‘Gotham’ Finally Unveils Its Batman

After five years spent watching Fox’s extra dark take on the origin of the dark knight and the most elite members of his infamous rogue gallery, we finally get to see Bruce Wayne unveiled as Batman.

Just like with Smallville, years back, we watched how Bruce went from young naive kid through various tests and trials into the caped crusader, protector of Gotham city.

Bruce Wayne (as played by David Mazouz) went from dorky, defenseless boy to mean-faced, unwilling disciple of Ras Al Ghul in season three of the show. Anyone familiar with Batman lore knows that the immortal Ras and his League of Assassins plays a pivotal role in modelling young Bruce into the guardian Gotham so desperately needs. This, coupled with the fact that at the end of the penultimate episode Bruce leaves the city for further training in an unspecified place, only to return 10 years later, fully formed as the Bats.

Though a different actor plays the character, we get to see Gotham’s take on the beloved dark knight, and I think it was decent.

Take a look and judge for yourself:

In the same vain that Bruce became Batman, his existing rogues, such as fan favorites – Ed, Nygma and Selina – became more accurate versions of their comic book counterparts as The Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman. Even the Joker wasn’t left out, as Jeremiah Valaske wholeheartedly took on the mantle.

One thing I liked about Gotham during its run was the consistency with its story telling; it might have been the most popular shows o air, but it knew what it was doing, and we’re it was going. And might be fondly remembered for ending right.

Let Me Tell You What Will Happen On ‘Game Of Thrones’ This Final Season

Let me tell you what will happen on GOT this season:

Disclaimer: I wrote this before season 8 premiered.

We all know the wall is down, thanks to an undead Viserion. What we don’t know is that because living Viserion had a telepathic link with Daenerys Baby girl Targaryan, this livid version of the dragon is still connected to her and (plot twist) also connected to The Night King (TNK).

What this means is that, through Viserion, Dany and TNK are one in the head.

We all know how TNK hasn’t yet said a word on the show? That’s about to change. Guess who he’ll first speak to? (Shocker) A naked Dany. He’ll be pestering her, trying to get her to talk, until he reveals himself to her while she’s having a bath at Winterfell.

Jon is out trying to safeguard the North.

Jorah is outside her door, still hoping she changes her mind else he truly becomes Batman.

And Daario is still in Meerin waiting for her to call him to come to Westeros.

So, TNK bargains for Dany to have sex with him in exchange for saving the rest of the living.

She thinks it, it’s a no-brainer. After all, she’s done it with a Dothraki, a seven son, even a bastard; why not add an iced d*ck man to that list.

Your guess is as good as mine if that singular act saved the entire world from extinction; after all, she’s been called the most beautiful woman in all of Westeros.

How To Download From FZMovies Website

If there’s one very popular (non-torrent) site for downloading movies in this present time it’s FZmovies.net. This mostly privately funded site has been the help and succor of a large percentage of the populace who can’t afford to visit the cinemas to watch their favorite movies. After waiting for months, their joys know no bound as they troop into the site to download, watch and celebrate the availability of same movie(s) at a cheaper cost of just data.

If there’s one thing that’s to almost everyone who’s paid the website a visit it’s how jam-packed the interface is with ads and spy-links. It’s difficult to navigate freely for oldies, and almost impossible for newcomers. That’s why this post is up, to help newcomers find their way around what’s arguably the most popular movie website.

Step-by-step:

1. Open your browser (preferably UC browser) and type http://www.fzmovies.net

The homepage will look something like this.

2. Scroll past the Bollywood movies’ section into that for Hollywood. There, you’ll see two major headlines, By latest Updated and By Release Date. As their titles suggest, movies in the by release date menu are movies released not long from the present date, they’re mostly movies still showing at the cinemas. I’m sure this is what everyone wants, but the catch is, movies newly added to this list are mostly in CAM format (camera recording of the cinema screen). Not a nice viewing experience. That’s why I always recommend using the latter option – recently added. The movies in this list vary in release date (stated in years), but you’re sure to have them in decent, watchable quality.

PS: Same rule(s) applies if you want to download from the Bollywood movies section.

3. When you find your desired movie, click on it. In this example, At Eternity’s Gate. When you click on it, you’ll see an interface like in the image below. Click on – Click here to download.

4. Click on one of the many servers below. A mini-box will pop-up. You click on download, and you’re good to go.

There you have it: How to download from FZmovies in four easy steps. I hope this post helps you. If you’ve got questions, drop them in my comment box.

RR’s Top 6 Nollywood Films Of The Year 2018

There hasn’t been a year in Nollywood as good as 2018. It was a fabulous year, especially in its last quarter (particularly the month of December). Multiple nollywood movies garnering critical acclaims at the same time is something not usually seen, so understand why I and some other people might be excited at how far the industry’s come. We can only hope this positive development piques the interests of indifferent viewers into going out of their way to support the industry by watching flicks it puts out for consumption; for without the consumers, the producers produce in vain.

In this year, we had movies spanning multiple genres; from the mouth-watering-cuisine-filled Royal Hibiscus Hotel, to the supernatural thriller Sylvia to gangster-ganja monster-hit King of Boys to family drama Lionheart, there was just about everything for everybody depending on your taste. Fret not, Ebony Life was very much active last Christmas season; they had their usual mindless comedy to thrill fans, this time in the form of Chief Daddy. I’m happy industry now has an official box office system, so we don’t get to believe any of the hogwash EL and filmone forced down our throats in the name of box office king. And, it’s my prayer the ills and sins of Nigeria doesn’t get to taint it before it even kicks off.

