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. 384: Hostiles, Blade Of The Immortal, The Lounge

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss Christian Bale’s latest film, ‘Hostiles’.  Director/Writer Scott Cooper tells the story of a retiring cavalry captain given one last mission, escort a Native American Chief back to his homeland to die.  It’s the Star Trek VI of westerns.  Then it’s on to the latest film from Takashi Miike’s latest, an adaption of the Japanese manga, ‘Blade Of The Immortal’.  It’s the story of  an immortal ronin seeking redemption by protecting a newly orphaned girl and hunt down the murderers.  Plus there’s some feudal politics to deal with.  There’s your dependable rundown of the big releases on Blu –Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight To DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  Then the show wraps with the return of the Lounge, a free form cop out when we can’t figure out how to make final segment fit what we want to talk about.  When in doubt, give up!
