Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
3/5 49% The Promise (2017) The dichotomy between the love story and historical tragedy could have better done and that the immense acting talent of the three leads was a little bit lost with an overall production that landed with a soft thud instead of a punch. ‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

5/5 99% Get Out (2017) This horror flick is so beautifully shot that I found myself wanting to go to that horrible house, where the film takes place, just to soak it all in.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/4 76% Miss Sloane (2016) To find a political thriller lead by a strong female character is a rarefied thing in Hollywood. So I was excited to go and watch this movie, but I can't say that it was all that I expected.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 No Score Yet Kalushi: The Story of Solomon Mahlangu (2016) It might not be perfect but it gets a lot right.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 79% T2 Trainspotting (2017) Expect lots of monologues and moans from middle-aged men, but in an entertaining way. I think the best part of this film was just getting to be in this world again.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

5/5 98% Moonlight (2016) Moonlight is extraordinary because it showcases the different ways of coming of age (and the difficult stages of life that come afterwards) in a creative way.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) As much as I think that the first Lego Movie was better than this one I would say that if you have kids, especially if they are into superheroes, then take them to see this. Or, if you're an adult who likes slapstick laughs, then this is for you.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 7% Fallen (2017) Anyone who has watched more than one love story on stage or screen will have seen this story before.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 98% Zootopia (2016) This animated feature might not be like the Cinderella Disney of old or the newer (Pixar) Disney of Inside Out but it is charming, smart and funny.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) This movie felt a lot like indulging in fast food on a Friday night after a long week of everything going wrong; a guilty pleasure, that I knew wasn't all that good, but I liked it anyway (sort of).‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 70% Café Society (2016) !f you like watching Woody Allen films you'll enjoy this one as it does stand out among some of his better work.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 25% Ben-Hur (2016) While this movie is not perfect, it's not awful.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

4/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) Will you laugh? For sure. Will you also cringe and feel like a line was crossed? Probably, but hey, don't say I didn't warn you.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

4/5 No Score Yet Noem My Skollie (2016) If you don't speak Afrikaans and also don't like reading subtitles, then you might have a tough time watching this film, but please try. It will be worth it.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) If you are looking for a movie that you don't have to concentrate while watching on date night then this might be the one for you, but otherwise in a year with a lot of strong cinematic offerings, avoid it. ‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 37% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) This movie works for its target demographic, not work on multiple levels for multiple demographics, like Finding Dory or Inside Out.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

4/5 94% Finding Dory (2016) For all its faults I think that Finding Dory is the best animated feature of the year thus far.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 23% The Boss (2016) Sometimes McCarthy tries too hard to save a film that has gaping plot holes, poor character development and some jokes that just don't land.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

0/5 15% Regression (2016) I want to think of reasons for you to pay your hard earned cash to go see this film but I am struggling.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

5/5 94% Room (2015) It is, without question, a horrible story but it is well told and incredibly well acted by Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 48% Freeheld (2015) It is a story about equality and also an almighty tearjerker that left me in a pool of tears.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

4/5 94% Carol (2015) You should watch this film if you enjoy being transported to a different world. If you want to get that butterfly feeling in the pit of your stomach then maybe watch this film.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 68% The Danish Girl (2015) [Vikander] delivers some of my favourite moments -- tears, snot, stockings and all.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

1/5 9% Norm of the North (2016) One could argue that a four year old or younger would enjoy it but one would be underestimating the intelligence of a toddling audience.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)
