Equilibrium?  What in the world?  I never heard of it before!”  Me neither – until my cool friends enthusiastically recommended I screen this film for our Forum.  And you know what?  I have to say, it is surprisingly engaging for a movie that I never knew existed until this year!  I am tempted to give you the plot but what fun would that be?  Trust me – and my friend were correct:  It is quite entertaining with great action scenes and lots to talk about.  And if you are a Christian Bale fan, it is a must.  It even impressed Roger Ebert, who gave it 3 out of 4 stars, saying:

Equilibrium would be a mindless action picture, except that it has a mind. It doesn’t do a lot of deep thinking, but unlike many futuristic combos of sci-fi and f/x, it does make a statement.

So bring your heart and mind to engage and discuss the message and spirituality behind Equilibrium. We’ll be serving up freshly brewed coffee for the viewing and tasty croissant sandwiches during our discussion.  Don’t miss out!  And remember:  We are meeting at the High Point Branch.  Be sure to invite your friends.

Check out trailer below and hope to see you on the 13th @ 11 AM!

If you are alive and breathing and living in America, you know that in February you see more heart-shaped things [in red] than any other time of the year.  Why?  To remind you and everyone else that there is [must be!] a valentine out there for you – someone you can relate to, someone who can uniquely fill your heart, someone who truly loves you, someone who makes you sing and dance!    So bring your heart and mind to engage and discuss the message and spirituality behind (500) Days of Summer.  We’ll be serving up Starbucks coffee for the viewing and tasty sub sandwiches during our discussion.  Don’t miss out!

WSFF – January 2010 and beyond…

29 12 2009

Hello, folks!  Hope you had a very Merry Christmas – and perhaps a few DVDs here and there as presents?  I received a few that might make the “featured film of the month” list – like Gran Torino, Up! and Hotel Rowanda.

At our December Forum, we briefly skimmed through the list including Babette’s Feast, Star Trek, Iron Man I/II, Precious, Casablanca, The Natural [or any other baseball movie or a sports movie or a film about a favorite American past-time], Invictus and Gladiator.

Keep in mind that we are staying away from nudity and hoping for quality discussion-worthy films.  Obviously, we have to wait for the DVD release for some on the list, but at least it gives you an idea that we are aiming to cover different genres for us to explore and discuss.

So here’s your chance to contribute:  What’s on your list of films you’d like to watch and discuss in 2010?

The next WSFF will be on Saturday, 01.23.10 @ 10:30AM.
