    REVIEW

    Lucas and June (AlexxEkubo& Uche Iwuanyanwu) planned to celebrate their marriage with a second honeymoon but when June walked into her home and found another woman in her bed the celebration went downhill.

    This “other” woman, Vicky (Adunni Ade) had luring Lucas to bed as her only agenda.  Lucas amazingly claimed to be clueless that Vicky was in his home which made him look all the more guilty. June assumed he was having an affair, got angry and stormed out of the house. She proceeded to go to on the honeymoon but alone and only to take shelter away from her husband and his “mistress’.

     

    vlcsnap-2015-10-15-09h30m43s234.png

    Lucas found June at the hotel and wanted to explain that he wasn’t having an affair but she wasn’t interested. In the middle of his bewilderment he ran into his ex-girlfriend, Amelia (DabbyChimere). In order to find and talk to June he agreed to sharing a room with Amelia in the hotel when he learned that the hotel had no more vacancies and she was ready to help.

    vlcsnap-2015-10-15-09h37m29s198.png

    As Lucas waited for an opportunity to see June, she discovered that he was staying with Amelia, which led her to believe he was having yet another affair.

    vlcsnap-2015-10-15-11h04m20s89.png

    In Three words – Miserable, Heartbreaking, pathetic. This is a movie about disloyalty, inconstancy that was completely uninteresting. First off, the characters and relationships were underdeveloped. The audience didn’t get to see the happy times between Lucas and June so it was quite hard to root for these two. The movie starts in the middle and the misunderstanding started before we could understand both couples. 

    Vicky as a temptress and enchantress was horrible and it’s understanding why she didn’t make it at luring Lucas into bed. The characters in the story were put in place to move the drama along and not because they were interesting people. 

    The writing was novice, low-rent, and mindless. The story was utterly predictable, failing to meet expectations, and cheap. Even the sound of fake slaps and punches was a turn-off. It doesn’t feel like it was based on a true life story.

    The story was mostly made up of framed “coincidences” that made the movie feel fake. For example, Amelia just happened to be in the right place at the right time to overhear June admit that she cheated on Lucas. There were many other convenient misfortune and situations. 

    Performances? Amateur.Alexx Ekubo is a pretty decent actor. All I can ask is what was he doing in this movie? The rest of cast is not worth talking about.

    As for technical issues, most of Dabby Chimere’s dialogue was low and difficult to hear – not that she was saying anything of importance. Her number one line was “calm down, calm down.” Sigh… This movie should have been titled “Second Rate.” It wasn’t impressive and quite frankly, it was a complete mess.

    REVIEWER: Sokoya Teniola (14be016618)

    Synopsis: Chioma travels to her sister’s side to battle not only a flawed justice system with the aid of a young and disillusioned attorney, but the very notion of “truth” as the cultural values of two worlds collide after her sister, Anya, is charged with the murder of three men, one of them her powerful husband.

    REVIEW: Nigerian movies have come a long way from what it used to be and Ijé is proof that something good can come out of a well put together script.

      Ijé- the Journey features two of Nigeria’s heavy weights in the movie industry, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Genevieve Nnaji as the lead actors and it co-stars a number of foreign actors who manage to spice up the movie.

      Like most Nollywood movies, Ije is based on a theme, but it is better integrated into the storyline and not shoved down ones throat like some others. In this movie, two sisters must mend their relationship as well as come to terms with their past. There was no shortage of the occasional pun, which showed the often seen cluelessness of life as a foreigner in Western lands. I found the scene with the immigrations officer at the beginning to be classic, something that Nigerians who have been through the international airports should relate to.

        The first half of the movie straightforward but rather slow; it seemed to me as if it would be a standard criminal case where Anya would eventually be acquitted. But as events progressed, it became obvious that she had something to hide, as she was not revealing to Jalen everything that had happened in her marriage with her late husband. The pace of the movie quickened dramatically after this and it ended in an unexpected and emotional dramatic scene in court which, quite frankly, left me very moved.

    The sound in the background was a little too much as I would have preferred if not every scene had some sort of music playing in the background and thus give the pictures a life of their own. Still on Music, Asa crooning her hit “Awe” as the opening soundtrack was alright initially but then it started dragging on and was used a second time in the movie making it tiring.

       I decided to go in on the actors in the movie as the last part of my review as I was expecting more from Omotola and Genevieve but instead their acting wasn’t so impressive but worth raising compared to Ulrich Que’s (Jalen Turner, the lawyer) acting in the movie. Not all the actors were unconvincing in their roles and one of those that managed to deliver was the inmate “Libby” played by Diana Yekini.

