Jumanji: The Next Level is the 4th movie in the Jumanji series. The first movie in the Jumanji series was the Robin Williams Jumanji. It was followed by the sequel Zathura: A Space Adventure. Then, the board game mysteriously became a video game with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Now, we have The Next Level.
Was there really a need for another Jumanji movie? No… I don’t think there was. Is Jumanji: The Next Level enjoyable? Yes… it was.
Jumanji: The Next Level sees the cast of Welcome To The Jungle return to the world of Jumanji along with two new characters, Eddie (Danny DeVito) and Milo (Danny Glover). The returning cast were Martha (Morgan Turner), Spencer (Alex Wolf), Bethany (Madison Iseman), and Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain). There was also Alex (Colin Hanks) returning. Read more...
As I typed out the title for the latest Reel Leadership article, I couldn’t help but want to sing the song It’s a Beautiful Day in This Neighborhood. The title of A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood brings back all sorts of memories.
Yet, A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood won’t tell you the story you were expecting. At least it didn’t for me.
Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers
I was expecting this movie to be about Mr. Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), his life, and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. In A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, you get to see people from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. These include Mr. McFeely (Daniel Krell), president and CEO of The Fred Rogers Company Bill Isler (Enrico Colantoni), and producer Margy (Carmen Cusack). But these people aren’t the main focus.

Pam and I go to the movie theater often. In the last couple of years, I can’t recall the movie theater being as packed as it recently has. I believe there’s one movie that has caused families to flock back to the theater. That movie?
You may remember the original Frozen movie from 2013. Frozen released to great fanfare. And for good reason. The original Frozen movie was fantastic. From memorable songs such as Let It Go to amazing animation. The original Frozen was a winner.
We’re now six years out from its original release. Frozen 2 has now hit the theater. People are coming in droves to the theater.
Frozen 2 continues where Frozen and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure left off. Elsa (Idina Menzel) is the queen of Arendelle. Though she’s the queen, she feels a strange pull to another land. A strange land. A land her mother had warned her and Anna (Kristen Bell) of. Read more...
21 Bridges is a hot new release that faces some stiff competition. Released on the same weekend as Frozen 2, the sequel to the original Frozen movie, 21 Bridges has an uphill battle to win. However, if you’re able to leave the kids at home (or send them to see Frozen 2), you will be able to see a thrilling cop drama.
21 Bridges tells the story of NYPD detective Andre Davis (Chadwick Boseman from Black Panther). His world is turned upside down as a massive manhunt begins for two cop killers, Michael (Stephan James) and Ray (Taylor Kitsch).
The story goes even deeper as Andre realizes something isn’t right with the narrative being told about the murder of 8 cops. There is a dark web being spun. And it’s not by the cop killers. Read more...
There have been many great movies released in 2019. From the Marvel blockbuster event of Avengers: Endgame to Rambo: Last Blood to the surprisingly good Pokemon: Detective Pickachu, 2019 is a year of great movies.
Then there are the movies that are going to stand the test of time. I believe Endgame will be one of those. Alongside Endgame will be the new release of Ford V Ferrari. Ford V Ferrari tells the story of automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and Ken Miles (Christian Bale), a British race car driver. These two believed they could rival the multi-winning Ferrari and bring Ford a victory at the 24-hour Le Mans race.
You will feel like you were transported back in time with Ford V Ferrari. The costumes were authentic to the period. So are the depictions of the Ford automotive factory in Detroit, Michigan. Read more...
