The weekend is upon us again. The smell of Friday is slowly ushering in the weekend and who can blame our excitement?
But people will be people and sometimes we run out of ideas on how to spend the beauty that is the weekend.
We reckon among the list of things on your list this weekend, watching a movie is one of them. But then again, there lies another array of confusion as you’d tend to decide what movie to choose. TGIF anyone?
In the true spirit of movie-loving and enthusiasm, we compiled a list of three movies you should see this weekend. And of course, you can thank us later. We know, we’re awesome like that.
As much as possible we made this list to be somewhat diverse:
Binge-watch Mad Men
We cannot fully express how awesome this series is without writing a textbook. Set between 1950 and 1970 American, Mad Men explores the lives of ad men of Madison Avenue. Full of real historical facts, full structure of early American advertising industry and the personal lives of individual characters, this series will have you flipping.
Be cautioned, however, to be brave before watching Mad Men. If you do not the stomach to follow through really unpretty realities or find smoking offensive you may not wish to watch this series.
However, if you are a lover of history, witty dialogues, and general shocking plot, Mad Men is for you.
The series boasts of 7seasons and 52 episodes of averagely an hour and may take you more than a weekend to complete.
It also isn’t a bad idea to rewatch Mad Men ya know?
See Crazy Rich Asians at the cinema
With almost two weeks after its official release in Nigeria, Crazy Rich Asians is still pulling Nigerians to the cinemas.
There sure is nothing like watching the latest blockbuster at the cinema. Don’t be a LASTMa drag that friend you owe a movie date to the closest cinema and watch this incredible movie, That way you’ll be able to contribute in Crazy Rich Asians conversations at work next week.
Throw it back to Lion King 1 and 2
Hey fellow millennials, remember how crazy most of us back in the day about Lion King? I know right? Life happened so fast.
What better way to spend the weekend than recall all the important lessons this classic animation taught us. From Mufasa’s reign to Simba’s struggle with fear of the exiled lions and Kiara’s initiative to bring the lions together.
The Lion’s pride, Rafiki’s foresight, and Pumba and Timon’s humour are sure wowers that makes Lion King as much loved as it used to be. And please let’s not go into the soundtracks for this film.
Lion King is forever a classique and your weekend will be blessed with its wonder. Oh and if you did not know, the movie has a humorous part 1.5 released in 2004. This third part features Timon and Pumba and takes us to the behind-the-scenes and uncut scenes from 1 and 2.
Stream To All the boys I’ve loved
This Netflix original was released about a month ago and is a super movie. The plot follows an Asian-American teen who’s secret letters to her crushes gets mailed to them. She suffers unwanted attention from her cushes and may even fall in love with one of them.
