Episode 151: Coronavirus news, The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, Sound of Metal, Run, Small Axe: Mangrove
It’s never too early to talk about Christmas movies when the world’s foremost expert on the subject, Alonso Duralde, is your podcast co-host. So here we are with a review of “The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special,” even before we’ve carved our Thanksgiving turkey, on Breakfast All Day. Christy, Matt and Alonso also review the excellent “Sound of Metal,” the thriller “Run” and “Mangrove,” the first installment in the five-film “Small Axe” series from Steve McQueen on Amazon Prime. In news, we talk about how the coronavirus is seriously spiking, the curfew in LA County and holiday restrictions as well as some fun news: Michael B. Jordan is People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Mariah Carey has an all-star Christmas special, Edward Norton went on a brilliant tweetstorm and “Wonder Woman 1984” is coming out theatrically and on HBO Max on Dec. 25. And over at our Patreon, we review the Sean Connery Off the Menu movie our subscribers chose for us, 1987’s “The Untouchables,” and recap the latest on “The Mandalorian” and the first episode of “The Queen’s Gambit,” which we’re so glad we’re catching up with, finally. Please be safe out there this holiday week, and thanks for spending some of your time with us.
