Dome Pondering Movie Review: Frozen (2013)

What is it about? 

After not being able to control her powers, Elsa accidentally traps the kingdom in eternal winter. Her sister Anna, Kristoff, and a snowman named, Olaf, venture to find her and restore normalcy to the kingdom.

Who is in it?

Kristen Bell - Anna

Idina Menzel - Elsa

Jonathan Groff - Kristoff

Favorite Scene: 

I will admit, I'm not a fan of musicals and my characters breaking out into song and dance, but the song, "For the First Time in Forever" is pretty darn catchy. So, yes, I enjoyed that scene where the song was featured.

Favorite Quote: 

Anna: Are you all right?
Kristoff: Yeah. I have a thick skull.
Olaf: I don't have a skull. Or bones.

Review:

This is a movie you really have to let go off all things you've heard about Frozen. It can be really easy to get caught up in all of the hype that surrounds the film which could possibly ruin your viewing of it because of expectations. 

With that as a foreword, Frozen was a great film. Disney again hit a home run with this film as it provide a really simple plot, but one that  unique enough to really capture both adult and children audiences. And really, that's the measuring stick of all animated movies - does it appeal to everyone? Frozen does just that. After all, I still couldn't believe the slight drop of "foot size doesn't matter" by Anna in regards to mentioning her new fiance. 

And for those who aren't big musical fans like myself, as mentioned above, Frozen has it's moments of random song and dance, but the songs are so damn catchy. They really are. 

All in all, Frozen is a great movie, and quite possibly one of the best Disney films of all-time. Go see it. 

Grade: 3.75/5

Predictions and Wild Guesses for the 2021-22 NBA Season

For the first time in as long as I can remember, my New York Knicks have become a bit of a sanctuary for my sports fandom. Everything that has been the New York Yankees summer, and recent elimination, just begs for a proverbial turning of the page. The NBA season is that new chapter.  The Knicks season is a bit of a conundrum, as they've gotten much better, BUT, so did the rest of the Eastern Conference. I'm feeling confident, but I'm also anxious for more good basketball and hoping that last year wasn't some fluky gift to us Knicks for our patience prior to last season.  Whatevs...nonetheless, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/24/21

3 Up 1. Science and Research - Look, I'm not trying to get into any debates or start trouble with this selection. I'm just giving props to the men and women who continue to develop these vaccines - and now approved booster shots - that help fight off this terrible virus that has plagued over the past 18 months. Some countries still don't have an option when it comes to vaccines - we're onto booster shots, and can "choose". Perspective and privilege are needed sometimes.  2. Col. Wang Yaping - Give it up to Yaping who in six weeks will become the first Chinese woman to walk in space. OF course, she is receiving tons of backlash from the media - but hey, did we expect anything else? 

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.
