This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt are joined by Mr. Erik Gern of the ‘Full of Fried Fish’ blog. You can read his work here at Full Of Fried Fish. The two gentlemen, and Chris, discuss Pixar’s return of the super-powered Parr family in ‘Incredibles 2’. It’s been 15 long years but Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Vowell and writer/director Brad Bird are back. (John Ratzenberger too!) Can the film possible have been worth the wait? Also the guys caught up with what was supposed to be the big comedy of the summer, ‘Tag’. Featuring an exceptional strong cast of Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Hannibal Burress, Jake Johnson and Isla Fisher, is this the comedy to beat this season? There’s the terribly exciting review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Finally the show wraps with the return of Who Dat?!? Who responds as Rian Johnson? Who’s Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass, having to address AMC’s new A-List program? And how is Steve Trevor still around in those new ‘Wonder Woman 84’ photos? Who else shows up? There’s only one way to find out. Listen on True Believer!
