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!

A major topic throughout the meeting concerned Blade Runner 2049. The sequel to
the 1982 film was generally panned for it's excessive length (approx. 163 minutes) and
extremely slow pace. Some saw some artful touches in the film, others not so much.
The major films desired to be seen were Thor: Ragnarok (11/3/2017) and Justice
League (11/17/2017). The new Pixar film Coco (11/22/2017) was also highly
anticipated. New television shows, as well as returning favorites, were discussed.
New shows included The Gifted and Marvel's Inhumans. Returning favorites included
Supernatural, Walking Dead and Big Bang Theory. Fun and informative meeting led by

Since Golden Globe nominations came out Monday (12/11), and they tend to be an
indicator of what the Academy Awards may hold in store, there was talk about the
films getting nods. Justice League was revisited from last month's discussion, but the
big names were Pixar's Coco and Star Wars The Last Jedi. I had seen Last Jedi prior to
the discussion and really thought Mark Hamill was great. Can't say much more until
others have seen the movie.
