Due to Grandpa’s birthday, I can’t start the WatchAlong until 5pm this week. By the way, my parents take this whole thing SO SERIOUSLY that they were initially trying to figure out a way to schedule Grandpa’s birthday around the watchalong. To which I said “NO! This is more important and DCIB will understand!” You do, right?
5pm WatchAlong! Which either means I pick a shorter movie so we still end at roughly the same time, or a longer movie because people who usually are hurried and late will be on time, or make no changes at all. It’s a total puzzle is what I am saying.
Here are some options:
Sita Sings the Blues
Very interesting animated film intercutting the makers’ personal story of being dumped by her boyfriend after he moved to India with the story of the Ramayana from the perspective of Sita. It’s fun, it’s education, and it’s slightly less than an hour and a half. Oh, and the filmmaker waved all rights to her work so it’s available literally everywhere.
It’s totally fun and totally ridiculous and totally delightful. A man is killed and comes back as a fly to protect his girlfriend, who makes him little fly armor and fly weapons. So fun! So Great! 2 hour and a half hours, and it’s only available for rent on googleply and youtube.
Classic Rajinikanth ridiculous over the top fun, really irresistible, and so great to make fun of while you watch it. Once again, only available for rent on youtube and googleplay.
As you can see, I am feeling kind of silly this week. And what could be sillier than this Tiger-Hrithik action love story? On Amazon Prime.
Okay, now you tell me what you want to watch, and if you are more or less available this week thanks to the time shift!
