TRAFFIK is one movie we won’t forget in a long time because
it leaves us cinematically satisfied. What a movie!
The film is about a couple on a romantic weekend in the
mountains accosted by a biker gang. Brea played by Paula Patton and John,
played by Omar Epps defend themselves against the gang who will stop at nothing
to protect their secrets.
TRAFFIK is super intense and literally shows us what a
thriller should be. It entertains us just as much as it enlightens us about sex
trafficking in the world. It is my kind of movie because it leaves me
intellectually curious and I was truly fulfilled by the time it ended.
I was particularly impressed with the camera work by Dante
Spinotti, and stellar performance from the duo of Paula Patton and Omar Epps
who were the lead characters. They were
absolutely phenomenal. I’m a huge fan of Paula so I went to see the film with
very high expectations, and boy was it worth it! She was a delight to watch as it
was obvious she had mastered her role and the requirements which
RULE NO 1 is the romantic comedy to watch! Why? Because it
raises the bar and so graciously defines the true meaning of a romantic comedy.
The film follows the story of two best friends Tega and
Stephanie played by Chinonso Young, and Keira Hewatch who share completely
different personalities; one is the life of the party and the other,
conservative. Their friendship is tested when a play boy gets involved with
both of them without their knowledge.
RULE NO 1 isn’t a perfect film, but a very good one; It
tells a not so uncommon story in a refreshing way! This movie was so relaxing
and lovely to watch. I enjoyed almost all the scenes and the characters were
quite believable; I was absolutely blown away by Keira Hewatch’s performance.
She nailed her role!
Lest I forget, when I say the characters were believable,
this was up until we got to the concluding scenes where the ladies found out
they had been seeing the same guy. I honestly wasn’t expecting them to make a
joke of such a ‘serious matter’. Okay, maybe I’m old-fashioned and it really
isn’t such a big deal to lose your virginity to a guy who is sleeping with your
best friend. What do

What do you say when you watch a film, which gracefully
serves you a superb production, stellar cast and a top-notch story? Well, you
don’t say anything. You simply doff your hat!
Produced and directed by Moses Inwang, the movie which
parades A-listers such as Ramsey Nouah, Ireti Doyle, Chigul, Monalisa Chinda,
and a host of others is a psychological comic thriller which sheds light on
mental health issues in a funny, yet educative manner.
Did I enjoy this movie? No! It was more than enjoyment, I
learnt a lot from ‘Crazy People’. The truth here is, I can’t even find faults
because this was a fantastic production which paraded highly impressive acting,
and the icing on the cake being a thought-provoking message.
At the end of the film, I asked myself if this really is a
Nollywood production because it simply lacked the common errors associated with
Even though I thought ‘Crazy People’ could have been funnier
than we saw, I was particularly impressed with
Are you a fan of rib-tickling street comedy? If yes, this
one right here is for you!
First off, even though I couldn’t stand the
continuity errors in this movie and felt some scenes were absolutely unnecessary, I am
happy to inform you that the movie made me laugh. Yes, I laughed, and isn’t
that the whole essence of comedy?
Hold up! Shall I give you a synopsis of this movie? Written
and produced by Toyin Abraham, directed by Charles Uwagbai and Biodun Stephen,
The Ghost and The Tout follows the story of ‘Isila’, played by Toyin Abraham
who grew up in a ghetto and met with a ghost after an unfortunate incident. Soon
her life is thrown into a series of drama which only her can see and understand.
Like I noted earlier, this movie gets my thumbs up for
actually fulfilling the role of a comedy the way it should, but my thumbs are
down for so many technical errors which made my head ache. Why on earth were
we served so many unnecessary and boring scenes in the first few minutes of
this movie? My biggest issues with ‘The Ghost and The Tout’ are the continuity,
sound, and overacting which Toyin Abraham should guard against in her
It’s so hard to forgive the overacting from most of the characters. The directors were okay with this? Ah! The Dele
Odule and Chiwetalu Agu screaming scenes were beyond me! I just couldn’t deal.

Originally called “Race Course”, the Tafawa Balewa Square
(TBS) is a 14.5 hectare ceremonial ground on Lagos Island constructed in 1972
in memory of Alhaji Tafawa Balewa, the first Prime Minister of Nigeria.
Built on a defunct rack for horse racing, TBS is bounded by
Force road, Cable street, Catholic Mission street, the 26-storey Independence
building, and Awolowo road.
The Tafawa Balewa square can easily accommodate 50,000
people and boasts of gigantic sculptures of four white horses hovering above
the gate and seven red eagles which are symbols from the national emblem
signifying strength and dignity.
The square also possesses other monuments such as the
Remembrance Arcade constructed to honour veterans and victims of
