SPECIAL EPISODE – Set Lusting Bruce

12/10/2018
More
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I repost a guest appearance I recently did on the Set Lusting Bruce Podcast. Set Lusting Bruce is a podcast all about Bruce Springsteen. I was a guest for two episodes, the first was a general conversation about music, podcasting and Bruce, but the second was a countdown of the host, Jesse Jackson and my favorite movie music moments. It's a great movie talk and I thought it would be something you'd all want to hear. The post SPECIAL EPISODE –...

Episode 38 – Widows

12/7/2018
More
On the 38th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I get into what was apparently Steve McQueen's life-long passion project, the female heist thriller Widows. Written by Gillian Flynn and featuring buzz-worthy performances from Viola Davis and Daniel Kaaluya, Widows has not disappointed many in the film community. But it disappointed us. Puzzle pieces include the Ben Affleck trio of Gone Girl, The Town and Live By Night, as well as Set It Off. The post Episode...

Episode 37 – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

11/30/2018
More
On the 37th episode of Piecing It Together co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss the newest entry in the never-ending Harry Potter universe, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. I come at this episode as a complete beginner to the Harry Potter Wizarding World, but while Chad has only recently dived into this universe, he actually helped put on a giant festival around the fandom called Ironton Wizardfest, so he was uniquely positioned to talk about this one. Puzzle pieces include...

Episode 36 – Bohemian Rhapsody

11/23/2018
More
On the 36th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Luella Chavez of the Vegas Playground podcast joins us to discuss Bohemian Rhapsody, the controversial biopic of Queen front-man Freddy Mercury. Despite huge box-office success, the movie has been maligned by bad reviews since its release with critics generally praising Rami Malek's performance as the late singer, but trashing the rest of the film... Luella and I liked it like general audiences did... Even if we recognize the film's...

Episode 35 – mid90s

11/16/2018
More
On the 35th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I discuss a24’s mid90s, the directorial debut from Jonah Hill. mid90s is a slice of life... 1990's skateboarder life to be precise. With virtually no known actors except Lucas Hedges, it shows the life of a young kid as he tries to make friends with a bunch of skaters. The authenticity on screen is somewhat of a nostalgia overload, but Jonah Hill does an amazing job of balancing it into a touching, funny film....

Episode 34 – Never Goin’ Back

11/9/2018
More
On the 34th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Josh Bell and I discuss a24's Never Goin' Back, a funny, crazy new comedy about the misadventures of two young female stoners. It's about youth, friendship, drugs and bodily functions. We had a great time talking about it. Puzzle pieces include Beavis & Butthead, Ghost World, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and a bunch of other a24 films. The post Episode 34 – Never Goin’ Back appeared first on Piecing It Together Podcast.

SPECIAL EPISODE – In Memory Of – Eric Stanze Interview

11/5/2018
More
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 18's In Memory Of with an interview with the film's writer/director Eric Stanze. In Memory Of is a wild independent film and was brought to me by Chad Clinton Freeman, who knows his stuff when it comes to these kinds of crazy, unique movies, so I was really glad that we got to cover it on the show. It's been a long while since Episode 18 but I've always wanted to go back and talk to Eric Stanze about the puzzle pieces Chad...

Breaking It Apart 3 – Frankenstein

11/1/2018
More
On the 3rd episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss the 1931 classic Frankenstein! This film and its creature have not only influenced hundreds of films, but pop culture in general. The hardest part of this episode was narrowing down all the movies we had to choose from! Puzzle pieces include Chappie, Edward Scissorhands, Alien, and Ex-Machina. The post Breaking It Apart 3 – Frankenstein appeared first on Piecing It Together...

Episode 33 – Bad Times at the El Royale

10/26/2018
More
On the 33rd episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss Drew Goddard's Bad Times at the El Royale. Ryan and I are obsessed with Goddard's Cloverfield series so we jumped at the chance to cover this mystery about a group of strangers who converge on an old motel located on the California-Nevada border... And while we weren't The Cloverfield Paradox level disappointed, we didn't exactly love our stay at the El Royale. Puzzle pieces include every Quentin...

SPECIAL EPISODE – The Beast – Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf Interview

10/22/2018
More
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 26's The Beast with an interview with the film's writer/directors Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The brothers are based here in Las Vegas, so getting to not only cover their film, but do this follow-up where we discuss some of the puzzle pieces we got into on the original episode was an awesome experience. Josh Bell and I really enjoyed The Beast, so we encourage you to watch it on Amazon and then check out this interview! The post...

