This week on The First Run, Matt and Chris discuss the latest entry in the Conjuring universe, ‘The Nun’. A side character in the last ‘Conjuring’ film gets a promotion to the big time, but can she handle the big stage? Chris shares his thoughts on the Jennifer Garner action-er, ‘Peppermint’. Directed by Pierre Morel, can the pair start a new franchise like his prior attempt with Liam Neeson in ‘Taken’? Then our Martial Arts marathon continues with the cult classic ‘The Five Deadly Venoms’. After seeing the Master at work in our previous show, how does this tale measure up? And who is the mysterious ‘Scorpion’?!? Mystery and Kung Fu mesh together, but is it as delicious as your favorite DQ Blizzard? There’s the always reliable rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Finally it’s the 2018 Rotten Tomatoes Score Contest! Last year Chris pulled it out with the finally film. Can Matt get his revenge? Or will Chris just keep on doing what he does…win.
