When I awoke today, I knew that somewhere in the course of this day, the viewing of a movie would take place. Originally, I was deciding between two films with lots of star power: American Gangster (Denzel Washington/Russell Crowe), or Lions for Lambs (Tom Cruise/Meryl Streep/Robert Redford). But when I logged onto Yahoo! to obtain the showing times, I was greeted by a front page telling me that both critical and fan reaction to LFL was very negative. Thus I settled on American Gangster, the preview for which I'd seen in just about every movie I've watched since moving to New Hampshire. The film did not disappoint; for the first time in a while, I never checked my watch to see how much of the movie was left. After returning home, I watched the Boston College @ New Hampshire hockey game; for the first time in the three games I've watched, UNH was able to win on its home ice. Cornell swept Yale and Brown on the road this weekend, providing some momentum prior to Lynah East in six days' time.
Work tomorrow, but at least Monday is an off day, due to the observation of Veterans' Day. I might go see Lions for Lambs then.
