AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR…

thanos

Ladies and Gentlemen, 10years has been leading to this, even Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner) had goofed last year letting us know it wouldn’t go all well for the superheroes in this Avenger movie but who would have suspected? Anyways the reason for this write up, asides the emotional rollercoaster of a movie, is the fact that Avengers: Infinity War posted a higher weekend debut by any movie in history, by default it is the biggest opening weekend in almost any category. It was that huge for some who still don’t believe just how huge. A smart move by Marvel to open a week early so it does not clash with Deadpool 2 and this is excluding the debuts in China on the 11th of May which is the second highest place movies are watched.

It is safe to say the movie was bigger than Fate of the furious and I really don’t think we should bring Justice league into the equation, so I don’t sound like a bully, if a solo Black Panther movie could surpass it quickly then you know it is nowhere near Avengers. Can it beat Star Wars and Titanic at the box office? Only time will tell.

 

The 12TH HEADIES

The-Headies-2018

Guess the organising committee had done a great job in moving the awards from the previous time in which they did it in December to May which was a wise business move. If the awards were going to keep up its relevance. Many artists had cried out that business moved more during the yuletide season, so it would have been hard to show up for the event. But moving it to the month of May was just perfect and it showed with the number of artists present at the show. It held at the Eko Convention Centre and the lightings, production were amazing, the only award I probably had an issue with was the Best alternate sound which should have gone to Adekunle Gold but oh well, you cannot please everyone, here are the list of your winners below;

The El-Classico…

The Match between Real Madrid and Barcelona was an important match on all counts, though the Catalan outfit had won the league, Real Madrid could still had stopped the unbeaten of Barcelona, which was not meant to be by the way. Firstly, Real Madrid refused to do a guard of honour for the Barcelona team, much was said about it though I personally did not see the lead. The match began, and Suarez opened the scoring only for Ronaldo to equalise, tempers flared and Roberto was giving his matching orders when he hit Marcelo but that was not going to dampen the mood of Barcelona as Messi who did not want to be outshined scored a wonderful goal, before Gareth Bale also showed he was not finished but scoring a wonderful equaliser. The match ended in 2-2 and Barcelona could end the season unbeaten if they do, they would be the first side to go unbeaten in a whole season.
