I’m not very familiar with director Wes Anderson’s films. The only film of his other than Asteroid City that I have viewed is the 2009 Fantastic Mr. Fox. That was an enjoyable and unique movie.
Having recently watched Asteroid City, I’ve been left confused and scratching my head. I’m not sure what I watched. From what I gathered, the film is about a famous author and a fictional play he wrote about a grieving father.
The tale weaves in and out of the play, a few intermissions, and an epilogue.
There are some laughs, an interesting story filled with A-List stars, including Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Jeffrey Wright, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, and others, along with a lot of confusion. There are also plenty of leadership lessons in the confusion. We will look at those leadership lessons from Asteroid City in today’s Reel Leadership article. Read more...
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. Read more...
Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War was the beginning of the end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This weekend’s Avengers: Endgame movie has forever changed the face of the universe we’ve grown to love over 10 years and 22 movies.
Caution: Major Avengers: Endgame spoilers will follow in this article.
Endgame picks up shortly after the end of Avengers: Infinity War. You see Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) teaching his young daughter how to shoot a bow and arrow. As she goes to collect the arrow, Clint begins to notice something isn’t right…
His wife, other child, and then his daughter have all disappeared. He’s left there all alone.
This is how Endgame begins. The ruthless pace doesn’t let up. It also doesn’t disappoint.
There were plenty of high and low points throughout Endgame. Many emotions were felt. And many Reel Leadership lessons were found in Endgame. Read more...
