heart of a sister

Heart of a Sister

It is becoming more and more of a struggle to find an Asaba movie that is light on formula, high on story and high on performance (like "Native Son" or "Heart of a fighter"). Now, most movies are just high on formula, low on st...

Somewhere Down the Line

Somewhere Down The Line

"Somewhere down the line" is the story of a couple unable to birth their own child who eventually resort to surrogacy. Thankfully, this goes well and they end up with a beautiful baby girl who they revolve their world around. T...

Gone too far

Gone Too Far

I went into this without any sort of expectation of excellence. I wasn’t even expecting it to be good but I was so pleasantly surprised. The story, the acting, the directing and the production values came together to create a...

King Akabueze

This is the true definition of an epic movie. Thrilling and suspension, this movie will keep you on the edge of your seat and hooked until the end. It plays its secrets to the chest and doesn’t allow you to find them out ...

Sorrowful Child

I have talked long and hard about suffering porn. Nollywood just churns out these films although there has been a new crop of interesting twists on the first classics. In that way the familiar storylines that we accord to these...
