My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.
The latest installment in the Rocky/Creed film series has hit the theaters, and it’s a wild ride through Adonis Creed’s (Michael B. Jordan) past and future. In Creed 3, Adonis has retired from boxing when his friend from childhood returns. However, when Damian Anderson (Jonathan Majors) returns, he has a big chip on his shoulder. Adonis has to step up to the challenge of boxing his former friend and bringing him back from the brink of ruin.
A young Damian (Spence Moore II) had taken the fall when a young Adonis (Thaddeus J. Mixson) attacked Leon (Aaron D. Alexander), a person who had terrorized Adonis at the juvenile detention center he was in. Adonis attacked Leon at a convenience store. When Leon’s friends (Brian Neal and Corey Hibbert) jumped in, Adonis was in trouble. That’s when Damian pulled a gun to protect his friend. The police showed up, saw Damian’s gun, and arrested him while Adonis ran and escaped. Read more...
For over 21 years, Men In Black has brought entertainment to the big screen. The original 3 Men In Black movies starred Will Smith as Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K.
With Men In Black: International, you will not see the return of the two original agents we’d all fallen in love with. Instead, you’re treated to two new agents who do a great job of continuing the Men In Black legacy.
Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth in Men In Black: International
The first new agent you will meet is Agent M (Tessa Thompson who portrayed Valkarie in Thor: Ragnarok). The next agent is her partner, Agent H (Chris Hemsworth).
This new pair of agents create a fun, laughable experience as they are seeking the truth behind the murder of the alien Vungus (Kayvan Novak). Their adventures take them around the world and back to the Men In Black headquarters where things go crazy. Read more...
Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as Thor for the blockbuster movie Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third time Hemsworth has been featured in a stand-alone Thor film (surprisingly, I have not done a Reel Leadership article on the other 2 Thor films).
Thor: Ragnarok changes tones for the third film. Ragnarok feels more like a buddy comedy than full-on action/superhero. And that’s not a bad thing.
The previous Thor films ranked on the lower end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. They always felt like a letdown. Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t. Instead, Thor: Ragnarok delivers.
Not only does Thor: Ragnarok deliver in laughs, action, and adventure, Thor: Ragnarok delivers in leadership lessons as well.
