On this week’s episode of The First Run, Matt and Chris review Guy Ritchie’s adaption of the Camelot legendary with ‘King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword’. Does Ritchie’s aesthetic translate to the Arthurian legend? And does Charlie Hunnam finally…finally cross the Tatum Line? There’s then a rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight To DVD Picks of the Week. Then it’s a discussion of D.J. Caruso’s The Disappointments Room, starring Kate Beckinsale. Kate and her family move into a haunted house. Or she’s going crazy. Maybe both? Can Chris and Matt avoid the dreaded “Disappointments” pun? Then the guys let you know what are the 5 Best Background Movies to be playing while you’re doing something else. Now why you would be doing anything else? We have no idea.
