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

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
