Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts

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.

And the Transformers movie franchise continues to roll out. This past weekend, Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts debuted in theaters around the world. In this latest Transformers movie, we not only get Autobots, but the Maximals are also introduced to filmgoers.

I remember when Transformers: Beast Wars originally aired on television. I was upset. I didn’t believe they were real Transformers because they weren’t vehicles. They were a cheap knock-off putting Transformers into animals.

Eventually, I came to love the Beast Wars series. The story was well-done, the animation was top-notch, and spawned multiple off-shoots.

In Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts, Earth faces a significant threat. Unicron (Colman Domingo), a planet-sized Transformer, is searching for the Transwarp Key. This device would allow him to warp anywhere in space or time. It’s a powerful device. One that would cause the destruction of the universe.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Hellboy 2019

The movie theater has been a great place for those who love comic book movies. Last week, theatergoers were treated to the DC Comics movie Shazam! In two weeks, audiences will be treated to the Avengers: Infinity War sequel Endgame, and this weekend saw the release of Dark Horse Comics Hellboy.

Hellboy is the 3rd Hellboy movie to be released in the theaters. The first two starred a man who nailed the look of Hellboy, Ron Perlman. Sadly, Perlman did not return for the latest entry in the Hellboy series as this is more of a reboot than a sequel.

Hellboy, Alice, and Major Ben Daimio in the new Hellboy movie 2019

The Hellboy movie is based upon the Mike Mignola comic books and graphic novels. Hellboy is stuck in a war between the supernatural and human worlds.

While I remember the original Hellboy movies to be a fun, fairly upbeat series of movies, the latest Hellboy movie takes a dark turn. It’s much darker and grittier than the previous movies. This will turn some people off.
