Games and movies and fun

Late last night we got together with some of the people that Ian works with and watched Primer. This is a very strange, interesting movie. It's about the dissolution of a friendship, and it's very technical and engineer-like. Time travel is involved which makes the story more difficult to follow... but that definitely make the movie something to talk about. This is a movie that should be seen without knowing too much about it, that needs to be seen more than once, and that should be researched in between viewings. If you like this sort of thing, you'll love love love this movie. Ian and I both loved it, as do the people he works with. In fact, they're viewing it again tonight.

We didn't watch join them because we went over to our friend's house to play games instead. There were 14 - aka tons!!! - of people there! We ended up splitting up into different game-playing groups, and I played Taboo and Bohnanza, which I've played before. Many of the people there were more casual board-game players who prefer to play games like Taboo and Cranium. Those are fun games, all right, but we also like to play more complex, less casual boardgames. It's hard to get so many people wanting to play those games, though. Maybe another time.

I'll play! All my board game peeps have baby peeps. The babies are cute and all but not so conducive to brain games :(
