Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Nobody The Movie

I slept on the recent movie Nobody (you can rent it on Amazon). After watching Nobody, I am regretting my choice. However, with a movie named Nobody, it is hard to fault someone for skipping over it.

Nobody is a great, smart revenge movie that brings more to the table than movies it has been compared to. You might hear Nobody compared to great movies such as John Wick (pick up my leadership lessons from John Wick on Amazon!), Die Hard, and Taken. While Nobody shares similarities with these great movies, Nobody stands alone in the way it delivers the tale. In the end, you’re left thinking “Man… they did something I wasn’t expecting. They did it with style and smarts.”

I hope you’ll go and see Nobody. I also hope you’ll enjoy what’s coming next.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Mortal Kombat The Movie

“Get over here!” “Flawless victory!” “Finish him!” “Fatality!”

If you grew up in the ’90s and played video games, the above quotes probably remind you of a video game. The game was maligned by the media and government officials. They said the game was too violent (and it was a violent video game). They said it would destroy our youth (they went a little overboard on that one).

Yet, Mortal Kombat became a worldwide phenomenon. The video game spawned 18 video games. There were also two live-action movies released in 1995 and 1997. These movies were released when video game-to-movie translations were not good.

I am happy to say that the Mortal Kombat movie released in 2021 breaks this trend. The new Mortal Kombat movie is as near flawless as it could be.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Tulsa Movie

I had the pleasure of watching the movie Tulsa this past weekend through a screener that I was provided. I was able to kick back and watch this touching movie in the comfort of my own home. Starring Livi Birch as the precocious Tulsa and Scott Pryor as a down-and-out Marine biker named Tommy, Tommy’s life is flipped upside down when Tulsa is removed from her foster mother’s home. Tulsa believes Tommy is her father and she will do anything to make a family out of the duo.

The movie is a faith-based film from the studio Pryor Films. It is based on a true story. Overall, the film is enjoyable but does have its overly cheesy moments.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From The Dark Knight

A Reel Leadership Article

The Dark Knight is the second of three movies in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The Dark Knight induces a new menace to Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe. Heath Ledger’s Joker emerges and begins to wreak havoc upon the citizens of Gotham City. Gotham City’s protector, Batman (Christian Bale) must rise to the occasion and deal with this new threat.

I remember first watching The Dark Knight. It was at a drive-in. After leaving the movie, I couldn’t understand why everyone loved this movie. I still don’t but after watching it this weekend, my opinion of the movie changed. The Dark Knight is much better than I remember it being.

Batman/Bruce Wayne has to navigate the difficulties arising from the Joker’s entrance to Gotham. Along with this challenge, there is a relationship challenge. He is vying to regain the love of Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) while she is fawning over District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart).
