Do you remember your first taste of success? It may have been when you were 5 years old and you sweet-talked your mom into just one more bite of the peanut butter pie. Your first taste of success may have come later. You may remember what it felt like to land your first sale. It was oh so sweet.
Something happens after that first taste of success. We begin to chase success. We want to feel like we did when we first tasted success.
The high. Oh, that high of success. It felt so good.
Four years after the release of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynold and Samuel L. Jackson return to their buddy comedy with a new addition – The hitman’s wife, Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). This time, disgraced AAA bodyguard Michael Bryce has been hired by Sonia to rescue her husband, Darius.
Michael does the extract. He saves Darius. The adventure doesn’t end there, though. The adventure only begins.
While irreverent and vulgar, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is entertaining. It takes you on a journey of despair, heartache, and laughter. If you can get past the language, I highly recommend The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.
With that, there are also leadership lessons in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. That’s what we’re going to take a look at today. So sit back and remember, as Michael Bryce would say, to fasten your seatbelts.
Over 20 years ago, Galaxy Quest was released. It tells the story of the cast from the fictional television series Galaxy Quest as they must come together and face a real threat to the galaxy. These actors don’t know what to do. They’re only actors. Can they take on the evil forces and save the galaxy?
Starring Tim Allen as Jason Nesmith, Sigourney Weaver as Gwen DeMarco, the late Alan Rickman as Alexander Dane, the laughable Tony Shalhoub as Fred Kwan, Sam Rockwell as Guy Fleegman, and Daryl Mitchell as Tommy Webber, Galaxy Quest is a top-notch comedy. I’m surprised more people aren’t talking about this classic movie.
Galaxy Quest is full of laughs. You’ll chuckle at the absurdity of the situation. Yet you’ll enjoy the pacing of the movie and how it all comes together. Read more...
