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
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.
