    REVIEW: The actors in this movie fit their roles, there are no grammatical errors but, the scenes in the movie are not explanatory. The movie is quite cliché and the movie has other parts which are predictable, what I don’t get is the fact that we know who the man is having an affair with but, we’ve never seen them together in the same role except the time they met

     

    CONCLUSION: the movie is a step up in the Nigerian movie industry, they can do better but this was good work. I liked the fact that the characters were portrayed well. I feel that you will like the movie if you watch it, its nice.

                                                                    SYNOPSIS

         Two friends return home from abroad to join the Bureau of Detectives under an ambitious government scheme to develop future leaders of the much-maligned Police Force. Dipo & Pade (Gbenga Akinnagbe and Wale Ojo) are assigned to the Lagos State Police Command with the daunting mission to hunt and apprehend a notorious robber called Caesar (Lucky Ejim) who has been terrorising the city of Lagos for quite some time.

          Our two detectives are forced to deal with tough talking bosses, envious colleagues, suspicious newspaper editors and a corrupt police force. And this is before even coming in contact with the ruthless kingpin Caesar.

                                                         ELEMENTS OF THE MOVIE

    PICTURES: The picture quality was very impressive, and it was also clear.

    COSTUME: The uniforms were fantastic, presenting smartly dressed men in clean official attire. The shots with the uniformed men are some of the film’s most visually appealing scenes.

    LIGHTING: The lighting was fantastic, but there were some  blurred scenes.

                                                                         REVIEW

           “Render to Caesar” wants to be many things at once, it wants to be a crime thriller, a police procedural, a love story, a twisty film and a game changer. The fact that it wasn’t focused on one person is very nice, it had different stories in it. The film had its moments where it works really well and everything is peachy, dreamy even, but just as soon as you’re cut up in the moment, a bizarre turn of event occurs, or someone says something they shouldn’t have and then the viewer is brought back down to earth.

             The movie is very good for the police force. Playing at times like a subtle PR campaign, it portrays the uniformed men as brave, dedicated men and women forced to work in the midst of crippling conditions. Presenting smartly dressed men in clean official attire and casting does a fine job of having Bimbo Manuel and Dede Mabiaku play outstanding police officers. Some impressionable folk may even find themselves wanting to sign up with the force after sitting through this film.

             The screenplay offers smart, credible dialogue and moves at a breathless pace. It is however the romantic scenes between Akinnagbe and Omoni Oboli. Their chemistry isn’t quite translated believably on screen. Omoni Oboli does her best to play the thankless girlfriend role but at the end when she’s held hostage by Caesar, she loses touch with her character and one can see she’s bored by the role. Dede Mabiaku shines in a striking supporting turn but the biggest hit here is Lucky Ejim who plays Caesar.

    CONCLUSION:

             “Render to Caesar” is an experiment, which even with its many flaws, in the end is a big step forward. The film portrayed a brilliant Nigerian Police force. Lucky Ejim (Caesar) plays the best villain seen in Nollywood since Ramsey Nouah shocked us all in “The Figurine”. My favourite quote in this movie will be “NERVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF LUST” said by Caesar (Lucky Ejim). I’ll definitely advice you to watch it.

    SYNOPSIS

    Igwe 2Pac is a mouthwatering and sagacious action packed royal movie. Upon the demise of his father the king of the fictional ‘Akuku land’ (based on the eastern part of Nigeria). The prince and his cohorts become a thorn in the flesh of the people of the kingdom. The center could not hold, and the kingdom became uninhabitable. With an irresponsible king in the making and with the death of the king the kingdom is yet to witness the worse ever reign Can he over power the entire kingdom?

     

     

    REVIEW

    The camera used in the movie was very poor and the actors did a poor job acting the movie aside from the prince (Charles Okocha) the movie was sort of a cliché as it was easy to predict what would happen before the end of each scene in the movie and the location set-up was also very poor as the location manager failed to find tangible locations for the shoot of the movie but the element of comedy was used profusely in the movie.

    The costume designer also did a great job as to portraying the right costumes to members of the cast.

    The movie is a combination of both comedy and drama as it portrays the stupidity of a prince( Charles Okocha) when he forcefully takes on the throne after the death of his father, the prince hears of his father’s death and comes back from the united states where he wasted his life doing drugs. He is a rebellious child as he was happy when he heard the news of his fathers’s death knowing that he was going to be the crowed king of the fictional ‘Akuku land’.

    The problem starts when he violates the tradition of the people by attempting to bury his father a week after his death, the whole elders of the village come against him and refuse to swear him in as the king. He then tells his friends Evans(Browny Igboegwu) and Osita(Junior Pope) they then  hire thugs and  fire all the servants in the kingdom, they then forcefully take over the throne and beats up anyone who comes in their way including the elders.

