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.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, I repost a guest appearance I recently did on the Set Lusting Bruce Podcast. Set Lusting Bruce is a podcast all about Bruce Springsteen. I was a guest for two episodes, the first was a general conversation about music, podcasting and Bruce, but the second was a countdown of the host, Jesse Jackson and my favorite movie music moments. It’s a great movie talk and I thought it would be something you’d all want to hear.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 18’s In Memory Of with an interview with the film’s writer/director Eric Stanze. In Memory Of is a wild independent film and was brought to me by Chad Clinton Freeman, who knows his stuff when it comes to these kinds of crazy, unique movies, so I was really glad that we got to cover it on the show. It’s been a long while since Episode 18 but I’ve always wanted to go back and talk to Eric Stanze about the puzzle pieces Chad and I discussed and I’m glad to finally get a chance to do it.
On this Special Episode of Piecing It Together, we follow-up Episode 26’s The Beast with an interview with the film’s writer/directors Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The brothers are based here in Las Vegas, so getting to not only cover their film, but do this follow-up where we discuss some of the puzzle pieces we got into on the original episode was an awesome experience. Josh Bell and I really enjoyed The Beast, so we encourage you to watch it on Amazon and then check out this interview!
