Top 10 Films Of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell from Awesome Movie Year joins me to countdown our Top 10 Favorite Films of the Decade. Yes, the decade… It’s quite the undertaking to try to even remember the hundreds of movies I’ve seen in the last ten years, let alone try to come up with a meaningful ranking of them… But we did it.

Uncut Gems (Featuring Kris Krainock)

On the 109th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock joins me for the first episode of 2020, a movie that was probably my #1 most anticipated of 2019… Uncut Gems. After the Safdie Brothers blew my mind with their film 2017 film Good Time, they return with an anxiety inducing story set in the NYC diamond district starring Adam Sandler. Puzzle pieces include Punch Drunk Love, Requiem For A Dream, Boiler Room and California Split.

2019 Movies – A Full Ranking

It’s that time of year again… Time to rank ALL the new release movies I saw in 2019. It’s a somewhat silly thing to attempt and quite frankly, once you get past #20, it all becomes kind of meaningless… But it’s always a fun thing to do.

Top 10 Films of 2019 (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Josh & Jason from Awesome Movie Year stop by to countdown the Top 10 movies of 2019. Continuing a tradition we began all the way back in 2018, we countdown our favorites as well as some favorite movie moments of the year.

Bombshell (Featuring Heidi Kyser)

On the 108th episode of Piecing It Together, journalist Heidi Kyser joins me to talk about Bombshell, the story of Megyn Kelly, Gretchen Carlson and sexual harassment at Fox News. It’s a heavy topic but Jay Roach managed to balance the incredibly accurate performances from the likes of Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman with a story that needed to be told. Puzzle pieces include Vice, The Post and Broadcast News.

Top 10 Film Scores Of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, one of my oldest friends and fellow composer TJ Kross joins me to talk about our picks for the best Film Scores of the decade. This is a very special episode for me because I spent most of this decade chasing the dream of being a film music composer, so it’s obviously a subject near and dear to my heart.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Super Episode)

On the 107th episode of Piecing It Together, it’s time for another super-episode! I’m joined by JC, TJ, David Michor, Adam Wells, The Lady-Wan and Joe Black to talk about the epic conclusion to the 9 film Star Wars story in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Of course it won’t really be the end, but it’s still Star Wars so the only proper way to cover it is with multiple guests.

Top 10 TV Shows Of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, it’s a cross-over episode with my other podcast Bird Road! Q and I love talking about TV, even though I rarely make time to watch any of it… So he was the perfect person to talk about the best shows of the last decade. Along with our Top 10s we also get into some specific extra categories and it’s a great, long conversation.

Honey Boy (Featuring Chad Clinton Freeman)

On the 106th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins me to talk about one of his favorite subjects… Shia LaBeouf and his new film Honey Boy. Directed by Alma Har’el from a story written by LaBeouf about his own life, and starring him as his own father… It’s a weird one. And a great one. Puzzle pieces include Private Parts, Adaptation, American Honey and Birdman.

Best Video Games of The Decade (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, Will Hines stops by to help me out with the first in a series of special episodes that looks back at the 2010s decade. For this one, we’re looking at our favorite video games of the decade. Obviously this is a very different kind of conversation for this show, but we had a great time reminiscing about a long list of great video games.
