Now im to post my comment - looking at Hollywood,they have varios segment ranging from their ghetto african-american movies with sophisticated guns, good mafian's movies,Science and technological movies,Resources movies (Water,sand,the planet,vegetational),loves and romance - High standard, good tragic-comic,comic and tragic movies, lots more, good sound effect, no unless scene unlike the Nigeria movie where you will see a car moving for over 1 mins without saying a word and the car or the person driving is not related to anything in the movie,

The sincere truth is that, Nollywood SHOULD NEVER be related/nor tried to be compared to Hollywood, its a BIG SIN,

Do you want the America govt, to ban your Nollywood, and actors like Jim iyke should go broke?

@poster, abeg, no try this mistake again o0o

hollywood is miles ahead of nollystick. what do u want to compare picture quality, sound effect, story lines or what. most nollywood movies are very very predictable, its always love story and they always live happily ever after. no science film, no martial arts movie. u should see naija films when the actors are fighting, the sound is crap. they keep beating drums lyk thats the sound of the punch. nollystick in the next 5 years wont reach where hollywood reached 8 years ago, not to talk of now.

Well what i can say is that we can not compare nollywood to hollywood, because hollywood is before ahead nollywood in everything(talking about the machine better to say plot they have) but that is the only thing they have,

because all their films are always the same they have no sense

but in nollywood when they act wow i can watch without saying that i am bored, because they are so real,realistic, simple, in their films you can see good and bad things,mens heart,what people can do only for money and power and so on,

what i love most is the ending of their films, it gives us important thing. A morality that lead us in life .

I personally think that nollywood is more than Hollywood in the way they act.

to be completely honest ill say hollywood but i think nollywood is going places but there are a few things they need to correct like the ways they cheat the stars in Loyalties!! in hollywood before they make a part two they have to consult you or settle you but here they shoot one film then cut it into two films without paying the stars thats wrong!! hollywood is just an image, must of the things they do involves computer graphics if we can incorporate that into our nigerian movies then we can compare them but for now ill go with hollywood

ok for once only I'm gonna be serious, owo2390, how do you think Gen would do if she had Halle's resources backing her, she does all she does in front of some amateurs cheap camera on a budjet of $500, and as for beauty, Halle's got the best beauticians in the world at her beck and call, still don't think she looks any better than Gen.

Thats my last serious comment on Nairaland, life's tough enough!

Excuse me! Hold it there guys. What! how dare you compare? what is it to be compared please? is it the originality, the video, acting, music, directing or the technology? what is to be compared? Nollywood is at best to be called jujuwood as if all our life depends on Juju. Nothing else. You hardly watch up to 3 Nigerian films without any one having a juju connection. The only deviation is when Ramsey noah or Emeka Ike is falling in love with any of the gals or when kanayo is looking for someone's wife to sleep with. That's all. That is Nollywood for U.

of course me i voted for nollywood. because i will always love the naija film industry.

anyways i know hollywood is better now, because the economy is better. but once naija steps it up hollywood will have nothing on nollywood.

re:nollywood vs hollywood

though nollywood is coming up in its own little way, it would be foolhardy comparing the two.

Many Nigerians actually prefer nollywood movies because they can identify with the storylines. It's funny how Nigerians find it easy to believe that Nollywood movies are based on real life. Some peoples' belief in the eficacy of juju can be traced to Nollywood films featuring juju that they watched when they were younger!
