I watched Quartet on Netflix. Starring Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, and Michael Gambon, it's your standard formulaic "Let's put on a show to save [x]!" It's set at a retirement home for performers and they need to sell out their annual show for Verdi's birthday to keep the home open. I thought it was well done but fairly trite. I liked that it focused on seniors and showed them as full, developed people who still have thoughts and feelings. Perfect for watching with the in-laws.

We saw The Wandering Earth. It is an epic space opera in Chinese with subtitles. I had written off getting to see it in a theater out here in the boondocks but one cinema had it for a week. The visuals were stunning. I totally do not mind subtitles but I kept getting caught up in the scenes involving the planets and missing lines. I just saw something about it being on Netflix so I'll happily watch it again. There are so many sci fi and adventure movie tropes but I did get into the characters eventually. Do not overthink the physics. See it in a theater or on a big screen if you can.
