Happy 2022! Things may seem uncertain so far, but we’re here for you no matter what on Breakfast All Day. Our dear friend and O.G. “What the Flick?!” co-host Ben Mankiewicz joins us to share his insights on a couple of bits of sad news: the deaths of Peter Bogdanovich and Sidney Poitier. Also in news: the many cancellations/postponements/virtual versions this new covid surge has caused, including the Sundance Film Festival, the Honorary Oscars, the Westminster Dog Show and “Morbius” (again). Plus: we remember the great Betty White and marvel at the billion-dollar box office of “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” We couldn’t start the new year without looking back at the best and worst movies of 2021. For new reviews, Alonso and Christy discuss “The 355,” “The Tender Bar,” and “Drive My Car,” the LA Film Critics Association’s pick for best picture. And for our Patreon subscribers, we recap the first two episodes of “The Book of Boba Fett” on Disney+. It’s a lot! So grab a cup of tea and a warm blanket and cozy up with our soothing podcast tones. Thanks so much for joining us.
