Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Oppenheimer – Barbenheimer Part 2

A Reel Leadership Article

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

The second film for the Barbenheimer weekend is the Christopher Nolan film, Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer tells the story of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy). He’s the creator of the atomic bomb. 

The Barbie and Oppenheimer movies couldn’t be more different from one another. Barbie is a fun romp, while Oppenheimer tackles the difficult decisions and consequences of the creation of a bomb that killed hundreds of thousands of people. 

That’s what makes Barbenheimer such a great idea; you get a fun movie with a weighty film.

Oppenheimer will deliver on that front if you’re looking for something heavy. It’ll also drop an atomic bomb of leadership lessons on you as well.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Spider-Man: Far From Home

A Reel Leadership Article

Tom Holland returns to the fun role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-Man: Far From Home picks up shortly after the recent Avengers: Endgame movie.

Peter Parker is still reeling from the aftermath of Endgame. His friend and mentor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Junior), is dead. He’s trying to figure out his place in the world he recently returned to. And he has a big legacy to live up to.

Not only that, Peter has a love interest, a classmate named MJ (Zendaya). His class is going on an overseas trip (hence the Far From Home subtitle) and he has a big plan. He’s going to ask MJ out.

All of Peter’s plans go in the trash when something crazy happens. A water elemental who looks a lot like Hydro-Man, a Spider-Man villain who controls water, attacks London while Peter and his class are there.
