This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt settle in with the stars, both in space and with the dreamy Brad Pitt in James Gray’s ‘Ad Astra’. Sometimes the biggest epics have a small, intimate core. And other times they’re long and dull. So which is ‘Ad Astra’? And why do I feel like I need to call my Dad? Then our Car Chase Marathon begins with ‘Vanishing Point’. What are you willing to do to deliver a car to San Francisco in time? And what if the car chase has almost nothing to do with your car chase movie, man? There’s the big release on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Finally, the show closes with Matt and Chris sharing their 5 Favorite Scenes That Take Place in Space! And how many of them will be from a Star Wars movie? Hacks.
