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!
February's discussion was chock full of newcomers, movies and Oscar
nominations/buzz. A handout of an Entertainment Weekly article was passed out. It
mentioned La La Land had won more Golden Globes than ever before and how it may
anticipate the same domination at the Academy Awards. Moonlight seems to be the
darling of the critics, so we'll have to see who prevails at the ceremony on Sunday,
February 26th. Other topics broached were new films such as Blade Runner 2049,
produced but not directed by Ridley Scott - giving some trepidation. Welcome to new
attendee Maksim (Max), who had a good time. Interesting night with fun discussions.
Always a fun time!!!!
|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.
