Cynthia MVP Film Review – Wives on Strike

If you haven’t already I highly recommend you go watch this movie. It’s hilarious and includes a range of top actors (ufuoma mcdermott, uche jombo, omoni oboli, chioma chukwuka-Akpotha) who were surprisingly hilarious. The movie centres around a group of married friends who live and work in the lower class part of Nigeria with minimal education/knowledge. 

When one of the husbands (Baba Amina) decides to marry off his 13-year-old daughter to help the  family’s financial issues, the ladies device a plan to stop this from happening not just to Amina but to other ‘girl- children’ in the country by using sex as a weapon.  Their plan ends up affecting other homes in the country and causing public outrage thereby making the women local celebrities. 

Although there are a lot of funny moments in the movie it doesn’t neglect the key message which is enlightening viewers on underage marriage and issues surrounding it. 

 

THUMBS UP 👍🏽 

– The message : ‘child not bride’ campaign. 

– It encourages women to take a stand and have their voices heard regarding political issues. 

– The acting, dialogue and chemistry between the actors. 

– The movie engages the viewers from start to finish. 

– The movie was well written and directed. 

THUMBS DOWN 👎🏾 

  – Baba Amina’s sudden change of heart and attitude was unrealistic. 

– The movie insinuates that men can be controlled and world issues can be changed by withholding sex.

Cynthia MVP Film Review – Celebrity Marriage

If you asked me what this movie was about I couldn’t tell you.  All I can say is It is shambles! The storyline was all over the place, the scenes were jumping back and forth, the acting was atrocious. I’m so disappointed in the directors, writers, actors in fact everyone involved in this movie.  

The lady giving the voice over (which I thought we left in 2012 for Nollywood), made the movie more painful to watch. 

After all the hype surrounding the release of this movie I was heavily disappointed with it. Watch at your own risk!

THUMBS UP 👍🏽 

– Tonto Dikeh’s wig game was on point. She had a new wig for nearly every scene. 

– Odunlade gave some funny scenes (meme gold). 

THUMBS DOWN 👎🏾 

  – The storyline was pointless 

  Movie was poorly written, directed and edited. 

– Movie was unorganised. 

– The way domestic violence is depicted was more of a badly portrayed comedy.

Cynthia MVP Film Review – In Our Trap

Published

Ok so before I get started I would like to put out a disclaimer : ALL comments are MY PERSONAL OPINIONS. Yours may vary and that is perfectly fine. Being a ‘semi nollywood addict’ I thought hey why not start writing my views/opinions/criticisms (my snapchat followers would be happy lol) and I’ll try my best not to give the whole movie away #NoSpoilers. Anyways let’s get into it

MOVIE TITLE : IN OUR TRAP

This is one of the BEST movies I’ve seen out of Nigeria. The writers and directors, deserve a round of applause for depicting the message in a unique Way and Kudos to the lead actors (Deyemi Okanlawon & Ijeoma Grace Agu) for doing a spectacular job in portraying the realness and emotions of domestic violence. The acting was so captivating it had me going through all types of emotions from start to finish. It had me hating the husband for being so vile (he still deserves a bigger slap than the one bimbo ademoye gave him), crying for the wife for enduring that level of abuse and still trying to be a ‘proverbs 31 wife’, praying for her to finally receive sense and one of the saddest moments for me was when the wife was crying to the husband begging him to love her while the baby kept hugging her in an attempt to console her, beautiful moment!

THUMBS UP 👍🏽 – the acting : sold the movie perfectly. Very realistic. – The message : touching sensitive topics like domestic violence can be daunting but this was portrayed correctly. – The Lesson: not to sound insensitive to the subject but I love the fact it had a sad ending, not everyone is able to get out of abusive relationship alive and happy. This is real life.

THUMBS DOWN 👎🏾 – the end felt rushed. I would’ve loved to see how she was killed and what the husband did afterwards. Did he run? Was he arrested? Wetin happen?! Where’s the baby? Her cousins just standing around her body was not it for me.

MVP RATES :: 9/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
