This week on The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss Gore Verbinksi’s ‘A Cure For Wellness’. Has the director of the first three ‘Pirates of the Carribean’ films return to horror (“The Ring”) been worth the wait? They guys then review the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight To DVD Picks of the Week. After that, it’s the beginning of our Kurosawa marathon with ‘Kagemusha’. The dramatized tale of the warring klans in 1500’s Japan, and the extent one klan goes to hide the loss of their leader. Finally, Chris & Matt tell you who should and who will win at the 2017 Academy Awards. So use us as your Oscars party pre-game appetizer. You’ll enjoy it better than that boring old veggie dip!
