I am not much of a movie lover, but from time to time, I like to watch a good movie or movies. I got to watch Avengers: Infinity War early this year because Avengers: Endgame was going to come out. I wanted to be up to date and glean business principles or life lessons from the movie, if any. Well, I got a major one.
I enjoyed Avengers: Endgame, but to get the whole picture of the movie I had to go back to watch 7 other movies from the Avengers series that I had not watched before. The character development in the movies in the Avengers series is pretty phenomenal. This is a story for another day, but it is why I went back to watch the other movies I had missed.
A movie can be enjoyable, and a movie can be memorable. A good movie will be both, and memorable movies are usually successful. An enjoyable movie is forgettable, a memorable movie is never forgettable, for it makes you do time travel, replay the scenes and become the script writer.
Why was the Avengers: Endgame worth studying? Well, it made $775 Million in USA And $2.625 Billion Worldwide.
What made it memorable (aka successful)? The power of loss, especially the loss of a “loved one.” Loss will always touch your emotions and once it touches your emotions, it has scored with you.
You still remember the movie titled Titanic, don’t you?
Victories are forgettable, but you often never forget a loss, and you will keep asking from time to time, what if…?
Be a good story teller/ story writer….kill someone today!!!
