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
After missing a month, the group came back with a bang! Our moderator had lists
prepared of upcoming releases and was ready to get into films. Results of the Golden
Globes were discussed, especially how they line up with the Oscar nominations coming
out Tuesday morning. Green Book was very well received. Aquaman, though visually
impressive, was deemed a bit long with too much reliance on special effects. Creed 2,
Mary Poppins Returns, Black Panther, Bumblebee all received positive praise from
various attendees. It seemed there was something for everyone in theaters recently.
Fun evening and a great start to a new year of films.
|Films to Come
The magic word for the evening was Marvel - or if you prefer Mar-Vell! All things in the
Marvel universe were discussed, whether it be comics or films. Of course the new
Marvel release - Captain Marvel - may have had something to do with it. A film review
by Lindsay Bahr was read in part giving the film 2 1/2 out of 4 stars. Another article
was provided mentioning the convoluted history of the character. Can't say too much -
don't want any spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet. Festivities continued at the
nearby Tom Sawyer Diner. Fun & illuminating evening.
