OHHHHHH YEAHHHHHHHH!!
TM,there are movies that are of the 90s in the list,but a lot more are in the new millenium.Like i already said,2003 is old classic nollywood for most.Besides,these are the ones i can remember.My memory cannot go far back into the 90s.So manage those.You are not going to be able to get most of them,anyway.
Here is another of early 2000s,THE KINGMAKER,produced by Olu Jacobs.
did you guys already put dates and i missed it?
I think, to move this conversation forward, and back in the original direction, we ought to find out what people consider the old movies.

TS, which dates were you looking at?
Vince i know you consider anything 2003 and older as the early years.

i dont know when eucharia's glamour girls came out, but the one with her as a young school girl, and ngozi ezeonu, liz benson, and her girls as young very young women i'd consider early years.
hell, Regina Askia is early years too.
i don't think anything with nnaji and co are early years.

let me warn you guys now, if another tribal fight breaks out, i'm outta this thread.

Most of them are already productions of the new millenium.Only a few in the list are 90s production.The most current of the movies has 2003 as procuction year.I think that is old enough to qualify as nollywood classic.
Six years ago is now considered "old school"?

Errrr... I don't know about that...

I agree with TM, btw... I kinda use Genevieve Nnaji as the cutoff between "old" and "new" Nollywood. Which is one of the reasons I referenced Most Wanted--it was Genny's first onscreen appearance and marked a turning point as stars like Regina Askia and Liz Benson started to fade out.

TM,do you think you can get 90s nolly movies now?It is nigh impossible to get them,anyway.So what is the point of recommending them...if one can even remember their titles,that is.

With nollywood homvies,3 year old productions are considered old,6 year olds are considered ancient,even.
I'm not working with those parameters, though. Ultimately, that kind of definition has more to do with the audience's short attention span than with any sort of artistic epochs.

Do not raise your hopes too high.Old nollywood movies are usually considered to be as "young" as early 2000s.

I added them in mine...i have lots of them at home ...cannot remember the names sha...but they are the old ones...I am not into the year they were produced but most probably around 2003, 2004 and maybe 2005 or even earlier than that. I think the movies started going down hill from 2007 to now

I strongly agree with you, Dickson Iruegbu is the only director that has still managed to keep me going from part 1 to 3 still hoping for more....have you watched any of his movies samira?
