This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.

Two less than successful film producers, approaching mid-life crisis
and clinging to their nerdy sci-fi obsessions, suddenly meet their idol:
William Shatner!

Amateur filmmakers and self-professed science fiction geeks Mark
(Eric McCormack) and Robert (Rafer Weigel) cannot help parsing their
adult lives into a series of "Star Trek" references. When they randomly
meet their childhood idol, former "Star Trek" star William Shatner (as
himself), the actor quickly becomes their friend and mentor despite
being a vulgar, self-effacing drunk. As time passes, Mark and Robert
come to learn the difference between fantasy and reality.
Wait Until Dark (1967)
10/8/19 recap

Chris H
Our theme of darkness was well represented by Wait Until Dark, a 1967 thriller starring
Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna and Jack Weston. Arkin, Crenna and Weston are
shady characters after a doll that Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. was accidentally given. The doll
contains heroin which they are desperate to obtain. The doll winds up in the hands of
Zimbalist's wife, played by Audrey Hepburn's
. Hepburn's character is blind. Her darkness of
vision and the darkness of the souls of the criminals lend themselves to a tense, well done
film.
The movie holds up quite well. Conversation continued at a nearby eatery.
Plains, Trains, and Automobiles (1987)
9/3/19 recap  

Chris H
Our theme of Getting there is half the fun was certainly well represented by Planes, Trains
and Automobiles (1987) written and directed by John Hughes (of Breakfast Club and 16
Candles fame). The film was both frantic and poignant. The film follows the characters of
Steve Martin and John Candy as they try to get home during the holiday season during a
storm. Their trials and journey are funny, touching and familiar to anyone who has traveled
at the holidays.Festivities continued at a nearby eatery. A lot of fun was had by all.
