Watched "Sully" this weekend. I was thinking it might be a bit boring, since I thought it was obvious what had happened and not much to tell about it. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but apparently the FAA(?) questioned Sully's actions and thought he could have made it back to an airport, without landing in the river and losing a plane. It was interesting. I think Sully, himself, could have played the part, although Hanks did okay.
We went to see Rogue One and I confess I was the only one who didn't like it. It was just one big blast blowing things up after another. I was so bored that I dozed off. DH woke me up for the last 30-45 minutes which was somewhat better than the beginning. I am now ducking for cover as the Force tells me that light sabers are being drawn against me.
After having seen the Golden Globes last night, I have a list of them that I'm interested in:
Manchester by the Sea
Florence Foster Jenkins
Fences (I've never seen a theatrical production, I'm ashamed to say)
People vs OJ Simpson
The Night Manager
"Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it--every, every minute?" Emily Webb, Our Town
I purposely skipped Florence Foster Jenkins, it did not sond all that great to me.
The film Elle is weird as hell. Isabelle Huppert is strong, though. i will say that it held my attention all the way through. But when I relayed the plot to DH I couldn't remember all of the side stories. Everyone in that film had a secret, including the baby.
Manchester by the Sea is the best film I've seen in years, but Moonlight (on all critics top list) is super strong.
Lala land was ok. Lion was ok, and predictible, but I liked it because I like anything about India.

I figured that the FAA conflict was higely blown up, if it actually happened at all. At the end with the room full of bureaucrats and industry personnel,and the big reveal about the data in front of all--totally bogus, and a little insulting to movie going audiences.
There might be a dramatic film to make about this crash landscape ng on the Hudson, but this was not it.
Got to see Lucy on tv tonight. Really enjoyed it as it was one that I kind of wished I had seen at the theater.
