On this special episode we follow up Episode 60’s conversation about To Dust with an interview with the film’s writer/director Shawn Snyder. To Dust is Shawn’s first feature and won the Audience Award at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. It’s also one of my favorite movies of the year so far so it was an honor to have him on the show as we got into the films and directors that inspired him and his film.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, David Rosen, friend of the show Ryan Daugherty (on his first trip to Las Vegas) and 3 of his friends just decided to turn on the recorder on the ride back to their hotel after catching an 11am screening of Avengers Endgame, the conclusion (yeah right) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A full, super-sized episode on Avengers Endgame will be up on Monday, April 29th, but for now, listen to a bunch of dorks excitedly recount their first reactions.
On this Special Episode, we follow up our 53rd episode on Vox Lux with another conversation about one of the most polarizing movies of 2018. On Episode 53, Josh Bell and I had a regular puzzle pieces talk about Brady Corbet’s film about a pop singer played by Natalie Portman, and now, Kris Krainock joins me to discuss in detail why he thinks Vox Lux is such an interesting and important movie.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I got a chance to interview Ryan Meade, the director of Invaluable, a new documentary on The Evil Dead and its art director Tom Sullivan. Any fan of Evil Dead (and we’re huge fans here on the show) needs to see this film as it sheds all kinds of new light on the making of the films, as well as giving a long overdue spotlight to Tom Sullivan. We also discuss Evil Dead’s inspirations and films that have been inspired by Evil Dead.
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.
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.
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.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, we follow up Episode 42’s discussion of indie-horror film Dry Blood by talking to writer/star/composer Clint Carney. I had met Clint at the FilmQuest Film Festival last year and when I saw the trailer for his film, I thought it would make for a great movie to cover on the show. I was really excited that he was up for a filmmaker follow-up episode.
On this special episode of Piecing it Together I’m joined by returning co-hosts Josh Bell and Jason Harris to discuss our picks for the Top 10 movies of 2018. With only two movies that ended up on all three of our lists, its a great, fun conversation that gets into a ton of movies in what turned out to be a great year for cinema.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I interview director Ben Yonker about “Artificial,” an incredible music video he made for a song of mine. This is something different than we usually do here on the show, but “Artificial” is probably the thing I’m most proud of in 2018, and it is like a film in its own right, and we get into a great conversation about indie filmmaking and figure out some puzzle pieces for the video along the way.
