It’s been a little while, but Christy and Nicolas are back with another Marvel Mondays episode of Breakfast All Day. This time we take on “Eternals,” and we have mixed feelings about it. Nic and Christy discuss how uniquely beautiful director and co-writer Chloe Zhao‘s film is and how exciting it is to see such a diverse cast. But it also makes these ungainly swings in pacing and tone, and a week after seeing the film, Nic couldn’t remember a whole lot about it. Also FYI: Christy misspoke initially here and said Richard Madden played Gemma Chan’s boyfriend — she meant his “Game of Thrones” co-star Kit Harington, and eventually corrected heself. And yes, we finally figured out that the behemoth Celestial’s name is Arishem, and not Assmouth as we kept calling him. Plus: bonus background sounds of Baxter playing with his squeaky lamby toy. “Eternals” is one of the weaker entries in the MCU, but we always love talking about movies together, and we’re grateful to have you join us. We’d love to hear your thoughts, too.
