I haven't seen either of those, but I have the book on which The Danish Girl is based.

I'd say watch them, but I know there's no point if you're not interested.

Oh, but I am interested. Like I said, Eddie Redmayne is reason enough for me. It's a matter of being in the right "mood."

These are popcorn movies. And movies that aren't popcorn movies are movies that I tend to need a bit of "working up" to be able to handle/decide to watch. So they're not weeknight movies. And my weekends, of late, have been about recuperation and the bare minimum of household maintenance.

So it just hasn't happened yet. But it will. They're not movies I never plan to watch. Quite the opposite. It's just not simple, that's all.

I get it, they're not exactly movies you'd watch to cheer up.

Pretty much. I will watch them, but I haven't had the chance yet.

Speaking of movies unlikely to cheer anyone up... are you planning on watching the new Blade Runner?

I already have. I didn’t love the first one, but I still wanted to watch this. I liked it just fine, but it drags on a bit (I zoned out for a while in the middle).

It's good to have a non-Quebec expression, though. It's hard to find an unbiased opinion over here.

He's on quite the roll though, so they have every right to be positive.

It's not done as well as expected at the Box Office though, I guess it didn't appeal to as many people as they thought.

It's a genre movie. And, you know, not one with superheroes in it. Those never have predictable results. Even if with the legacy aspect taken into account.

and even Avatar won’t take 35 years to release a sequel.

Watching Wonder Woman for the fifth time.

That's very thematic of you all.

I'm watching the HBO documentary on Spielberg. So good.

I'll have to look that up, sounds like something I'd be interested to see.

The director/creator is Susan Lacy, if that helps you track it down. It's a nice retrospective of his life/career. As many reviewers have pointed out, it skips over the not-so-successful part of his career, but I enjoyed hearing what his collaborators had to say.

I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that Schindler's List gets a good chunk of the attention, but I loved hearing Liam Neeson talk about how he didn't appreciate how specific Spielberg was in his direction but stuck it out... and he evidently feels this was one of the best experiences he had in the end.

Also, Francis Ford Coppola apparently feels that what made Spielberg succesful, aka his "ability to know what the audience wants," is something you're born with. To me, that says more about Coppola than it does Spielberg, but whatever.

It's a good watch.
