It’s January, and the pickings are slim at the movie theater, but we’ve found some quality nuggets for you here at Breakfast All Day. This week, Christy and Alonso play catch-up with a few movies we’ve been meaning to discuss: Marvel’s thrilling “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” which is streaming on Disney+; Asghar Farhadi’s gripping drama “A Hero,” which has been in theaters and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video; and the inventive, animated documentary “Flee,” which expands to more theaters this weekend. In news, we talk about the deaths of Meat Loaf, Louis Anderson and Andre Leon Talley, as well as the legendary Marty from Marty and Elayne at the Dresden, an extremely L.A. entertainer. Also: Sundance has begun virtually, Joss Whedon talks to New York Magazine, the M&M characters get a makeover, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from “Encanto” is a huge hit, Adele postpones her Las Vegas residency and Adam Rippon marries his boyfriend. And we’ve got a ton of stuff on our Patreon: recaps of this week’s “The Book of Boba Fett” on Disney+ as well as the first three episodes of “Peacemaker” on HBO Max, and a bonus Off the Menu review of 1967’s “In the Heat of the Night,” the Sidney Poitier film our subscribers chose for us. Enjoy, and thanks as always for joining us.
