Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 No Score Yet Die Rebellie van Lafras Verwey (2017) Die Rebellie van Lafras Verwey just couldn't make itself watchable or entertaining, and tried too hard to mimic the unique style of veteran South African directors like Katinka Heyns and Jans Rautenbach. ‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 No Score Yet Your Romeo (Jou Romeo) (2016) Besides the charming and talented leads, the film had a strong supporting cast and fresh script that might have used some clichéd American plot points, but the writers gave it enough of a spin that it didn't feel rehashed.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Will you cry? Probably. Is Jessica Chastain amazing? Of course. Will it make any mark on the awards circuit? Not really.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 0% The Disappointments Room (2016) Lacklustre and pretty average, The Disappointments Room disappoints where there wasn't really any expectations to begin with. Beckinsale is still a queen though.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

1/5 23% Collide (2017) A terribly lacklustre action offering that seems to punish the cast for agreeing to be a part of it.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) A Dog's Purpose attempts to tap into that almost universal love for our canine companions... but instead just makes the audience watch a lot of dogs die without a meaningful connection with the audience. ‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 21% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) Underworld: Blood Wars is all about the slicing, shooting and mauling. Unfortunately, what I enjoyed about the others was missing in this one, and that is the love stories that were weaved into the action.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 59% Alone in Berlin (2017) The quiet rebellion made up of mutinous messages did not need big heroics or exploding tanks to keep the audience enthralled -- it only needed the flair of the art-noir and a creative hand with the camera. ‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 0% Max Steel (2016) If you're stuck with babysitting your kid-sister/brother, then Max Steel can while away the time until your parents get back from their date night.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

2/5 11% When the Bough Breaks (2016) Director Jon Cassar might have made a big name for himself with his Emmy-winning series 24, but he clearly didn't make every second count in When the Bough Breaks.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

4/5 83% Julieta (2016) What's so great about Julieta is how the plot unravels to reveal little things that the audience has to piece together themselves, without the movie fully explaining it all.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)

3/5 88% Don't Breathe (2016) I wouldn't rank it in my top list of horror movies (I do prefer the more fantastical kind), if you lean more towards the human element of terror, this film will make you very aware of your breathing and racing heart.‐ Channel24 (South Africa)
