    What is in a name

    Okay, I was not feeling this movie, seems like a waste of cast, but my question is, What is the name of the guy who acted Uche Jumbo's boyfriend?

    Haba BB, :roll

    The funny thing is I don't even remember why I asked that question anymore, and since I won't be re-watching the movie anytime soon... :). I guess you are right, he couldn't have made much of an impression...

    Yes, you can rewatch it again...when you are extremely drunk because that's the only way to make sense of the opening "car chase" or would that be car CRAWWWWWWWWWWWWWL. The worst car scene in the history of any story ever printed on film or recorded on tape, dvd and if possible cassettesmokin: ever ever bar none!

    Lancelot Imasuen is a boring director in my book.

    I was supposed to come back and review it but I couldn't abide to watch it again in order to give a thorough write up on it. I don't review films anymore so its all good. Chei, what a train wreck of a filmsmokin:

    That's a shame,bb.
    Maybe it would be a lot better if you review flicks from nolly producers who actually care about the quality of the productions they unleash on the viewing public,i mean the nollywood top guns like;
    -Tunde Kelani
    -Tade Ogidan
    -Amaka Igwe
    -Kingsley Ogoro
    -Ego Boyo
    -Charles Novia
    -Emem Isong
    -Jetta Amata
    It is a lot more rewarding reviewing the works of these folks,rather than just expending energy on just any homvie from every tom kini and harry producer,the way you used to do.

    I totally understand what you are saying and don't disagree with you by no means. I never used to review just any old movie, mostly the ones I thought might have had great potential but it is not worth it if the people (not referring to anyone specifically or to the ones you've enumerated specifically) are fixed on what they think sells. It's like telling American advertisers not to use sex to sell their products any where they can squeeze in the concept. They know it sells and as long as the dough keeps piling up on the table, they don't want to hear it: not from the government or the audience.

    I stopped after Emem Isong (Generally Known NR Id:CoolChic) stated that she thought I was being malicious even when dare I say 85% of the forum members agreed with my points even if most including yourself didn't like my straight forward approach. I knew then that an objective acceptance of mistakes made in Nollywood productions and a desire to exact even a little change was an impossibility at this juncture. And the funny thing is I love most of the general concept of her stories and think it has great, great potential with a little more care taken in the execution.

    I am waiting for a renegade soul to take a stand but I think by then I would have long give up watching Nollywood home videos.

    I'd remove Charles Novia from that list personally, I thought he was one of the objective ones till I read his rejoinder to a Thisday sunday article on Nollywood that was very insightful. Will post the link when i find it, i was dissapointed!

    Not for me tho! I have long since given up Nigerian movies and I never move go back Naija (as much as e dey hungry me).

    The last Nigerian movie I saw I believe was Games women Play in 2004 I think and I have not for one day regretted the decision to quit Nigerian movies, for one thing, I have saved loads of money, cos I used to buy mine from wherever I could lay my hands on them, but I am about to break it cos I am going to take a chance on Jeta Amata's Amazing grace!!!!!!! Lets see how that goes

    Yes, it can happen. My dear, Nollywood films no be crack cocaine, please. I ain't hooked on it. I make time to watch it, I don't have to because I have so many other things I can do with my precious time. And ain't it a shame that the people who live there don't even watch these crapola movies but we abroad because of missing home spend our hard earned dollars on them? Ironic.

    It is indeed those abroad that show major interest in the movies ... I thought so cos u seemed current with your reviews..but when I think about it I havent even watched a Nolly flick in the last 60 days either.

    I believe cos its free online and no longer hard to find.
