On this episode of The First Run, we discuss the potential savior of the video game movie genre, the ‘Tomb Raider’ relaunch starring Alicia Vikander as the legendary (?) Lara Croft. Can it break the video game movie curse? Then we discuss Taran Killam’s ‘Killing Gunther’, not starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Do we have another mockumentary hit here? Or does the film reveal mockumentaries as a tired genre. The last recourse of the budget challenged filmmaker? We’ll tell you the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then we wrap the show up with the return of your favorite fill-in the blank game, TFR Libs. Grab your bow and arrow and rock climbing pick thingee. Load up the ipod and take a listen to the latest episode of The First Run.
