Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie

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

On July 12, 2002, the USA Network debuted the comedy Monk. The series followed Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), a detective with obsessive-compulsive disorder. This led to hilarious moments throughout the series. Monk would solve cases but would also be repulsed by situations he would get into. He’d have to have hand sanitizer, wet wipes, count steps or touches, and more. His obsessiveness was funny.

At the end of the original Monk series, Monk had solved his most pressing case, the murder of Trudy. He’d considered retirement and seemed to be getting better concerning his obsessive-compulsive disorder. 21 years later, Mr. Monk’s Last Case lost the charm the television series had.

But now Monk’s back to take on his final case. It involves the death of Molly Evan’s (Caitlin McGee) fiance Griffin Briggs (Austin Scott).

In 1936, the University of Washington’s Junior Varsity crew team did something amazing. The crew team consisted of Don Hume (Jack Mulhern), Joe Rantz (Callum Turner), George “Shorty” Hunt Bruce Herbelin-Earle), Jim McMillin Wil Coban), John ‘Johnny’ White (Tom Varey), Gordy Adam (Joel Phillimore), Charles ‘Chuck’ Day (Thomas Elms), Roger Morris (Sam Strike), cox Bob ‘Bobby’ Moch (Luke Slattery). They beat varsity teams and then went to the Olympics. From there, they won the Olympic games and took home gold medals for the USA.

These boys, not men, competed in one of the most grueling sports imaginable. Most people don’t even know what crewing is. I only knew what crew was because of the ethical clothing boutique my wife shops at and does a side hustle for.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From The Marvels

Many people have said the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been in decline since the amazing Avengers: Endgame movie. While there haven’t been as many great movies since that film, Marvel still has had some winners. 

Having previously seen Captain Marvel and not being a fan, I wasn’t too excited about their latest film, The Marvels. The Marvels continues the story of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau/Photon (Yeyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani). The trio all have light-based powers that get entangled thanks to a new threat.

For those of you who haven’t watched Captain Marvel or the Ms. Marvel Disney Plus series, you may come away a little lost. This movie picks up after both of these, and they are crucial to understanding what is happening. However, I think you can enjoy this movie even without the backstory from those two entries.
