These Five Movies Will Still Wow You This Weekend

Published

on

Are you a lover of movies? Are you bored and you wish to get busy this weekend? This right relaxation series is right here at your finger tips. Hollywood is growing now and releasing new Sci-Fi and Action movies among others that you love to see again and again. You can simply visit the cinemas and watch them, or relax in the comfort of your sitting room to see some of them. They will surely worth your while. Some of them are:

  1. Annihilation

I have to confess that I haven’t yet read the Jeff VanderMeer novel on which this movie’s based, but there’s a very good reason for sticking Annihilation on this list:

Garland broke into directing with his stunning debut, Ex Machina. Annihilation‘s another genre film, a sci-fi thriller starring Natalie Portman as a biologist on the hunt for her husband in an area beset by environmental disaster. Oscar Isaac’s the missing husband, while Jennifer Jason Leigh plays a psychologist.

It promised to be astounding this, and in a year with some real treats ahead, this is the one that just about squeezed to the top of the list. Unfortunately, due to some very frustrating reasons not worth getting into again here, we may not get to see it on the big screen here in the UK, as it went straight to Netflix.

  1. Early Man

It’s telling that in a year when The Incredibles 2 is listed, there’d still be one animated movie we’d place higher in our anticipated movies list. But then director Nick Park hadn’t made a movie since 2005’s Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit, and hadn’t directed since 2008’s Wallace & Gromit short, A Matter Of Loaf And Death.

That he’d back directing, and introducing a whole new bunch of characters too, was a very big deal for us. The film in question was Early Man, a new stop motion animated venture that used the considerable skillset of Aardman to take us back to caveman and cavewoman times. This time, there was an adventure that involved football, fighting and lots and lots of comedy – All from a director whose mantelpiece heaves under the weight of Oscar gold. Don’t bet against him having to nip to Ikea for a new shelf…

  1. Avengers: Infinity War

It seems the end is nigh for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in its current guise, with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirming that the Avengers film after this one will wrap up the main storylines. Infinity War, from Captain America: Civil War helmers the Russo brothers, promised to build up to something really rather special.

The gang was pretty much all here for this one, which dealt with the escalating stakes of the MCU. Hopefully, it would be more The Avengers than Avengers: Age Of Ultron? We were hugely looking forward to this one

  1. The Irishman

It’s unclear whether this one will get a theatrical release at all, but it’s hard to be a movie fan and not be excited about the reunion of talent the long-mooted The Irishman represents. Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese for a start, back working together on a film for the first time since Casino. Then, Joe Pesci has been coaxed out of semi-retirement. Al Pacino is on board. Harvey Keitel is in there. Anna Paquin. Jack Huston, Bobby Cannavale. It’s a hell of a list. The film is a mob drama, as De Niro’s Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran tells the story of how he got involved in the murder of Jimmy Hoffa.

It’s 50/50 whether we’ll see this in cinemas next year. Netflix is set to premiere it on their service in 2019, but we’d wager it’ll get an Oscar-qualifying big screen outing at the end of 2018. Hope so.

  1. Deadpool 2

In a year drenched with comic book movies, this was the highlight on paper of the three that were X-Men-tinged. Ryan Reynolds reprised the role of foul-mouthed merc Deadpool, this time with whatever shackles that were on firmly taken off. There was some early fallout on this one, with director Tim Miller leaving the project due to ‘creative differences’ with Reynolds. John Wick co-director David Leitch stepped in instead.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the script again, and the cast featured Morena Baccarin, T J Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Josh Brolin and Jack Kesy. We expected megamoney to be made.

I Don’t Wear Pants, Nkechi, Falegan’s Crossfire Continues

Published

on

In a series of posts shared via her Instagram Stories on Thursday, May 12, 2022, the actress debunked Falegan’s claims.

“My fave ex be ‘babe when did you start wearing panties’ The joke is on you bro…the veejay smells like heaven and you know it,” she wrote.

She once again accused the politician of trying to use her name and their breakup to gain fame.

Blessing described Falegan as a failed politician without prospects.

The movie star’s latest rants came after Falegan released a video on social media where he called her out over her personal hygiene.

“I apologised to her because I just want bygone to be bygone. Not because I want her back. Are you serious? Do you know why I left? I left for a different reason. Personal hygiene,” he said.

“You have to tell a woman to change her pants in three days. You have to tell a woman to brush her teeth in the morning. After the whole thing, everywhere is messed up. You want me to manage that? No, I wouldn’t.”

“So if my online in-laws una dey vex, make una go marry am. And you think I should just manage it. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and that’s the fact. And if the online in-laws are saying you guys are perfect together, go marry am, una go understand.”

Falegan’s video came barely 48 hours after he apologised to the actress.

The politician admitted that he “messed up” during his relationship with the actress.

In April 2022, the former couple took to their Instagram accounts where they revealed that their union was over.

“You don’t have the right to chat with me when you are broke sha. Who do you want to waste her time? My every second counts bro. Ain’t ready to waste it on some meaningless conversation,” she wrote.

The movie star’s post is coming barely a month after she slammed her ex-partner, Opeyemi Falegan for being broke.

She explained that he became notorious for always begging for financial assistance to fund his foundation, a move that didn’t sit well with the actress.

She also revealed that Falegan was a jobless man who would stay at home for months without doing anything.

“If they ask me what my so-called boyfriend does for a living, walai I don’t have an answer. 3 weeks in London you no wake up go work, sleep and wake up for live video. If joblessness was a person…Tueh, she wrote.

The news of the couple’s split first broke in April 2022.

According to several reports, the marriage crashed over infidelity allegations.

However, the movie star’s estranged husband, Falegan may have confirmed the end of their marriage after he went live on Instagram.

The actress later shared a post on her Instagram Stories she denied being dumped. According to her, she did the walking away from the marriage.

“The one wen I nor like na if you lie say you leave me. Nobody ever does…I simply take a walk and not say my side of the story cus really its not worth it. Say all you want to say but you see lie? We wear same trousers, na there you go vex me,” she wrote.
