This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
Rachel Chu is happy to accompany her longtime boyfriend, Nick, to his
best friend's wedding in Singapore. She's also surprised to learn that
Nick's family is extremely wealthy and he's considered one of the
country's most eligible bachelors. Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel
must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and
something far, far worse -- Nick's disapproving mother.
**This month there is a tie-in with Suspense Central on Thursday,
February 6, 2020. See the movie then join the discussion of the book.
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.
|Romancing the Stone (1984)
We started off the new decade with the theme of lost worlds / lost and found. It was well
represented by Romancing the Stone (1984) starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and
Danny DeVito. A lot of action tied around a kidnapping and infamous stone. Fun movie that
provided lost jungles, lost stone and some nice nostalgia! Everyone attending went to a
nearby eatery to continue the fun evening.
