Which of her recent movies have you seen lately that made you jumped to that conclusion?
Thank you for asking.
The following;
TRAUMATIZED
MEN DO CRY
These two flicks clearly showed that she is slipping.Apart from a lot of plot weaknesses that i have come to associate with her writing,i also noticed that she is loosing probably strongest forte,dialogues.The lines in these two flicks were just second rate,and they both showed signs of having been written hurriedly.
Her homvies are beginning to loose the real Emem Isong feel and quality.
Just my own opinion,anyway.

It could be that she is missing the banned artists. Usually it is the good ones that will call your attention to the fact that a dialogue is weak or motivation for a character is weak.

You think so?Well,i am not that familiar with how they work in nollywood,concerning scripts,but i think that shouldn't make much difference to a top scriptwriter.Methinks that she is rushing all her scripts and spending little or no time on developing them properly.
Judging in which working conditions and circumstances she operates,it is not surprising that she is having to push out badly developed/written scripts.

I'll be looking out for one of those movies. Not that her scripts were excellent in her past movies anyway. Her movies were just entertaining because of the actors' delivery and good directing.

I think her success comes from her finding a niche in the melodramatic. She separated herself by giving Nigeria its own version of Telemundo Novelas - dramatic soap operas. [/B] In the time that people where killing the Juju and Christian genre, she came with the romantic/dramatic storylines that leaned towards the "Americanizing" movies and its characters.

She writing too much on the run - cookie cutter writing. I would love to see what she could come up with given adequate time. I think she would probably rock

I think really good direction is missing in Nollywood i.e directing of ACTORs- reining some of them in and make sure ALL have done their actor's homework. Directing right now in Nollywood consists of directors just making sure they get their shots and nothing falls apart. Their last concern is actor's process. My humble opinion, course.

Even a top writer needs several revisions even while in production. But what I meant was that if she had the banned acts, she would be selling of the hook and there would be less pressure on her to deliver to make up for loss of sales. Moreover, i noticed that she has been co-writing lately. It could be that she has had to brush up or revise scripts for other people. You can revise a script to a point and get writing credits. Anyway, she is more woman than I am -- one film in a year is a killer, two is murder.

Are you saying she was the one who started the "love this love that" era?

Her movies were nicely delivered by the actors she featured in her movies( the banned actors). Her stories always get some kinda K-leg. I love watching Naija movies and it doesn't take me time to figure out when something is missing. For instance, PRIVATE SINS is as wack as a movie can get-storyline wise-yet was entertaining because of the way the actors delivered their roles. Most of her movies would get you like "WHAT THA HELL!" But they are entertaining though!

I don't know if she started it as much as she ran with it. But I totally know what you mean about her films having you flip your neck like the exorcist but see the thing with that is that I've come to expect that from her now and that's not a good thing after a while. She's gotta come with some other trick eventually but she's good at what she does and like Pompom has already said...she's a better woman.... and this is what my English teacher would call a run-on sentence, a definitely no-no

Madame Pompom,where have you been? It's been a long time. It appears, you have disabled your PM function? I have been trying to get in contact with you to no avail. I hope everything is alright.
