Kanarie

2018-10-16 14:27

Another fantastic film by Christiaan Olwagen, Kanarie is a beautiful local portrayal of shedding the internal oppression ingrained by the Apartheid regime. Read More »

The Hate U Give

2018-10-16 14:27

The Hate U Give is the one movie everyone should see - it is a story that makes headlines everyday and will give viewers a glimpse of what people who are living this go through. Read More »

 

Papillon

2018-10-16 14:27

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.  Read More »

The Titan

2018-10-16 14:27

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.  Read More »

 

A Star Is Born

2018-10-05 07:04

The third remake of one of Hollywood’s oldest stories as directed and co-written by that guy from the Hangover has no business being anywhere near this great. The race for the Best Picture Oscar begins here. Read More »

Aya is a dark thriller that instills such dread as to feel scared of your own shadow in an underground parking lot.  Read More »

Cut-Out Girls

2018-10-11 12:23

The film is an exceptional example of a story – shared by millions of women and men globally – that is best told without graphic violent images.  Read More »

 

Venom

2018-09-28 08:03

A terrible throwback to the worst superhero films of years gone by, the only good thing about Venom is a five minute coda at the end of the credits that have nothing to do with the film itself.  Read More »

The Forgiven

2018-09-28 08:03

Despite Forest Whitaker playing an unconvincing Desmond Tutu and an inconsistent storyline, The Forgiven is a powerful portrayal of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission days. Read More »
