Piecing It Together Episodes

An All Points West Podcast

Birds Of Prey (Featuring Chad Clinton Freeman)

On the 116th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins us (two in a row!) to talk about the latest in his beloved DC Extended Universe of films, the Harley Quinn solo movie Birds Of Prey. Following up on the disaster that was Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey sees a newly single Harley Quinn getting into all kinds of crazy adventures in an uneven but fun comic book movie. Puzzle pieces include Tank Girl, Deadpool 2, Joker and Kill Bill.

Revisiting Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, we are revisiting Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (which we covered back on episode 78), Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the golden era of Hollywood. Ever since its release the takes were coming fast and hard from every end of the spectrum. On opposite ends… Both of our guests Joe Black (who loved it) and Chad Clinton Freeman (who hated it).

92nd Academy Awards Predictions (Special Episode)

On this special episode of Piecing It Together, filmmaker Kris Krainock joins us again (as he did last year) to discuss our predictions for the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards. The Oscars are a bit under fire (what else is new) for continuing to not be diverse, but we give our predictions, hopes and some wishes for what should have been nominated.

The Gentlemen (Featuring Chad Clinton Freeman)

On the 115th episode of Piecing It Together, Chad Clinton Freeman joins us to talk about one of his favorite filmmakers, Guy Ritchie and his new film The Gentlemen. A return to his crime film roots, The Gentlemen is a sometimes problematic but always fun classic crime romp. Puzzle pieces include Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Sexy Beast, Seven Psychopaths and The Player.

Parasite (Featuring David Quinones)

On the 114th episode of Piecing It Together, my buddy David Quinones from Bird Road Podcast joins me to talk about possibly the most talked about movie of 2019, Parasite. Bong Joon-ho’s timely social satire about two families on different sides of the wealth gap surprised everyone and has been cleaning up awards over the last couple months. Puzzle pieces include Us, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Eating Raoul and mother!

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot (Featuring Joe Black & Adam Wells)

On the 113th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black and Adam Wells return to the podcast for a conversation about all things Kevin Smith, touching on lots of moments from throughout his View Askewniverse right up until the brand new Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. We recorded this back when the film was toured around the country and it’s now finally out on VOD. Puzzle pieces include O Brother Where Art Thou?, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Dumb & Dumber 2 and of course… Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.

Terminator: Dark Fate (Featuring Brian Garth)

On the 112th episode of Piecing It Together, Brian Garth from the band Black Camaro returns to the show… This time in a private meeting room in the West Sahara Library to talk about Terminator: Dark Fate, recording directly into his monstrous digital creation known as The Monarch. It’s kind of a weird episode, but bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger back to play an old man version of the Terminator makes this a weird movie to talk about. Puzzle pieces include Halloween, Mission: Impossible Fallout, Ghostbusters: Answer The Call and all the previous Terminator movies.

1917 (Featuring Catherine Gonzales)

On the 111th episode of Piecing It Together, Catherine Gonzales joins me to talk about the Roger Deakins cinematography extravaganza that is 1917. The war film is shot in a way that makes it seem like one long take and is probably going to win Best Picture. Puzzle pieces include Birdman, Saving Private Ryan, Dunkirk and We Were Soldiers.

Cats (Featuring Joe Black)

On the 110th episode of Piecing It Together, Joe Black, quite possibly the only man with Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Cats in his Top 10 Films of 2019 list, joins me to talk about this can’t-look-away train-wreck of a film. I call it a train-wreck, but really, I kind of also loved it for what it is… Pure madness. Puzzle pieces include The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Avatar, Meet The Feebles and Rent.

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.
