Missing Pieces

A special episode series in which we look back at movies that were released before the start of our podcast, then give them our usual puzzle pieces treatment as well as a look forward to any movies they may have themselves inspired.

Love & Mercy (Featuring Luella Chavez)

On the 3rd episode of Missing Pieces, Luella Chavez joins me to talk about 2014’s Love & Mercy. The story of Brian Wilson, the legendary lead songwriter of the Beach Boys who is perhaps as famous for his beautiful music as he is for the stories of his mental illness and his multiple years spent in reclusion. Puzzle pieces include The Aviator, Ray and I’m Not There.

Jamie Marks Is Dead (Featuring Chad Clinton Freeman)

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.

This Is The End (Featuring Adam Wells)

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.
