Auteur Watch - Teco Benson

Well, you gotta hand it to this guy: prolific as f... I mean, he keeps busy.  One complaint, as usual: he's directed the whole Explosion trilogy, that I understand, but check out the titles.  The first installment's called Explosion: Now or Never.  The second one's called Explosion 2: Now or Never.  The THIRD one's called Explosion 3: Now or Never.  If they do make a fourth one, I think it should be called Explosion 4: Now or... Wait Just a Little While Longer.  Alas, Teco's slowing down a bit since his 2004-2006 period of high output.  Apparently Nigeria's got the old studio system, where a director could make five films a year!  Contract players!  24-7 shooting schedules!  What's not to like?
