We couldn’t imagine discussing “The Godfather” without our dear friend Ben Mankiewicz, so we were thrilled he was able to join us on our midweek Breakfast All Day drop-in. We revisit the Coppola classic for its 50th anniversary, and because we’re coming up on the finale of “The Offer” (which we’ve been recapping on our Patreon). Christy and Alonso also review the Jennifer Lopez documentary “Halftime,” which Christy is in (extremely briefly). And in news, we discuss the “Jurassic World Dominion” box office, Jennifer Hudson‘s EGOT, “Lightyear,” Philip Baker Hall, and friend of the show Geoff Swanson, who died unexpectedly last week at just 34.
* The extremely cool Grail Moviehouse in the heart of Asheville, NC’s River Arts District gets this week’s Movie House Shout-Out. They show indies like “Cha Cha Real Smooth,” documentaries, and they’re playing the annual Cat Video Fest starting June 24. To learn more about their programming or become a donor, you can find them here. Thanks to the Grail Moviehouse for helping spread the word on the work we’re doing to support indie theaters!
