100 Movies to See in your Lifetime On M-Net Movies Bucket List Pop-up Channel

Published

on

What is your absolute favourite film of all time? The one that opened your eyes, tugged at your heartstring and made your soul leap with joy you were born in the golden age of cinema? Is there a stack of fantastic features your like-minded friends and family have been raving about, which you’re sad to admit you haven’t seen YET?  You now can tick off all the films you still need to watch or enjoy again before it’s time to kick the bucket!

M-Net and MultiChoice have created yet another exciting movie pop-up channel as a special treat to DStv Premium customers. Between Thursday 30th October and 2nd December, the M-Net Movies Bucket List pop-up channel will count down 100 popular and iconic Hollywood movies to see before you die.

This selection of fine films and all-time favourites will be showcased on DStv’s channel 109 with the first of the 100 movies scheduled for just after 4pm on Thursday 30th October. Thereafter, the countdown will continue all the way to the number 1 main attraction on Saturday 2 December at 6:30pm. Depending on the duration and age-restrictions of these films, the daily countdown will kick off on weekdays at approximately 4pm and on weekends just before or after 2pm.

To get a nod for the coveted M-Net Movies Bucket List, compiled by an expert team of film fanatics, a movie had to be entrenched in popular culture, define an era, shift mediums, uproot the status quo, delight a variety of audiences, impress critics worldwide and can reignite your love for movies.

“Our themed pop-up channels such as the Star Wars, Harry Potter, Fast & Furious and James Bond channels have been huge hits and we promised to continue curating unique experiences for our M-Net Movies audiences,” says Cecil Sunkwa Mills, General Manager, MultiChoice Ghana “With the M-Net Movie Bucket List we’re taking the pop-up concept to the next level. Never have viewers been able to see so many magnificent game-changing movies in one place over such a short time.”

While M-Net Movies will share the titles from #100 to #11 on its programming schedules, the Top 10 films on the list will be a top secret. This means that the final films on the M-Net Movies Bucket List will only be revealed to DStv customers on the day of the screening, so you will have to be sure to tune in to channel 109 on the day it airs.

“Keeping hush about these titles just adds to the excitement of this once-in-a-lifetime movie compilation. We all have our own bucket lists based on our own taste and we believe it will be great fun for movie fans to compare notes and see whether their favourites have made it onto the pop-up channel.”

The Bucket List Bonus features will comprise additional classics which can’t be ignored but which will appeal to niche audiences. Among these titles are vintage silver screen darlings that were ground-breaking at their time, like Mary Poppins, Casablanca and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The M-Net Movies Bucket List schedule (prior to the Top 10) will be published at www.mnet.tv you can also consult the EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) or catch up on the films you’ve missed on DStv Catch Up Plus.

If the day’s countdown doesn’t start at exactly 4pm or 2pm M-Net will communicate start times on social media https://www.facebook.com/MNet

October To Remember On DStv: NEW SERIES & MORE!

Published

on

October looks set to be an extra-ordinary month of series entertainment with the return of some of the most spectacular shows and premiere of new ones on DStv.

On 17 October, DStv customers can look forward to the irreverent BAFTA award-winning chat show host from the Emerald Isle with a fresh season of The Graham Norton Show, to air every Tuesday at 6pm on BBC Brit.

There is a whole lot more entertainment in store for DStv viewers with The Mayor (Vuzu AMP, 19 October at 5:30pm), The Good Doctor (M-Net, 9 October at 20:00), The Platinum Life (E!Entertainment, 16 October 6:55pm ),  Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath (Crime & Investigation, 18 October at 6pm)…plus a whole lot more!

Earlier this month the hit series Prison Break, returned with a special fifth season after a seven-year break on M-Net Mondays from 5pm. The multi-award nominated series picks up seven years after the apparent death of Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) his brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) gets a call that Michael may still be alive.

On Vuzu AMP on Mondays at 7pm, controversial and daredevil lawyer Annelise Keating (Viola Davis) made a return to the screen for another drama-filled fourth season of How to Get Away with Murder. Still in tow are Connor, Michaela, Asher and Laurel, her four law students who weather every legal (and sometimes criminal) storm with her.

The seventh and final season of The Fixer focusses on Olivia Pope and her new position as Chief of Staff for President Mellie Grant and the Command of B613 throughout October on Mondays at 7pm Express From the US. It also depicts Quinn Perkins as the boss of her crisis management firm Quinn Perkins & Associates, as well as staff at the White House in Washington, D.C., in their efforts to deal with and contain political scandals.

Also this October, BET is presenting a ground-breaking anthology series called Tales, whose plotlines are inspired by hip hop hits from N.W.A’s *** tha Police to Meek Mill’s Cold Hearted and the Notorius BIG anthem I Got a Story to Tell. At turns provocative and poignant, the series has set Black Twitter alight and attracted praise and criticism in equal measure. Tales will air on Mondays at 7:30pm on BET.

Our favourite survivors return to FOX (DStv channel 125) on Monday, 23 October at 7pm. The last time we saw Rick, his life was saved by Ezekiel, Maggie and the tiger. We’re sure Neagan is not happy at all with how things left off, so he’ll probably have a few tricks up his sleeves. We can’t wait to see what The Walking Dead S8 will serve up on Monday evenings.

AJ Sarpong resigns from EIB… joins Citi FM

Published

on

Media Personality AJ Sarpong has left the EIB family.

She started working with Adabraka-based Citi 97.3 FM as a Presenter and Producer of the morning show, Citi Breakfast Show Tuesday morning.

Prior to joining Citi FM, she was a host of the entertainment segment of mid-morning show The Zone on Starr 103.5 FM and also hosted ‘Tales from the Powder Room’ on GhOneTV.

Read below our feature on her in February 2017

At the young age of 25, Media Personality AJ Sarpong has achieved what her age mates or older can only dream of or imagine.

Sarpong is a TV/Radio Presenter, Event MC, Voice over artiste, actress and Radio/TV Producer with a career spanning 9 years and counting.

She works with Starr 103.5 FM and GhOneTV as a Presenter and Producer, and also a regular panelist on Tales From The Powder Room, a weekly show that airs on the same station.

Sarpong started out in the media at the age of 16. One of her early jobs in the industry was as a Media Relations Officer and Event Correspondent with ghanamusic.com, an artiste management/music promotion firm.

On TV and Radio, she comes across as one with the warmth of a mother or friend who will do just about anything to ensure that the people she loves are happy or in a good place.

This sentiment is corroborated by some friends and colleagues of hers we spoke to.

As an Event MC, Sarpong has hosted quite a number of events including Sarkodie’s Sarkoholic concert launch, DSTV I Factory, The Cake Fair, The MakeUp Revolution and the launch of the Bartenders Association of Ghana.

She is a columnist with Glitz Africa Magazine, sharing her thoughts on events and the entertainment industry in Ghana.

Sarpong is a “Killer combination of Beauty, Brains and Hardwork” as she calls herself: she has a Masters Degree in Journalism from the Ghana Institute of Journalism, and also a product of University of Ghana with a degree in Political Science and Theatre Arts.

Born Nana Adjoa Akuoko-Sarpong, she is the daughter of Nana Kwame Akuoko-Sarpong, the Omanhene of Agogo Traditional Area.

The sky is only the starting point for the ambitious, driven and focused AJ Sarpong.