    He makes his fathers company go bankrupt by going there to collect huge sums of money so he can use it to purchase drugs like cocaine and weed and even when the manager refused to give him the money he requested he then fires him and hires the company clerk to take charge with the condition that he gives him any sum he wants.

    The elders plot against him and March down to the palace to threaten him but things take turn during their visit.

    Will the people adopt to his new rules and regulations? Or will they fight against the kingdom and go through his thugs who clear anyone who comes against the king. Watch the movie to find out what happens in this comedy filled movie as each scene of the movie never fails to make you laugh.

    I would advise you to watch this movie as its very funny and has lots of morals.

    CONCLUSION

    The movie is not that bad, the director of the movie really as he made us have a kind of relationship with the prince( Charles Okocha) and the camera men and crew men did a great job using the right shots for the right scenes.

    The basic lesson in this movie is that we shouldn’t let power to get over our heads and we should always lead by example.

    SYNOPSIS.

              In keeping my man, a frustrated wife, Maya resorts to drastic measures to force her husband, Rasheed into noticing her, whilst another will do anything to avoid being intimate with her husband. Both take advice from their friend who appears to have the perfect marriage.

    REVIEW.

              This movie portrays both  comedy, tragedy and romance. It depicts these days relationship between a man and his wife. In the movie, there are three marriages sited. There is Tokunboh and Zion ( Ramsey Nouah and Rukky Sanda). The movie shows them to be the happiest couple, they have no problem at all and they share their joy with their friends. The next couple is Rasheed and Maya ( Alex Ekubo and Ini Edo). Maya at all cost wants Rasheed to notice her, so she tries to seduce him by playing dress up but Rasheed is shaken and disgusted by this. He asks her where the decent woman he married is. Maya claims that they have lost the spice in their marriage. Then comes the third couple, Lanre and Tamar ( Kenneth Okoli and Monalisa Chinda). Lanre loves his wife and tries to show her this in anyway he can. He tries to make love to her, but she always cooks up excuses which leaves Lanre frustrated. This pushes him away and Tamar starts to believe that he is cheating on her. Then comes a twist of events when this movie shows the resolution in the supposedly bad marriages as Tamar and Lanre resolve their issue as well as Rasheed and Maya. The perfect marriage of Tokunboh and Zion comes to an end as Zion finds out that Tokunboh is cheating on her with her friends. This depicts a very high standard of irony.

              The movie, however have some flaws. There is a shaky side of certainty in the movie where Tamar and Lanre claim that they have two children but the movie showed only a child. During the therapy session, it was obvious that the therapist wasn’t writing anything down when she was asking the couple questions. Also, Monalisa Chinda over acted the role of Tamar when she was always giving excuses to avoid being intimate with her husband. The make-up artist failed to show the difference between when Zion was still with Tokunboh and when she left him. Her make-up was still very shouty and pronounced. The difference was supposed to portray that she was more of herself than when she was with Tokunboh as she was always dressed and looked the way her husband wanted her to. The movie ridiculed Yoruba language when it allowed Alex Ekubo speak it. When he spoke Yoruba in the movie, it sounded like a mixture of pidgin and English which makes the audience confused.

     

    ELEMENTS OF THE MOVIE.

    1.      Pictures: The picture quality was good and there was no unnecessary colour scheme, but there is always room for improvement.

    2.      Costume:  The costumes used very stylish and they suited each scene especially the scenes where Maya tries to seduce her husband. The make-up and hairdo was moderate and suited all the characters apart from Zion who had her make-up and hairdo overdone.

    3.      Sound effects : The background music suited each scene. The club scene was matched with the perfect music and the tragic part was well placed with its perfect music. The comedy scenes were perfectly placed with no music, depicting silence to give the audience the opportunity to grasp the joke and then burst into laughter.

              Different shots were used to identify a character and show the gravity of the role being played. Low angle shot was used to show the gravity of how Tamar was worried that her husband wasn’t back yet at the early hours of the day. The production of the movie was however good. It is a movie I would love to watch again despite its flaws.  It definitely would catch anyone’s attention starting with its title.

    Synopsis:  This Nigerian Nollywood Ghallywood Movie is about a certain woman has been barren for sometime and is been mocked by her fellow women,when desperation set in she went to the river to ask the gods for a child which was granted to her,but the child became a mystery that no one can understand.

    Elements of production: Medium shot

    Review: The film is a nice movie. it had the dramatic effect it was meant to show. All this didn’t cover some of the inevitable situations done in the movie.

    In the movie, there was a scene where the girl who was surprised to be a mermaid wasn’t what I expected. The costume she used for that scene was not realistic enough to make her look like one.

    There was only one camera shot, which didn’t give the film the dynamism it was meant to take. Also, they could have used a material almost resembling a fish’s tail instead of the cloth they sew together.

