Dome Pondering Movie Review: In A World...(2013)

What is it about?

A woman struggling with her career eventually gets her big break and finds herself competing in the movie trailer voice-over industry with her legendary father and his protege.

Who is in it? 

Lake Bell - Carol

Fred Melamed - Sam

Michaela Watkins - Dani

Ken Marino - Gustav

Favorite Scene: 

Louis takes Carol on a walk to let her know he wants to be her voice over coach and produce her pitch for the big gig, and at the same time let her know of his feelings for her. After she starts walking away when she understands her father is also vying for the same pitch, Louis does an ADHD spaz out to get her attention. 

Favorite Quote: 

"How does everybody know about that? I don't understand."
"The Russian community is really tight."

Review: 

I've never heard of In a World, but I'm glad I had an opportunity to watch it. The film is definitely one of the many, many, many independent gems that are out here which never get any publicity or acknowledgement. Surrounded by a theme of the voice-over industry, the film's plot is rather simple, but definitely is given it's due for the comedic dry humor that fills the film. 

The acting is rather superb, especially Lake Bell. Also, the random sightings of Eva Longoria, Cameron Diaz, and Nick Offerman in the role of Heners is entertaining. Especially Offerman without a mustache, which is just so weird. 

All in all, In a World is a decent watch that is thoroughly entertaining, especially for a 90-minute run time. 

Grade: 3/5

The Pondering 10 – All-Time Animated Cartoons

Every individual enjoyed cartoons as a child. While today’s youth may not have many options, or even care for cartoons, for generations in the past, cartoons provided many hours of laughter, memories, and overall entertainment. In the following Pondering 10 list, yours truly will name my all-time favorite cartoons. This list is by far the hardest list compiled hear on the DP due to the enormous amount of cartoons that were great, as well as putting together a profound and honest list based on quality and interest. In doing so, I have left out such cartoons such as Family Guy and King of The Hill, as these are more connected to the present time rather than childhood memories. Also, please keep in mind, the following cartoons have must be noted as an honorable mention: Duck Tales, Goof Troop, The Jetsons, Thundercats, Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin, Gargoyles, Batman, Pinky and the Brain, Speed Racer, Doug, Garfield, Bobby’s World, Sonic The Hedgehog, Ghostbusters, Tailspin, Captain Planet, …

True Tales From Parks and Recreation - Public Bait and Switch?

Note: I work for a park slowly in continuing development in Manhattan that is five miles along the waterfront of the Hudson River. As a Public Programs Coordinator, yours truly handles anything public related in regards to permitting (athletic facilities, film shoots, photo shoots, weddings, and other small gatherings), and of course, dealing with any questions or inquiries from the public. The following series will present stories, e-mails, phone calls, conversations, interactions, and sights I've seen from the people of New York City in regards to a public park. And yes, these are all real! And are all true!
Welcome to another little snippet of Parks and Recreation.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/23/18

3 Up

1. Eluide Kipchoge - I'm always impressed with any running feat. But come on! This dude just broke the World record for not just any running feat - for a freakin marathon! He finished the Berlin Marathon in 2 hours 1 Minute and 39 seconds!! Kipchoge ran his first 10 kilometers in 29:21! That's just insane. So insane.

2. John Legend - Props this dude for completing the EGOT, and of course, becoming the first black person to do so. That is some big time, historical, accomplishment-stuff.

3. Tiger Woods - Do I care about golf? Not really. Not even when Woods was in his prime. Yet, who doesn't love a great comeback sports story? I'm still not OK with how he treated his ex-wife, but I'm always up for a redemption story. I do like seeing people rebound.

3 Down

1. Florence Death Toll - With the numbers rising as the days go by, it's a shame to see the aftermath of such a storm in the Carolinas. Here is to hoping we can get help to the region sufficiently.

2. Kavan…
