The only two video game movies I can recall that weren’t total disasters were Silent Hill and Tomb Raider, with a tip of the hat to Mortal Kombat. But certainly not Ratchet & Clank, which is getting all kinds of review agony and appears to be ignored by audiences too. Locally it plunged 3 spots and will be gone next week.

The good Captain still sticks to the top spot, but Jungle Book had to make a surprise step down to third. The Huntsman is slowly slipping, as is Barbershop 3. Zootropolis also felt the brunt of a 3 spot drop, keeping it far away from taking Frozen‘s crown.

Newcomers aplenty this past week with Mother’s Day, Bad Neighbours 2, Miracles from Heaven and Mignon Mossie, a local coming-of-age rom com.

Shed a tear for Batman vs. Superman, which bows out after a rather surprising run – I’d have expected it to tank hard, but it didn’t. Local drama Free State left after just a week, as did Queen of the Desert. Kung Fu Panda 3 also bows out after a relatively good run.

A total movie glutton, nothing is too bad or too obscure to watch, unless it's something like The Human Centipede. If you enjoyed that, there is something wrong with you. But bless you anyway - even video nasties need love...
