We’re back in the Matrix this week on Breakfast All Day — but did we ever really leave? Christy and Alonso review “The Matrix Resurrections,” the fourth film in the franchise, on this final episode of 2021. We also review Joel Coen’s avant-garde “The Tragedy of Macbeth” and Pedro Almodovar’s excellent “Parallel Mothers.” And at the end, we have a lengthy spoiler discussion of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” now that it’s been out for several days and folks have had a chance to see it (but if you want to avoid this, the show ends at the 55-minute mark). In news, we discuss Spidey’s record-breaking opening at the box office, more Chris Noth fallout, LA Film Critics Association winners, Oscar shortlists in several categories, that first-person Variety story on Bryan Singer and more. And for our Patreon friends, we recap the thrilling finale of “Hawkeye” on Disney+ and discuss the December Off the Menu film you chose for us, Ingmar Bergman’s Oscar-winning “Fanny and Alexander.” We’re so thankful to you all for spending some of your time with us during this tumultuous year. Enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you in a happier, healthier 2022!
