I love to watch movies hated by critics. Many times, these movies are more enjoyable than the critically acclaimed movies of our time. If nothing else, they are more fun.

One such movie is 20th Century Fox’s Daredevil film.

Many of 20th Century Fox’s films are decried by critics. Most of the X-Men movies have been poo-pooed by critics. The Fantastic Four movies (did you hear there’s a new one being produced by Marvel?!?) were hated. Daredevil fell in with these films.

The hate for the Daredevil movie hit especially hard after Netflix did a great series for Daredevil. I also highly recommend that version of Daredevil.

However, I have always loved the Daredevil movie. It was fun, entertaining, and kept my attention.

I don’t know about you, but I think I may love this Daredevil movie. If nothing else, Daredevil provides many leadership lessons.

Now, The Little Things could mean a lot of things. This one is for the movie The Little Things starring the always amazing Denzel Washington (check out his great movies on Amazon) as Joe “Deke” Deacon, a Kern County Deputy Sheriff who is sent back home to Los Angeles. He is there to collect evidence for a pending court case. His simple task became much more complicated as he begins to try to solve a complicated case involving a serial killer.

He runs into old friends and friends who have become hostile. He also runs into Jim Baxter (Rami Malek from Bohemian Rhapsody), a great up and coming LASD detective.

The two begin investigating the case together, though separately. Their investigation leads them to Albert Sparma (Jared Leto who played the Joker in The Suicide Squad), their top suspect.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger is the fifth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Released in 2011, this film tells the story of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his transformation into Captain America.

This is one of my favorite MCU films. The story of Captain America is one we can all aspire to.

A young man is full of hope. He desires to serve his country. However, his stature isn’t acceptable for the United States Army and he is rejected multiple times. He continues to try to get into the Army until Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) sees his potential to be the right candidate for Project Rebirth.

Steve’s story continues until we reach the beginning of the film. It’s a good ride.

Today, we’re going to look at the leadership lessons in Captain America: The First Avenger. We’ll see how this movie can intersect with our leadership and how we can become better leaders if we heed the lessons in this movie.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Yes Man

Jim Carrey stars as No Man Carl. Carl lives his life in a constant state of NO. No matter what it is in his life, his answer is no. That is until a conference changes his life and he becomes a Yes Man.

The movie makes it humorous. It makes us laugh. Yes Man should also make us think about what we say no and yes to.

That’s what Yes Man does. It takes us on a trip of constant no’s to constant yes’s to somewhere in the middle.

I loved the main message behind Yes Man. I didn’t love everything in the movie.

That’s okay. We can still learn and grow from things we don’t agree with or like.

Today, we’re going to look at the leadership lessons in Yes Man. I hope you’re ready, man!
