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. 454: Rocketman, Dark Phoenix, Top 5 Musicians In Need Of A Biopic

Chris Scalzo

This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt caught up with the Elton John biopic starring Taron Egerton, ‘Rocketman’. Does the film dodge the pitfalls that felled ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and avoid the curse of ‘Walk Hard’?  Then the Fox X-Men franchise comes to an end with ‘Dark Phoenix’.  It’s a second stab at the Jean Grey/Phoenix adaption before Disney does their relaunch. Can it right the ship after the failures of ‘Apocalypse’?  Or is it even worse?  There’s the always entertaining review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week.  The show then wraps with Matt and Chris sharing the Top 5 Music Biopics they want to see next.  Will your favorite band/musician make the cut?  Will Chris list David Bowie in slots 5 though 1?  Only one way to find out!  Listen on faithful…listener.
