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. 431: Vice, Bumblebee, The List: Christian Bale

Chris Scalzo

On this action-packed episode of The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney black comedy biopic, ‘Vice’.  Christian Bale plays Cheney as we move back and forth through time from one seminal event to another.  After the success of ‘The Big Short’, does McKay have another critically adored hit on his hands?  Then it’s on the Transformers prequel, ‘Bumblebee’.  Just what was B-127 up to in 1987 before Michael Bay got his hands on him?  Could this possible by a good Transformers movie?  And is that Soundwave?!?  There’s the always-riveting rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week.  Finally, Matt and Chris face off as they try to determine what Christian Bale’s 5 Best Performances are in our new segment, ‘The List’.  Enjoy this special episode that is more than meets the eye!  (groan)
