Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie

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

On July 12, 2002, the USA Network debuted the comedy Monk. The series followed Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), a detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder. This led to hilarious moments throughout the series. Monk would solve cases but would also be repulsed by situations he would get into. He’d have to have hand sanitizer, wet wipes, count steps or touches, and more. His obsessiveness was funny.

At the end of the original Monk series, Monk had solved his most pressing case, the murder of Trudy. He’d considered retirement and seemed to be getting better concerning his obsessive-compulsive disorder. 21 years later, Mr. Monk’s Last Case lost the charm the television series had.

But now Monk’s back to take on his final case. It involves the death of Molly Evan’s (Caitlin McGee) fiance Griffin Briggs (Austin Scott).

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Argylle

A Reel Leadership Article

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

Argylle is the latest film from director Matthew Vaughan and writer Jason Fuchs. Set in the world of Kingsman (do you remember the multiple movies from this franchise?), you’re in for a milder, tamer version of those films. 

Enter the world of Elly Conway (Bryce Dallas Howard), a reclusive author with a special knack for revealing real-world happenings in her novels. Her main character, Argylle (Henry Cavill), is a special agent. He’s had adventures in multiple books, but Elly’s soon-to-be-released book is missing something special.

Encouraged by her mother, Ruth (Catherine O’Hara), Elly begins to rewrite the ending of her latest book. It’s sure to be a major plot twist. One that may bring about the end of Argylle.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

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

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is an engaging animated film. Hailing from DC Comics, the film has the Green Lantern Corps’ home planet of Oa under attack. Hal Jordan (Nathan Fillion) prepares the new Green Lantern recruit Arisia (Elisabeth Moss) for the upcoming attack.

How Hal does this is interesting. Hal doesn’t send her to combat school, simulations, or anything like that. No, Hal recalls stories of the first Green Lantern and other Green Lanterns that have come before her. 

Members of the Green Lantern Corps. Arisa (blonde woman), Hal Jordan (Dark haired male with a mask over his eyes), and Sinestro (A human-like alien with red skin)

She’s prepared for the upcoming battle by recalling history and what other Green Lanterns have done. 

This was a masterful way to share the history of the Green Lantern Corps, explain how things are done, and show viewers that there’s more than action for these DC heroes. It’s also a great way to teach the viewer impactful leadership lessons. 

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From The Iron Claw (The Von Erich Family)

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

In this edition of Reel Leadership, we focus on the 2023 A24 film The Iron Claw. The Iron Claw focuses on what may be considered the greatest family in professional wrestling. 

The Von Erichs consisted of Kevin Von Erich (Zac Efron), Kerry Von Erich (Jeremy Allen White), David Von Erich (Harris Dickinson), Mike Von Erich (Stanley Simons), and Chris Von Erich (not mentioned in the film). Kevin, Kerry, and David were terrific wrestlers. Mike… He struggled. Then, there was their father, Fritz Von Erich (Holt McCallany). He founded the World Class Championship Wrestling in Dallas, Texas. He was a powerful wrestler in his own right who pushed his children far beyond what he should have.

However, many believed the family was cursed.
