The name for the Nigerian Movie Industry. Silly? I know. But a lot of people dont know about it yet. Its supposed to be the second largest in the world, in terms of movies made. And the third in the world in terms of worth. It really is something. Just made a hub on it. The industry's only competition is really just Hollywood and Bollywood. And people still dont know it exists!
Sure you do, Davi. And I plan on reading every one of yours. Okay, except the Mommy ones - i'll soften the hell out of my heart. Take a guy like me, who thinks he's as as tough as nails, and you'll find that half the time Mommy stuff kills me. No kidding.
R2 has a book! Geez, and I call myself his fan! Must have been busy following Guy Ritchie up and down the place. Geez, Rodriguez is my man for life. Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Sin City, Dusk Till Dawn...
I knew this, which is why a few months ago I invested a decent amount of money into an Indian film company! India is a decent place to invest at the moment, a fast developing country.
And Nigeria DOES!!!! Make more films than either India or the USA! However, they have absolutely no copyight laws whatsoever, so they are very low budget.
The reason that they make the most probably has something to do with the fact that foreign film producers dont want to market dvd's there. They only have to sell one copy, and somebody could legally set up a factory making 10,000 a day!
I guess that us British had the 'B' taken by the Indian's.... who probably didn't like the sound of 'Iollywood'..... we call British made films 'Britflicks'... maybe 'Brollywood' would be more apt ;-)
The sequal to any 'Britflick' that actually makes any money normally gets funding from Hollywood, and gets Americanised... Guy Ritchie made 'Lock Stock' and 'Snatch' as an example.... before Hollywood came in and we got 'Revolver' (which didn't go down very well here).
What were the "sweetest words" you ever heard, and who said them?What are the sweetest words that anyone ever said to you? Include the situation you were in, if it helps to explain why the words were so good...
