Movie: Kanarie

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: Another fantastic film by Christiaan Olwagen, Kanarie is a beautiful local portrayal of shedding the internal oppression ingrained by the Apartheid regime.

Movie: The Hate U Give

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: The Hate U Give is the one movie everyone should see - it is a story that makes headlines every day and will give viewers a glimpse of what people who are living this go through.

Amandla Stenberg in The Hate U Give.

Movie: Papillon

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: By falling between being a “good” film and a “fun” film, this remake of ‘70s true-life prison drama is never as good as its individual parts would suggest it should be.

Rami Malek in Papillon

Movie: The Titan

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: All the honourable intentions in the world don’t stop The Titan from being a dramatically inert, boring and ultimately insultingly stupid indie sci-fi misfire.