     

    Conclusion: The movie had a good ring to it but the title made me laugh at first which actually attracted me to see the contents but, it just made me think that Nigeria has a long way to go in edition and special effects. My favorite words were”Now it is time to take her back Nnwanfor receive your sight”. Thank you

    REVIEW

     

    The movie, ‘The Wrong Selfie’ is a breathtaking movie with outstanding actor and actresses. The storyline is great and the screenplay is just explicit. I would definitely recommend people to watch the movie especially all single ladies in search of Mr right and men out there. For men out there, they should never underestimate the power of a woman and for single ladies, be careful of men who claim not to be married, they are dangerous and finally get themselves into an incomprehensible dilemma. The wrong selfie is indeed a wrong selfie. The story just literally exposes us to the kind of men we have in our society and the extent at which women can go to fight for their husband and make them happy by all means. In the movie, Cassie (Mimi Orijiekwe) showed more love and respect to her husband even though she knew that he was cheating on her. This is very unusual to a typical married woman. In a typical home, the woman would either confront her husband or do the same as her husband and cheat and that is how that marriage would be broken. This movie just gives an insight of what you do in such situations. Now to the technicalities of the movie.

     

    Camera shots used in this movie were quite good. The director did a great job here. The costume manager was great. Throughout the movie, no costume was repeated even the jewelries. At the point where Alex (Ik Ogbonna) was supposedly duped by his wife, the movie shows that his house, money and everything he owned were collected. If his things were collected, how come they were still living in a comfortable house and food wasn’t a thing to struggle for. The director should have made him look wretchedly poor and make his living from hand to mouth. He facial expression was good for that part but his clothes looked new, he should repeated his clothes during the period he was poor. Towards the end of the movie,, Alex is seen to have almost won a lottery game and the part where he almost beat the lottery sales boy who denied him of winning the lottery shows that even 5 naira meant the world to him.

     

    The characters fit the role and the movie is great. I would recommend people to watch this movie

     

       

     

     

     

    Conclusion

     

    The movie is a wonderful movie. All the characters fit the role given to them. My favourite quote was by Alex (Ik Ogbonna) when Cleo asked for 25 milion naira. His response was funny. “ you didn’t ask for 5 million, 7 million even 8 million”

Pastor Reuben (Seun Akindele) a very zealous and faithful man who serves the lord and the church with the whole of his heart, but even he (Pastor Reuben) has his flaws. He fails to give attention to his wife Kemi (Chioma Akpotha), all he cared about was the church, even after his wife Kemi, had complained to him about loving the church more than her.

       Because of the no show of attention to his wife, this led her astray, making her fall in love with her boss in the office Ebube (Chet Anekwe), who showed her love and gave her attention, but sooner had realized her mistake but was too late because the church and her husband had found out about the affair and then chased her out of the house. No sooner than later Pastor Reuben realized his mistake and reconciled with Kemi.

     REVIEW

    It’s a good movie, a worthwhile movie, the camera quality was good the sound also good, the script and scenarios were quite impressive not too cliché.

       The acting part; the main actors where impressive they acted well, some other actors were also good, while some were not so impressive.

      THE LIGHTIN EFFECT: the lighting was good, the lighting mood they created for the scenes were also good.

    Well except for the bad actors the movie was exceptional, the storyline was quite common, and predictive but not too cliché, It was worthwhile, a must see movie.

    THE SOUND EFFECT: the sound in the movie was not impressive.

    CONCLUSION

    The movie was centered on a pastor who loved the church more than his wife. All the movie is trying to tell us is that loving the lord doesn’t mean neglecting ones family, it means loving both.

    FAVORITE QUOTE: By Kemi (Chioma Akpotha) – “Did you marry me or the church”.

     PICTURE: the picture quality is manageable but there is still room for improvement.


    MAKE-UP: it was not really good but because it is a 2014 movie. No offence taken. But the make-up that was given to Jide’s mom (Eucharia Anunobi) to make her look critically ill was commendable and believable to a fault. Also, dying Majid Michael’s hair was not necessary.it showed any significance.


    SOUND EFFECT: the sound effects were lovely and we were not told the story line from the beginning of the movie. But towards the end of the movie the sound effect was like that of some group of unprofessional musicians who were rehearsing how to sing.


    COSTUME: Their costumes were really nice apart from the fact that I actually found most of Jide’s outfit funny for a director and also his producer Mabel.


    LIGHTENING: the lightening were not good at all because most of the scenes were indoor but they made the room too dark which allowed rooms for too much shadows .


    CAST: all the cast performance were impressive except Dabota Lawson who was given a waka-pass role that didn’t fit her at all, patience uzokwor would have been better for that role. Majid acted so well. For me, he was the life of the movie.


    CONCLUSION: one last word is a movie that should be highly commended, it is a lesson to those married adults who do not deem it fit to go and see their parent often. It is centred on a life imitated art. It was really impressive to a fault. Nice job.


    FAVOURITE QUOTE: “it is my job to fool people, and not people fool me”.
