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
Double digit attendance enjoyed another spirited film discussion. Besides the lists for
May and June releases provided by the moderator, copies of the calendar from
Entertainment Weekly for May / June / July / August releases was handed out. The
major film discussed was Avengers Infinity War, which was universally praised.
Upcoming releases anticipated were Deadpool 2, Solo, Ant-Man & the Wasp, Jurassic
World: Fallen Kingdom. A very informative evening. Everyone enjoyed adding what
they'd been watching/movies seen/recommends. I always enjoy hearing from
attendees and learning about new TV series or possibly an obscure movie I hadn't
heard of. Always a fun night.
|Films to Come
A lot of summer blockbusters were discussed, and beyond. Things started off with
Would You Be My Neighbor?, a documentary on Fred Rogers, from the iconic Mr. Rogers
Neighborhood children's show. Incredibles 2 had a lightning quick pace and was worth
the wait. Fun film. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was a lot of fun, as always, great
summer movie. Ant-Man and the Wasp was even better than the original Ant-Man,
which was good. From a drum playing ant to a giant Hello Kitty pez dispenser, this
movie hit all the marks for a fun time. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again just opened,
sequel/ prequel to the original Mamma Mia of ten years ago, musical based on the
music of the band ABBA. Festivities continued at the Suburban Diner until the wee
hours. Fun and informative as always.
