yeah... think about all the crap that the USA produces... then think of Nigeria and India and multiply that by 4. Actually... more like by 8.. since America actually does make some good stuff. I was aware of Nigerian films because I saw many theaters playing them when I was in Ethiopia.

@biggus56 believing your own opinion to be of note in this discussion is rather self-aggrandising good fellow. I do support the right to a free and open discussion but you have clearly only deteriorated your own standing in the proverbial country club by staging an intervention on this occasion sir.

Yes. They have their own film industry commonly known as “Nollywood” it’s just as big as Hollywood and Bollywood

got all with over 5 minutes left on my first try. Are you sure Egypt doesn't belong on this list? Egyptian movies are very popular over here in the Middle East. Seems like they produce at least 46 per year. I'm also surprised that Sweden, Australia, Israel and some others failed to make the list.

Good job on that 5 minutes, I will never beat that, mainly the fact that they changed the maximum time to 4:00, or just simplified, 4 minutes

Australia was the first country with a film industry way back but it died and then it had a resurgence in the 1970s/1980s only to be killed off again, unfortunately.

it's always good when the ones you miss are the most common to miss (Netherlands & Switzerland).

for most I literally guessed by area mass and population - economy and all...

Great tip: guess countries that can be here, like Sweden, but that isn’t here, maybe like Australia, that isn’t here too, mainly guess big American countries and European countries that are powerful in economy, and Asian countries that are big, I generally don’t know about Nigeria, but maybe just guess the topper African countries

I had no idea that there was a movie industry in Nigeria at all, but then U.S. schools don't generally tell us much about Africa at all, other than that's where all the slaves came from.

Nigerian films are generally ultra-low budget (or no budget) schlock. A bunch fall into the "so bad it's good" territory.

United States 791 in 2015 with maybe 10 worth the time and/or money to actually watch. I would hope that the countries that make fewer are making better quality. Based on what US puts out, I wouldn't hold my breath for the other countries just churning them out.

I'm guessing you've probably only seen 10 of those 791 and decided the rest weren't worth watching based on personal prejudice. Yes the United States produces a lot of shitty movies. Mostly because most of them make big box office around the world. International audiences account for something like 80% of the take for Fast & the Furious and Transformers movies, for example. But the USA also produces more good films than anywhere else and by a substantial margin. Those films don't get shown overseas as often because there's not as much of a market for them.

There are more good films coming out in the USA than ever before. If you're only paying attention to the few that are in theaters like superhero movies and fast and the furious-like movies, I can see why you would mistakenly think that it's all crap. You gotta open your mind and actually find the good ones.

I cannot honestly remember seeing a Swiss movie. That was the last country I got when I'd tried all the ones I suspected (Sweden? I've seen many Swedish movies) and was just randomly guessing European countries. Or is it a tax thing? On what basis does UNESCO class movies as made in a particular country - it's often ambiguous with various production companies and studios contributing from multiple countries, particularly in Europe.

When you're watching a Swiss movie, you probably think you're watching a German movie. Same happens to the poor Austrian.
