    The one that Paul Giamatti has been nominated Best Actor for: The Holdovers. Definitely a feel-good movie: a cross between A Christmas Carol and Mr. Holland's Opus. He did give a very good performance, although my son said that he was just being Paul Giamatti. Not sure that's a fair assessment.

    The other one, Saltburn, is very ...well, interesting. I did follow it to the end. Themes of British social standing, obsession and deception with a little bit of erotica thrown in.
    did we talk about Saltburn already on this forum? I canít remember since Iíve been talking about on other forums. I forget where my brilliant words have landed, ha ha.

    Saltburn was sure a strange one!

    I don’t think I watched the film but I can’t remember for sure. Now it’s in a position in streaming where I have to pay for it. I do love The Detectorists, just top-notch.

    Has anyone begun watching "Monsieur Spade," on Prime or Acorn? Stars Clive Owen with some French subtitles. I find it mesmerizing. Such good acting, beautiful setting and the soundtrack/score is wonderful. Quite noir, in the style of The Maltese Falcon. I think Owen honors Bogey in his characterization of Sam Spade.

    There are a lot of changes back to the past in the timeline as the series goes along. I can only watch one episode at a time, no bingeing on this. It takes some thought. Lots of moving pieces. But I find it so different and intriguing.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    I own the DVDs and have watched the 3 seasons a few times. They can still put a smile on my face.

    I love Detectorists. Especially Sheila.

    I like watching it when I'm having a tough time...it always pulls me out of it.

    Having read Nights in Rodanthe, I just finished watching the movie. Book is DEFINITELY better than the movie. I didn't like how they had changed the story line overall. Liked the last 30-45 minutes of it and glad I watched it, but definitely glad I read the book first.
