Dome Pondering Movie Review: Sing Street (2016)


What is it about? 

A boy in Dublin starts a band to impress a girl, but ends up finding out much more than he intended. 

Who is in it? 

Ferdia Walsh-Peelo - Conor

Aiden Gillen - Robert

Lucy Boynton - Raphina

Favorite Scene: 

Beginning to feel comfortable in himself, Conor confronts his bully and unleashes a few lines about creating, that is quite frankly, very awesome. 

Favorite Quote: 

"This is life, Conor. Drive it like you stole it." 

Review: 

I'm just going to say it, when the credits began to roll for Sing Street, I knew that I loved this film. It's now up there along with my absolute favorites. A random picking off of NetFlix, Sing Street really wasn't what I expected, but it delivered so much more in humor, acting, and most of all, a pretty kick ass moral on living life and chasing dreams. 

And getting back to the humor, the lines throughout the film were subtle, yet so incredible funny. Many of them were sneaky and witty, and if you you're humor lines up, you will find it very entertaining and funny. 

The acting was pretty good, and I thought Ferdia Walsh-Peelo really did a great job in the role, especially as the film picked up and we saw him in more scenes performing. 

And last but not least, the soundtrack is absolutely fantastic. Yes, the album is already in rotation and has been listened to a few dozen times on my Spotify. Especially "Drive it Like You stole it". Impossible not to get into that song. 

All in all, as I stated - big fan. Go watch it. 

Grade: 5/5

One More Year of Possible Frustration. A Future of Guaranteed Idiocy.

One Year.

After all the drama, after all of the controversy, it now comes down to one year for Isiah Thomas to turn around the mess that he created. Isiah has one year to improve the group of misfits that he has put together for an NBA roster.

One Year.

Good luck Isiah.

The fact of the matter is that the Knicks are a mess. They have become arguably the most embarassing franchise in sports. A collection of high-priced players with no resumes of winning else where combined with a lack of leadership on the coaching, front office and ownership level is a combustible formula for any sports organization. It's sad. It's sad to see an organization that is used to winning and has a history of greatness and class reduced to nothing. Guys such as Patrick Ewing, Clyde Frazier and Willis Reed all who have worn that illustrious blue and Orange "New York" across their chests with pride and dignity are now an afterthought. Madison Square Garden - the mecca of basketball, and most hi…

3 Up
1. Women's March - I'm happy to see this movement wasn't just a reactionary thing to last year's happenings, but one that continues to move forward. It's a continue reminder that the fight for equality for us all is still ongoing. 
2. Aly Raisman - Raisman stood up land et the world know what was done to her and how corrupt USA gymnastics currently is. She really left it all out there, and it was quite eyebrow raising. It was also just as sickening to hear what has been going on, and what has been covered up. 
3. Tom Brady and the Patriots - Give the man his due. Brady is 40 years old and still winning. I don't care for the Super Bowl all that much anymore, but I recognize and respect the greatness. It's a once-in-a-generation deal, and I appreciate it. 
3 Down
1. Government Shutdown - Ugh. Come on...I don't care whose fault it is, this is a disaster. 
2. Deportation of Jorge Garcia - Look, I'm going to say something I'm sure will divide tho…

The Pondering 10 - All-Time Favorite Championship Belts

With the WWE finally moving on from the ridiculousness that was the appearance of the WWE championship (Really, they kept a spinning title for eight years), and of course the unveiling the look of the title, it got the wheels turning on the best looks for championship belts. From pro wrestling, boxing (although, don't expect to see any on this list as they are usually ugly), and mixed martial arts, there are plenty of different models, types, and appearances that come with them. The following Pondering 10 list is my favorite all-time championship belts.