       While Ijé – The Journey isn’t your everyday Nollywood film and had a good storyline, I certainly won’t be watching this one a second time as the movie wasn’t captivating nor was it thrilling. But for acting sake and for the love of something new and different from the Nigerian scene, I employ you to watch the movie. The DVD is out and can be purchased at your local stores.

    This is a story of three friends who searched for job in the bank, but they didn’t have the appropriate educational qualification. They forged certificate which allowed them to get the job in the bank.

    After getting the job, they pulled loads of stunt in the bank like crime, cheating other customers also making the bank lose customers. After some period of working in the bank, the three friends where caught red handed committing a crime and they lost their job

     

     

     

                                                                       REVIEW

    Thumbs up to Jonas izuegbe for producing a very marvellous movie ‘’OGA W SABI AM’’. The movie being a comedy, Jonas izuegbe picked the right actors for the movie i.e john okafor, victor osaugwu and francis odega. Apart from Jonas izuegbe been the producer he also wrote the script for the movie, the script was really organised in terms of the funny languages and words used in the movie (pidgin). The camera angles were not that bad though it lacked somethings like ‘’HIGH ANGLE SHOT’’. The movie also lacked subtitle, and it was necessary to have subtitle because in certain scenes ‘’Igbo’’ was used.

          Another thing the movie lacked was high quality, the production was a poor one. Jonas izuegbe choice of sound track was perfect because the lyrics of the soundtrack goes with the storyline of the movie. One thing that increased my rating about the movie was the fact that apart from the movie been a comedy it also had moral lessons which was essential. I must say that Nollywood comedy movies as improved they just have to work on the production process thereby making it in high quality.

       ‘’OGA WE SABI’’ is a movie that everyone should watch when you are feeling down because am very sure it would awaken your spirit and put a smile on your face.

                                STANDOUT MOMENT

    My best scene in the movie was when the three friends were caught red handed cheating customers, the reaction and the expression on their faces was just priceless

    Ratings:  7/10

    Reviewer: Joel- Ezeugo Esther.

       SYNOPSIS:

     Married illegal immigrant couple, Joyce (Omoni Oboli) and Paul Unaga( Sam Sarpong) have been ordered to be deported by the U.S immigration, due to the fact that their visas have expired and their time in USA is up. They agree to leave only after their baby is born inside the U.S; Joyce who isn’t so keen on the idea agrees with her husband to lay under the radar hiding from the immigration till the baby is born. Paul believes that this anchor baby will be a means to gain automatic citizenship for his child and his family into the United States and also for his baby to be afforded the same opportunities the American kids have.

       Later the immigration officers’ raid Paul’s workplace but Paul manages to escape but mistakenly dropped his phone while on the run and one morning while Joyce is out on her daily walk they pounce on Paul and grab him. Joyce is left alone pregnant and homeless as she had no choice but to move out of the apartment if she doesn’t want to be caught.   She later meets a Good Samaritan Susan (Teri Oliver) in a doctor’s office who offers her a place to live in her basement till the baby is born. Now with the help of Susan, Joyce sets out on a journey for her unborn child by any means possible. It sounds like a happy tale, is it?

     

    ELEMENTS OF PRODUCTION:

    Ricardo Diaz( director of photography).  The use of medium shot is more prominent and prevailing in this movie, though the use of long shot is used in this movie, it is not as consistent as the use of medium shot. The camera angle and placement of camera in this movie is usually placed at the eye level, which is mid angle. The camera movement that is more noticeable and prevailing is the horizontal movement usually the pan. (Flash pan). The camera speed is usually normal in the shooting of this movie. The transition used is cut, though at the end of the movie, fade is used.

    REVIEW:

    The movie got me confused at first because I thought there was no plot and was leading nowhere but then towards the end the plot got revealed and got really interesting. The story involves a couple (Paul & Joyce) who are illegal immigrants in the United States hoping for a better life. They got caught by the US immigration service and were ordered to be deported. Joyce realizes she’s pregnant and the couple decided to stay at least until the baby is born to secure a US citizenship for the child. Paul got caught and was immediately deported leaving his pregnant wife behind. Joyce avoiding the immigration officers struggles on her own and looks for a place to stay, she meets Susan who offers to help and take her in; Joyce accepts the offer not realizing Susan’s hidden motives while facing numerous challenges.  The performances in the movie were good and solid. There wasn’t anyone that had the wow factor for me except for Omoni. Omoni Oboli was the standout for me. It was an absolute stellar performance. She was passionate and convincing and conveyed a gamut of emotions effectively. I didn’t think Sam’s performance was as good. It was also glaringly obvious that he was not Nigerian as the film said he was so that was a huge miscasting in my opinion. Not to say that the guy was bad but next to Omoni he was coming across as pretty mediocre. Its one of those movies with a last minute twist, great movie.

