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. 344: Kong: Skull Island, Ikiru, 5 Best Movie Hunters

Chris Scalzo

Kong (don’t call him King) returns.  This time he’s attacking/saving Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Sam Jackson and John Goodman on the mysterious Skull Island.  Does Legendary Pictures’ continuation of their Monsterverse (after Godzilla ’14) validate the need for a franchise?  Is a bigger Kong truly better?  And does Samuel L. Jackson get to drop an ‘F’ bomb? (No.)  Our Kurosawa-than continues with what many believe is his true masterpiece, ‘Ikiru’.  Kurosawa’s tale of a man facing his imminent demise and attempting to finally discover what it means to live, while dealing with the government bureaucracy he’s been a part of for most of his life.  But is it funny?  As always Chris & Matt review the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, Featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week.  The guys then wrap up the show with their 5 Favorite Movie Hunter or Tracker Characters.   Chris really drops the ball on this one.  Enjoy!
