Films to Come: 4 Star Movie Discussion Group
This unique group discusses the world of cinema and entertainment. Classic,
current and upcoming genre and genre-related films, TV, books and media
happenings are discussed. If it deals with entertainment, our dynamic Master
of Entertainment Moderator will cover it. So much more than films to come!
|Films to Come
After missing a month, the group came back with a bang! Our moderator had lists
prepared of upcoming releases and was ready to get into films. Results of the Golden
Globes were discussed, especially how they line up with the Oscar nominations coming
out Tuesday morning. Green Book was very well received. Aquaman, though visually
impressive, was deemed a bit long with too much reliance on special effects. Creed 2,
Mary Poppins Returns, Black Panther, Bumblebee all received positive praise from
various attendees. It seemed there was something for everyone in theaters recently.
Fun evening and a great start to a new year of films.
|Films to Come
Upcoming December films were discussed based on the moderator's infamous Maltin
List. Some of the anticipated films include Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Poppins Returns,
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Bumblebee (a Transformers prequel), Holmes &
Watson (a comedy version), Roma (directed by Alfonso Cuaron). Discussion was lively
and varied with people chiming in about what they'd seen and were looking forward to
seeing. A nice variety of big movies, smaller indie type films and TV were offered for
discussion. Festivities continued at the nearby Tom Sawyer Diner. Fun night as always.
