FX Legion: Time Travel Is Impressive

Dan Steven has been killing it as David Haller since Legion first premiered, and it’s a joyous thing to see he hasn’t lost his touch one bit. It’s even more pleasant when you realize the show is fully embracing time-travel in all its Glory. The season three premiere opens with it quickly establishing its own set of rules for one of the most popular topics in SciFi, and one of my personal favorite.

Its theory builds upon previously existing concepts of time travel we already know, like taking care to not array to close or far from event(s) intended to alter, but it’s the tease of a time demon that gets me really excited for all the many ways things could really go to shit for this season.

The season three premiere goes out of its way to give a little extra of everything this show’s come to be unanimously applauded for – mind altering cinematography, excellent performance from its cast, stunning visuals, even the impromptu musicals aren’t left out, making it more difficult to prepare to say goodbye.

Division 3 didn’t come to play – David’s got to die. It’d be fun if the bulk of the season will be about David manoeuvring a vindictive Sydney with equal amount of hate as she once loved him, as Farouk rightly pointed out, but I know that’s a bogus lead. The Shadow King is too good to keep playing ball for long, he’s definitely got a few sinister tricks up his sleeves especially since there’s a time-traveler on board. With Professor X slated to appear somewhere down the line, I’d like to see how all these pieces play out together.

Give me more Lenny, crazy David-Farouk moments, time-travel, and I’ll be your loyal bitch this season, Legion.

Muna: Adesua-Etomi Wellington Is Ready To Kick Ass

The trailer for ‘Muna‘ starring Adesua-Etomi Wellington dropped a few days ago. Muna is sure to be a kick-ass movie, and it’s safe to say it’s one of Nollywood’s most anticipated movie of 2019.First teased by the star actress in Summer 2017, the beautiful wife of actor/musician/ political aspirant Banky-W is set to wow global audience with this collaboration between Hollywood and Nollywood. Judging by the trailer, there’s not going to be any dull moment in this movie. Or will there?

We’vecome a long way to continue to fall hook, line and sinker for this new Nollywood game. It’s relatively new, but still has been done so much time it’d be weird to not acknowledge what’s really happening. Nollywood has gotten very good at cutting trailers. A round of applause for the powerhouse industry.

Banana Island Ghost, Up North, The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai are some of the high-profile movies in recent years to follow this route. Awesome trailers which gets you nothing short of hopeful and willing to dole out those Naira notes you hold dear. Unfortunately, none of these movies ever lived up to the hype. And I fear Muna might follow suit.

Yet, it still wouldn’t be far-fetched to fan the flames of optimism. Who knows, Muna might just surprise us, and break the curse?

‘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.
