My Favourite Movies of All Time + Fun Facts

Has anyone seen Lights Out? It's a 2016 movie that I should have seen by now but haven't because it's horror and I can't even watch it at night which is the only time I have. I'm kinda idle right now not because I've finished reading everything in preparation for my exams in 2 weeks but because I've had tests back to back this week and I just need my brain to rest. The plan was to achieve this by seeing movies but as at the time of typing this blog post, there's only Lights Out available and the snippet I saw is really scary. The available options were either to sleep or publish a post and I decided to go for the latter and share my favourite movies of all time. The ones that have a really special place in my heart. So, let's dig in


1. My Best Friend's Wedding : A 1997 movie that I never got tired of watching and would still watch over and over again because my love for WEDDINGS has been around since forever. Made me love Julia Roberts because her character experienced such heartbreak.

2. Home Alone: Because so much adventure! I was always looking forward to what Kevin would do next. He was so naughty in a cute way and I loved how he kept dealing with the bad guys in a cool, amusing way. I'm guessing this was everyone's favourite at some point.

3. Sister's Act: Whoopi Goldberg! I don't even know exactly why this makes the list but trust me, it's a personal fave. Probably because there was so much adventure and a lot of trying to stay undercover.

4. Maid in Manhattan: Featuring Jennifer Lopez! Is there anyone who didn't love this movie? Writing this just makes me want to get hold of the movie and watch it all over again!

5. Sudden Death : I love action movies and it's only right that one makes the list. This movie was super scary and got my adrenaline pumping. Van Damme Jean Claude was the hero in this movie and he had to save himself, his two children and many other people from a bomb attack during a football game.

There are many other notable mentions like Problem Child, Big Momma's House. Did you notice that these movies are old? Well, some hormonal changes occurred, I ditched movies and developed a huge interest in books. I always say a book makes me travel and experience more adventure as I get to create pictures of places in my head! I can't wait to visit Athens, Greece where one of my favourite books was set and see if I did justice to those pictures. I'm beginning to develop more interest in movies these days tho. I guess that's a good thing.

Movie FunFacts About Me
1. I claim to love action movies but I technically haven't seen a complete Fast and Furious.
2. I haven't seen Harry Porter. Wait, I haven't even read the book. It didn't fit into the kind of book I was interested in when I had the chance to. Not sure about now.
3. Anytime I watch movies, I watch it to the very end. I mean, I watch the part showing the cast, crew and everything in between. I do this especially when it's on my phone. Reasons are unknown.
4. I'd rather watch a movie that's subtitled than one that isn't. I'm guessing this has to do with the reading part.
5. I don't dig series. Imagine falling in love with one and you have to wait months for the next season. I'd rather watch when the whole movie is done. Bye-bye Game of Thrones. Bye-bye Empire.

What's one movie fact about you?
Are you a movie or a book person? Both?
What's your current favourite movie? Mine has to be Zootopia, it's animated. Really weird cause I don't always seem to hear what they're saying.
What movie are you looking forward to seeing? I don't think I have one at the moment.
Action or Horror? Maybe both?
Which of my favourite movies have you seen and which haven't you seen?
Which is your favorite?

I'd love to hear from you! Kindly leave me your thoughts.

P.S : I'm still in that Abusive Relationship . Infact, it's gotten worse. Really frustrating but I'd be fine.
xxxx.

  1. Aww, so sorry you're still battling with that bad boy
    Hehe
    So am I, but we'd be fine.
    I haven't had the time to see a lot of new movies unfortunately, even though there was a time in my life I watched one new movie every day I woke up.
    My all time favorites would be all Tyler Perry movies, especially For Colored Girls, and I Can Do Bad All By Myself
    I never get tired of watching those two, and I always shed a tear or two.
    Lol
    The last movie I saw was With This Ring, such profound message in it about not waiting for anything outside of you to change for you to experience true happiness with your life.
    I should see at least one new movie this weekend -- I hope.
    Happy Friday, Ola!

  6. Yasss, I love Sister's Act. I haven't watched the Harry Potter movies or read the books either! I'm more of a book person really but I do love a good movie (preferably a romcom lol). I'm really looking forward to seeing the Beauty and the Beast next year, I love everything Disney! I find it really hard to pick a favourite movie but I really liked Love Jones (I'm sure you'll like it too). Aww you don't like series? I'm more of a series person than a movie person, I love the continuity of a series but you're right. Waiting between seasons can be quite annoying.Which is why most times I go for series that have ended or have more than 3 seasons out so I can binge watch. And I never do horror, I can't take it. Wow this was such a fun post Laitan, I think I'm going to do something similar on my blog (I'll give you a shoutout of course), thanks for sharing. xx

  7. Home alone is my all-favorite. My number 1! Like I can never get tired of seeing it over and over again. It brings me back memories of Xmas and we're just about that season now. I love to see movies but definitely not war movies. Lol scares the hell outta me.

