This week on The First Run, Matt and Chris discuss the latest Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone collaboration, ‘Life Of The Party’. While McCarthy has her hits and is an undeniable talent, her films produced wth her husband Falcone (‘Tammy’, ‘The Boss’) have been underwhelming at best. Are they able to break the streak? Then it’s on to ‘I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore’, the directorial debut of Macon Blair (‘Blue Ruin’, ‘Green Room’). The film stars Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood with Lynskey playing an individual on the edge after her home is broken into. She’s desperate for people just to be nice, and all the chaos that ensues. There’s the always reliable rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Pick of the Week. Finally Chris and Matt make the tough decisions with the return of ‘Call It’. Which would you keep? Ant-Man or Doctor Strange? Indiana Jones or Han Solo? And more! So shoot first and listen the latest episode of The First Run.
