Another good one is "Agbeke" written by Bukky Wright. Excellent movie! I was trying to rate this movie in the review section but it seems as if you can't review a movie that is not on the list already

Vince, just gettin off track a lil bit, do you really think juju movies are not that captivating? How about juju with drama combined together, like Ti oluwa ni ile and others? I think they are classic!

Depends on how it is used in the plot.You see this is what juju does to a story if it is not used properly and is allowed to be too dominant,it kills it.Why?Because it renders the main xter/s passive or at worst dormant,and when the main xters of a story is rendered passive the story dies.
In scripting,to create a very intriguing and captivating plot you have to keep your main xter/s active,fighting to reach whatever goals they set for themselves by using their own wits,willpower and courage to overcome whatever obstacles that are lying between them and their goal.
All we viewers do is now to watch step by step,scene for scene,sequence fro sequence how they overcome all these obstacles.This is where the intrigue comes from.We want to see how they actively achieve their goals.
But when juju is used to achieve a goal in an instant without the xters ever having to lift a finger to do anything,what do you as a viewer have left to watch?Nada!What follows is nothing but sheer boredom.Think about that.
Why do you think hollywood movies are so great to watch?

It was not very clear whether it was juju that she used on him.As far as we know,she could easily have used the power of psychology,fro mthe way baba wande talked.
Even if there was juju,it was very much in the background and had very insignificant presence in the plot,nd that is how i like it. :)

That was just a hint of juju,which is almost like no juju to me.And the way baba wande said it did not indicate that it was juju.Could easily have been "psychological manipulation" was what he was referring to.Even if it was truly juju,atleast it was kept very much in the background and played no prominent part in the plot.So one could say it is a jujuless movie.

6. 150 Million

Just watched these 2 interesting films & were both jujuless. I guess jujuless is the way to go, I only did ff cos of the unnecessary advert in 150 million naira. Very interesting.

there is juju in 150 million
