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. 416: The Predator, A Simple Favor, The Street Fighter, 5 Films Improved By Adding Schwarzenegger

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss the return of the Predator in…’The Predator’.  Former Predator star Shane Black takes his swing at reinvigorating the franchise.  After delivering a couple great films like ‘The Nice Guys’ and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’ and a pretty good one in ‘Iron Man 3’, does Black launch a new era for the franchise?  Then it’s on to Paul Feig’s, ‘A Simple Favor’.  Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick star in the neo-noir comedy thriller.  What would you do if the super-stylish cool Mom with the high-powered job asked you to watch your kid, then disappeared?!?  Then our Martial Arts marathon continues with Sonny Chiba in ‘The Street Fighter’.  A film beloved by Quentin Tarantino and one Chris has always heard about, but never seen.  Can it live up to the hype?  There’s the always reliable review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  Finally in honor of ‘The Predator’, Matt and Chris try and figure out what films would be improved by adding Arnold Schwarzenegger.   Chris feels he could make an argument that those movie would be all of them.  Including ones Arnold already appeared in.
