On this week’s episode of The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. Chris has repeatedly said the Thor movies have been the weakest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and had no interest in yet another installment. Then one decision was made. Marvel hired Taiki Waititi to direct. Waititi helmed the hilarious ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ and a TFR favorite ‘Hunt For The Wilderpeople’. And Chris was then…intrigued. Can Waititi turn Thor around? Could it even be one of the MCU’s best films? As always there’s the rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight To DVD Picks of the Week. Then the show closes with the return of The Lounge. What’s up with that New Mutants horror film? What does Ridley Scott think would improve the Alien films? And what’s going to happen with that Justice League film? Sounds like fun!
