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!

Even heavy rain, thunder and lightening couldn't keep people away from the Films to
Come discussion! An August release, Alpha, began our discussion. Bill Wagner had
seen it and recommended it. He felt great cinematography was it's highlight. Bill's
review included, "Saw this yesterday in 3 D. Gorgeous. Very ERB like."
Coming from Bill, a huge ERB fan, that's high praise. He even felt it was worth 3D
ticket price. Upcoming films for September were also mentioned, listed on the
infamous list our moderator compiles. The Fall Preview guide calendar by
Entertainment Weekly was passed out, covering release dates for September through
December. Informative and spirited discussion ensued. Don't get the moderator
started on Aquaman!
|Films to Come
Double-digit attendees enjoyed a spirited discussion on films seen and films to be
seen. The Predator currently out was compared to the original Predator, generally
unfavorably. A new version of A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper directing and starring
along with Lady Gaga was discussed, along with previous film versions starring Janet
Gaynor, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. The trailer for Aquaman was well received.
Peppermint starring Jennifer Garner and Colette starring Keira Knightley had not been
seen but were films anticipated. A documentary The Great Buster: A Celebration about
the great Buster Keaton was also mentioned. Fun and informative evening.
