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. 447: Hellboy '19, The Curse Of La Llorona, 5 Best Reboots

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Matt and Chris discuss the reboot of ‘Hellboy’, starring David Harbour as the titular demon and directed by genre favorite Neil Marshall. How does this new version stack up against del Toro’s two beloved, but minimally financially successful originals?  Then it’s the latest film in the ‘Conjuring’ universe, ‘The Curse Of La Llorona’.  A ghost is haunting a young family, determined to steal the children.  Does the Latin story open up new opportunities for the franchise, or is it undone by lukewarm storytelling and simple jump scares? There’s the always-arresting review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  Then with the release of ‘Hellboy’, Chris and Matt discuss their Five Favorite Franchise Reboots.  Which franchise makes the cut?  And will we ever get that Dredd sequel?  Now you have something to listen to while you’re in line for ‘Avengers: Endgame’.  Enjoy!
