I have seen many great Hollywood crime thrillers, from De Niro’s Heat (1995), Affleck’s The Town (2010), to Hardy’s Lawless (2012), and many other clever entertaining movies of this genre. A Nollywood crime thriller from the recent past is Kayode Kasum’s Dwindle, a comedy crime thriller that was satisfactory but cunningly hid its flaws under a comical façade.

There will always be disappointing movies, it’s inevitable and as cinephiles, this is something we must experience. Filmmaking as an art is a way of telling a story through visual forms and Nollywood is reaching a commendable stage rather too slowly. There are movies that are praised for their art and creativity and there are some that are met with retort or disapproval–– under which The Ghost and the Tout Too falls. The first part released in 2018, The Ghost and the Tout, is one of those movies that should never make it to the big screen, an abomination to…

The latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is a fusion of Chinese martial arts with the Hollywood superhero universe. Just like T’Challa became an iconic hero amongst his kind, being the first ever black male lead in the MCU, Shang-Chi joins the league of Marvel superheroes as the first ever Asian lead. In the same vein, the directorial role is helmed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Just Mercy), the Asian American behind the biographical gripping drama that starred Michael B. Jordan.
