On the 122nd episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones joins me to talk about yet another movie that critiques Capitalism (I’m sensing a theme here), Netflix’s The Platform. It’s a crazy movie about a 300 story prison in which prisoners must survive by scavenging from a levitating food platform that travels down from the top to the bottom. Puzzle pieces include Snowpiercer, mother!, The Machinist and Cube.

On the 2nd episode of Missing Pieces, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to talk about 2014’s Jamie Marks Is Dead. A classic story of boy meets girl, boy meets ghost, ghost falls in love with boy and girl. It’s a very unique coming-of-age film, and one I hadn’t even heard of until Chad brought it to my attention. Puzzle pieces include American Beauty, Twilight, Time Bandits and Carrie.
On the 1st episode of a new side series of Piecing It Together called Missing Pieces, Adam Wells joins me to discuss 2013’s This Is The End from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. With the Coronavirus bringing an end to Hollywood’s planned release schedule for the rest of the year, This Is The End is a fitting way to kick off a look back at movies that were released before the creation of our podcast! Along with the usual puzzle pieces treatment, we also look to see if there are any movies that came after This Is The End that it may have inspired. Puzzle pieces include Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Ghostbuster, Evil Dead 2 and Pineapple Express.
On the 120th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black joins me to talk about one of his favorite actors, Ben Affleck, and his new film The Way Back. An inspirational drama from writer/director Gavin O’Connor, The Way Back tells the story of an alcoholic who finds the way to recovery through coaching a high school basketball team. Puzzle pieces include Hoosiers, Yes Man, Half Nelson and A Star Is Born.
On this special mini-episode for 3/9/2020, host David Rosen checks in with you, the listeners, about the status of Piecing It Together as it enters year 3, as well as his other podcasts Bird Road, Awesome Movie Year and All Rice No Beans. He also provides some news about a surprise new album release that’s coming out THIS month!
On the 119th episode of Piecing It Together, Robert Yaniz Jr. from the Crooked Table Podcast helps me kick off year 3 of our podcast by looking at The Invisible Man. This modernized take on the classic Universal Monster movie from Blumhouse and director Leigh Whannel is totally surprising and does the long tradition of monsters proud. Puzzle pieces include Terminator 2, Ex Machina, Sleeping With The Enemy and Gone Girl.
On the 118th episode of Piecing It Together, Adam Wells joins me to talk about the latest Nicolas Cage freak out, the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out Of Space. Directed by Richard Stanley, it’s a wild cosmic horror family drama and is out now on VOD. Puzzle pieces include The Thing, Annihilation, Suspiria, and Ordinary People.
