Dome Pondering Movie Review: Deadpool (2016)

What is it about? 
A mercenary stricken with cancer, turns to an alternative rogue experiment that leaves him with the special powers of accelerated healing powers, thus adopting the alter ego of Deadpool. 

Who is in it?

Ryan Reynolds - Deadpool

Morena Baccarin - Vanessa

Ed Skrein - Ajax

TJ Miller - Weasel

Favorite Scene: 

While chasing fighting off bad guys, Deadpool is left with only 12 bullets to fight off the entire brigade. He begins an interesting and humorous way of counting off the bullets used while escaping the situation. The visual of the bullets are also very cool. 

Favorite Quote: 

Deadpool: LOOK! Im a teenage girl, I'd rather be anywhere than here! I'm all about long sullen silences, followed by mean comments, followed by more silence! So what's it gonna be, long sullen silence, or mean comment? Go on, take your pick.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead: ...You got me in a box here.
Deadpool: AH-HAA!

Review: 

Deadpool is absolutely fantastic. Just a fun, enjoyable, entertaining watch that blends many elements of humor, enticing visuals, and the unique breaking of the fourth wall in several instances. Again, I cannot say enough about how engaged you will be as a viewer of Deadpool. 

Of course, there is the hot topic of a "Super Hero" movie being Rated R. I for one will say that I don't necessarily think most films need to be that of an R-rating. It works for Deadpool, and part of that element adds to the specialty of the film. 

Ryan Reynolds really was fantastic in the role, a zone of being the overly sarcastic and humorous inidivudal he often pulls off so well. Again, my favorite part of this film is in fact the visual and art of storytelling that is the plot as it bounces from past to present. So well done. 

All in all, Deadpool is a very good watch. Certainly very recommended 

Grade: 4.5/5

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, …

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.
