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
Films to Come started with some handouts. Our moderator handed out Horror Films of
the 1970's by John Kenneth Muir. Interesting to see how many of the movies on the
list one has seen. Attendees brought handouts as well. One mentioned that Patrick
Stewart was returning as Picard, and that Avengers Endgame was overtaking Avatar
as the biggest money maker ever. The second article was basically stating that John
Carpenter felt he was under appreciated. The third handout was about the President
of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, at the San Diego Comic-Con discussing Phase Four of
the Marvel Cinematic Universe being made up of the following:
Feige made a surprise announcement at the end saying that he didn't have time to
address where the Fantastic Four or X-Men would wind up in the franchise, but that
one additional project will be Blade, which will feature Mahershala Ali - of Green Book
Discussion continued at a nearby eatery. Fun and informative.

Enlightening evening and crowded evening. Double-digits turned out to join in on this
entertaining meeting. In addition to having a fun discussion about current films, old
favorites and those anticipated both in theaters and on TV/streaming, there were the
usual heckling, laughs and our poor moderator trying to wrangle the unruly - of which I
was not among. Merriment and mayhem continued at a diner where we discovered a
few things Bill likes to "check out" - I had to Bill, I had to lol!
Double-digit attendance enjoyed a spirited discussion of entertainment. Some films
people were looking forward or already saw included It Chapter Two, Hustlers, Ad
Astra, Rambo: Last Blood, Joker, sequels to Maleficient, Frozen, Terminator, et al. Fun
continued at a nearby eatery.
