This week on a super sized edition of The First Run, it's the film we've been promising to review for over a month now, but each time we juke you faint to the left, cut right. Stop short, spin move tack off down midfield. We really are the New York Jets of film podcasts. It's Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, with an assist from Bobby De Niro in David O'Russell's latest, 'The Silver Linings Playbook'. Can O'Russell take another tired genre, the romantic comedy and do what he did with 'The Fighter'? Make a stale genre seem fresh again? We'll review the big releases on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring Dave's Streaming Pick of the Week! Then it's the big one. Our Inventory of the 10 Best Films of 2012, with an added twist. It's a grudge match to the death as Dave and I iron out a master list between our two. Which I don’t think will be possible in the end. But at least it'll be fun to try.
