The previews for Fury looked amazing. A World War 2 war movie about the Sherman tank named Fury and her crew, Fury looked like it could compete with Saving Private Ryan.
From the reactions of the Celebration Cinema staff and the chit-chat of movie goers as they left, Fury was the best movie since Saving Private Ryan. I can’t say as I don’t know if I ever watched Saving Private Ryan.
What I can say is that Fury is a gripping and gritty movie about war-time.
The cast was superb. Stars such as Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeou, and Logan Lerman (he was Percy Jackson in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) brought the thrilling action to life. Read more...
Ever since I heard about runs like the Warrior Dash or Tough Mudder or The Spartan Race, I’ve longed to run in one. This year I was finally able to check this type of running event off of my list.
Throughout the run, I saw great examples of leadership. Things that peaked my interest and made me think.
That’s why I want to share what the Warrior Dash taught me about leadership in today’s post.
For those of you that don’t know, the Warrior Dash is a 5K obstacle course that includes upwards of 12 obstacles. These obstacles are there to test your strength and endurance. They will test your resolve. And they’re make you wonder if you’re able to make it through.
And that’s where I want to start with the leadership lessons from the Warrior Dash. Read more...
Until recently, you’ve probably never even heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy. After this weekend, all your friends are going to be talking about the new movie and how absolutely amazing it was.
I’m in the same boat. Only recently did I discover who the Guardians of the Galaxy were. Honestly, I’m disappointed I hadn’t heard about them before.
Who are the Guardians of the Galaxy?
That’s a good question as they’re an more obscure Marvel comics team. The Guardians are basically 5 space scoundrels who join forces to save the galaxy.
A quick rundown of the characters:
Peter Quill/Star-Lord – Peter’s an orphan who was taken by aliens at a young age. He became a scavenger and petty crook throughout the galaxy.
Gamora – She’s a green woman who’s the adopted daughter of Thanos Read more...
Another great summer blockbuster movie released over the weekend. This time it was Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the sequel to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.
After viewing Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, I was left wondering when they were going to do a sequel. The movie was well done and did a great service to the Planet Of The Apes series.
And I can say Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes continues in that tradition. The movie introduced tough themes that we need to think about. We can also learn leadership lessons from Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.
1. Caesar to his son Blue Eyes –
Think before you act, son.
The beginning of the movie held a powerful scene of the apes hunting in the wild. Caesar tells Blue Eyes not to move but he goes after one of the wild beasts. Chaos ensues as a brown bear attacks Blue Eyes and the other apes have to come to his rescue. Read more...
