On this super-sized episode of The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss David Lowery’s ‘A Ghost Story’, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara. A supernatural drama more about loss and acceptance, with no jump scares and almost interminably long pie-eating scenes? This can’t possibly be any good, or can it?!? (cliff hanger!) Then it’s on to the movie sequel (not an adaptation) of Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’ book series, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. The film serves more as a continuation of the book series. Will that bold strategy pay off Cotton? There’s the rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight To DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then it’s the return of The Lounge where Matt & Chris discuss their favorite film theories, the glut off streaming services and the fight over net neutrality. It’s a big’n. So pack a lunch, download and enjoy!
