This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
We start the new year off with a fun adventure! Romancing the Stone
Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner star in this high-flying romance
about a novelist out to rescue her sister in the jungle and the suave
fortune seeker who sidetracks her!
In keeping with the fine Chris Christmas Tradition, a "fun" holiday selection: "Krampus"
(2015) was viewed. Krampus, in Central European folklore, is a horned, anthropomorphic
figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes
children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the
well-behaved with gifts (wikipedia). The movie shows how one young boy's displeasure at
holiday time, sets off a chain reaction that culminates with a visit from Krampus. Three
extras were also shown: an alternate ending (slightly more upbeat than the theatrical
version), a gag reel and a Meet the Cast doc. Conversation continued at a nearby eatery.
TSF! had a great year! Looking forward to a great 2020. See you in January.
|Free Enterprise (1999)
Thanks to George, we showed Free Enterprise with William Shatner. Shatner tells two
fledging filmmakers that he wants to do Julius Caesar - where he plays all of the parts! Fun
evening, fun movie. Conversation continued at a nearby restaurant.