  8. I am a movie girl, I love movies. I love tv shows too but I get what you mean, waiting for the nest season can be so though. The true pain is when you really love a show and it gets cancelled, not funny.
    I like action and comedy. I can't believe you haven't watch a complete fast and furious. Home alone was me and my brothers favorite as a kid. I like Sister's Act and Maid in Manhattan too.
    I don't have a current favorite movie but I lot of movies to catch up on.
    Really cool post. Have lovely weekend :)

  10. Books over movies any day!

    I've only watched 2, 3 and 4. But... what?!?!?!?! How on earth have you not read harry potter. I'm a serious fan!! You could watch the movie though. It's one of the few that didnt botch the original story in the book.

  13. Great post hun! I love action movies too. Haha, haven't watched Harry Porter either! But Fast and Furious, how could you not have??? Actually tbh, only the first few were great. Others have just been meh.
    Subtitles can be distracting though.

  17. No Harry Potter, no fast and furious, no Game of thrones, so basically you really don't know who Harry Potter is? Or what Paul Walker was really like, or how powerful John Snow is going to be?? No Sir, I do not want to be you rn, no offense. Nice post btw. Xoxo

  18. I'm not really into movies not sure why. I'd rather have a book in my hands but if I badly need to watch one, it has to be subtitled. It's like I literally can't hear what they are saying if it's not subtitled. This is one of the reasons I can't watch the Christmas channel even though I'm in the Christmas mood. Anyway, I haven't seen Harry Potter either and it's a big thing here and everyone gets this look on their faces when they find out I haven't but I've been forbidden to watch or even read it so...... I really want to see Mrs peregrines home for special children or something like that. It's been on my mind since I saw the trailer but alas, no time. I havent seen fast and furious either. Its just too long. I feel ill get bored.Love all your posts

  19. Home alone is an all time favourite, I watch it every Christmas and anytime I can sneak it in during the year. I lurr-hv maid in Manhattan and I'm down for any Tyler Perry movie. I'm absolutely looking forward to The wedding party (I'm a sucker for love). Well, I'm a book and movie person more of book though...

  20. OMG I just had to comment because I haven't watched Harry Potter too. I only read little of the book once. I woulda thought I was alone. Glad I have a mate. I also watch movies from the very beginning to the end. No fast forwarding. I just know that I like any movie with Denzel Washington in it. The new crop of Nollywood movies are faves too

  21. Deadpool was my film for 2016... Then I went to look for this Indian film of 2010, 3 IDIOTS...

    Ola, that Indian film is the bomb.. One of my best films ever after Terminator 2 by Arnold Swarzinegger... Hope I got the spelling right?

    Happy new year to you Ola. Wish in you the best. More power to your elbow to write more inspirational articles.

Life Diary||February

Happy New Month!


The third month of the year is here. And it's my birth month. Whoop. February was really sweet. Just 28 cute and fun days that went by pretty fast. I didn't take stock last month because I wanted a change but right now, I'm too lazy and busy at the same time (how contradictory) so I guess I'd just stick with it for now. Here it goes

Learning  - That nothing is actually perfect in reality. There's always some sort of covering up that happens - in every area.

Hoping - That I get some really pleasant surprises in this new month and that I make the most of the 31 days.

Wanting - A cute pink/purple Bible. All those ones with nice inscriptions by the side to make reading and understanding easier. Birthday gift idea!

Wishing - Someone would just hit me up and bless my bank account. Yes, just like that. 😒😒

Reading  - Currently, The Joys of Motherhood by the late Buchi Emecheta. Apparently almost everyone read this book in Secondary school so I'm a legal …

4 Style Bloggers: On basic styling tips for short dresses

This is a very special post because it's the closest I can get to having something fashion related on the blog. At least for now till I finally adjust to my new timetable.

I always think of short dresses/skirts as a 'heys' dress - heys being the legit sound Nigerian men use to catcall-. I'd define a 'heys' dress for you right about now. That dress that basically gets you heys both with the mouth and the eyes. I don't know which is worse by the way. I think it has to be the former. I mean, every other person around gets to hear the heys and add to your embarrassment.

What inspired this post? Well, obviously I was wearing a heys dress and even though I could have changed before leaving home, there was no time because well I finished late and I also wasn't ready to disrupt the 'timetable' for the week. . I also remembered this popular tweet about how girls would wear short dresses and start pulling it down like we didn't know it was short befo…

Wedding Day Thrills : 6 Things I Look Forward to & 3 That I Don't!

Hey guys, I've not posted in a while. Isn't it nice how that screams consistency? Lol jokes. I promise to do better. I was watching TV the other day and came across this 'It's my wedding' program that showcases all the activities couples go through in prep for their wedding day. I remember being insanely attracted to all the Ovation magazines with wedding pictures when I was way younger.  I was constantly devouring the pictures and you'd think I'd grow up to become a bridal consultant or something close. Life oh Life.
My mantra has always been 'I'm looking forward to my wedding day and not exactly to marriage' but who am I deceiving? Lol.
I think every girl has their wedding fantasy kept somewhere close for easy editing and all so I thought to share some of the reasons I'm looking forward to getting wedded.

•  Pre-wedding shoot : Some years back, this wouldn't have been on the list but with all these beautiful and also hilarious picture…
