On this special episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Josh Bell joins me to discuss our favorite movies of 2020… so far. It’s been a very strange year for movies what with everything going on in the world, but as our conversation should prove, there’s definitely no shortage of great ones.
On the special mini-episode we follow-up Breaking It Apart 7, a discussion of the films inspired by the 1975 classic Jaws, with a short, fun conversation I had with my mom right after rewatching the film. Shark movies are some of her favorite movies. Those and bear movies. And #MBMMFM movies… Don’t ask.
On this special episode I talk to Nikki Corda, the founder of the Nevada Women’s Film Festival. Now in its 6th year, the festival which takes place online starting June 22nd has grown every year and is now making the necessary changes to continue thriving in the post-Coronavirus world. We talk about what inspired her in starting the festival, the challenges of running it, and most importantly, the films (including the excellent The Mustang which we covered back on Episode 79)!
On this special episode we follow up Episode 129’s conversation about Z with an interview with the film’s writer/director Brandon Christensen. A Las Vegas native, I’ve known Brandon for years and was happy to not only see the success he’s had with his first 2 features (this and his previous horror film Still / Born), but to get to talk to him about filmmaking and his influences.
On this special episode we follow up Episode 124’s conversation about Frances Ferguson with an interview with the film’s writer/director Bob Byington. Known for his bone dry indie comedies, getting to talk to Bob was awesome, especially since this movie about a woman whose life spirals after an affair with her student is one of my favorites of the year.
On this special mini-episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones’ daughter Zoe joins me to discuss one of 2019’s biggest movies, Frozen II. We don’t really get into any puzzle pieces… And I’m not sure we exactly uncovered any particularly interesting analysis of the film, but we definitely talked about something for 10 minutes.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together we follow-up our Episode 123 on Bloodshot (which is a great episode featuring Sean Malloy) with a short conversation with my dad. He’s something of a Vin Diesel expert (when he can remember the movies he’s watched), but gets a little side tracked thinking about the girl with the black hair.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Stephanie Barajas of All Rice No Beans, the restaurant podcast that I produce, joins me to talk about our five favorite food moments in movies. As two lovers of food, it was a fun crossover for us to do, especially since this whole quarantine situation we’re all living through has us unable to enjoy restaurants and food in the way we’re all used to.
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 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.
