Play With Your Heart, Not Your Head

I was going to do a review on Jerry Maguire, but the clip below is one of the main messages I took away from it.

In the clip below Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) is a sports agent trying to get his client/NFL wide receiver, Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.), the bigger, longer, contract Rod is looking for and all the “quan” that comes with it.  After lots of feeding Ron’s ego throughout the movie, he finally bluntly tells Rod the truth in this clip.  That truth is that off the field Ron plays with heart (friends/children/family/wife).  On the field is a different story.

What areas are you not playing with heart?  Is it career?  Is it your love life?  Do what you must do to play life full out because giving 100% is badass.

Nightcrawler (Movie) Review 150 150 admin

Nightcrawler (Movie) Review

I watched the movie Nightcrawler today, and I do have a confession – throughout the first part of the movie I was waiting on the main character Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhall) to morph into the fictional superhero Nightcrawler associated with X-men.  So….this didn’t happen, but the movie was ?.  What a movie!  Rented it through Amazon Prime and watched it on the Amazon Firestick.  I also learned about the profession of night crawling.   It’s an actual thing.

Very dark, but with a great story line and Jake Gyllenhall really did a fantastic job acting.  Very crisp and direct.  This is my first movie review on here because frankly, I don’t watch too many movies.   I actually have “watch 5 movies” as a goal on my quarterly plans.

This was a movie for those who place a high value on intelligence.  There’s quite a few Louis Bloom moments that make you go “damn!”.
