Dome Pondering Movie Review: Sing Street (2016)


What is it about? 

A boy in Dublin starts a band to impress a girl, but ends up finding out much more than he intended. 

Who is in it? 

Ferdia Walsh-Peelo - Conor

Aiden Gillen - Robert

Lucy Boynton - Raphina

Favorite Scene: 

Beginning to feel comfortable in himself, Conor confronts his bully and unleashes a few lines about creating, that is quite frankly, very awesome. 

Favorite Quote: 

"This is life, Conor. Drive it like you stole it." 

Review: 

I'm just going to say it, when the credits began to roll for Sing Street, I knew that I loved this film. It's now up there along with my absolute favorites. A random picking off of NetFlix, Sing Street really wasn't what I expected, but it delivered so much more in humor, acting, and most of all, a pretty kick ass moral on living life and chasing dreams. 

And getting back to the humor, the lines throughout the film were subtle, yet so incredible funny. Many of them were sneaky and witty, and if you you're humor lines up, you will find it very entertaining and funny. 

The acting was pretty good, and I thought Ferdia Walsh-Peelo really did a great job in the role, especially as the film picked up and we saw him in more scenes performing. 

And last but not least, the soundtrack is absolutely fantastic. Yes, the album is already in rotation and has been listened to a few dozen times on my Spotify. Especially "Drive it Like You stole it". Impossible not to get into that song. 

All in all, as I stated - big fan. Go watch it. 

Grade: 5/5

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
