Dome Pondering Movie Review: Zootopia (2016)

What is it about?

A rookie bunny cop and perceived con-artist fox end up working together to uncover  conspiracy and preserve the right of an existence where all animals live together. 

Who is in it?

Ginnifer Goodwinn - Judy Hopps

Jason Bateman - Nick Wilde

Favorite Scene:

After getting a lead on a license plate, both Judy and Nick go to run the plates only to run into sloths who work in administration. The encounter is rather hilarious, and yes, slooooooooow. 

Favorite Quote:

"Life's a little bit messy. We all make mistakes. No matter what type of animal you are, change starts with you."

Review:

For some reason, I am a sucker for these films. Where things that aren't people, become people, and offer significant life lessons for those of us who are people. Zootopia provides that, plus more. 

The film has a nice plot that is fun for kids, and lends it self to adults on how we handle stereotypes, living among others who are different, and dealing with barriers that keep us from being who we truly are, or want to be. 

Zootopia is a nice film that is worth the 90 minute run time. If you have some time, it'll provide some entertainment, and of course, help spark a light bulb or two. 

Grade: 3/5

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 …

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. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable. 
2. Cam Newton - The comment was so unnecessary.…
