While snooping around Drake’s lab on a tip-off, Venom, a slithery alien life-form enters Eddie’s body, talking in his head and making him unrealistically strong. They both struggle for power over Eddie’s body and become unintentional allies fighting to save the planet.

Book Review: Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward

Bob has written about 8 past Presidents in the White House including Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama. So even though I didn’t expect he will say anything no one has, I was hoping for a good read with a rich, detailed and verifiable perspective. Let me tell you now that I wasn’t disappointed.

Movie Review: Traffick

John (Omar Epps) plans to propose to Brea (Paula Patton) his journalist girlfriend, and  so the couple sets out on a romantic weekend getaway in a lovely mansion isolated in the mountains. But that’s where things start to get crazy. But I’m saying too much already. If you haven’t seen Traffick, watch the trailer below and let’s talk.

Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Circe was a strange child, lacking any notable power, despite being a goddess. She was not street-smart, cunning or beautiful and so was ignored by her father, unwanted and despised by her nymph mother and siblings, and remained largely unknown. Circe struggled to navigate her world, understand the politics required to thrive in it and make a name for herself.

Movie Review: Tyler Perry’s Acrimony

hen she said “I gave him everything, and I was everything he needed me to be” I knew I had to see this movie. This is another one with our favourite girl Taraji P Hanson, and she had me feeling all kinds of ways in this movie, and I’m not even sure how to articulate this.

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War

It’s here! The moment we’ve been waiting for. Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers team up to fight Thanos; their most powerful adversary yet!  His mission: to collect all six Infinity Stones and rebalance the universe. And as usual, our fate rests with the Avengers. You have to be living under a rock, on the moon, not to have heard about this movie because Thanos has gone and just about destroyed everywhere else!

Movie Review: 50 Shades Freed…Indeed

Movies as a form of entertainment are often designed to evoke emotion; make you think, laugh, have a good cry or even induce an anxiety attack. Some do this so well, you watch and you just can’t wait to tell everyone about it. However, there are those you struggle through and finally make sense of it at the end. And then, there is 50 Shades Freed.

10 New Movies You Have To Watch in 2018

This year, Hollywood promises a lot of great movies; new stories, sequels and prequels. There’s something for everyone; action, science fiction, drama and horror. So make a plan to go to your favourite cinema a lot this year.
This list is a collection of movies I’m eager to watch and my reasons why.

Movie Review: The Mountain Between Us

First, I feel like this movie was deliberately interracial, given all the racial tensions in the US this past year. The main characters are Hollywood A-Listers. Kate Winslet (famous for her role in the Titanic) plays Alex Martin an inquisitive international journalist covering war turn areas and Idris Elba a British neurosurgeon, Dr Ben Bass.

Review: Dunes Grill & Burger Bar Chicken Shawarma

Following my previous posts hunting down the best Shawarma in Abuja I decide to try Dunes Grill & Burger Bar Chicken Shawarma while at the Waffle Stop. Thing is, they seem to share the same sitting area and I was served both menus. On spotting Shawarama at the bottom left corner of the page, I decided to take one for the team.

Review: Waffle Spot, Dunes Center – Maitama

Oh, I’m quite excited to tell you about this one. I had the heartiest breakfast in the most serene environment, prepared and served by courteous and friendly staff. I think it is a great place for a family breakfast and I’m sure your kids would enjoy the choice of ice-cream along with breakfast, and find the colourful fresh fruits a delight.

Lounging in Lagos

Lagos for me is a lot like that loud unattractive lover you can’t stand to be around too long, but are enamoured with regardless. The hustle and bustle in this concrete jungle is characterised by the unpleasant smell of what I like to think is the sea, crowds of people at bus-stops, and the constant riotous noise; a mix of blaring horns and shrilling voices. But, it’s Lagos, my place of love.
