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

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Kansas City Royals)

The Kansas City Royals' City Connect uniforms were a design that I wholeheartedly looked forward to. The Royals' current uniforms and aesthetics are some of the best in baseball, and for a city like Kansas City, it just feels like there was enough room creatively to do something historically enlightening (more so something many do not already know about the city), or a simple approach that builds off of the current design.  To be honest, it may sound simple, but the use of "blue" by the Royals is fantastic.  What we got is a concept that continued the awesome blue approach, with a design concept that is just as cool as their everyday threads. However, where I feel disappointed is the safe approach to this. I would have loved to see them lean into the rich history of the Negro Leagues that is Kansas City - a team (and city) able to do so more than others. That could have been really cool, enriching, meaningful, and somewhat different from the norm - maybe even an ode t

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Wrestlemania 38 (Saturday) Review: "Just Fun"

Well, here we are, it's Wrestlemania and it's that time of the year for yours truly to jump back into the WWE product. I'll be completely transparent for those of you new to this site, and for consistent followers,  it's become a theme here, but I've only been committing to WWE programming for their pay per...errr, premium live events for the past 10 months (or so). I simply can't bear to be engaged with Raw and Smackdown. The weekly programming I find dreadful.  But again, this is Wrestlemania, baby! Any wrestling fan, regardless of personal choice or preference of their wrestling entertainment, tunes into it.  Despite my wary allegiance to the "E" these days, dare I say, I enjoyed Wrestlemania Saturday! I really did. Was it overly memorable? To be honest, no. However, the night felt fun, and quite frankly, that hasn't been an emotion I would equate with the WWE's programming in a very long time. In fact, it's the main reason I've ceas

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
