping Up with the Kandasamys

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Keeping up with the Kandasamys might be focused on the South African Indian community, but its hilarity and wit is relatable across all cultures.

Movie: The Hollars

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Throughout the film, it’s never quite clear what The Hollars was trying to be, and even as an indie film it didn’t really quite get the quirk factor right.