I, honestly, don’t get to see as much Nigerian movies at the cinema. This is because I’m careful about what my eyes sees (I don’t want my IQ dropping at an alarming rate). But with the overall performance of the out-gone year, in terms of movie quality, I’m willing to let me guard down a little, and so should you.

Without wasting any more time, let me reveal the six movies I believe redefined the Nigerian movie industry in the year 2018.

6 God Calling

There hasn’t been much Christian-themed production in recent time, and I don’t think there’s ever been one with a quality as great as this one. God calling is that movie you need to supercharge your faith in the right direction.

5 Up North

“Northern Nigerian is beautiful”. That’s a phrase you might have heard from someone who’s visited any of the states there. Thanks to this movie, many people get to visit there too (Bauchi State), and see the north has more to over than the ugliness of Boko Haram.

4 Knockout Blessing

Dare Olaitan thrilled the world when he released Ojukokoro a little over two years ago. With Knockout Blessing, he tells the world in unequivocal terms that he isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

3 Sylvia

Supernatural thrillers were a stable of Nollywood back in the days; it was good to see it make a return, and to the big screen. Zainab Balogun puts in one of the best performance of her career as the titular character.

2 King of Boys

Kemi Adetiba brought to life a highly entertaining movie here. With high, octane-filled energy acting, and a cinematography like nothing ever seen before in Nollywood, almost everyone who visited the cinema left feeling entertained.

1 Lionheart

Rightly called “The feel good movie of the year” – Wilfred Okichie; Lionheart is definitely the biggest Nollywood movie of 2018. Becoming the first Nigerian Netflix Original speaks greatly for it. It’s a movie with a simple plot, but its name has been carved into the sands of history. Director and star Genevieve Nnaji put a lot of work into this movie, I’m happy it’s paying off – critically and financially. Click here to read my review.

Ten Seven Grossing Movies of 2018

2018 has been a very interesting year for movies, and seems to be getting even more interesting just as its gradually coming to an end. It was in this year we had massive, shocking hits like Black Panther and more shocking hits like A Quiet Place and Crazy Rich Asians. With movies like Aquaman, Bumblebee and Mary Poppins Returns all set to battle for box office supremacy it’s as though the year’s not done with us yet. Old records have been broken and new ones formed this year, let’s see which ones actually smiled to the bank while making history.

RR’s Top Ten Movies Of 2018

2018 has been a very interesting year at the box-office; several old records broken and new ones made. In this year, we saw movies that sprung up important, long side-lined conversations with rich cultural importance, like the groundbreaking ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ where both movies had majority of their casts from their eponymous races, finally addressed. In this same year, we had several low budget movies, like ‘A Quiet Place’ and ‘Blindspotting’ and indie movies like ‘Upgrade’ give us something new in terms of how movies should be made. All these for the betterment of the movie industry.

Below is my list of movies that struck, irrespective of genre or professional critics’ opinions.

PS: 2018 has a lot of great movies, it was tough limiting them to ten that really got to me. I apologize in advance if your favorite(s) don’t make the list. Do air your grievance in the comment box.

10. Love, Simon

What’s not to love about this coming of age movie that talks about forbidden love? The writing, pacing and acting makes this a beautiful watch. You can’t help but get immersed in the protagonist quest to find Blue, who could be the love of his life.



9. Upgrade

I loved everything about STEM; the badass artificial intelligence chip with a mind of its own. I’m still sad it went rogue; but if there’s ever a sequel, you can count I’ll be there on opening night.

8. Searching

I can only imagine the technicality that was required to visually tell this story. I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I watched a movie that was told through a display screen, from start-to-finish. And you’re wondering why it made my list.

7. The Hate U Give

Amandla Sternberg is a star, the world had better watch out for her ‘cos she hasn’t come to play.

6. A Quiet Place

This year’s a good one for power couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Together, they use their off-screen chemistry and brawn to bring us something new and beautiful, for which we’re eternally grateful.

5. Crazy Rich Asians

Few years back, no one would’ve believed a movie with an entirely Asian cast would appeal to the whole world. But that’s what happened here with Crazy Rich Asian. Do you remember that wedding scene? We still grateful, Elvis Presley.

4. Bad Times at the El Royale

Chris Hemsworth continues to impress me with his acting. After seeing him in this movie as Billy Lee, I’m less worried about what his post-Thor career would look like.

Just before I unveil my top three, I’d list to list some honorable mentions. Please note that they’re in no particular order.

  • Acrimony

This movie sprung up conversations at every corner of this part of the world. I’m sure we’ll still be asked ‘who was right, Mel or Robert?’ in the new year. Asides the publicity it garnered, nothing about this movie is supposed to be heard as the years go by.

  • Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Tom Cruise’s stunts continue to rise in the ranks of death-defying.

  • Sorry To Bother You

Did you catch that horse c*ck sock?

  • Aquaman

I wish I lived in Atlantis. It’s so beautiful.

  • Ready Player One

Spielberg is still the greatest of all times.

  • Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse

Who would’ve thought an animated movie could be so interesting?



3. Black Panther

Wakanda forever!!!

2. Blindspotting

Let me tell you a secret. Before Blindspotting, I’d never heard of Daveed Diggs. But after watching this masterpiece, I’ll be following his career nonstop.

1. Avengers: Infinity War

Around this time last year, my most prominent mantra was “Thanos is coming”. Thanos did come, and made sure he turned half the population into dust before he left. It’s a good thing our remaining heroes still won’t go down without a fight. The Endgame is here.
