Dome Pondering Movie Review: The Comeback (2023)

What is it about? 

A new opportunity takes a family back to their hometown of Atlanta. The move conjures up conflicts and issues that are forced to be dealt with after years of avoidance. 

Who is in it? 

Taye Diggs - Jeff Murray 

Apryl Jones - Tisa Murray

Sherry Richards - Dianne Murray

Favorite Scene: 

Tisa comes home after her first day at work and gets into a fight with Jeff, continuing to blame him for where the couple currently is in the conflict. 

Favorite Quote:



Peacock pushed The Comeback for a few weeks every time I logged into the streaming app. Intrigued enough by Taye Diggs' next adventure after departing All-American, I decided to let this one rip for a watch while working out. 

Needless to say, the film is well....umm, alright. The Comeback has some moments where it is funny and then others where it's a bit head-scratching affirming my expectations going in. At times the film does hit on some reality in regards to familial conflicts and the strain it can place on a marriage. Especially when it boils down to in-laws. 

Taye Diggs, a seasoned actor, felt as out of place in this film as you can imagine, but also delivered in what felt like some heavy improv. Apryl Jones in the Tisa character really shined in this one, but overall, this was watchable. You won't remember it. 

Watch this one depending on your mood and commitment. 

Grade: 2/5

WWE Survivor Series 2023 Review: "Whaddya Wanna Talk About?"

Well, following that premium live event, in the words of Cody Rhodes... "whaddya wanna talk about?"  The obvious is there, right? CM Punk, somehow, makes a bid for another moment-of-the-year candidate for wrestling fans with another "return" - his second over the last four years. This one, back to the WWE, in what felt like the most improbable of opportunities. But as we've learned, WWE truly is where you "never say never".  You can go in so many directions on this one. But without going too far down a road that hasn't developed or we have some headlights on, it's quite clear that WWE is absolutely crushing the wrestling business right now, and adding anything - or anyone - to that continued record success is the mission. They. Are. Not. Settled.  Second, the unveil I thought was great. Just absolute pro wrestling at its peak. As soon as the guitar riff to "Cult of Personality" hit and the familiar graphics hit the screens, my immedia

Quick Ponder: Gratitude

  My sense of gratitude explodes within my heart when I cease expressing it through the tangible, but rather through, time and moments.  Happy Thanksgiving, all. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/26/23

3 Up 1. Hostages Released - It might not be an overwhelming consensus - as this topic is so polarizing that I doubt we come to such agreements. Regardless, having innocent individuals released is a plus in the situation. I wish we still didn't have innocent people dying, but that's a whole other topic.  1a. Cease Fire - Who knows how long this will last. But the fact there is an agreement in place while hostages are being released is a plus. Take it.  2. Thanksgiving - The older I get, the more this day has a deeper focus and a sense of gratitude. Please take a moment today to focus on that among all of the chaos of food, family, friends, and everything else.  3. CM Punk Return - How cool was that? CM Punk returns to the WWE at the Survivor Series. Never say never in that company.  3 Down 1. NBA Ethics Optics - From Miles Bridges to Josh Giddey, its been really difficult lately to trust the NBA's moral compass. I'm not throwing them under the bus as they've done the
