Best Video Games of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Will Hines stops by to help me out with the first in a series of special episodes that looks back at the 2010s decade. For this one, we’re looking at our favorite video games of the decade. Obviously this is a very different kind of conversation for this show, but we had a great time reminiscing about a long list of great video games.

The Irishman (My Parent’s Review Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, David’s parents share their reactions to Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic, The Irishman. Get Rich & Sunny’s thoughts on the film’s length, Netflix distribution, which actor did the best job and more all while their dog the Koda Bear licks the floor for 20 straight minutes on this ridiculous bonus episode.

Queen & Slim (Featuring Kolby Mac)

On the 105th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Kolby Mac joins me to talk about Queen & Slim, a love story on the run starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith as a couple whose first date is turned upside down after they kill a cop in self defense. Puzzle pieces include If Beale Street Could Talk, Fruitvale Station, Belly and Get Out.

Knives Out (Featuring Jay Ledbetter)

On the 104th episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host Jay Ledbetter from InSession Film Podcast joins me to talk about one of the most awaited movies of the year, Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. With an insanely star studded cast, Knives Out gives Johnson the chance to not only make a classic whodunnit murder mystery, but send up the genre at the same time. Puzzle pieces include Clue, The Hateful 8, Get Out and Hot Fuzz.

The Irishman (Featuring Kris Krainock)

On the 103rd episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock returns to talk about some real cinema… Marin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The Netflix film is out today after a limited theatrical run (thank you Maya Cinemas and Eclipse Cinemas for showing it here in Las Vegas!) and stars Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Puzzle pieces include Casino, First Reformed, You Were Never Really Here and Rashoman.

Ford V Ferrari (Featuring Sean Fallon)

On the 102nd episode of Piecing It Together, new co-host filmmaker Sean Fallon joins us to talk about James Mangold’s crowd pleaser Ford V Ferrari (or Le Mans ’66 as it’s known overseas). Starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale as the team that got Ford (and America) the historic win on the race track, it’s a great underdog story, even if I knew nothing about racing going into it. Puzzle pieces include Armageddon, The Right Stuff, The Martian and The Fighter.

Motherless Brooklyn (Featuring Joe Black)

On the 101st episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to discuss Edward Norton’s passion project, Motherless Brooklyn. A throwback film noir starring Norton as a tourette’s syndrome afflicted private detective, it’s a bit of a mixed bag… But a bag that’s more good than it’s bad. Mostly. Puzzle pieces include The Untouchables, Road To Perdition, Sin City and Live By Night.

Piecing Dave Together (A Look Back At His Decade)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, my fiancee Gina Mizzoni joins me to celebrate 100 episodes of the podcast and talk about this decade of my life. We talk about our life together, this podcast, producing podcasts, composing music, my albums, our pets, our adventures and more.

Booksmart / Good Boys / Superbad (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, comedian Jason Harris joins me to discuss two of the most talked about comedies of the year: Booksmart from director Olivia Wilde and Good Boys from director Gene Stupnitsky (and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg), as well as the classic comedy they’re both so clearly inspired by, Greg Mottola’s Superbad. We talk about what works, what doesn’t, and get into some puzzle pieces for all three of them.

Doctor Sleep (Featuring Kris Krainock)

On the 99th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock (our resident Stanley Kubrick expert) joins me for Doctor Sleep, the 40 years later sequel to the classic horror film The Shining. Based on a recent novel from Stephen King, Doctor Sleep and director Mike Flanagan tries to answer questions you probably never had about The Shining and expands the mythology in all kinds of new ways. Puzzle pieces include Ready Player One, It Chapter 1 & 2, The Frighteners and the Twilight series.
