This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss “Hobbs and Shaw” and “Holmes and Watson”. AND! It’s a week of partners, friends, and attempts at humor from all involved. First up, it’s a spin-off from the go-to “that’s ridiculous” franchise, “Fast and Furious”. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham star as the titular Hobbs and Shaw. They’re tasked to defeat Idris Elba’s mechanically super-sized bad guy and save the world. All the while taking stinging jabs at each other. Oh for fun! Then Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reunited in last summer’s sure-fire comedy hit, “Holmes And Watson”. There’s nothing these two can’t make hilarious… Right?!? There’s the always exhilarating run down of the big releases on physical media, featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week. This thrilling episode closes with Matt and Chris’ 5 Favorite Movie Spin-Offs. Sumbitch!
