Dome Pondering Movie Review: Infinitely Polar Bear (2014)

What is it about? 

A father dealing with bi-polar disorder attempts to win over his wife and kids by taking on the responsibility of taking care of his kids while she attends graduate school in New York. 

Who is in it? 

Mark Ruffalo - Cam Stuart

Zoe Saldana - Maggie Stuart

Imogene Wolodarsky - Amelia Stuart

Ashley Aufderheide - Faith Stuart

Favorite Scene: 

Maggie and Amelia finally bring their friends back to the apartment. While they were nervous at first, it ended up being a good time with the kids playing roulette, learning how to make crapes, and playing with machetes. 

Favorite Quote: 

"They kicked me out of Harvard because the next semester they knew I was delusional because I registered for 75 courses."

Review: 

Infinitely Polar Bear was surprisingly good. What was an impulse watch, actually turned into an entertaining 88 minutes, and really, wish for more. After all, besides 13 Going on 30, isn't Mark Ruffalo usually pretty good in everything? 

And thus he was in this film as well playing the manic depressive Cam Stuart in a role that sheds some humor on the issue, all while letting you into the lives of those who deal with loved ones who suffer from the disease. Ruffalo was fantastic and is very much worth the watch because of his role. Also, so are the kids who were surprising as well. 

Another positive are the subtle 

All in all, this film was enjoyable, and very much worth the short run time. 

Grade: 4/5

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/15/17

3 Up
1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Damn, I Love This Team

Damn. I love this team. 
I don't know what it is, or what spurred this immediate attachment in Spring Training, but I just do. Maybe it was the idea of hope and all of the wonders and excitement it brings. You know, when your squad finally ditches the old expensive brigade and gives the keys to the prospects we've been hearing about. 
Maybe that was it. 
Or, maybe it was the excitement produced by Gary Sanchez just the year before. And the near-miss of the playoffs the team teased the year prior. 
Or...maybe it was just the idea of dancing around the word "rebuilding" and having no (not low) expectations for the 2017 season. Quite frankly, we were playing with house cards, and that's a fun position to be in as a fan. 
Of course, Judge happened (Sooooooo much fun). And it happened 52 times - really 53 if we count that one home run that didn't get counted and was ruled a triple. But whose counting?
