Tell us about a scene from any movie that worked for you and why. (Have fun with these questions! They're intended to encourage you to think about what we're watching and to facilitate friendly discussion. There is no wrong answer!)

I enjoy movies that have a wholesome message. I'm getting tired of movies based soley, or mostly on special effects.

The Gaslamp Film Society is a "movie & discussion" group based in downtown San Diego.
We generally meet on Wednesdays, at the Gaslamp or Hillcrest theaters, to watch new, critically-acclaimed releases. These are generally movies that score >70% on the rottentomatoes.com ratings aggregator.
Following our screenings, we adjourn to a nearby restaurant to discuss what we've seen. We believe that each film can teach us something about the craft of storytelling, and we workshop the film together, breaking down the plot points, themes, scenes, etc.
We strive for afun, respectful atmosphere for critical film discussion, where everybody's participation is our goal. For that reason, we limit the number of attendees to a smaller group, and expect you to attend if you've RSVPed "Yes." A picture of members is compulsory so we can find you at events. If you are not accepted into the group for this reason, you're encouraged to rejoin once you've included one.
Finally, our discussion board is a forum for your movie notes, and place to bounce your ideas off others: What do you think the film was trying to say, and in what ways did/didn't it succeed? Whichscenes worked for you and how would you improve those that didn't?
