Dome Pondering Movie Review: Megamind (2010)

Who is in it?

The usual villain, Megamind, defeats his long-time rival and nemesis in Metro Man, and loses the purpose for his life. 

Who is in it? 

Will Ferrel - Megamind

Tina Fey - Roxanne Richie

Jonah Hill - Hal Stewart/Titan

Brad Pitt - Metro Man

Favorite Scene: 

After creating Titan, Megamind cruises the streets looking for a good ol' fashioned duel between good and evil, except, he eventually finds the newly created Titan inside his apartment playing video games. 

Favorite Quote: 

"Funny. I guess destiny isn't the path chosen for us, but the path we chose for ourselves."

"Ow, my big blue head!"

Review: 

Megamind is a great film. It really is. It is just another film among the many by Dreamworks that is well written, well put together, stocked with great talent on voice-overs, very funny, and simply highly entertaining.  

The film has characters that are very engaging, funny, and connects very well with the viewer. The story of good vs. evil, and the overall moral of finding the good within others add to the depth of the story. And the icing on the cake is the killer soundtrack included. 

Megamind is a great film that is very much recommended by everyone. You can't go wrong with such a quality movie for the 90 minute run time. 

Grade: 4/5

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch

Trump Conviction: Hard to Describe This Time in History

You just have to shake your head at the reality of the situation.  A former President of the United States was just convicted - on several counts - of a crime.  It's the kind of thing, even in a post-Trump Presidency, where even strange things seem normalized, going too far is desensitized, and you ultimately laugh hysterically at the uber strangeness to suppress the sadness, that even this - THIS! - is still attention-grabbing.  It's no secret if you follow this site - I'm no Trump supporter. I understand why voters elected him in 2016 and struggle to understand why so many stay with him through it all for a 2024 campaign.  We've reach a new level where American voters will outright neglect crimes, and vote to elect a convicted felon as President of the United States. It's quite hard to describe this time in history.  Yet, here we are.  Several other quick thoughts:  I still wonder whether Trump wins or loses, how does the Republican party move on after Trump? I do
