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
Many of our attendees wore green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, adding a fun element
to an already fun discussion. Topics included the new King Kong film Kong: Skull
Island. Some felt it was ultra violent while others thought Kong has always been so.
Our moderator compared King Kong and Godzilla films - it was a tie at 5 each. The
rumor is that there will be a Godzilla vs. Kong film in 2020. The Entertainment Weekly
First Look 2017 edition listed some interesting films coming up, such as Blade Runner
2049 (October 6), Alien: Covenant (May 19), Wonder Woman (June 2), among others.
Another is Fate of the Furious (April 14), the eighth in the very successful franchise.
The controversy of La La Land versus Moonlight at the Oscars was a topic as well. Fun
and informative evening.

Lively and varied discussion. Our well prepared moderator, handouts at the ready,
covered current theatrical releases, upcoming releases, TV tie-ins and lots of
interesting facts about movies. Attendees took turns discussing what they'd
seen/watched/are looking forward to. From blockbusters like Fate of the Furious to
indie films like Colossal, we covered them all. Much fun was had talking about who
liked what, just how much reality had to be checked at the door for Fate of the Furious,
upcoming TV reboots and more. Chiller convention was a topic, as well as dinosaur
eggs, time travel, self-driving cars, Entertainment Weekly and Tom Cruise----had to be
there! Very enjoyable time.
