The thrilling “Mulan” should have been a huge summer blockbuster in the theaters; now, you can watch it at home on Disney+, and we have a Breakfast All Day review. Alonso, Matt and Christy also talk about the latest mind-bending drama from writer-director Charlie Kaufman, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”; Armando Iannucci’s take on Dickens with “The Personal History of David Copperfield”; and “Lingua Franca,” a lovely indie drama from transgender writer-director-star Isabel Sandoval. In news, we remember the great Chadwick Boseman, whose death from colon cancer shocked the world last week, and the guys and Christy debate whether she should drive to San Diego County to see “Tenet.” And over at our Patreon, we recap the latest episodes of “Lovecraft Country” and “The Vow” on HBO. Things are heating up as summer comes to an end, so join us!
