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

10/5/2018
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)

9/21/2018
More
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. The post Piecing Dave Together – Mini-Episode (9-21-18) appeared first on Piecing It Together Podcast.

Episode 27 – The Nun

9/14/2018
More
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...

Episode 25 – Eighth Grade

8/31/2018
More
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...

Episode 24 – Alpha

8/24/2018
More
On the 24th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman discuss Alpha, the survival epic about the first ever "boy and his dog" from writer/director Albert Hughes. It's a gorgeous looking movie set in 20,000BC with long, beautiful shots of the uncompromising wilderness, acted in an ancient language (with subtitles) and tells the story of the first man who ever bonded with a dog. It might not REALLY be the story of the first man and dog to bond, but it's a great...

Episode 23 – Sorry To Bother You

8/17/2018
More
On the 23rd episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host David Quinones and I actually do our first ever cross-over episode with our other show Bird Road Podcast by covering the politically charged Sorry To Bother You. The story centers on a man in an alternate near future (played by Atlanta's Lakeith Stanfield) who discovers he has a special gift that will lead to a fast rise up the corporate ladder at his telemarketing job. As his career begins to take off, his friends begin to...

Episode 22 – Ant-Man & The Wasp

8/10/2018
More
On the 22nd episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Hunter Farris and I talk about Ant-Man & The Wasp, the Marvel action-adventure comedy frequently described as a lightweight side piece to the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe story that both of us quite frankly like more than the rest of the series. Directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Michael Pena, Evangeline Lily and Michael Douglas, the Ant-Man series mixes everything you love about superhero movies with more...

Breaking It Apart 1 – The Big Lebowski

8/6/2018
More
On the 1st episode of a 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 the first one we're doing is the cult classic Coen Brothers' film The Big Lebowski. The Dude. Walter. Donny. The Jesus. The Nihilists. Bunny. So many classic characters in such a beautifully complicated yet ridiculous story that blends dark comedy, modern film noir...

Episode 21 – Mission Impossible Fallout

8/3/2018
More
On the 21st episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Brian Garth and I talk about the 6th entry in the long running and apparently never slowing down action spy series Mission Impossible Fallout. Tom Cruise, now 56, still feels the need to do all kinds of insane, death defying stunts while saving the world, and for the first time in the series, a writer/director returns for a second installment. Christopher McQuarrie who wrote and directed the previous installment is back to...

Episode 20 – Uncharted: Live Action Fan Film

7/27/2018
More
On the 20th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host TJ Kross and I discuss the Uncharted Live Action Fan Film. Uncharted is based on the hit video-game series, one that always made sense for a film but every time Hollywood started trying to get one off the ground it would lose momentum, directors or actors and go back to the drawing board. All the while, fans asked for the actor Nathan Fillion to play the role of Nathan Drake, and somehow, director Allan Ungar finally made it...

Episode 19 – Skyscraper

7/20/2018
More
On the 19th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I discuss Skyscraper, the new action movie from The Rock that definitely doesn't have Die Hard as a puzzle piece. Just kidding, of course it does, it's the first one we discuss, but the movie absolutely wears its inspirations on its sleeve with The Rock needing to find a way to scale and enter a burning super-tower to rescue his family from terrorists. It's ridiculous, it's fun (but maybe not as fun as we'd have...

Episode 18 – In Memory Of

7/16/2018
More
On the 18th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss In Memory Of, a crazy new independent film from the mind of Eric Stanze. Chad brought this movie to the show because as a connoisseur of all things insane independent cinema (he did create the Pollygrind Film Festival after all), Chad was a fan of Eric Stanze's previous films and wanted to check this one out. I'm glad he did because it's a wild movie and was a really fun one to talk about. Puzzle pieces...

SPECIAL EPISODE – Bird Road 33

7/13/2018
More
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I decided to share Episode 33 of my other podcast, Bird Road. While Bird Road is normally a show about news, politics and comedy that I do with my best friend Q, sometimes we dig into culture and end up talking movies, and on Episode 33, we talked almost entirely about movies. First we interviewed Cristian Ponce, the creator of Frecuencia Kirlian aka Ghost Radio, a really cool animated web series that's influenced by things such as John...

Episode 17 – Sicario: Day of the Soldado

7/6/2018
More
On the 17th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss Sicario: Day of The Soldado. As tensions mount at the Mexico / Texas border, the US Government decides to treat the Mexican cartels as terrorists allowing them to get extra dirty. Along the way we sort of lose the point of the first Sicario... As well as that absolute modern classic's main star, director, cinematographer and composer... But we still have Josh Brolin and Benecio Del Toro playing bad-asses...

Episode 16 – American Animals

6/29/2018
More
On the 16th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss American Animals. It's a true story that's so crazy they had to make a point to tell us in the beginning that it's not "based on a true story," but it "is a true story." From director Bart Layton, the story focuses on a group of four guys, led by Warren (Evan Peters) and Spencer (Barry Keoghan), who bored with their mundane existences decide to try to rob priceless books from a museum to sell on the black market. Yes...
