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!
