Episode 202: News, Luca, Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It
Jump on in, the water’s fine here at Breakfast All Day. This week, Alonso, Matt and Christy review the new Pixar movie on Disney+, “Luca,” and have widely varying thoughts on it. We also discuss the totally unnecessary sequel “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” although we can barely remember the original, and the entertaining documentary “Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It.” In news, we talk about the changes that came with LA County reopening on June 15, the great indie “Miss Juneteenth” returning to theaters, apologies from Lin-Manuel Miranda and Chrissy Teigen, Anthony Mackie on the Sam-and-Bucky bromance in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and your weekly dose of Bennifer news. And over at our Patreon, we recap the shocking season finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale” as well as episode 2 of “Loki.” Grab a scoop of gelato on this languid summer day and join us!

Episode 201: Marvel Mondays: Avengers: Infinity War
It’s hard to believe we’re almost done with our Marvel Mondays series, but here we are with “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018). Christy and Nicolas talk about how fun it is to see the various Marvel characters interact with each other, whether Nic relates to surly Teenage Groot, how emotional the snap is — especially when it comes to Spider-Man — and how shocking this movie seemed when it came out. We were also impressed with the fact that in this giant film where so much is at stake, there are so many great, little moments and funny lines. We’d love to hear your thoughts, and thanks as always for joining us for our Breakfast All Day miniseries.

Episode 200: News, In the Heights, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, Bo Burnham: Inside
It’s our 200th episode of Breakfast All Day! And what better way to celebrate than with the infectiously joyous “In the Heights.” Alonso, Matt and Christy review the big-screen version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical, which you really should see on the big screen if you feel comfortable doing that. We also review the sequel “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” and the must-see Netflix special “Bo Burnham: Inside,” which speaks pointedly and poignantly to the isolation we’ve all experienced over the past year. In news, we once again discuss the ever-changing mask rules, sequels to “A Quiet Place Part II” and “Cruella,” Chris Harrison out as host of “The Bachelor” franchise, Jeff Bezos heading to space, Tyler Perry bringing back Madea and Alyssa Milano pondering a run for Congress. And over at our Patreon, we recap the entertaining first episode of “Loki” on Disney+ and the intense penultimate episode of season four of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Summer’s here, so thanks for sharing part of it with us!

Episode 199: Marvel Mondays: Black Panther
We’re finally up to “Black Panther,” one of our complete favorites and a movie we’d been looking forward to revisiting since the beginning, on this week’s episode of Marvel Mondays. Christy and Nicolas talk about how sad it is to watch Ryan Coogler’s film following the death of Chadwick Boseman, how it features a villain in Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger who has an understandable reason for his actions, the philosophical debate about whether to protect the Vibranium and keep Wakanda peaceful and isolated or share it for the greater good and risk entering the world’s skirmishes, and what an emotional experience it was for Black moviegoers to see themselves on screen in this heroic capacity. We love this movie so much for so many reasons, so it was a joy to have a lengthy conversation about it. We’d love to hear your thoughts, too, and thanks as always for listening to our Breakfast All Day miniseries.

Episode 198: News, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, The Disciple, Port Authority
Summer is heating up but it’s a tepid week movie-wise here at Breakfast All Day. Stick with us, though, because Christy, Matt and Alonso have reviews of the horror sequel “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” the Indian film “The Disciple” on Netflix and “Port Authority,” an indie drama about a transgender romance. In news, we talk about the confusing new mask rules for businesses in California and theaters nationwide, Trump’s blog ending after just 29 days, Naomi Osaka’s decision to pull out of the French Open over news conferences, further Bennifer sightings, a cool “Airplane!” panel Christy had the pleasure of doing, and the career of “The Love Boat” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” co-star Gavin McLeod, who died this week at 90. And over at our Patreon, we recap this week’s excellent episode of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and we dig into the second half of Barry Jenkins’ gorgeous and harrowing miniseries “The Underground Railroad” on Amazon Prime Video. We’d love to hear your thoughts on all of this, and thanks as always for joining us.

