The Predator is the fourth film in the Predator movie series. This time around, a Predator ship crash lands on Earth. An Army Ranger team is attacked by the Predator (Brian A. Prince). And then we discover there’s more to this Predator than we had once believed.
The Predator is a fast-moving, violent (it is a Predator movie, after all), and a vulgarity-filled film. If you’re offended by strong language, you would be best suited to stay away. The number of f-bombs dropped was ridiculous.
Yet the movie provided plenty of action. The fights between the Predator and the humans were captivating. Then the big fight that turned into a whimper was crazy!
All of this plus the leadership lessons in The Predator could be a reason for you to watch the latest Predator installment.

Disney’s Pocahontas released in 1995 and is an animated romantic musical. Yeah, that’s quite the mix but Disney’s formula works for Pocahontas.
Telling the story of the American Indian Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) and Captain John Smith (Mel Gibson), you see how two worlds can collide. Pocahontas comes from an American Indian tribe. John Smith arrives on a ship looking for gold. The Indian tribe were a fairly peaceful people. The people John Smith arrived with were ready to kill the savages.
Worlds collide. Love blossoms. And leadership lessons abound.

Kin tells the story of Elijah Solinski (Myles Truitt), his ex-con brother Jimmy Solinski (Jack Reynor), and former stripper Milly (Zoe Kravitz). Eli (what Elijah goes by in Kin) and Jimmy are fleeing Taylor Balik (James Franco), a crime lord who Jimmy owes $60,000.
Also starring in Kin is Dennis Quaid as Hal Solinski, Jimmy’s father and Elijah’s stepdad. He plays a minor part in the movie and the movie largely focuses on the two brothers.
Toss in an alien weapon and a major road trip and you’ve got Kin. A fun sci-fi/action movie that will keep you guessing.
Kin starts off slow. Builds to a major crescendo. And leaves the audience with more questions than answers.
This isn’t necessarily bad. Kin was a movie I enjoyed. Pam found Kin so-so but agrees with me that there are plenty of leadership lessons in Kin.
What do you get when you cross My Big Fat Greek Wedding with a cast of Asians? You get the hilarious, entertaining, enjoyable movie Crazy Rich Asians.
Crazy Rich Asians tells the story of the extremely wealthy and good looking Nick Young (Henry Golding) and his girlfriend Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as they travel to Singapore for Nick’s best friend’s wedding. From there, antics ensue.
Rachel learns the truth about Nick’s family (they’re crazy rich and cray cray). A crazy bachelor party is thrown for the groom, Colin Khoo (Chris Pang). And Nick’s family tries to break Nick and Rachel up.
It’s a great date-night movie for those tired and weary leaders to take their wives out to and have a great laugh. Crazy Rich Asians is also a great movie to learn leadership lessons from.
