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
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
|Films to Come
The September Films to Come discussion found television being discussed as much as
films! Most likely due to the fall season premiers of both returning favorites and the
slate of new series. Liz and Moshe really enjoyed the first episode of The Orville even
though it was generally panned. A handout of TV Guide's Fall 2017 calendar listed the
start dates for ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW. Most start the week of September
25th with the rest starting in early October. September and October film lists were also
distributed by our moderator, who did a great job of giving all attendees a chance to
chat about whatever TV/movie/book/event was of interest to them. Deb discussed a
fun sounding Star Trek Fathom event. The highly anticipated Stephen King adaptation,
IT, opened to booming business. Dominating the box office. Kingsmen: The Golden
Circle, a sequel to Kingsmen, was of interest. Blade Runner 2049, sequel to Blade
Runner from 1982, was also anticipated. Mother! with Jennifer Lawrence was seen,
deemed weird but good. Informative and fun meeting.
