Reel Leadership is taking you into a new universe today. We’re bringing you into the Spider-Verse. Yes, the Spider-Verse.
What is the Spider-Verse? The Spider-Verse was originally a 2014 Marvel comic book storyline exploring alternate versions of Spider-Man being attacked by the villain Morlun. This isn’t the Spider-Verse we’re going to explore.
Instead, Sony Pictures Animation and Columbia Pictures recently released the new animated movie Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. This movie explores the origin of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and the origins of other Spider-People.
Into The Spider-Verse introduces you to various versions of Spider-Man. You will meet: Read more...
Pam and I were able to view a movie we’d missed in the theater but had desired to see. Having watched the Harry Potter movies and enjoying them, we were excited for the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Two years after its 2016 release, we made that desire a reality.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was directed by David Yates. J.K. Rowling was the writer. With this combination, the movie had to be good!
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them tells the story of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as he makes his way to the United States from London. Upon arriving in an unfamiliar land, he loses one of his magical creatures. This causes him all kinds of troubles… Read more...
Kin tells the story of Elijah Solinski (Myles Truitt), his ex-con brother Jimmy Solinski (Jack Reynor), and former stripper Milly (Zoe Kravitz). Eli (what Elijah goes by in Kin) and Jimmy are fleeing Taylor Balik (James Franco), a crime lord who Jimmy owes $60,000.
Also starring in Kin is Dennis Quaid as Hal Solinski, Jimmy’s father and Elijah’s stepdad. He plays a minor part in the movie and the movie largely focuses on the two brothers.
Toss in an alien weapon and a major road trip and you’ve got Kin. A fun sci-fi/action movie that will keep you guessing.
Kin starts off slow. Builds to a major crescendo. And leaves the audience with more questions than answers.
This isn’t necessarily bad. Kin was a movie I enjoyed. Pam found Kin so-so but agrees with me that there are plenty of leadership lessons in Kin.
