We’ve all finally seen “Tenet,” and we can’t make sense of it coming or going on this week’s Breakfast All Day. Christy, Alonso and Birthday Boy Matt had more fun talking about Christopher Nolan’s time-travel thriller than we did watching it. We also review “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” featuring Chadwick Boseman’s powerful, final performance; George Clooney’s so-so sci-fi drama “The Midnight Sky”; and the fifth and last film in Steve McQueen’s “Small Axe” anthology, “Education.” In news, covid vaccines are here, providing a glimmer of hope. We also discuss the deal between Roku and HBO Max, Tom Cruise‘s covid safety rant on the set of the latest “Mission: Impossible,” and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s multimillion-dollar podcast deal with Spotify. And over at out Patreon, we rave and sob over the season finale of “The Mandalorian” and recap episode 5 of “The Queen’s Gambit.” Thanks for joining us, and hope the holidays are treating you well so far.
