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. 450: Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, The Wandering Earth, 5 Streaming Hidden Gems

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss the 7th biggest video game adaption of all time (so far), ‘Pokémon: Detective Pikachu’!  Ryan Reynolds voices the titular Detective as he teams up with a grieving young man who recently lost his father.  The two of them team up to solve the crime, but can they catch’em all?!?  Then it’s on to the largest Chinese film of all time.  This is verified.  ‘The Wandering Earth’.  We’re starring down the barrel of a Red Giant sun and it’s time to pack up, retro fit the planet with big engines, and get the heck out of the solar system.  But what happens when that jackhole Jupiter sticks his big gaseous butt into the salsa?  There’s the always entertaining rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  Finally, in honor of Netflix’s complete lack of promotion of ‘The Wandering Earth’, Matt and Chris share their 5 Favorite Streaming Hidden Gems!  And we squeeze in some quick Batman casting talk. Pika, pika!