Episode 32 – First Man

10/19/2018
More
On the 32nd episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Brian Garth joins me to discuss First Man. Will Neil Armstrong overcome grief and make it to the moon? Will Damien Chazelle make three Oscar nominated, highly acclaimed films in a row with his first three features? Well yes, of course... but that doesn't mean we loved it. Puzzle pieces include Dunkirk, Melancholia, The Right Stuff and Interstellar. The post Episode 32 – First Man appeared first on Piecing It Together Podcast.

Episode 31 – A Simple Favor

10/8/2018
More
On the 31st episode of Piecing It Together, we are joined for a second time in a row by co-host Jacob Tiranno to talk about A Simple Favor, a mystery that comes to us from "the darker side of Paul Feig," the comedy director best known for Bridesmaids and the Ghostbusters reboot. It's a solid mystery that still manages to squeeze in plenty of Feig's style of comedy and some great performances from Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. Puzzle pieces include Gone Girl, Big Little Lies, Lifetime...

Episode 30 – Searching

More
On the 30th episode of Piecing It Together, we are joined by first-time co-host Jacob Tiranno of ChasingCinema.com to talk about Searching, the newest in a unique style of movie that unfolds completely on computer screens. While normally a gimmick like this would seem like something that would get old quick, a great story and top notch performances by John Cho and Debra Messing keep it interesting and exciting. Puzzle pieces include The Social Network, Gone Girl, Memento and Up. The post...

Episode 29 – Mandy

9/28/2018
More
On the 29th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I discuss Mandy... A movie that promises the craziest Nicolas Cage performance you've ever seen, and actually pretty much delivers (well to be fair he's got a TON of crazy performances to choose from so lets just say it lives up to his legacy). At its core it's a revenge film about a man who goes after a religious cult after they murder his wife, but it's much more than that and one of the most unique films to...

Episode 28 – The Predator

9/24/2018
More
On the 28th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss Shane Black's continuation of the classic alien hunter sci-fi horror action series Predator with... The Predator! It's a straight up sequel and not a reboot or something so I wonder why the didn't just call it Predator 3... I just thought of that... Anyway it's a mess of a movie but a fun mess and we had a blast talking about it. Puzzle pieces include Aliens Vs Predator 2 (because if you're going to...

Piecing Dave Together – Mini-Episode (9-21-18)

On this special Mini-Episode series that we're going to call Piecing Dave Together, host David Rosen fills you in on what's happening in his life, his music, his projects, and everything else he's been up to. These occasional mini-episodes will serve to fill in the blanks so that he doesn't have to ramble too much about stuff during the regular episodes.

Episode 27 – The Nun

On the 27th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss The Nun, the newest entry in the ever expanding Conjuring Universe. The horrifying character who made her debut in The Conjuring 2 and Annabelle 2 finally gets her own movie, diving deep back into how this evil Nun character got her start and set off the events that would build the Conjuring universe and a world of unspeakable evil... It's also absolutely ridiculous, hokey and hilarious and a...

Episode 26 – The Beast

9/7/2018
More
On the 26th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss The Beast, a local feature from Las Vegas-based filmmakers Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The Beast originally screened at film festivals under the name Rabbit Days before picking up distribution and getting the name change. It's a crazy, mind-trip of a movie about a play director who lures some guests to his home with the promise of great opportunity, but what they find when they arrive goes from weird to bad to much worse....

Breaking It Apart 2 – 2001 A Space Odyssey

9/3/2018
More
On the 2nd episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, co-host Kris Krainock and I take a look NOT at a new movie and what movies inspired it, but at a classic movie and what movies were inspired BY it… And this time we're looking at the classic Stanley Kubrick feature 2001: A Space Odyssey. Somehow depicting outer space before we even made it out there, and with some of the most breathtaking visuals ever put to film, 2001 recently had an IMAX re-release which really let...

Episode 25 – Eighth Grade

8/31/2018

On the 25th episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Jason Harris and I discuss Eighth Grade, the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-felt new film from A24. The film from comedian and first time writer/director Bo Burnham follows 13 year old Kayla as she deals with Eighth Grade, growing up in today's world and the always scary onset of High School, all while continuing to grow her YouTube video series. Puzzle pieces include Welcome to the Dollhouse, American Pie, Ingrid Goes West...
