TFR Ep. 345: The Belko Experiment, Sanjuro, 5 Films That Should Never Be Remade
2 days ago
This week on The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss the latest from writer James Gunn (‘Slither’, ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’) and director Greg McLean (‘Wolf Creek’), ‘The Belko Experiment’. It’s a film about working in an office and having to fight your coworkers to death. You know, Monday. (Ha! Good one!) After that, it’s our brand new version of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, still featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then our Kurosawa-thon wraps up with the samurai sequel, ‘Sanjuro’. This time Toshiro Mifune is out to end corruption in a feudal Japanese village. Can the ronin save the town and the young bumbling samurai from certain death? And how cool can Mifune look while doing it? Finally, things wrap up with a discussion of the 5 Films That Should Never Be Remade. So grab that tape dispenser and get ready. You never know what may come in handy as a weapon… 00:00-11:37: Intro/The Belko Experiment 11:38-18:29: Blu-Ray & DVD Picks 18:30-28:57: Sanjuro 28:58-1:00:59: 5 Films That Should Never Be Remade 1:01:00-1:02:19: Wrap Up Theme music provided by Jamal Malachi Ford-Bey
