    Chesney, if you like the Detectorists look for Vicious. It often is on PBS. High comedy of 2 aging Queens, various friends/relatives and the downward spiral the main 2 only occasionally allow themselves to look at as they age. High camp. I think they got to 3 short seasons. Others more on the drama side I found on PBS were Indian Summers with seriously great acting just before the fall of the Raj so 1930s-1940s. Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries is a gift from the Aussies set in Melbourne between the wars. Guys will love Phrynne Fisher. It seems like last year everything I watched was CBS or PBS. If you are a reader, the newest Preston & Childs novel starring FBI Special Agent A.O.X. Pendergast downloads in time for our January cruise. Pendergast is a weird duck to say the least. He is paid a penny a year because he must be paid something. He works alone but that just means no 2nd FBI agent. He chooses his own cases, drives or is driven in a Bentley and bits of the paranormal tend to slide into many of his stories. Start with Relic I think. Some need to be in order and others it doesn't matter. Definitely not your regular cops and robbers plots. And Peter, join a club. January is vacation for us then back up to the cold so I can do taxes and 3 American Legions and 2 VFWs in very short drives. I am planning to hit the AM legions first where they recognize both his boots on the ground in Vietnam and my Intel support for Grenada 3000 miles away. Do figure out a safe way home if you have 1 too many.

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    If you haven't already, try " The Diving Bell and the Butterfly". We saw this movie some years back in the Rialto Cinema.
    The Rialto plays mostly European movies, movies with stories. And shies away from that Hollywood big bang blockbuster bullshit, which suits me.
    I haven't been there for a while now.. it is about time I rattled my dags and made the effort.

    There is another one along the same lines that I liked called: Your Not You
    (Classical pianist who has been diagnosed with ALS and the brash college student who becomes her caregiver)

So far, it has a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 55/100.

    I will be seeing this with the Cinema Society in early January and will post here my review.

    If you haven't seen "The Intouchables" (French with English subtitles), available on Amazon, I would recommend it. (KLD)
    Thanks for the favourable reference of "The Intouchables".

    I have booked "The Intouchables" and "Samba" also "The Big Sick"from the library for my next movie enjoyment. Subtitles?? with good movies they are secondary.
    I look forward to your comparison KLD.

    "Kills on Wheels", I ran into this at the library. Kind of interesting.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

    We have a thread in the Movies & Music forum on films related to SCI that you might want to check out if those are your interests:

    Went to see "Vice" yesterday, and loved it. Christian Bale was perfect as Dick Cheney.
