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. 443: Us, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Call It!

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt are joined by Caless Davis of the Feelin Film podcast to discuss Jordan Peele’s latest, ‘Us’.  Peele’s sophomore effort deals with the concept of the other.  And us. After the breakout hit of ‘Get Out’, can Peele repeat the runaway success and deliver another intellectually and emotionally resonant thriller?  Then Matt and Chris finally catch up with Black Mirror’s ‘Bandersnatch’ with Caless.  The Choose-Your-Own-Adventure sci-fi thriller that dares to answer the question, “Are you in avideo game, man?!?”  Can the film elevate itself above its central conceit, or is it weighed down by it? There’s the always deliriously entertaining rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week!  Then it’s the return of Call It!, the game of fatalistic choices featuring your favorite films, characters and actors.  Who is the best Alfred?  Which do you keep; Seven or Fight Club?  Who will win the streaming wars between Amazon and Netflix?  Tune in to find out!
