    Episode 108: The Photograph, Downhill, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Episode 108: The Photograph, Downhill, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day weekend, and we’re all swooning for the romantic drama “The Photograph” on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Alonso and Matt also review “Downhill,” the English-language remake of “Force Majeure,” which is a huge disappointment; “To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You,” the sequel to the charming Netflix hit “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”; and “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” one of the best films of 2019 which is now getting a wider theatrical release. And over at our Patreon, we recap episode six of “The Outsider” and we discuss the first two episodes of the six-part docu-series “McMillions,” about the fraud surrounding the McDonald’s Monopoly game, which is just nuts. (Both are on HBO if you’d like to watch along with us.) This year, for being our valentines, we give you the gift of podcasting. Enjoy.

    Episode 107: A La Carte With Alex Cohen

    Episode 107: A La Carte With Alex Cohen

    Spectrum News 1 host Alex Cohen has lived a crazy life, from radio to roller derby and everything in between, and she talks about all of it on the latest A La Carte conversation. Alex discusses growing up in the hills of Los Angeles in the ’70s surrounded by parents who taught transcendental meditation, filmmakers and musicians; attending fine arts boarding school with plans to become an actress, followed by stops at Brown University, Portland and Japan; and eventually ending up at NPR, including here in LA at KPCC, as a producer, reporter and anchor. Now, she’s a morning show anchor and the host of “Inside the Issues” on Spectrum News 1 as well as a podcast of her own, “SoCal in 17.” Christy has known Alex longer than anyone who's been on this podcast, but she had a blast discovering her all over again during this lively and wide-ranging conversation. Hope you enjoy, too.

    Episode 106: Birds of Prey, The Lodge, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, Tyler Perry's A Fall From Grace, Oscar picks

    Episode 106: Birds of Prey, The Lodge, Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, Tyler Perry's A Fall From Grace, Oscar picks

    Get your mallets out and take a swing with us this week on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Matt and Alonso review "Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)," which is a complete blast; "The Lodge," which is moody but perhaps not as effectively creepy as "Goodnight Mommy"; the Netflix documentary "Taylor Swift: Miss Americana," which we all enjoyed way more than we'd expected; and we catch up with "Tyler Perry's A Fall From Grace," which is ... a Tyler Perry movie. Of course, because it's Oscar weekend, we have some wishes and predictions. And over at our Patreon, we discuss the latest episode of HBO's "The Outsider," which keeps getting better. It's an honor just to be nominated, so thanks for listening.

    Episode 105: A La Carte With Benjamin Kasulke

    Episode 105: A La Carte With Benjamin Kasulke

    Cinematographer Benjamin Kasulke has had a prolific career, with films including "Safety Not Guaranteed," "Your Sister's Sister," "Laggies" and "The Off Hours." So we had a ton to talk about on the latest A La Carte conversation. Ben discusses growing up in Saranac Lake in far upstate New York, the video store and the boarding school that shaped his early tastes, studying film at Ithaca College, beginning his career as a negative cutter in Seattle and connecting with directors Lynn Shelton and Guy Maddin, with whom he'd go on to work frequently. He also talks about the best advice he ever got, the challenges and opportunities in shooting low-budget movies and what the collaborative process is like with a director. And now Ben has made his own feature directing debut, the hilarious and sweet "Banana Split," coming out this spring. Listen and enjoy!

    Episode 104: The Rhythm Section, The Two Popes

    Episode 104: The Rhythm Section, The Two Popes

    It’s Super Bowl weekend, which is traditionally a pretty quiet time at the movies. The main one opening this week is the Blake Lively action thriller “The Rhythm Section,” which Alonso, Matt and Christy review on the latest episode of Breakfast All Day. We also play catch-up with “The Two Popes” because we realized it was the main Oscar nominee we hadn’t discussed yet (and you can watch it, as well, on Netflix). And over at our Patreon, we discuss the chilling latest episode of “The Outsider” on HBO. Whip up a batch of queso, invite some friends over and join us.

    Episode 103: A La Carte With Vincent Grashaw

    Episode 103: A La Carte With Vincent Grashaw

    Vincent Grashaw is a talented and busy filmmaker who’s currently in post-production on his third feature, “What Josiah Saw.” So it was nice to have a chance to sit down with him for the first time in a while for this A La Carte conversation. Vince discusses growing up in the San Fernando Valley (including the Northridge earthquake), making his own movies and music videos with friends as a teenager, jumping right into the film world out of high school rather than going to college (and the crazy work he did to stay afloat during the lean years), learning who to trust in this business and how his work as a producer on the thrilling, micro-budget “Bellflower” put him on the map in 2011. And of course, he talks about directing his own features, “Coldwater” and “And Then I Go.” Christy so admires Vince’s vision and work ethic so it was a joy to pick his brain. Hope you find our discussion enlightening, too.

My favorite film review podcast

I love Breakfast All Day. When What the Flick was cancelled I was totally bummed. Thank you Christy, Alonso and Matt (and Ben?) for keeping it up! They give a fresh, modern take to film reviews that really feel like 3 friends talking movies without feeling uppity or arrogant. Whether you’re a die hard film aficionado, or a casual watcher, you will enjoy this. Subscribe!

neolib gen-Xers with lukewarm takes

Alonso… The FBI IS bad. And the media is a corporate oppressor and always has been. You are such a precious neoliberal. Yikes dude.
