LIZL LOMBAARD: The fourth instalment in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: Age of Extinction, starts off spectacularly, especially if you get a chance to see it in 3D.

Set four years after the battle in Chicago, the movie revolves around the CIA, who are now trying to track down all forms of robots, regardless if they’re Autobots or Decepticons. The Autobots are aided by their human alliances and an intense action plot follows in a struggle to restore balance to the world.

PUMLA KALIPA: Movie lovers still depressed by the closing of Cinema Zone are in for a treat. Cinemas have historically struggled to survive in Grahamstown and this was reason enough to inspire four members of the ‘Grahamstown Book club’ to create a space where films can air without the danger of being shut down. This newfound endeavour, the Film Club, opened its doors on 16 May at the St Andrews College.

YANGA TYIKWE: With a rather unlikely ensemble of Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton and rapper Nicki Minaj, the audience may raise their eyebrows before the film begins, but they will be pleasantly surprised at this hilarious but sadly romantic film.

The Other Woman, in a nutshell, follows the story of a husband, a wife, and his mistresses as they get wind of his multiple shenanigans and plot their revenge against him.

The film starts with tough corporate lawyer, Carly (Cameron Diaz) uncharacteristically falling in love with her latest fling, the handsome Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Seeing that she is smitten with him, her father Frank (Don Johnson) advises her to go visit Mark. It is when she surprises him late one night - sexy plumber ensemble on - that she is greeted by his wife at the door and learns the horrifying truth that he is, in fact, married.

Jena Ascough: Fairy-tale and nursery rhymes are notoriously morbid, filled with abusive mothers (and stepmothers), cannibal witches who live in candy cottages, grandmother-eating wolves and, my personal nightmare, a creep named Wee Willy Winky who runs around knocking on children’s bedroom windows in the dead of night to tell them to go to sleep.

LIZL LOMBAARD: In our own backyard is a world filled with terror and uncertainty - a world where the line between life and death is so thin that it almost seems non-existent. This is the world portrayed by local movie Four Corners, directed by Ian Gabriel (Forgiveness).

Four Corners, which, in gang slang, refers to the four corners of a prison cell, follows four main characters and their separate encounters with gang violence in the Cape Flats until their paths inevitably meet up to create a riveting climax.
