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. 439: Fighting With My Family, High Flying Bird, 5 Best Performances In A Sports Film

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss the WWE biopic about the wrestler Paige, ‘Fighting With My Family’.  Written and directed by Stephen Merchant, does the film deliver the heart, action, and laughs we’ve all come to expect from a WWE film?  There are people that expect that.  Then it’s Steven Soderbergh’s latest, ‘High Flying Bird’, shot on an iPhone 7 and currently streaming on Netflix.  Does Soderbergh’s experimental side continue pay dividends?  Or should we just demand another Ocean’s film? (No)  There’s the always-reliable rundown of the releases on Blu-Ray and DVD you need to know about, featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week.  And the show wraps with Chris & Matt’s 5 Favorite Performances in a Sports Film.  Will Geena Davis’ Dottie make the cut?  Tom Hanks? Madonna? Rosie?  Someone has to mention ‘A League Of Their Own’?!?
