    This is Houston
    Starring JJ Bunny, Pascal Atuma and Ini Edo

    I think the movie is based on JJ bunny's life, about how she tries to make it in the movie biz and how she had obstacles and then decided to produce her own movies.


    The movie has a very good premise,about the Nollywood(USA) industry, at least this is the first time I've seen someone touch on that subject matter..but the execution was lacking. First of, the movie suffers from the same affliction affecting most Nollywood movies, a TRT(total running time) of over 3 hours(too damn long). A story is supposed to have a beginning, a middle and an end, this one just has a beginning and a long ass middle but no end, nothing is resolved at the end of the movie with any of the characters. Another thing was that in a movie about making movies, they never had an actual "behind the scenes" scene, where the we could see the characters making the movies they were talking about. The producers should have studied other movies(Hollywood, yes industry standard) about making movies. I'l grade this a 4/10
