This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt review the raunchy comedy starring 12 year-olds, ‘Good Boys’. Produced by the folks that brought you ‘Super Bad’ and ‘Sausage Party’, three friends are desperate to get to a kissing party and have to navigate all kinds of crazy obstacles. Get those smooches kids! Is it the comedy hot of the summer, or just wholly inappropriate (which is still cool)? Chris then shares his thoughts on ‘The Kitchen’. The Vertigo graphic novel adaptation stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elizabeth Moss as wives whose criminal husbands get pinched (look at me using cool gangster lingo) and decide to take over the family business. What is that business. It’s crime! After that, the French New Wave Marathon begins with François Truffaut’s ‘The 400 Blows’. The classic, semi-autobiographical tale of a young man in fighting to survive in a world determined to beat him down. Is the film a home run out of the gate for the marathon, or has it simply just not aged well? There’s the riveting rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. The show then wraps with a special edition of the TFR Lounge as Matt and Chris discuss all the crazy news that’s dropped this week. Will Disney and Sony work out their differences or is Spider-Man gone from the MCU for good? How about the Bond 25 title reveal? And do we need a fourth Matrix? Gee whiz! That’s a lot of stuff.
