Top 10 Best Nollywood Movies You Watched 2012 by speedyboi(m): 2:25pm On Dec 26, 2012
As I must have said before, I started watching nigerian movies this year when I noticed a revolution in the industry. I must say I wasn't disappointed. So here's my list of 10 Nollywood's best I watched this year; not necessarily released this year:

10. Sitanda

Year of production: 2007
Production Platform: Amstel Malta Box Office
Directed by: Izu Ojukwu
shot on:

9. Mr and Mrs

Year of production: 2012

8. Inale

Year of production: 2010
Production Platform: BIK Entertainment
Directed by: Jeta Amata
Shot on: Celluloid (35mm)

7. Anchor baby

6. Maami

Year of production: 2012

5.The mirror boy

Shot on: Arri Alexa

2. Figurine: Araromire


Year of production: 2009
Production Platform: Golden Effects Pictures

Shot on: Celluloid (35mm)

1. Phoneswap

Year of production: 2012
Production Platform: Golden Effects Pictures
Directed by: Kunle Afolayan
Shot on: RedOne

the criteria for my ranking include;
*Quality of Production (picture & sound quality, colour correction & Grading, sound mixing, proper music Score, proper visual & Sound effects amongst others)
*Story (Originality, deep story, proper plot, good directing, and jaw-dropping script etc)
*'African' - I want to know I'm watching an african movie not a Hollywood wannabe. I don't want to see 'sme sme' acting like American movies; I want to see all the dramas and shouting that's peculiar to nigerians, I want to see good portrayal of our culture. I want to see juju stuffs, but it should be done with a good plot and not those types ( you know them...lol)-the difference between 'koto Aye' and 'legend of the seeker' na 'PALCKANGING' lol. I want to see more juju-like films like figurine not koto ayee.



Other movies that I will like to watch:
*Tango with me (directed by Mohammed Ali-Balogun)
*Lions of 76 (directed by Izu Ojukwu)
*Dr Bello (directed by Tony Abulu)
*Awakening
*Hoodrush
etc


note: if you've not watched any of the movies I listed, don't bother to come and comment the popular anthem 'Nollywood is trash'. Just move along. Thanks smiley

Another thing! If you want to Stårt watching Nollywood, remember not to buy alaba hustler productions, go to å cinema wink

Really?ok oh.I've watched figurine,inale nd mr&mrs.they were really a step up from the usual "nigerian film" kind. Buh for me,honestly, they were just there. watched them just once and I don't see me watching them again which is very unlike me. Also can't wait to see tango with me tho and phone swap.

Of the ten,i've seen "Maami" and "Figurine" and they stand out from the regular.

The last Nigerian movie I watched was Living in Bondage back when I was in pre-school.
After that movie, watching Nigerian movies lost their appeal when I discovered the beauty of Hollywood Productions.
IMO, Nollywood sucks. Virtually no graphic/virtual effects in their cheap productions.
What the fans want is less talk and more action, not the other way round...just saying.
