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. 433: Mary Poppins Returns, The Mule, TFR Lounge

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt watched a couple of 2018 holdovers.  First up is the long awaited (we assume by someone) sequel to an all-time Disney classic.  Emily Blunt plays the titular character in ‘Mary Poppins Returns’!  The Dick Van Dyke-esque role is taken over by Lin-Manuel Miranda.  Is it a triumphant return by the magical nanny?  Or should Disney have focused instead on a Ms. Piggle-Wiggle adaption?  Then Clint Eastwood returns as he directs and stars in ‘The Mule’.  This time out Clint is retiree estranged from his family and in financial straits.  As he’s about to lose his business and home, he begins to run drugs for a cartel.  Can Clint stay ahead of the feds, save his home, and reunite with his family?  And how many threesomes will he participate in?  That’s right, I said how many.  Implying there is more than one.  There’s the always thrilling review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.   Finally with so much news coming out over the last week, it’s the return or the Lounge.  As I live and breathe, it’s another episode of The First Run!
