AY’s 10 DAYS IN SUN CITY **SIGHS**

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Movie Critiques

In this movie, Bianca (Adesuwa Etomi) is nothing but a damsel in distress (and also a bimbo); Otunba  Williams (R.M.D), nothing but the usual over-privileged business mogul, as Akpos (AY) himself fails to be saved by his own supposedly witty goof. In this movie, Sun City is nothing but a tourist city, and Monica (Mercy Johnson) and Falz are nothing […]

ISOKEN: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CAMOUFLAGE!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Movie Critiques

Although, this movie feels awesome, it is not nearly as awesome. Still, it does a good job showcasing concepts that capture the audience’s comic-hungry mind. Judging from the structure of this movie, though, it is a bit glaring that at some point in pre-production, the filmmaker gets fed up of adjusting and re-editing the script/story that she gives up and […]

OMUGWO’S CRAFT HOLDS LITTLE WEIGHT

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Movie Critiques

This movie has got a strong connecting spirit for the average female Nigerian (or maybe male as well). A movie with good intentions as can be observed in its title, Omugwo, which, to me, means intensive new-born-nursing by mother or mother-in-law (or maybe some close relative or friend who cares enough and who would be allowed) for like three months.

That is, like, long before any of the better movies of Tyler Perry came into existence in this genre. Without much ado, we shall see to it […]

THE GUEST: ANOTHER NOLLYWOOD 90s REPRODUCTION

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Movie Critiques

The Guest is a mixture of some fine things about filmmaking: a throwback of Nollywood 90s unique, though mediocre, story focus; the conceptual imitation of “shocking” conflict and “heart-pounding” tension; the theory of good overcoming evil; and the assortment of old-timer /new timer faces for major characterization. This movie has got story elements that could very well captivate an audience. […]

OLOIBIRI MOVIE: MORE VACUOUS THAN MEETS THE EYE

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Movie Critiques

There is a noticeable effort with a part of Nollywood to create better scripts for ultimately better movies. These days, you now get to perceive, in movies, genuine intellectual efforts: the implementation of cultural clash and shock, and a sort of cause-and-effect technique, as can be seen in Oloibiri movie. Only, this is a Western filmmaker, and should do better, […]
