MOVIE WATCHERS (Audience) APPEAL TO MOVIE MAKERS, AS WE ENTER THE NEW YEAR (2010)

1. WE WANT QUALITY not QUANTITY

.

2. EDIT YOUR MOVIES


WARNING TO “MANY” WRITERS/PRODUCERS/DIRECTORS (the culprits know themselves): As we enter the new year (2010) we urge you to stop telling stories (writing/producing/directing) in a way that suggest we the audience our stupid. If you do, we shall call you out and broadcast your crap work. Also we suggest you start to write more visually and less dialogue (WE ARE TIRED OF THE DIALOGUES). We need some upgrade in your movies.

.

STOP PUTTING MOVIES IN DIFFERENT PARTS (CAN WE PLEASE STICK TO ONE DVD THAT TELLS THE WHOLE STORY) – ENOUGH OF THE PART 2, 3, 4 ETC

.

STOP RETITLING MOVIES TO CONFUSE THE BUYER – IF YOU STICK TO TELLING THE WHOLE STORY IN 60 TO 120 MINS ALL ON ONE DVD INSTEAD OF 3/4 VCD / DVD THEN THIS WONT HAPPEN.

.

STOP PLAYING BACKGROUND MUSIC THAT ITS EITHER TOO LOUD and DROWNS THE ACTORS TALKING OR WORSE YET THE MUSIC WHICH LYRICS TELLS THE WHOLE STORY OF THE MOVIE. :LOL: (yall know the one i mean)

.

WE ARE TIRED OF ROYAL THEME MOVIES (COMING TO AMERICA IS PLAYED OUT LIKE AN A TRACK ) - ENOUGH ALREADY (enough of the Prince, Princess, your Honour, blah blah blah - WRITE SOMETHING CREATIVE. THE CULPRITS KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

.
XXXXX

I WILL ADD MORE LATER, YOUR SUGGEST

Much as I would love to agree with you Darling that Part 1 and 2 and going away anytime soon. Why? Coz this is Africa and this is the only way the producers can recoup their money. If it costs about 3 to 4 million (naira) to shoot a film and I sell it at N250 think of how many single CDs I need to sell to get my money back! So the part 1 and 2 is a marketing ploy to help marketers of these films make their money back.I just think they should have more drama that will be enough to justify the films being split into two parts two.

Hi dearie.... I dont think that wish of getting a film in just one film will happen anytime soon coz if you produce a film at say 3 to 4 million (naira) and films are sold at N250 per one calculate how many you need to buy to recoup yr money and make profit? the part 2,3,4 thing is a marketing ploy for marketers/producers to make their money back. so you see why they cant stop it. I will only say they should add more drama and adventure in the film to justify the film stretching into two parts.

The retitling and stuff is just plain nasty! Just note the offending names and boycot their wrks.
You go Miss TILII! lol

Really great work, its obvious that you love home videos and i like watching them too, but the nigeria producers as well as directors still have a long way to go. do you remember movies like hostages, diamond ring, mortal inheritance, out of bounds, glamour girls? these movies are classic they keep you on your toes, if you havnt watch them(which i doubt)i think you should. the energy producers are putting in 4 movies a year they should invest it in just 1 and make it very good of course, you wouldnt see producers like zeb ejiro, the amatas, tade ogidan, tunde kelani and the likes, making 4 movies a year, in fact they make like 1 movie in two three years and that is becos they are spending their time planning a great execution for the movie. and pls enough of the cliche movies naija movies should try to be more original in their scripts, imagine a movie like silent scandal like 4 scenes were so daddy's little girls,the beginning of the movie was very good,original, nice story line but poor finishing, as for guilty pleasure good story nice movie but was terribly boring and too long,while reloaded was wack poor execution of movie, figurine was nice great effort by kunle afoloyan. i believe the cinema culture should be embraced here for nollywood to be en par with even south african standard talkless of hollywood standard. we need a revolution in the industry though it is comin on. nice job by you expect to here more from me.

We're getting there Motun! Rome wasnt built in one day.... we getting better by the day. You need to read the book 'An Empire of their own: How the Jews invented Hollywood' and 'Hollywood be thy Name: The Warner Brothers story' to know that America went through the very stages Nollywood is going through.

i don't tink d problem is with a movie been divided into parts, i tink the problem is how. Take for example the movie "TWILIGHT" as a sequel "NEW MOON" and a new one "ECLIPSE" and we all know they are continuations but wen naija movie do theirs in such a way that we don't know the first from the third, i tink that is where the problem lies...
