Part 2: Discussion

The Discussion will be held at 8:00 PM at The Fine Grind Coffee Bar in Little Falls. It's on Route 23 South (aka Newark Pompton Turnpike), in a strip mall a half mile or so to the south of the Willowbrook Mall.

You don't have to make the dinner to attend the discussion.

The evening's topic will be more literary than most, as I can think of more stories set in bookstores and libraries than I can movies. Here's one: the scene with Rachel Weiss on a ladder in a library in THE MUMMY. As usual, the focus is on works of fantasy, science fiction & horror cinema, literature and more.

The discussion is not limited to films. Television series, books, comic books and other genres are all grist for the mill.

Here's a list of topics we've discussed in the past:

    I was afraid the topic might be too narrow, but we went on and on about film and literary bookstores in sf/fantasy/horror. Movies mentioned included GHOSTBUSTERS (the spectral librarian opening scene), OBLIVION, THE TIME MACHINE (remake), SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES, HARRY POTTER (in more than one book and film), 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Nemo's private library), THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (burning library books to keep warm), ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE MUMMY (Rachel Weiss, world's clumsiest librarian), FARENHEIT 451, made for TV movies the two THE LIBRARIAN flicks, plus lots of instances from books, TV, anime, cartoons, and other media. Lot's of slapping our heads saying, "How could I have forgotten that one!" A whole lotta fun. Twelve of us made the discusssion.
