Feel like dropping us a note and telling us how great we're doing?  Or maybe that we have no idea what the heck we're doing and should shut down the whole thing?   Perhaps just a suggestion or two?

Well, drop us a line and let us know!  Don't be shy.  We can take it.  Especially if it's praise.  We eat that stuff up!

TFR Ep. 328: Dr. Strange, Hacksaw Ridge, 5 Favorite Pop Culture Escapes

Chris Scalzo

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’.  It’s an incredible story helmed by a troubled star.  Is Gibson fully on the road to restoring his reputation?  IS the film awards bound?  Does Sam Worthington finally cross the Tatum Line?  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.
