I didn't like Nomadland, and my wife and daughter flat out hated it.

If I wanted to watch a documentary about nomadic people, I'd actually watch a documentary. Not one with rich Hollywood actress hanging out with nomads making a fake story.

Just my opinion, I know it won a gaggle of Oscars and critics loved it and presumably some non-critics did too so I'm probably in the minority.

And I should say, I'm not someone who needs lots of action or positivity to enjoy a show or movie. I just finished Mare of Easttown, which was pretty depressing, and loved it.

This is as good of a blurb promoting Nomadland as anything they have on the poster. I will see any film Space didn't like and his wife and daughter hates.

Nomadland was a snoozer - my wife loved it but I felt it just dragged.

Promising Young Woman and Sound of Metal were probably my favorite movies of 2020.

+1 for Promising Young Woman

I watch a lot of movies (still have Netflix DVD service two at a time, plus three streaming companies) and that was one of my favorites.

I got some Xrays back around the start of COVID and was also given them on a CD but I was fine with it because I remain consumptive of physical media.
