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

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …

Thoughts on 2018 State of the Union Address

Heading into this State of the Union address, I strongly believed this was President Trump's opportunity to somehow clear the air and change slow the growing perspective he's been claiming as "fake news". For a guy whose strength in politics has been refuting claims, attacking others, tweeting without control, and giving informal and fiery speeches in the form of rallies, having a blank canvas to unite, to control the perspective, and to give his mission is indeed foreign. 
Last night was his chance. And in my opinion, it was the "must win" in the political spectrum, especially considering the midterm election season we are upon. 
Again, im not a "must win" kind of person, but his message tonight is just that in the political spectrum. Has to deliver. Has to. — Dome Pondering (@DomePondering) January 30, 2018
Overall, I thought the President did well. I'm being fair and just. And as a former college debater and an absolute junkie for rhetoric…
