It is the Weekend! Yay!
After a long week of brainstorming, hopping in and out of zoom calls, aligning google
sheets/documents and meeting deadlines, what better way to celebrate than with some Movies to watch, or should I say Netflix And Chill?
We put together a list of movies, showing on Netflix this weekend and I personally would be
watching them so how about…a marathon? These movies are a combination of comedy,
adventure, romance and some action; which makes them movies to watch, so you see- we have something for everyone.
Exquisite Movies To Watch:
1. Sugar Rush
This film was written by Jadesola Osiberu and Bunmi Ajakaiye. Sugar Rush was released
nationwide on the 25th of December, 2019 and had a lot of controversies around it shortly after.
It is a crime action comedy that stars some of Nollywood’s finest like Adesua Etomi, Bisola
Aiyeola and Bimbo Ademoye as the leading characters.
After stealing a huge sum of money, a trio of sisters swipes it for some personal use untilthe authorities and some shady mob boss come to collect the cash.
If you missed the chance to watch this at the cinema, this is a great time to catch up on one of the most talked about movies so far in Nollywood. I also think this is such a good movie to kickstart the weekend with and maybe even do so with a friend or two.
Locked was released on August 9, 2019 and currently ranks Number 2 on the Netflix Top 10 category, so why not? This film was Directed by Simon Peacemaker and written by Akinlola Akinlade , it also stars one of Nollywood’s sweethearts Hilda Dokunbo as the mother-in-law, Sunny Nneji, Belinda Effah, Charles Granville and Abayomi Alvin.
A young lady takes her fiance to visit her parents only to discover that her mother killed her
father in a psychotic fit after she finds out he’s about to leave her for a younger woman. Upon
this discovery, her mother holds her and her fiance captive.
I suggest if you are a fan of ‘old nollywood’ then this movie would be on your watchlist too, as it
has a very strong and credible storyline with an amazing cast.
3. Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle
Upon the release of Charlie’s Angels 2 in 2019, there was a comparison with the first release which had made quite an impression on the audience on June 27, 2003. This film is an action comedy, directed by McG AND written by John August, Cormac and Marrianne Wibberley.
With beautiful and talented women such as Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, it is almost impossible to get your eyes off the screen.
The Angels investigate a series of murders which occur after the theft of a witness
protection profile database.
4. The Craiglist Killer
The Craigslist Killer was written by Donald Martin and Stephen Tolkin based on a true life story and events of the killings by Phillip Maroff. Actors Jake McDorman, Agnes Bruckner and Joshua Close.
It follows the dark, mysterious life Philip Markoff (Jake McDorman) conducted online while preparing for a promising future as a doctor and a life of happiness with his fiancée, Megan McAllister (Agnes Bruckner).
Seemingly destined for greatness as one of Boston University’s brightest med students, Markoff could do no wrong in the eyes of Megan, his friends, fellow students and professors. But hidden from those close to him was the violent wrath only he and his victims knew.
P.S: If you love thriller, suspense and life stories, then this is for you.
5. The Lovebirds
Okay, now I have to confess-I have seen this one! Well which is why I am recommending it for you. The Lovebirds movie is such a chill comedy with crime and action. The film is a Netflix original written by Aaron Abrams and stars our girl Issa Rae as the lead and Kumail Nanjiani.
So, we can say this is the last, but not the least of the 5 Exquisite movies to watch this weekend.
A couple experiences a defining moment in their relationship when they are unintentionally embroiled in a murder mystery.
Now, that’s a wrap! Leave a comment on our Instagram if you’ve seen any of the movies listed and how much you enjoyed it. Have a very exquisite weekend!
