It’s a pair of first run features with our discussion of ‘Dr. Strange’ and ‘Hacksaw Ridge’! First up, it’s the latest in the MCU as Benedict Cumberbatch plays the titular (not a dirty word) Dr. Strange. Phase three of the MCU roles along and shows no sign of stopping financially at least… After that, Mel Gibson makes his big budget directorial return with the true war story, ‘Hacksaw Ridge’.

As always the guys review the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight To DVD Picks of the Week. Then, after a discouraging week and another passing of a great musician (Leon Russell), Chris and Matt discuss the Five Favorite Pop Culture Escapes. Now take a deep breath. One more time… And take a listen to the latest episode of The First Run.
