My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.
The much-anticipated sequel to the 2019 film Shazam! opened recently. Shazam! Fury Of The Gods brings just as much fun to the theaters as the original film. The film continues Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) journey as the boy who says SHAZAM! and is turned into a superhero (Zachary Levi).
Critics have panned the movie. I think they don’t understand the point of film at times. Sure, Reel Leadership looks at the leadership aspect of movies, but movies can also entertain. They take us to a place we couldn’t go to before. Shazam! Fury Of The Gods brings us a lot of fun, laughs, and smiles throughout.
Point Blank is a Netflix original movie that recently was released on the streaming service. The movie tells the story of Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson in The Avengers movies) as Paul the nurse and Frank Grillo as the criminal Abe.
What you get in Point Blank is an awkward buddy movie where the two stars battle against criminals and corrupt cops. It could be a fun summer movie but, somehow, Point Blank shoots blanks in this original movie.
That’s not to say you won’t walk away with Reel Leadership lessons from Point Blank. That’s not the case. You will find plenty of leadership lessons. What you won’t find is a great movie.
I was okay with that as it was a semi-enjoyable movie. But enough with the quality of Point Blank. It’s time to discuss the leadership lessons in the movie.
Previously, Angelina Jolie brought the video game Tomb Raider to the big screen. Now Alicia Vikander takes over the moniker of Lara Croft and is the lead actress in the newest Tomb Raider movie.
Tomb Raider tells the story of Lara Croft. Lara is the daughter of missing adventurer Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West). She starts her adventure after she signs the papers declaring her father dead, though his body has never been found. After signing the papers, clues lead her on a journey she never imagined she’d go on.
During Lara’s adventure, you’ll laugh and gasp. You’ll also find leadership lessons in Tomb Raider and Lara’s adventures.

My thought going into Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was “Do we really need another remake of a film?” The 1995 Jumanji starred Robin Williams as Alan Parrish (who gets a nod in the new Jumanji). Williams character was sucked into the world of Jumanji much like the characters in the new movie.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle tells the story of four students: Spencer (Alex Wolff), Bethany (Madison Iseman), Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain), and Martha (Morgan Turner) as they follow the same path as Alan Parrish. While in detention, these four characters discover an old video game system with a Jumanji cartridge already inserted into the console.
They turn on the system, choose their avatars, and are suddenly transported into the video game. Welcome to the jungle, gang! Read more...
You’ve probably already heard about the latest smartphone app craze: Pokémon GO. In Pokémon GO, players use their smartphones to capture legendary Pokémon via a geo-location based app.
Released on July 6th, 2016, Pokémon GO has created quite the stir.
What’s The Big Deal About Pokémon GO?
That’s the question everyone is asking. Why is this new Pokémon game so popular?
I have a few theories.
Pokémon GO plays on the nostalgia of those who grew up in the 90’s. Those who watched Pokémon growing up, want to try this new take on their favorite childhood cartoon.
Pokémon GO brings people together. The last couple of days have been crazy. Anywhere Pam and I walked, we ran into Pokémon GO players. Most weren’t alone. Pokémon GO players travel in packs and play together. Read more...
