    I'll check it out.
    so do you think OmoT would have played Esther's character? I don't think so myself. looks like it was specially written for Nnaji.

    hahaha, it's good to be back.

    Not arguing that, just wondering if OmoT can play a "bad @$$" girl role like Nnaji did.
    one thing I'll say, nnaji is versatile, (although she plays a lot of "love, love" roles too) and I worry that OmoT is going to be typecast and won't be able to show her versatility.

    Then you need to see omoT in MarketSellers where she played a mischieviously evil girl with lots of humour and class.

    i guess i should have been specific...
    i've missed chatting with my peeps online, instead of being in read only mode, and also it's nice to have new movies to discuss with my peeps instead of only being a spectator in the threads and not being able to contribute

    ThickM, you need to see Omot in "ALL MY LIFE" and you will know that Omot can act equally bad. But comparing the two movies, Genny is more convincing in her bad girl role, than Omot, maybe because people know that the all-loving Omot can not be a wicked person....it is just acting.

    I'd give Genny 60% credit and Omot 40% in Blood Sisters. It was Genny that really made the movie. I actually like the scene with the blind Genny and the school teacher...I like the dialoque and it was really natural. Like the sound track too.

    Hopefully I will be able to get my hands on the movie so I can watch it.
    em, abeg clarify o...are you saying that genny is more convincing in her bad girl roles because she can be a wicked person as opposed to OmoT? (just curious)
    I agree with you that Genny made the movie. But OmoT made a formidable ghost. That last scene! man!!
    and yes, the blind scene involving the teacher was great.
    Genny killed me with laughter when she kept on referring to her as "nwa teacher". :excite
    great movie all around.

    chikere seems to have this knack of delievering time after time with his movies.
    which makes me wonder:
    does he have any formal training? did he go to school for this? he's had a couple of misses and near-misses, but majority of the time, he seems to deliever.
    so...my question:
    does he have any formal training?

    sorry for resurecting old posts, but all this talk on Love After Love made me get a bit nostalgic for the old days when we were able to review movies objectively and actually have discourse on the movies without slinging insults or making the thread all about one star or the other, and made me want to look up reviews on the movies i loved.

    Vince, since we have an influx of new "directors" on the market, perhaps you can start this again? reviewing directors? and their works?

    Did Tchidi Chikere go to school for directing?

    I have read any interviews with him, but i'd like to read an interview between him and Sola, that would be a powerful read.

    i just want to ask him where he gets his stories from (i haven't seen any of his new movies where he acted but i hear he is improving,) and i'd also like to ask him why he wants to act in his movies.

    I just think he is a great director and a good storyteller.

    Ah! Rising Sun.
    Wonderful movie.

    i'd say the only two writers/directors in Nollywood i actually admire are Tchidi Tchikere and Ebereonwu...

    well... anyway, i admire their writing. not so much their directing (even though they seem much better than the average Nollywood hack) (i guess Lancelot is a pretty good director too)

    wh-wh-WHAT????

    after typing my last reply, i decided to check and see what else Ebereonwu has been up to lately since i really enjoyed his Discord (well, the part one i was able to watch, anyway)

    needless to say i got a bit of a rude shock :(

    Yeah, Ebereonwu passed on. Beautiful mind we lost there. Nice guy too.

    I for one think Tchidi Chikere is a good one. Especially in village movies.

    damn shame... apart from being an excellent writer, he always expressed well-thought-out, provocative and pragmatic views in his interviews. i was looking forward to locking minds with him someday...

    man... learning of this almost a year later has really ruined my day.
