I was home on Thursday and Friday on sick leave. The plan I had was to use those two days to work on my blog and fix the issue that befell one of my posts on WordPress (the pictures’ orientation is wrong). My plan did not work because all I did was watch Limitless (Bradley Cooper’s blue eyes though) and subscribe to Ibakatv to watch Phone Swap (tired of waiting for it to come on YouTube or Irokotv). I can’t believe it took me two days to drop this mere picture post. I need to step up my game and concentrate on being consistent if I want this blog to be a success.
I love watching Nigerian movies. At least the ones that will not render me dummy after watching. I am very picky and will only watch movies produced, directed, written or acted by certain folks. One of those very, very few people is Kunle Afolayan. Such a talent! Two months ago, I got a chance to watch October 1 on NetFlix. It was beyond my expectation, although I knew it would be good. Compelling and interesting storyline, check. Top notch cinematography, check. Endearing and deplorable characters, check. The storyline is not your usual Nollywood product. Absolutely nothing typical like Chiazam The Barrow Pusher. I really wish he gets the break and recognition he deserves at home and overseas. He needs to be celebrated for taking risks and crossing boundaries.
I enjoyed watching Phone Swap. Though the quality of the movie on Ibakatv is very poor, you can trust Kunle Afolayan to deliver an entertaining piece. Nse Ikpe-Etim is another Nollywood product I will give my time.
I need to go and finish watching Limitless before Monday comes. Thank God thanksgiving is around the corner, another holiday. Not yet sure what my plans are for thanksgiving since my better half will be out of town.
