Our Peter tingle is on full blast this week because we have a Breakfast All Day review of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” Christy and Alonso discuss the much-anticipated Marvel sequel without spoilers, but we’ll have a fuller review where we go into greater detail next week once more folks have seen the film. Also: Guillermo del Toro’s stylish noir “Nightmare Alley,” Maggie Gyllenhaal’s beautifully acted directorial debut “The Lost Daughter,” and the psychological thriller “The Novice,” the gripping first feature from writer-director Lauren Hadaway. In news, we discuss Spidey’s giant opening-night box office, Spirit Award and Golden Globe nominations, sexual assault allegations against Chris Noth, an update on that Jeremy Strong New Yorker piece, Ben Affleck’s conversation with Howard Stern (plus “Deep Water” going to Hulu), Barack Obama’s list of the year’s best films, and that adorable “Ted Lasso” animated Christmas short. And over at our Patreon, we recap this week’s revelatory episode of “Hawkeye” on Disney+ as well as the last two episodes of “The Great” season 2 on Hulu. Grab a glass of eggnog and join us!
