Fun Discussion on African Movies

To while away our time (as we still wait on great movies this 2010) we are going to have some fun discussions. I own this blog and I am bored out of my wits, and so i can imagine yall are bored beyond description - but its not my fault sha. Shebi the good producers have sat on their work and are all waiting on who is going to release theirs first, as we all sit and wait patiently and suffer from boredom.
I wish there were great movies out for me to review but unfortunately there isnt thus far. This year has been slow. Is not like the movie is not complete, I know of at least 10 movies complete which i know will be great releases, some were finished as far back as 2009 several of them starring Genny (and you know how i love my Genny) but the producers for one reason or the other are not releasing them - for own personal reasons.
The topics are as follows - You are welcome to contribute - and please "This is All in Fun" - nothing personal. I will come back to add more later. Enjoy

I love your blog.

I thought you will be interested in watching this Talk With Funmi episode that featured some Nollywood actors (Funmi Iyanda's show is aired on MNET Africa Magic):

I would love to know your thoughts.

I use tufiakwa a lot with 2 hands over my head and snapping fingers. For some reason I can't fastforward movies if I am watching for the 1st time I just start doing other stuff until whoever stops talking. Worst movie title: American Burger. What kind of title is that? Favorite scenes: I love and rewatch a lot of Genny/Muna scene the chemistry btween them is beyond amazing. I was watching Confidence one of their 1st movies together and the scene when they were both checking each other out CHEI....that was steamy!

Worst movie title has to go to Obama Babes.....what insult! SMH and LMAO
