Cape Town – It’s new movie time again!

The box office promises an Academy Award nominated musical as well as a funny local flick nationwide.

Also releasing is the long awaited sequel for Vin Diesel’s XXX and an A-list cast film that could be a letdown.

Here are 4 new films to watch at the local box office:

Movie: La La Land

Our rating: 4 /5

Short review: La La Land has thrust musicals back into the spotlight and it's glorious.

Movie: Collateral Beauty

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Despite an A-list cast with flawless performances, Collateral Beauty is a beautiful concept that got squashed into a generic drama that vastly underestimated its audience.

Movie: Hoener met die Rooi Skoene

Our rating: 3/5

Short review:  If you can get past the shrillness of the leading lady, Hoener met die Rooi Skoene is a fun detective noir film filled with classic Afrikaans wit.

Movie: XXX

Our rating:  1/5

Short review: The whole film is filled with mindless, beyond unrealistic, video game type special effects, dull acting and no screenplay or proper story.
