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
Tom Cruise took over the reigns as the leading character in the new The Mummy movie. Universal Studios is rebooting multiple monster movie franchises to create a Dark Universe. The Dark Universe is expected to include Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Bride Of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, and The Invisible Man. 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...
Recent DC Comics movies have fallen flat. Both Batman Versus Superman and Suicide Squad failed to receive praise from critics and viewing audiences alike (though I thought Suicide Squad was an enjoyable movie).
June 2nd saw the release of the new Gal Gadot Wonder Woman movie. I wasn’t expecting much from this DC Comics movie but I wanted to watch it as the movie ties in with the upcoming Justice League movie.
Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman surprised me. I thought Gadot did a great job as the Amazonian who leaves her home of Themyscira to help the world of man overcome the greatest evil they’ve ever faced. Overall, I was very pleased with the results of the new Wonder Woman movie.
While the movie entertained, the movie did something else. There were plenty of leadership lessons in the Wonder Woman movie and I’m going to share those with you today. Read more...
Alien: Covenant is a sequel to the 2012 Prometheus and a prequel to the 1979 Ridley Scott Alien film series. Seeing the backstory of the Alien series brought to life was intriguing. I knew where the movie was headed but couldn’t quite wrap my mind around it.
Set in 2104, we see the spaceship USCSS Covenant headed for a distant planet when something goes terribly wrong. Covenant is transporting thousands of people from earth to a new plant. The ship is hit by a neutrino burst which kills some of the colonists and the captain of the ship.
From there, carnage breaks loose. There’s non-stop action until the final scene. And it was well worth the viewing.
Not only that, I was able to discover these amazing leadership lessons from Alien: Covenant.
