Dome Pondering Movie Review: Enough Said (2013)

What is it about? 

A recent divorcee begins the healing process by dating a man who truly understands her, just to learn that he is the ex-husband of her new friend. 

Who is in it? 

Julia Louis-Dreyfus - Eva

James Gandolfini - Albert

Favorite Scene: 

Eva and Albert's first date - which is filled with one liners and smart, yet, embarrassingly hilarious quips - is pretty entertaining.

Favorite Quote: 

Eva: I could not believe what I was watching! No brains, and the fake cheekbones, and the fake boobs. Do you like fake boobs?
Albert: ...No. No, I like real boobs.
Eva: Yeah - I got real boobs.
Albert: ...That's workin' out for us then. 

Review: 

Enough Said is a pretty quirky movie with an very interesting plot. The dynamic of the plot is a good one surrounded by a character's torn feelings of not only being between her new friend/client and her ex-husband, who also happens to be her new boyfriend. However, the film also does a nice and subtle job of lending to the idea of appreciating relationships for the simpler things, such as the mystery of learning about another person, and not focusing on the little nitpicks in differences we seek. 

Another tidbit was the reality of a divorcee set to lose her child to college, and struggling with the though of having an empty nest. 

Despite the real-life scenarions this film tackles, what truly makes Enough Said so great is the acting. It's tough to beat Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandofini. Both are excellent in this picture. 

All in all, Enough Said is a decent watch, especially at its 93 minute runtime. 

Grade: 3/5

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.

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

Today, and Someday

Today,  I push to leave on time, to place my ambition on rewind,  to conquer a list,  to feed the drive, to escape amiss Someday,  I'll work to return home soon, with purpose in tune,  to pursue the extent,  to feed my heart, for Today, I repent. 

Royal Rumble 2022 Review: "Struggles of the Current Product Came Glaring Through the Cracks"

The Royal Rumble is easily my favorite wrestling event of the year - solely for the sake of the match, the aura of the pageantry, and all of the drama that comes with it. Nothing is like that buzzer going off, the surprise entrant, and that possible encounter we've been waiting for, or we thought would never happen. It's pro wrestling's All-Star Game in a nutshell.   The event carries so much nostalgia for this wrestling fan, that no matter how bad I think the WWE product currently is - and believe me, I'm no longer avidly watching it - I will still plan my weekend around the event. Unfortunately, this year's Rumble provided that nostalgia, but the sheer struggles of the current product - again, at least to and for this fan - came glaring through the cracks.  Overall, I found the event to be fun. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns was awesome. Mickie James getting her flowers was super cool, you can't replicate that big fight feel of Lashley vs. Lesnar, and of course
