Klaus is the 2019 English-language Spanish 2D-animated Christmas movie. It is unique in that the film is 2D but looks 3D. It was a sight to behold.
Klaus is a quirky film. It has its bright moments but it also lost me at the same time. The animation was stunning. The whiny Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) almost made me shut the movie off as I started to watch it.
However, I wanted to bring another Christmas film to the Reel Leadership archives. So, we get Klaus in addition to Die Hard and Die Hard 2.
Klaus turns into a touching movie of goodwill and kindness. I am glad I finished the movie. I think you will be as well.
Let’s take a look at the leadership lessons in Klaus today!
Project Power is a unique Netflix original movie. The premise is that a drug is being manufactured and distributed that gives users superpowers for 5 minutes. The catch? You don’t know what your superpower will be. Your power could be incredible, or it could be deadly.
The theme isn’t the only thing that is powerful about Project Power. There’s quite a bit of star power packed into this Netflix original movie. Jamie Foxx stars as Art. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as local cop Frank. Rodrigo Santoro is Biggie. Courtney B. Vance is Captain Craine. As you can see, Project Power has star power.
Project Power was a fun, different take on a superpower movie. Its uniqueness is just quirky enough to make the film innovative. Check it out if you like superhero and superpowered movies. Read more...
I try to watch at least one Christmas movie every year. Most Christmas movies do nothing for me. Except for movies like Die Hard.
Last year, I watched the original Die Hard again. It’s always a great Christmas movie. This year, I knew I had to watch a different Christmas movie, or else it would be hard to bring new leadership insights to Reel Leadership.
Going through Christmas movies, I remembered there’s another great Christmas movie. Die Hard 2: Die Harder.
Roll with me on this. Die Hard 2 is a Christmas movie.

Our local Celebration Cinema theater, Cinema Carousel, had a special screening of the new animated movie Wolfwalkers. Brought to the theater by Fathom Events, Wolfwalkers was a fantastic exploration of a fantasy world. If you’d like to see Wolfwalkers in the graphic novel format, it is available on Amazon.
Directed by Tomm Moore (The Secret Of Kells and Song Of The Sea) and Ross Stewart, Wolfwalkers is the story of young Robyn Goodfellowe (Honor Kneafsey). She is an apprentice hunter to her father, Bill Goodfellowe (Sean Bean). Bill doesn’t want his daughter outside of the city walls because of the wolves and Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell’s (Simon McBurney) orders.
When Robyn disobeys her father, she finds herself trapped in a trap set for a wolf. Hanging upside down, she meets Mebh Óg MacTíre (Eva Whittaker), a wolfwalker. Robyn’s whole life changes after this encounter. Read more...
