Now we are treated to Tom Holland’s first full outing as Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming. And it is an amazing blast.
Spider-Man: Homecoming continues Spider-Man’s story following the events of Captain America: Civil War. Peter Parker dons the same suit he had in Civil War to become the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in his own neighborhood.
Except for he begins to face challenges he can’t handle with his inexperience.
Peter Parker encounters Adrian Toomes/The Vulture (Played by Michael Keaton who once played Batman). He and his team are equipped with weapons fashioned from alien technology. That weaponry is dangerous. More dangerous than our friendly Spider-Man should be facing on his own. Read more...

I can hardly believe Transformers 5 released this past weekend. Transformers: The Last Knight is Michael Bay’s last outing as the director of the Transformers series.
Over the years, I’ve enjoyed seeing the giant transforming robots brought to the big screen. Even if the Transformers movies strayed from the 80’s cartoon I so fondly remember. Each new movie in the series brought out the little kid within me.
Transformers: The Last Knight did the same thing. I sat awed sitting in the second row staring up at the screen. Watching my favorite Transformers battling it out made my day.
I also some saw important leadership lessons in Transformers: The Last Knight. And I want to share those leadership lessons with you.

Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Transformers: The Last Knight
Let’s be honest. Walt Disney Picture’s and Pixar’s Cars 2 was a disappoint. Cars 2 strayed far from what made the original Cars movie great. Thankfully, Cars 3 veers back on track.
Cars 3 tells the story of Lightning McQueen and his new competitor Jackson Storm (which is a great name. My nephew’s name is Jackson.). Jackson Storm is a rookie race car blazing the course. He’s leaving the old competitors in the dust. That means Lightning McQueen isn’t the fastest anymore.
Cars 3 is an entertaining tale. The movie brings back the feel of the original and sets us up for a continuation of the story. And, as usual, I’m here to bring you leadership lessons from Cars 3. Be ready, there’s plenty.

We’ll get to more of the Dark Universe later. For now, I’ll focus on The Mummy.
The Mummy revolves around Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton, a military man who is also stealing artifacts from various archaeological sites. Everything goes sideways after he and his partner Jake Johnson’s Chris Vail stumble upon insurgents destroying ancient artifacts. Vail has to call in an airstrike which uncovers the hidden burial site of an ancient evil, Ahmanet.
Ahmanet killed her father, his wife, and their newborn son to prevent her brother from taking over the throne. She was thirsty for power and would do anything to retain the power she believed was her right. Read more...
