It’s been 33 years since Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers the cartoon premiered. The cartoon series brought joy to millions of children worldwide as it aired. Sadly, the cartoon was canceled 30 years ago.

Now, 30 years later, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers returns on Disney Plus. Chip (John Mulaney) and Dale (Andy Samberg) return in a mix of traditional animation, CGI, and live-action. They’re joined by characters such as Ellie (KiKi Layne), Sweet Pete (Will Arnett), Monterey Jack (Eric Bana), Zipper (Dennis Haysbert), Ugly Sonic (Tim Robinson), Captain Putty (J.K. Simmons), and others.

The new Disney Plus exclusive movie brings back all the feels of the original Rescue Rangers TV series along with a contemporary twist. It’s great seeing characters that haven’t been used well in the recent past brought back to life.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Marry Me

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Marry Me is a newer rom-com starring Jennifer Lopez as music superstar Kat Valdez. She’s on a roll. It looks like she will go even further with the extravagant wedding to fellow singer Bastian (Maluma).

Everything changes in a heartbeat for the superstar. As she’s on stage to be married, she discovers Bastian has been cheating on her with her assistant.

The news of her fiance cheating gives her a brief breakdown where she looks out upon the crowd, sees Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson) holding a Marry Me sign, and tells Charlie “yes.”

From there, the comedy ensues. It’s also a touching story of second (or third and fourth) chances. It’s also full of leadership lessons.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Doctor Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. The movie is one many moviegoers have long waited for. Myself included.

The first Doctor Strange movie was a fun, trippy movie into the world of mystic arts. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is an attempt to bring a touch of horror to the Marvel universe.

The new movie isn’t bad. However, the movie struggles to find itself. Directed by the amazing Sam Raimi (the original Sony Spider-Man movie director and the creator of Army Of Darkness) just couldn’t seem to find the right mix. Despite this, I still highly recommend the movie.

You’ll get more than your fair dose of entertainment, horror, and comic book goodness. If you see Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, you will also find many leadership lessons.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Memory

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Memory is the latest Liam Neeson movie. If you don’t know who Liam Neeson is, he is famous for his role in Taken and other films where he has a specific set of skills.

Memory follows the same formula. Liam Neeson’s character, Alex Lewis, is slowly losing his memory. His career is an assassin for hire. However, when it comes time for him to harm a child, Alex cannot and will not do the deed.

As his time plays out, Alex decides he will make the people responsible for the sex trafficking of young girls pay. He will exact his vengeance, or justice, on these criminals who so easily escape the criminal justice system.

If you like Liam Neeson movies, you are going to enjoy this. You will go into the movie knowing exactly what to expect.

Few movies have received the praise I’ve seen for Everything Everywhere All At Once. My Facebook feed has been filled with praise from friends such as Greg Atkinson, Aaron Ponce, Soong-Chan Rah, Michael Frost, and others who convinced me to see this great movie.

At first, I was a little leary. Everything Everywhere All At Once is an A24 film. This film company does quirky, violent, and often horror-based movies. Knowing this, I was braced for something much different than I received (though there are some objectionable scenes in this movie).

Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn in Everything Everywhere All At Once

Everything Everywhere All At Once is thought-provoking, moving, and challenging to your ideas. You’ll leave the theater questioning many things, including what you just saw. I’m not saying that is a bad thing, but the movie leaves you pondering.
