While I don’t always have the time to read KG’s Movie Reviews (they’re very in-depth), when I do find the time I generally enjoy the work he does. He recently brought on a guest blogger, Wendell from Dell On Movies, who wrote the piece “Why we need Ghostbusters to be a hit“.

This list covers films that I reviewed in 2014, were released in 2014, and made it onto South African cinema screens in the same year.

Very minor spoilers in the video.
If you’re a fan of Iron Man or The Avengers, let me just say you don’t need to read any further, just go watch this movie when it comes out in cinemas. If you want to know why, or perhaps need a bit more convincing, continue reading.

They say the majority of what we communicate is unspoken. If there’s anything that ever proved that it’s The Artist.
