the what I did today post

To celebrate President's [Presidents? Presidents'?] Day, we gathered at Carole's apartment to watch a four-hour Indian movie called Lagaan. Rachel picked up food from Cedar's and Carole made multi-fruit lassis. We had to make a run for caffeine at the intervention. I can't really say that the movie was good, though Bryan tried to convince us to be nicer to it.

However, I'm not complaining--watching a movie musical about villagers who play cricket to avoid excessive taxes was an entertaining way to spend an overcast afternoon.


I really wanted to see Lagaan and your lukewarm review does not change my mind. Wasn't there also singing and weird fantasy, in the style of Bollywood?

(ps: Presidents' Day, I would think, and do you mean "intermission?")
I guess it was entertaining. It was just incredibly predictable and not at all complicated.

There were a few musical numbers with dancing and at least once scene when a character has a fantasty. The movie might qualify as Bollywood, but I don't know the specific criteria.

Yes, I think intermission is what I meant, but a caffeine intervention is kind of funny.
