Piecing It Together

An All Points West Podcast

Episode 47 – How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

On the 47th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I discuss the newest entry in the wildly popular animated series How To Train Your Dragon. Concluding the trilogy, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a movie I went into without really knowing the world, but I had a great time anyway (and Ryan helps me along the way). Puzzle pieces include Avatar, Pokemon, Dragonheart and the Before Trilogy..

Cold Pursuit (Review)

In the short time I’ve been reviewing movies on this site, Cold Pursuit, the newest entry in Liam Neeson’s long running old man revenge flick series has to be the hardest one I’ve had to review. Where do I even start?

SPECIAL EPISODE – 91st Academy Awards Predictions

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me to discuss our predictions, as well as our picks and movies we think were left out of this year’s Oscar Nominations. For the sake of time we only did 9 categories (which kind of makes us worse than the Academy themselves who were planning on not showing all the categories on the air this year)… But we’re only doing this episode out of obligation anyway.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (Review)

When the team we’ve come to know as Lord & Miller unleashed The Lego Movie back in 2014, no one expected much from an animated action-comedy for kids based on the beloved building block toys. Sure the duo had back-to-back hits with Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and the 21 Jump Street reboot, but a movie about Legos? How could THAT be any good?

Breaking It Apart 5 – The Wizard of Oz

On the 5th episode of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, two members of the Las Vegas band Black Camaro, TG Miller and returning guest Brian Garth join me to discuss the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz starring Judy Garland. Along the way we also discuss Black Camaro’s new album “Protocol of Dreams” which just came out today. Puzzle pieces include Army of Darkness, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, Benji The Hunted and Pleasantville.

SPECIAL EPISODE – Serenity Part 2!

On this Special Episode, we follow up our 46th episode on Serenity with another hour long conversation about what is sure to be the craziest movie of 2019. My conversation with Kristen Lopez was a perfect regular episode, but when friend of the show Joe Black said that he non-ironically loved this crazy movie, I had to do another episode.

Episode 46 – Serenity

On the 46th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined by a new co-host, film-critic Kristen Lopez to discuss what will almost certainly go down as the craziest movie of 2019… Serenity. This noir-tinged story about a tuna-hunting boat captain (Matthew McConaughey) who is asked by his ex (Anne Hathaway) to murder her husband, goes in bonkers directions you’ll never see coming, all while going off the rails in glorious ways. Puzzle pieces include Interstellar, True Detective, The Breaking Point and Lawnmower Man.

SPECIAL EPISODE – Most Anticipated Movies of 2019

On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined by returning co-hosts Ryan Daugherty and Chad Clinton Freeman to discuss all the movies we’re most looking forward to in 2019. Surprisingly out of 30 picks (ten each) we only had three overlaps, so clearly, there are a lot of movies we’re looking forward to this year including super-hero films, WTF films, A24 films and plenty more.

Episode 45 – Halloween Double Feature

On the 45th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined by Chad Clinton Freeman for a special kind of episode we’ve never really done before… It’s both a Piecing It Together of 2018’s Halloween, and a Breaking It Apart of 1978’s original Halloween. While coming up with our puzzle pieces for the new one, we realized that all the movies that inspired it, were themselves inspired by the original, so we thought this would make for a fun episode. Puzzle pieces include Scream, Happy Death Day and Mean Girls.

They Shall Not Grow Old (Review)

Peter Jackson has taken us to the battlegrounds of Middle Earth many times in the Lord of the Rings universe, but now he takes us to a different kind of battleground in They Shall Not Grow Old… One that existed in real life but we’ve never actually seen before… At least not like this.