Episode 197: Marvel Mondays: Thor: Ragnarok
This week on Marvel Mondays, we’re up to a movie Christy had been excited to rewatch from the very beginning: “Thor: Ragnarok” (2017). It’s one of her absolute favorites because it’s goofy, weird and full of surprises. She and Nicolas talk about how the humor in Taika Waititi’s film comes from Thor not being powerful and majestic but actually kinda boggled and bumbling. We love the interplay he has with Hulk, Valkyrie and Doctor Strange. Christy bores Nic with her story about meeting Cate Blanchett and being dazzled by her otherworldly presence. But she also gets to ask him: “What is the Devil’s Anus?” and learns that Nic is officially too old for bathroom humor. Hope you enjoy this episode of our Breakfast All Day miniseries as much as we enjoyed recording it, and thanks as always for joining us.

Episode 196: News, Cruella, A Quiet Place Part II, Moby Doc
Listening to the Breakfast All Day Podcast is the height of fashion, darling — especially this week, when we disagree strongly on a couple of new movies. Alonso loved the Disney villain origin story “Cruella” and Christy was not a fan (although the clothes are amazing). Christy loved the documentary “Moby Doc” and Alonso thought it was annoying. Matt is somewhere in between on both of these. But we were all in agreement on John Krasinski’s solid sequel “A Quiet Place Part II.” In news, we talk about California offering $116.5 million in prize money to get people vaccinated, the “Friends” reunion, the “Borat” extras on Amazon, Lindsay Lohan starring in a Netflix Christmas movie and Kelly Clarkson taking over Ellen DeGeneres’ talk-show time slot. And over at our Patreon, we review Chloe Zhao’s feature filmmaking debut, 2015’s “Songs My Brothers Taught Me,” as May’s Off the Menu selection, and recap episode 7 of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Thanks for joining us, and have a safe and fun holiday weekend!
25 minutes | May 24, 2021
Episode 195: Marvel Mondays: Spider-Man: Homecoming
This week on Marvel Mondays, we’re up to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017), one of Nicolas’ absolute favorites and a movie he’d been looking forward to revisiting since the beginning of our series. He and Christy discuss the infectious joy of Tom Holland’s performance, the cool, meta casting of Michael Keaton, the connection to other Marvel movies and “Into the Spider-Verse,” and the fact that the more intimate stakes for teenage Peter Parker mean that stopping bad guys on the streets of Queens is as stressful as asking his crush to the big dance. Let us know how you’re enjoying our friendly neighborhood podcast, and thanks as always for joining us on Breakfast All Day!
73 minutes | May 21, 2021
Episode 194: News, Army of the Dead, P!nk: All I Know So Far, New Order
Movie theaters are opening and nature is healing — unless you’re a zombie — on Breakfast All Day. This week, Christy, Alonso and Matt review Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead,” one of the more enjoyable examples of the director’s muscular style. Also: the documentary “P!nk: All I Know So Far,” about the pop star juggling touring and motherhood, and the shocking Mexican drama “New Order.” In news, we talk about what a thrill it was to see each other in person at a screening for the first time since February 2020 (and we’ll have a review of “A Quiet Place Part II” next week). We also discuss Ricky Schroder hassling Costco employees, the Lollapalooza lineup this summer, that “Shrek” article that got everyone angry for a day or so and the career of the tremendous Charles Grodin, who died at 86. And over at our Patreon, we recap the first five episodes of Barry Jenkins’ gorgeous and harrowing miniseries “The Underground Railroad,” as well as this week’s episode of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Summer’s coming, so grab something cold to drink and join us!

