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
Besides celebrating George B.'s birthday, we delved into the world of film. Venom was
a hot topic. For a somewhat silly and not well rated film, it's doing exceptionally well at
the box office. The star Tom Hardy has a lot to do with it. Other films discussed were A
Star Is Born (Bradley Cooper great as both director and star, Lady Gaga ok acting
wise), First Man, a film about Neil Armstrong starring Ryan Gosling, directed by the
director of LaLa Land. The trailers for Aquaman, previously mentioned in Drawing A
Crowd, were awesome. Television shows for the new season were also mentioned.
Supernatural going into it's 14th season, a new Superman series (in that further films
of the character have been put on hold) is on the horizon, and other new contenders
like Manifest. Fun and informative evening.
|Films to Come
Upcoming December films were discussed based on the moderator's infamous Maltin
List. Some of the anticipated films include Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Poppins Returns,
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Bumblebee (a Transformers prequel), Holmes &
Watson (a comedy version), Roma (directed by Alfonso Cuaron). Discussion was lively
and varied with people chiming in about what they'd seen and were looking forward to
seeing. A nice variety of big movies, smaller indie type films and TV were offered for
discussion. Festivities continued at the nearby Tom Sawyer Diner. Fun night as always.
