Breakfast All Day movie reviews

May 11, 2024

It's a jam-packed episode full of summertime treats on the latest Breakfast All Day. For your weekly dose of blockbuster escapism, we review "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes," which we were just so-so on, especially given how satisfying "War for the Planet of the Apes" was seven years ago. We also discuss a couple of indies in theaters: the L.A. noir comedy "Poolman," Chris Pine's directorial debut, which is being savaged critically; and the trippy and transporting "I Saw the TV Glow" from transgender director Jane Schoenbrun. But first: Movie News LIVE!, where we talked about John Mulaney's "Everybody's In L.A." series on Netflix, a new "Lord of the Rings" movie, season 3 of "The Bear," the Met Gala and more. And over at our Patreon, we recap episodes 3 and 4 of "The Sympathizer" on Max. Thanks for sharing some of your time with us!