Episode 193: Marvel Mondays: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Rocket and Drax and Groot — now in baby form — are back in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (2017), the rare sequel that’s better than the original. At least Christy thinks so on this week’s episode of Marvel Mondays. Nicolas loves it, too, beginning with its exuberantly joyful opening title sequence to ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky.” We discuss how the characters evolve — they’re funnier but also more vulnerable — how writer-director James Gunn finds a great balance of playful one-liners and serious moments, the great running bit in which characters have to explain things repeatedly to Baby Groot and the hilarious and heartbreaking fact that Star-Lord has long pretended David Hasselhoff is his dad. You’ll also hear Baxter, our Boston terrier, whimpering in the background because he wants to play. Thanks as always for joining us on our Breakfast All Day miniseries!
82 minutes | May 14, 2021
Episode 192: News, The Woman in the Window, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, Those Who Wish Me Dead, Riders of Justice
We’ve all been trapped inside like “The Woman in the Window” for far too long, but things are looking up here at Breakfast All Day. Christy, Matt and Alonso have mixed reactions to this brazen Hitchcock homage with an all-star cast led by Amy Adams. We also review “Spiral: From the Book of Saw,” even though none of us has seen a single “Saw” movie; “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” a muscular, ’90s-action throwback starring Angelina Jolie; and by far the best movie of the week — and maybe one of the best of the year — Denmark’s “Riders of Justice,” starring Mads Mikkelsen. There’s a ton of news, including new CDC mask guidelines, significant Golden Globes fallout, Ellen DeGeneres ending her talk show, Seth Rogen parting ways with James Franco, further evidence of a Bennifer resurgence and Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees including The Go-Go’s, Tina Turner and the Foo Fighters. And over at our Patreon, Alonso and Christy recap episode 5 of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which offers a post-apocalyptic tour of Chicago. Thanks for joining us as the world returns to normal!
25 minutes | May 10, 2021
Episode 191: Marvel Mondays: Doctor Strange
This week on Marvel Mondays, we get to revisit one of Christy's absolute favorite MCU movies: “Doctor Strange” (2016), which is singular and funny and dazzling and, yes, strange. Christy and Nicolas talk about how Benedict Cumberbatch‘s character is the kind of archetype Tom Cruise often plays, how playful and trippy the movie is, what a fantastic cast it features (Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong), the backlash over the casting of the always tremendous Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One and questions we have about the Time Stone. We’ve come to bargain, so join us for the latest episode of our Breakfast All Day miniseries.
71 minutes | May 7, 2021
Episode 190: News, Wrath of Man, Here Today, The Water Man, The Boy From Medellin
Sure, it’s Mother’s Day weekend, but Christy, Alonso and Matt have a bunch of movies about dudes to review on Breakfast All Day. Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham re-team for the heist thriller “Wrath of Man.” Billy Crystal directs and stars as an aging comedian with dementia in “Here Today.” David Oyelowo directs and has a supporting role in the Spielbergian fantasy “The Water Man.” And J. Balvin is “The Boy From Medellin,” a documentary that takes an intimate look at the Colombian reggaeton superstar. In news, we talk about Elon Musk hosting "Saturday Night Live," new Marvel movies over the next few years, Will Smith’s dad bod reality show, and the possible return of Bennifer (that’s Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez for all you young’uns). And over at our Patreon, Alonso and Christy recap episode 4 of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Join us for Breakfast and Brunch!
26 minutes | May 3, 2021
Episode 189: Marvel Mondays: Captain America: Civil War
We’ve crossed the halfway mark on our Marvel Mondays journey with “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), one of those epic Russo brothers extravaganzas that bring together a ton of superheroes in thrilling and dizzying ways. Christy and Nicolas talk about how Cap and Tony take different stances than you might expect in response to the oversight of the Sokovia Accords, the introduction of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland as Spider-Man, the fun of assembling the teams (and the confusion of remembering who’s on whose side), and those incredible action sequences. We also debate who we agree with philosophically, and explore the notion of whether it’s better to ask for forgiveness vs. permission with another hypothetical about sour gummy worms. We’re loving doing these, so thanks so much for joining us on our Breakfast All Day spinoff.
76 minutes | Apr 30, 2021
Episode 188: News, The Mitchells vs. the Machines, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse, Things Heard & Seen, My Octopus Teacher
“The Mitchells vs. the Machines” is sure to be one of our favorite movies of the year, and you can enjoy the hilarious family comedy now on Netflix. Also this week on Breakfast All Day, Christy, Alonso and Matt review the extremely so-so “Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse,” the horror movie/marital drama “Things Heard & Seen,” and “My Octopus Teacher,” which won best documentary feature at the Academy Awards last weekend. (Christy has lots of thoughts on that one.) In news, we talk about Disneyland reopening, the arrests in Lady Gaga’s dognapping, Oscar ratings (and the former president’s thoughts on them) and Leonardo DiCaprio remaking Thomas Vinterberg’s excellent, Academy Award-winning “Another Round.” And over at our Patreon, Alonso and Christy recap the first three episodes of the new season of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which came out on Hulu this week. Blessed day to you! And thanks for joining us.

