    Who talk sey Chikere is better than TK?Dat person drink ogogoro or wetin?Chikere and TK are not even in the same league.Chikere is an idumota standard director,period.In Chikere's heydays he was not even the best director in the EMG sector,but just one of the better writers,and he is a far better writer than he is a director.His directorial skill never rose above the idumota standard or else he would've been the director to be called up to direct Nigerian major productions,but instead it is Izu Ojukwu who has been getting those calls(and rightly too).Which EMG director gets the AMSTEL calls everytime?IZU OJUKWU.
    Chikere is just another marketers' favourite,quantity merchant director who shows very brief flashes of brilliance once in a while and is yet to prove that he can move up to the next level.In my opinion,Andy Amenechi is a much better EMG director than Chikere,and so is Lancelot Imasuen.

    To answer your question, Vince... **I** said it.

    So if you disagree with my opinion, you can do me (and yourself) the courtesy of getting your cojones up and addressing me directly rather than being all passive-aggressive about it.

    In any case, I didn't necessarily say Tchidi was a better director--I said he was a more effective filmmaker because he has better scripts and when he works with DOP John Osemeka, his movies are more interestingly shot.

    The fact that he is not called upon to direct Amstel movies is not relevant to the discussion--definitely not to me, since I don't think the Amstel movies have been that good. Besides, you don't know the kind of behind-the-scenes politics that lead to Izu Ojukwu rather than Tchidi or anybody else.

    If you have a different opinion, why not express it with direct reference to the work rather than relying on someone else's (ie Amstel's) opinion?

    I read it in that thread where you stated TK makes primary three mistakes -'fundamental errors' (same difference). TC doesn't know when to clean the lense of a camera, it doesn't get less fundamental than that. Notwithstanding, we are all entitled to our opinions. In my book TC is not on my top 10 directors list. Others may different list.

    Cheers.

    There may be politics going on, there may be no politics going on, we don't know. But when you talk about who is better among the two Izu Ojukwu is mind blowing when you compare his work with TC's. There are better directors better than TC. I'm yet to be conviced by TC's work just like I'm yet to be convinced by Ini Edo's acting.

    Again: when you are quoting me, be sure to use my actual words.

    "Fundamental errors" is not the same thing as "primary three mistakes." I never used the latter term and I never would, because it implies a sense of malice and ridicule towards TK that I never expressed.

    I've not seen this "pink dot" with my own eyes, but it sounds to me like the lens is damaged, not dirty.

    As you may (but probably don't) know, the lens is the most expensive part of the camera, and economic issues might currently be prohibiting Chikere from replacing it in a timely fashion.

    Continuing to shoot movies with a damaged lens is a pretty poor choice, and probably shows a degree of disrespect to the audience that pays good money to watch your movies. But on that level, it's something of an ethical problem.

    On the other hand, breaking the 180 degree rule (as I have seen TK do) is a fundamental filmmaking error that no seasoned director would do... unless for a very good reason.

    Let me help you change your count dearie. IT IS NOW FOUR!!!

    the stupid dot has turned to RED and I saw it in NATIVE SON!!!

    I wondered that that crap was and tot it must be from something else, now I see yoru thread, I just lost a little respect for him, I tot he's supposed to be good? And he did not see the dot while in post production? haba!!

    And then, NATIVE SON had a scene in the King's palace where TOnto Dike said the same like like three times, and I was like, couldnt the editor take two out?!!!

    naija movies!!! Just the reason I stay away from them! So they dont pollute my mind!

    I was told by another director that these pink dots are not Tchidi's fault. That he does not own the camera he just has to work with whatever camera he is given. If he makes a fuss about the pink dot he could be blacklisted.

    I beg to differ... Why is it always his films that have this stupid dot... It must be a camera that he is associated with. Why is he always using this same camera? At the ned of the day... he must know that this pink dot is being associated with his name so he should try and eradicaate this annoying problem.

    :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Abeg, make una no kill me for here o...to be blacklisted because someone says a camera is damaged and will not allow them to do their job properly is utterly r.i.d.i.c.u.l.o.u.s!!!!! And the pink dot is Tchidi's fault because he kept using the same camera not for one movie, not two, not three. Must he use that camera? Is he in some sort of indentured servitude to the person who owns the camera? And with all the money he has made and all the autonomy he seems to display by doing almost every job on his film set, he doesn't own a camera?

    This is what the person said. That I should think about what I said because of the fators she listed... I agree with you... he is the common denominator where this dot is concerned so it is my assertion that HE is to blame in some way shape or form!!!

    I noticed the pink dot on the screen in the movie, Native Son. Not good at all.
