Think for a minute: What would you do if during a soccer game a wormhole opened, out stepped soldiers from the future, and they called the current generation to a war that happens in the future? That’s the premise of the Amazon Prime movie The Tomorrow War.
Starring Chris Pratt as Dan Forester, Yvonne Strahovski as Colonel Muri Forester, and J.K. Simmons as James Forester, the movie shoots us 30 years into the future once the call for help is made. Dan Forester travels to the future once he is conscribed to service, as almost every living and able-bodied human is in this world.

Cry Macho is the new Clint Eastwood movie. It stars Clint as cowboy Mike Milo. He’s old and well past his prime in the cowboy circuit.
Due to a favor owed to rodeo promoter Howard Polk (Dwight Yoakam), Mike agrees to go to Mexico to pick up Howard’s estranged son, Rafo (Eduardo Minett). The journey is slow but touching. It shows growth between the hurting Mike and the distrusting Rafo. In the end, the story concludes on a bittersweet note.
There’s nothing unexpected in Cry Macho. It is a typical, aging Clint Eastwood movie. That’s not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination. The movie is engaging and enduring.
Today, we’re going to look at the leadership lessons in Cry Macho. We’re going to see how Clint’s latest flick can help us become a better leader.
