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. 428: Boy Erased, The Night Comes For Us, 5 Favorite Holiday Movie Characters

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt review writer, director, and star Joel Edgerton’s ‘Boy Erased’, also starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, and Russell Crowe.  Edgerton’s film is based on Garrard Conley’s novel of his experiences with gay conversion therapy and the impact it had on his and his family’s lives.   Then it’s on the Netflix grindhouse martial arts film, ‘The Night Comes For Us’, starring Joe Taslim and Iko Uwais.  What happens when a mob assassin can’t bring himself to kill the last surviving member of a village and goes on the run?  Well, you send Uwais after him!  And butts are subsequently kicked.  But is that enough?  There’s the endlessly entertaining rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.   Then the show is closed out with Matt and Chris’ favorite Holiday Movie Characters.  Who makes the cut?  Clark Griswold? George Bailey, Hans Gruber?!?  Listen on to find out!
