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 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 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 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 2020. Our most anticipated movies of 2020 include everything from indies and horror to super-hero movies and sequels.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, we are revisiting Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (which we covered back on episode 78), Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the golden era of Hollywood. Ever since its release the takes were coming fast and hard from every end of the spectrum. On opposite ends… Both of our guests Joe Black (who loved it) and Chad Clinton Freeman (who hated it).
