Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Dune Part 2

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.

It’s been two and a half years since Frank Herbert’s Dune Part 1 was released in theaters to overwhelming critical acclaim. Now, we’re ready to see and learn the leadership lessons in Dune Part 2. 

Dune Part 2 continues where the first Dune movie left off. Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) is back. He’s struggling to acclimate to the Fremen culture, which is different from the culture he was brought up in. He’s also dealing with the weight and challenge of the Lisan al Gaib prophecy proclaimed over him.

Getting into Dune Part 2 was difficult for me. I watched the first movie years ago. I should have rewatched the prequel before stepping into this movie. There would have been less confusion and maybe even more enjoyment from the film.

Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Spider-Man: Far From Home

A Reel Leadership Article

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.
