All work and no play they say makes jack a dull boy. It happened yesterday, jetheights staff and the CEO of Jetheights Services Limited had so much fun at Viva cinema, Shoprite Ibadan, Nigeria. If you like to visit the mall, you’ll probably already know it’s about more than just shopping. It’s a place to meet friends, to have a bite to eat, a place to watch people or movies and somewhere to just hang out. We teamed up together and decided on which film we would watch and came up on watching “Gods of Egypt” which is one of the latest film in town. Gods of Egypt is a 2016 fantasy film featuring ancient Egyptian deities.

We saw two Egyptian gods battling it out in the film: Set the villain, defeats Horus who was the actor in the film, ripping out his eyeballs in the process. He then sets up tyrannical rule over Egypt, while Horus teams up with common thief, Bek to steal back his eye and regain control of Egypt.
This is not a full movie review, but I’m just going to explain some hilarious parts in the movie;
Gods of Egypt has some funny aspects which I will like to call entertaining moments, and, to be fair, it gets better as it goes along.
It was a lot of fun to watch. The judgment scene when you either go to a heaven-like place or a hell-like place was bad ass.
That moment when a giant cobra crashes and explodes like a bad guy’s car in a movie from the ’70s. That snake, one of two in the film, is wide as a locomotive and long as a parade.
Anyone who’s wondered what mythological Egypt would have looked like, what it would be like will enjoy the hell out of this movie, because that’s what it is.
Also we saw the gods actually about twice the size of the mortals lol, which is actually a nice touch with an ornate, visually overwhelming universe that’s part-myth, part-Marvel, and part-Playstation.

This is Jetheights month of social media awareness. After the film show, we took time to study few stores. Apart from those businesses who come to our office to inquire from us, we took that opportunity to visit the stores, gisted with them, knowing what’s up with their sales especially at this time of naira fluctuations.
At Jetheights Service Limited, we believe every member is a god. “We are therefore gods of impossibilities” -Ayo Alex Alao.
To be honest, the film was captivating, teaching us not to give up despite the fact that we are weak. Another thing to learn from the film is about team work. Team work is very important in life because two heads are actually better than one. Team work fosters flexibility and responsiveness, especially the ability to respond to change, encourages multi-disciplinary work where teams cut across organizational divides and promotes the sense of achievement, equity and camaraderie, essential for a motivated workplace. In the film, we saw Horus a mortal god teaming with Bek, an ordinary human being, although a thief but full of great potentials and others in order to defeat Set, the merciless god of darkness. Horus ended up achieving his aim to defeat Set and to recover the throne. If Horus had done this alone, he would not have achieved his aim. Properly managed, teamwork maximizes strengths, bringing out the best in each team member.
“When you stray from your path, you grow weak”. Understand who you are, the situations around you, try to discover yourself and understand that the power of focus involves staying in one’s lane.
After the film show, we the Jetheights crew took some cool pictures with our Boss (CEO of Jetheights Services Limited). Here are some of the pictures below:
