Commercial Break: CGI in Ghana movies is beyond belief

14 November 2011

It’s like this – CGI has gotten so realistic that it’s pointless now. We don’t even know that it IS CGI any more when it is spooned into our faces from the cinema screen. So let’s follow the example of the Ghana film industry and take it down a notch or two.

Here’s a couple of trailers for movies that might be thin on plot and low on acting quality… but oh, the SPECIAL EFFECTS! Where can we get to see the whole films? And where can we get some eyelid matchsticks so that we don’t miss a single thing?

    "CGI in Ghana movies is beyond belief" Doesn't read quite right... does it? It should be "CGI in Ghana movies ARE beyond belief". Nice writing style BOI!

    TeaBoy, it looks like you're trying to insert inaccuracies into correct grammar. Can I be of assistance?

    If anything it should have been: "The CGI in Ghanaian movies is beyond belief."

    Even in the oh so sexist comic book world the falling woman trope has been subverted at least once, decades ago, when Spider-Man broke Gwen Stacy’s neck trying to catch her from just such a fall. The continued use of this trope is pure regression.
