TOP 10 MOST ANNOYING THINGS YOU SEE IN NOLLYWOOD MOVIES, Let’s check out the top 10 most annoying things we see in ‘our celebrated’ nollywood movies.
(1) Fetishism – This is the biggest snag of the industy. 7 out of 10 of Nigerian movies (especially Yoruba) we see today are laced with fetish or witchcraft scenes. Infact,we are made to understand that visiting a native doctor would solve a problem quicker and better than seeking medical help or that most sad occurrences have spiritual backup(s). Portraying all mothers-in-law as witches is another broad topic…but it isn’t today.
(2) Subtitles – infact, this has over the years proven to be one of the best ways to relax or ease off tension. It’s a good job Queen Elizabeth doesn’t get to read them.

Our writers would “upload”, “what if I don’t good morning?” What the hell is that? The ‘highway construction’ we read all the time rip our hearts. Enough o.
(3) Shooting – Why will blood not gush out of the body of a man who was shot or stabbed repeatedly. If I hear? I’m not saying it happens in most films, at least i have seen few of such movies this year. Disappointing. What’s up with tasty time or any other red-liquid. We don’t mind.
(4) Car and Passerby – In most street scenes, there’s always this fine or ugly lady waiting for a cab at the road side. And a young, handsome man who never knows his way around pulls over, asks for direction, zooms off a bit, reverses and offers to give her a lift. She turns down the offer down at first and after much persuasion, she succumbs, then they exchange numbers, the rest is history. Meanwhile, ever since i started giving directions out, no guy has offered to give me a lift, infact they just zoom off. Maybe i should try harder. SEE MORE ON PAGE 2
