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
The hot ticket was discussion about The Golden Globe Awards and how they may
affect the Oscars. Entertainment Weekly listed possible nominees for the major
categories such as Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, etc. The
difference between such films as The Shape of Water (being more of a fantasy-based
film) and The Post (based on real life events surrounding VIet Nam War, POst
newspaper) makes it difficult to predict. Of course, that didn't stop attendees from
making their predictions and having fun thinking each was surely going to be right.
Many of the attendees went to the Suburban Diner until the wee hours. Great meeting.

First, welcome to new attendee Dianne.
Our monthly film discussion group began by going over the Oscar nominations. The
front runner for Best Picture seems to be The Shape Of Water. The major omission was
that there was not a single nomination for Wonder Woman. Some attendees had seen
Black Panther the night before and generally recommended it. It is breaking box office
records all over the place! The next big Marvel movie will be Avengers Infinity Wars in
May. Liz had read the book Ready Player One, enjoyed it, and is anticipating the
Spielberg film in March. Conversation was continued at the Suburban diner until the
wee hours. An entertaining and informative evening.
P.S. The next evening I finally got to watch Battlefield Earth on The Movie Channel. 117
minutes of my life I'll never get back!
