We are your valentine and so much more on this jammed episode of Breakfast All Day. Alonso, Ben, Matt and I are together again -- three weeks in a row! -- with reviews of the sci-fi extravaganza "Alita: Battle Angel," the horror-comedy sequel "Happy Death Day 2U" and the extremely meta rom-com "Isn't It Romantic." We also discuss "Fighting With My Family," the feel-good Dwayne Johnson wrestling comedy, and we play catch up with Steven Soderbergh's excellent "High Flying Bird" on Netflix. As always, we recap the latest episode of HBO's "True Detective" (and this one was gooood), and we discuss the Motion Picture Academy's ridiculous decision to omit crucial categories from the Oscars broadcast including cinematography (!!!) and editing (!!!). Chocolate counts as a breakfast food, so dig in and enjoy.
UPDATE: A couple hours after we posted this week's podcast, the Academy announced that it would indeed present all 24 categories live during its Oscar broadcast in response to the massive backlash it received. So maybe we helped ...?
