REVIEW: THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON: This Oscar-winning film is engrossing, but the emotional effect is dampened by sheer length and a few weak plot points.
REVIEW: THE WORLD UNSEEN: The World Unseen has generated considerable controversy in South Africa, but does this locally made film about two women in love warrant all the attention?
REVIEW: DOUBT: While occasionally a little stagey, which isn't surprising considering its origins, Doubt – starring Meryl Streep – proves to be a worthy participant in the Oscar race.
REVIEW: FROST/NIXON: Oscar buzz has surrounded director Ron Howard's latest docu-drama and its lead actors, but can it compete with the other films in the Best Picture category?
REVIEW: AUSTRALIA: Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman star in Baz Luhrmann's aesthetically pleasing, but not entirely satisfying epic.
REVIEW: TWILIGHT: If you truly want to enjoy this over-hyped and overlong teen vampire melodrama, feast your eyes on the pretty cast and ignore the awful dialogue.
REVIEW: QUANTUM OF SOLACE: Quantum of Solace - the 22nd James Bond movie - has been met by both massive box-office success and critical disappointment. We take a look at 007’s newest outing.

REVIEW: WHERE THE BOYS ARE: It’s been quite a while since I last truly enjoyed an evening at Cape Town’s On Broadway. Some of the shows staged there, during the past few months, have left a lot to be desired.
REVIEW: MAMMA MIA! THE MOVIE: With Meryl Streep, lots of shirtless tanned guys, plus songs by Abba, what’s not to like? Mambaonline takes in the latest movie musical to hit our screens.

REVIEW: WALL-E: Critics have hailed it as the best film of 2008 (so far), but is Pixar's new animated flick WALL-E really as brilliant as we’ve been led to believe?
REVIEW: HANCOCK: Watching Hancock, starring Will Smith, is like watching two completely different films, one bordering on good and one just below mediocre.
CHESS: THE MUSICAL: This 1986 musical, with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, now on in Cape Town, exudes panache and intelligence.
REVIEW: THE HAPPENING: The latest film by M. Night Shyamalan, starring Mark Wahlberg, is a profoundly stupid movie complimented by its profoundly stupid title, writes Shain Germaner.
