My Property

The name of this movie as well as the actors in it will lead you to believe that this is some kind of comedy, it is not. It is an actual drama and a surprisingly good one as well. There are some comedic moments for sure but tha...


 
 
 
 
 
a man for mum

A Man For Mum

The name kind of gives it away, doesn’t it? This is intended as a feel good piece with a simple storyline, a contained cast and low budget. However something about it just looks amateur, this is probably the first movie to co...

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 ...

Cry of the Orphans

Nollywood movies can be described as sadness porn, they do all they can to make you weep and add a nice happy ending but only after you have sacrificed salty water upon the altar. With films like this I find it hard to disagree...

APAYE : A Mother’s Love

Apaye was a pleasant surprise. What did I expect from the movie? Absolutely nothing because I have stopped expecting anything from movies. But even at that, I never would have guessed that I would end up liking it as much as I ...

Mad Couple

Mad Couple had the appeal of a family movie with the usual list of flaws: overly prolonged scenes, some actors in minor roles that didn’t know how to act, a cyclical redundant storyline, unoriginal plot and themes as well...
