Africa Needs To Stop Ruining Good Hollywood Movies

Africa Needs To Stop Ruining Good Hollywood Movies image

There is no doubt Africa’s movie scene has seen some great improvements over the last decade... At least that is what recent popular movies will suggest. I’m here to tell you not to believe the hype... or do, but not too much. In the midst of all the said improvements we are making in our movie sector, there are some movie makers who have really taken it upon themselves to bring down the glory of the continent by releasing unspeakable evil in form of movies. Whoever said the Godfather needed a reboot?

All of the African movies that end up doing really well on charts are movies of original concepts and although resources are limited here, we make do with what we have and more often than not, we produce good movies. But when a movie producer from Uganda thinks he has the right to continue the Terminator series by taking Skynet on a cross continent jump, you can only assume the end result will be far from pleasing.

I can’t say how bad, I’ll let you be the judge of that.

 

Godfather

How do you take an award winning movie adaptation of an award winning book then turn it into this? I’m so glad this isn’t a Nollywood movie.

Spider Girl

I don’t know who said it was a good idea for us to have our own Spider Girl, but whoever did this, i’m not forgiving him.

Jugunnu

This is the Yoruba kingdom’s take on the Kung-fu movie Drunken Master... Not a Hollywood movie but a classic nonetheless. Just watch it for yourself.

Terminator

Forget skynet and realistic cyborgs, this is the real deal.

Typical Ugandan Action Movie

At this point, you really cannot blame us for trying with our little resources. Come to think of it, an exhaust pipe and a frying pan makes a good machine gun.

B14

This is the last in our dear collection... You’ll see why.
