About This Show
The First Run is a weekly podcast featuring lively, spirited talk about film. We'll be discussing a wide variety of films including new releases, lost classics and perhaps a controversial opinion or two. So come join us for some animated conversation, that only occasionally devolves into rudimentary chimp-like poop throwing.

TFR Ep. 330: Moonlight, Sing Street, 2016 Holiday Gift Guide
It’s a whole show of awesome this week as Chris and Matt discuss ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Sing Street’. A24 appears ready to knock it out of the park again with ‘Moonlight’. The story of one man’s personal growth through three key periods in his life. Does the film live up to all of the hype? Next up is John Carney’s ‘Sing Street’. This time Carney brings us to 1980’s Dublin, as a boy does what all boys do when they meet THAT girl. Start a band to impress her, of course! Does Carney continue his growth as a filmmaker after Chris’ beloved ‘Once’ and the not as good ‘Begin Again’? It’s then a review of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week. The show then wraps up with our annual Holiday Gift Guide for Movie Lovers. 2016 Edition! Naturally Matt screws that up… So what else are you going to listen to while you’re shopping? Holiday music?