    CONCLUSION:

    This is a movie that I thoroughly enjoyed and I would definitely recommend. It was well shot and evenly spaced. The drama, tension and suspense was good but could have been picked up a notch, nevertheless I loved the storyline. It was one that raised very real and important issues about illegal immigration and showed us the gritty reality of life as an illegal immigrant and the misfortune that can fall upon you when you have no rights. Anchor baby won the Best film Harlem Intl film festival, Award of Merit L.A Cinema festival of Hollywood. It made the Official selection Africa Intl film festival and official selection Fans of film festival and all with good reason. GRAB YA COPY (even if it might be hard to find) NOW.

    REVIEW

    Last Flight to Abuja has a modern setting. As the major locations used are cities in Nigeria. Places used in the cities include the airport, offices and a hotel.

    The movie starts by showing us the passengers panicking for their lives and taking the brace position. All except one which gets us wondering why?

    The main cast of the movie include stars like Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who takes on the role of Suzie a busy working woman who has just been cheated on by her fiancé, Hakeem Kae who plays Adesola, Jim Iyke as David and Anthony Monjaro as an Aircraft captain.

    The movie is based on a real incident which occurred in 2006 and was dedicated to the Dana crash. The acting was spot on as the actors selected are talented, they made it look as realistic as possible. As actors displayed what they would do the closing chapter of their lives. Some would cry and others would pray. This made us wonder what we would do if we were in that position.

    Another thing I really liked about the movie was the good use of flashbacks and camera angles. We understood the bits and pieces of the film as the flashbacks were relived.  The lighting and sound tracks used were appropriate for the scenes.

    However good acting and good use of elements of film is not all it takes to make a good movie. The graphics were poor as the plane was unrealistic when shown in the air. For example the segment in which the pilots were trying to control the plane from crashing looked too fake. The explosion and plane crash also did not look real.

    Some scenes were not realistic as individuals will not be concerned about going on a date when one’s life is about to end. Another is the fact that the oxygen masks will drop because of the smoke before the passengers take the brace position.

    In my opinion the movie was a good movie but would have been better with good graphics and more accurate scenes. I would say the movie was a step forward for the Nigerian film industry as it’s not predictive as other movies, and the image quality is quite good.

    SYNOPSIS

    This movie titled ‘MARUN’ is a very interesting Yoruba movie unlike the other movies that could be predicted, this movie is so unpredictable. Try to picture five physically challenged persons as robbers in the night, would you have thought that they could actually be robbers who only beg in the day to study their target area and their victim[s]? Shocking right?

    REVIEW

    This movie is a very great one, I see the Nigerian Movie Industry moving to greater heights. unlike other Nigerian movies, this movie is so not predictable.

    Thumps up  Nollywood!!!

    A team of five disguised as physically challenged persons in the day so as to spy on the areas of their target and rob their victims at night. This movie opens one’s eye to so many things that we have been over looking for example not everyone you run to for help could be merciful enough to help you. In this movie we see Adebayo Salami who acted the role of Oloye was very self-centred and stingy. He only cared about himself. Shortly after discussing a deal that worths millions of naira, he told a lady who came to beg him for money for her mother’s surgery that he has no money and only God can help her. When she stood up to leave he offered to give her transport fare, he gave her 200 naira and told her to be happy and that for the record the money is crispy, who does that?

    In the movie there was also a mad woman who seemed irrelevant at first but at the end of the movie, she was revealed to be a police officer who was under cover.Marun_-_Yoruba_Latest_2015_[Premium]_Nollywood_Movie._Full[HD]_2305360[1]

    How would you feel if I were to tell you that Oloye who sought cover from every security force because he got a letter from the group of 5 [that they were coming to rob him], was the one who supported them financially and morally.

    Guess who always receive their healing miraculously in the night? It is our dear beggars.

    CRITICISM

    Although the movie is very nice and wonderful, it has its flaws too. Who in his right state of mind will give a beggar money and ask for chance especially a deaf and dumb one [beggar]?

    There were irrelevant shots taken and the shooting in the movie was so not fresh and real.  Marun_-_Yoruba_Latest_2015_[Premium]_Nollywood_Movie._Full[HD]_313840[1]

    They used too many effects, the audio was too loud, and the focus was bad and forming of accent was so wrong.

    ELEMENTS

    The lightening was okay, the sound was just there and different cameras were used e.g  crane camera. Wide shots, medium, close up and extreme close-up shots were taken. Angles like; Extreme high angle shot, mid-angle and low angle were used in the movie.