Episode 187: Academy Awards 2021 Recap
We knew it would be a bizarre pandemic-era Oscar ceremony, but no amount of prognosticating could have prepared us for the highs and lows, risks and surprises we saw Sunday night. Alonso and Christy have a recap for you of the winners, speeches, structural changes and even a bit of fashion. What worked? What didn’t? Who knows??? We’d love to hear what you thought about the Academy Awards (if you watched, that is — ratings were at their lowest ever for a multitude of reasons), and thanks for joining us on this Breakfast All Day Extra.
22 minutes | Apr 26, 2021
Episode 186: Marvel Mondays: Ant-Man
This week on Marvel Mondays, we were thrilled to revisit “Ant-Man” (2015), a movie that’s pure joy and the best kind of silly. It’s also one of Nicolas’ favorites in the MCU, and a breath of fresh air after the heaviness of last week’s movie, “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Christy and Nic talk about the casting of Paul Rudd, the playful Michael Pena flashbacks and the clever use of the ant armies’ many skills. We also touch on an idea that several movies in the franchise explore: the role of technology and innovation, and whether to use them for good or evil. Also, you will hear us argue about what exactly is happening in the credits scene where Captain America and Falcon have the Winter Soldier’s arm in a vice — we just rewatched “Captain America: Civil War” for next week’s episode, so we now realize that’s what it’s from. It’s a blur! Anyway, thanks for joining us this week for our Breakfast All Day miniseries. We love doing it and we’re glad you’re here.

Episode 185: News, Oscar picks, Mortal Kombat, Stowaway
“Nomadland” has had a terrific run throughout this weird awards season, and we expect it’ll win best picture and Chloe Zhao will win best director during Sunday night’s Academy Awards. Christy, Matt and Alonso make a bunch of other Oscar picks this week on Breakfast All Day, but we’re hoping for some surprises and we’re generally curious as to how this year’s unusual show will go down. We also have a couple of movie reviews for you: “Mortal Kombat,” which is indeed based on the video game (but isn’t stupid enough), and the well-acted but distractingly implausible sci-fi drama “Stowaway.” In news, we discuss Spirit Award winners, the death of rapper/producer Shock G/Humpty Hump of Digital Underground, Caitlyn Jenner running for California governor (and Matthew McConaughey possibly running for Texas governor), the Hollywood billboard begging Marvel to revive Tony Stark, more disturbing reports about producer Scott Rudin’s abusive behavior, and Morrissey’s angry response to “The Simpsons” episode about him. And over at our Patreon, we recap the disappointing series finale of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and review 1947’s “Gentleman’s Agreement,” the Oscar winner our subscribers chose as this month’s Off the Menu selection. Let us know what you’d like to see win at the Academy Awards, and thanks for joining us.
22 minutes | Apr 19, 2021
Episode 184: Marvel Mondays: Avengers: Age of Ultron
It’s time for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on Marvel Mondays, a movie Christy really didn’t like the first time and one that Nicolas had never seen before. On this viewing, we walked away with extremely different opinions from each other. Nic enjoyed the chaos of seeing all the Avengers fighting in one place, as well as the introduction of Wanda, Vision and Pietro, whom we’d gotten to know more in-depth on “WandaVision.” Christy basically wanted a three-hour version of the party scene at Tony’s house, with our heroes drinking, laughing, flirting and teasing each other about their inability to pick up Thor’s hammer — a joke with a great payoff later. What are your thoughts? Let us know, and thanks as always for joining us for our Breakfast All Day spinoff.
87 minutes | Apr 16, 2021
Episode 183: News, Monday, Jakob's Wife, Gunda, Honeydew
It’s the weekend but we’re already looking ahead to “Monday” on Breakfast All Day. Matt, Alonso and Christy differ wildly on the Greek romance starring Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough. We also review the dream pairing of Barbara Crampton and Larry Fessenden in the horror movie “Jakob’s Wife”; the mesmerizing, black-and-white documentary “Gunda”; and “Honeydew,” a trippy, ’70s-inspired thriller that’ll make you think twice about going camping. In news, we discuss the devastating announcement that the ArcLight Theaters and Cinerama Dome are closing, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez breaking up (for real this time), Chrissy Teigen’s return to Twitter, Chet Hanx’s unfortunate rap video, former “Bachelor” Colton Underwood coming out as gay and the upcoming release of an extended “Borat” sequel. And over at our Patreon, we recap the dramatic penultimate episode of “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” on Disney+. Let us know what you’ve watched lately, and thanks as always for joining us.
