On this special episode we follow up Episode 82’s conversation about The VelociPastor with an interview with the film’s writer/director Brendan Steere. After a silly viral trailer, Brendan moved on with his career, but eventually found himself wanting to return to this parody of B-Movie horror-schlock. Who would have thought that the movie with the silly title would end up being so fun?
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I’m actually just reposting an episode of the Faces & Aces Podcast I was recently a guest on. I was contacted by the show’s host to join him for a special episode in which we took the Piecing It Together formula and applied it to the city I live in, Las Vegas, NV. Using the format, we came up with a list of movies that represent Las Vegas. It’s a fun talk and I thought you’d all want to hear it. Puzzle pieces include The Hangover, Swingers, Spy and Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, David Rosen and his parents Rich & Sunny recorded their initial reactions in the car ride home from watching Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Rich loves a good action movie… And Sunny loves a bad action movie, so Hobbs & Shaw seemed like the perfect movie to have them on again for.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, film-maker Joe Black joins me for a follow-up to our episode on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood to rank the nine incredible films of Quentin Tarantino. These films are events, and with the amount of excitement and ideas that Tarantino packs into each one, it makes for a great, fun conversation to even try to rank them.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I got the opportunity to interview Scott Evans, an author and inventor who also happens to be the guy who was the real kid that went over that wall to retrieve a baseball from a vicious dog named Hercules in the classic family film The Sandlot. Scott has a new book out called Pacoima Days about the true stories of his youth that led to both The Sandlot and another movie written by his brother, David Mickey Evans, Radio Flyer. We have a great conversation about his book and the movies that inspired and were inspired by The Sandlot
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, host David Rosen and his parents Rich and Sunny talk about their thoughts on the Elton John biopic Rocketman during their car-ride home from the theater. Elton John has been a regular customer of our family’s record shop Wax Trax Records for the last few years so he is a major part of our lives, and we were very excited for this movie.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Ryan Daugherty and I get into the Godzilla: King of the Monsters spirit by discussing our Top 10 Favorite Movie Monsters! Breaking from the regular show format, we instead opt for a Top 10 list style episode in which we each list off our Top 10 from Alien’s Xenomorph to Pan’s Labrynth’s Pale Man and from King Kong to Godzilla himself.
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.
