The holidays are approaching and we’ve got plenty of cheer for you — and news, and reviews — on this week’s Breakfast All Day. Christy, Alonso and Matt discuss several new releases: the excellent “Nomadland”; “Love, Weddings & Other Disasters” (which convinced us we definitely need to do a worst-of 2020 list); “Ammonite”; the latest in Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” series, “Red, White and Blue”; and “I’m Your Woman.” In news, we discuss the announcement that shook up the film industry this week: Warner Bros.’ decision to release its entire 2021 slate both in theaters and on HBO Max. We also talk about Elliot Page coming out as transgender, the latest covid restrictions, Letitia Wright’s controversial vaccine tweets, Lady Gaga's Oreos and the deaths of two formidable figures: David Prowse, the 6-foot-6 actor who physically played Darth Vader, and “Mad Max” franchise villain Hugh Keays-Byrne. And over at our Patreon, we recap this week’s episode of “The Mandalorian” — Boba Fett is back, baby! — and episode three of “The Queen’s Gambit.” Hope you’re hanging in there, and thanks for hanging out with us.
