I wish I was here to talk about the awesomeness that is Nollywood, but not today. It may not seem like it, but once upon a time, I used to actually be an avid Nollywood movie fan. I watched almost every single movie I came across. And at one point, I actually considered doing reviews of Nigerian movies on my blog. When I first started The Verastic Show on Blog Talk Radio, I did a Nigerian movie review at least once. I don’t remember what episode exactly that was. But somewhere along the line, I must have realized that I had watched the same Nollywood movie over and over and over, under different names.
I just became irritated by everything: the plot, the act, the editing, the lighting. EVERYTHING. And all I have been doing since then is complaining. So the other day, I went to the African store and while I waiting to be attended to, I spotted a few Nigerian movies.
Seriously, look at the titles of these movies and tell me why anyone would want to watch them. Or tell me how I’ll introduce these movies to non-Nigerians.
P.S. I apologize for the bad photography. I’ll do better next time.
